Letter from the President & CEO

Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region celebrated another incredible year in 2016! Thank you for donating, adopting and promoting our community animal welfare agency. Your kindness, compassion and generosity made it possible to find loving homes for 10,700 animals and save 17,000 lives. You share our mission - a compassionate community where animals and people are cared for and valued. Working together we can spread empathy and compassion, keep people and pets together in their homes, and bring the joy of pet companionship to families.

This past year, HSPPR expanded our Colorado Springs shelter by adding 16,000 square feet of living space for the dogs and cats in our care and valuable work space for our dedicated staff. The Admissions and Lost & Found expansion now offers dogs and cats larger kennels, less noise, better disease control and natural light - a haven for animals who need a new home or are lost and waiting to be reunited with their family. With an average of 50 animals coming to us in need every day, the expansion made it possible to accommodate them in a stress-free environment with no overcrowding. In addition, we added the Petco Foundation Cat Adoption Center where people can visit and play with the cats as they decide who will be the best fit for their family. The renovation also makes the adoption lobby a warmer, more spacious place to serve our adoption customers. 

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to our generous donors who committed a gift to the Second Chance Capital Campaign to make all of this possible. To date, we have raised $8 M of our $8.3 M goal.  We’ll be completing phase two of our campaign - the dog park and our barnyard - in 2017. If you are interested in learning more about our growth, please contact Randy Harrelson, Development Director, at 719.302.8737. 

I wish to invite you to come by and visit us, meet our dedicated staff, and see your donation helping the animals of our community. HSPPR is not funded by national humane organizations and we do not receive government grants. It is your gift that makes the difference in our ability to provide the best care possible for vulnerable animals. We are so grateful for your generosity and trust in our organization.   

Warm Regards,

Jan McHugh-Smith
President & CEO
