PAWS For Life

PAWS for Life’s mission is to help lost or unwanted animals; to return lost ones to their owners whenever possible or after having them spayed or neutered, place them in good homes; and to educate the public about intelligent and humane treatment of animals.

PAWS is a private animal shelter. We operate on “limited admission” based on space, staffing and adoptability.

Long Term Lovables

Long Term Lovable-Fudge Brownie

Handsome 5-year-old Fudge Brownie came to us with 5 of his puppies and mama Camille. Fudgy is one of a kind and definitely a staff favorite. He can easily make your day better by a flash of his smile and his contagious fun-loving personality. Everyone is his best friend!

Fudgy loves long walks and is great on a leash. He also loves to sit and snuggle.

If you would like to meet this amazing pup, please call PAWS at (719) 543-6464 or email us at

Your gifts make sure every animal gets a chance.
When you support PAWS for Life, you are helping to provide dogs, cats, and critters with food, available medical care, and shelter until we can find them homes of their own.

We rely on the generous financial support of generous supporters like you to provide animal and community programs and services to the Pueblo Community. As a nonprofit organization, all gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
