Upcoming Events

Dear PAWS supporters and animal lovers …Tickets for our PAWS FOR PINTS event are now on sale for $40.00 each at or at the shelter – 800 N. Pueblo Blvd. Pueblo

PINTS FOR PAWS will be held on Friday, October 14th at the Pueblo Union Depot. Not only will you have a wonderful time celebrating the 43 + years of amazing work PAWS for Life has done for the voiceless animals in our community, but you will also feel great about helping us continue this important and necessary work.

PAWS for Life is a non-profit, limited admission, No-Kill Animal Shelter that relies on the public’s support to fund life-saving efforts. The funds raised from events like PINTS FOR PAWS will enable us to continue to rescue, care for, and place homeless dogs and cats into loving homes.

This fun filled evening will include Beer Tasting from 5:00-7:30 pm from your favorite breweries, delicious appetizers, music and entertainment by DJ Ronnie Rodriguez, Amazing Silent & Live Auctions, Cornhole Fun and let’s not forget a special visit from our adorable Shelter Dogs. Our furry friends are counting on you and promising a tail waggin’ good time!

We are still looking for Breweries to join in the fun! Sponsors and auction items needed. Please email for more information.

Thank you for supporting our lifesaving mission. We can’t do this without you! 

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.

Spotlight on Bella

Bella is an American Bully who has a heart as big as her booty. Bella is house trained, loyal and enjoys playing the role of a couch potato after a long day of fetch. Bella has been introduced to other dogs, but slow introductions are recommended. She would do best with a medium to large, energetic playmate who likes to play. She would also do best in a home without young children. Bella takes her job as the protector of her home and family very seriously so she will need slow, proper introductions to strangers and management at the front door.  This big beautiful girl needs a strong leader, structure and routine, but will thrive with the right family! Bella is a great big teddy bear with all sorts of love to give. Bella has quite the story and we would love to share it with you.

Want to learn more about this sweet girl? Give us a call so we can really tell you just how special our girl is. Bella is in foster so you will need to schedule a meet and greet in advance.
