Relinquishing A Pet

If you need to relinquish your pet, please contact PAWS at (719) 543-6464. PAWS can accept pets only as space permits. Once all spaces are filled, pets are placed on a waiting list. The wait time varies depending upon the animal and space. When space becomes available, we will contact owners from the waiting list to schedule appointments.


These fees help cover costs associated with rehoming a pet such as daily maintenance & care, spay/neuter, current shots, medical, and any other services needed. We are a no-kill shelter and work hard to find homes for each pet. 

Cats and Kittens
Dogs and Puppies

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
