Pets provide comfort during tough times, so it is important now more than ever to help people keep their pets so they don't have to storm the tragedy of losing their home and/or job alone. We know quite a few pet owners would rather go hungry or share their food with their pet, rather than have the pet go hungry. Our mission is to help provide food for the pets, to keep food on the table for people. We offer continuous food assistance to pets in the Colorado Springs/El Paso County area and emergency pet food services to the state of Colorado.
We are advocates for spaying and neutering pets and the humane treatment of all beings, including humans. We work with several local food pantries, churches, human services agencies, animal rescues, and the animal shelter in an attempt to reach those most in need. Our services include:
- A pet food bank for families & organizations in need
- A pet food and supplies bank for the homeless people of Colorado Springs
- A pet supply service from collars, leashes, beds, and other pet care products
- Offering referrals to low cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics
- Offering referrals for those seeking pet friendly housing
- Prescription pet food assistance
- Low-cost dog grooming services. If you are a groomer wishing to help us offer discounts to struggling pet owners, please feel free to CONTACT US.
- Pet deposit assistance for those who have lost their home due to unintentional job loss or foreclosure. This program is on hold as we locate funding.
- Have a mobile shots clinic so we may offer low cost vaccinations in various locations within the state of Colorado. This program is on hold as we locate a RV or motorhome and funding.
- We will have more programs to benefit both the pet and pet owner in the future. Through your generous donations and support, by volunteering, hosting pet food drives or helping us in other ways, we can make this happen. With the community's help, we can help the community.
With the economy in a recession, this special program is helping many families cope with enormously difficult times. Ensuring that our community's companion animals never go hungry is one of the most basic, and most critical, aspects of animal welfare.1 By offering pet food assistance we hope people are rest assured they're able to keep their beloved pet during their hardship and stay together as a family. We also hope to lessen the burden of homeless pets on local animal shelters and rescue groups.

“We lend a helping paw.“ We seek to provide temporary food, care, and maintenance assistance for pets, whose owners might otherwise be forced to surrender their pets to a shelter. We also attempt to offer food assistance to those managing and caring for stray and feral cat colonies. Our purpose is to help disadvantaged pet owners keep and maintain their beloved pets, as pets are usually viewed as part of the family and often offer emotional support, which is essential to a person's well being.
