As you may have seen in the news, more than half a million Coloradans experienced a cut to their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits this month. These emergency payments began because of the pandemic and became essential for families amid rising food, gas and housing costs.
The economy and rising inflation have added to the financial burden of families with already tight budgets. It is unimaginable that any one of us could become unable to provide food, shelter or medical care for our families and pets – but this is the reality many people are now facing. When families are in crisis, it may seem like the only choice is to surrender their beloved pet(s).
We are here to help.
We strive, every day, to fulfill our mission to keep pets and people together. Through
our Safety Net services, we remove barriers that pet guardians may encounter so families in crisis can keep their pets where they belong: with them.
We want you to know that we will continue offering emergency pet boarding, pet food and supplies, discounted veterinary care, and training and behavior support to our community and their pets in their greatest times of need.
Together, with your support, we will continue to be here when our neighbors need us. We’ll be here to keep pets and people together
