EUTHANASIA FOR THOSE THAT ARE SUFFERING
We understand the grief involved when the time comes to say goodbye to your pet and offer compassionate care to support you through this difficult time. We will take your pet to a warm, quiet room and perform humane euthanasia promptly. This procedure is carried out with kindness and respect. Although we are not set up for you to be present at the euthanasia, you may view your pet afterward if you wish.
End-of-life services are available by appointment only
If you are experiencing an emergency and need same-day service or would like to talk to a staff member before scheduling an appointment, please call 303.751.5772. In a situation with multiple appointments, shelter staff will assess and prioritize animals in distress as appropriate.
The state of Colorado requires reporting and a 10-day quarantine for animals that have bitten a human and broken skin. If your animal has bitten a human in the past ten days, we cannot offer end-of-life services. Please call to discuss your options.
