Located in the heart of the south side of Pueblo, the Southern Colorado Spay and Neuter Association provides quality, low-cost sterilization surgeries for dogs and cats and offers other limited veterinary services. Since opening in 1997, our clinic has sterilized over 95,800 animals and operates a no-kill rescue with emphasis on special needs animals.
The best thing pet owners and communities can do to help control pet overpopulation is to spay and neuter their animals. Whether they be privately-owned or part of a community cat colony, our services are available to everyone. The past few years have proved quite challenging in providing services at a low-cost, and donations are essential to helping keep cost low and affordable.
With help from grant funding and volunteers, we operate a kitten "bottle-baby" program that cares for the youngest of kittens (birth through eight weeks) that have been abandoned. Kittens under two weeks old require an intensive regimen of feeding and care, and dedicated staff and volunteers are critical to the well-being and development of these little ones.
SoCo Paw Responders, operated by and a division of the Spay and Neuter Clinic, is a professional and experienced team of animal rescuers specializing in the safe/quick recovery of lost/stray dogs.
With our adoption partner Petco (Pueblo location), we annually help to find homes for cats, kittens, and dogs in our care. Available companion animals can be found on our website and our Facebook page.
SoCo specializes in the rescue, care, and placement of special needs animals. We have successfully cared for and placed animals with diabetes, missing limbs, terminal conditions, and other treatable and manageable diseases.
