      While TCRAS is much smaller than other shelters, it makes up for it with its dedication to improving the lives of animals. We help well over 1,000 animals a year, whether it is finding them a new home or providing resources to the animals in our community. When you donate to TCRAS you are giving an animal a second chance at a life they might not have had without your gift. We can't do our work without the community's support, and when you give, you are the community support the animals need. 

A little bit more about us     

     TCRAS is a limited intake shelter and the county's only animal shelter. We are nestled in Divide at the base of Pikes Peak, America's Mountain. We serve our community through a multitude of programs that include low cost spay and neuter vouchers, community cat programs, and our enjoyable and popular Doggy Day Out program. We are working on getting more regular vaccination clinics in the rural areas of our community. 

     We have 12 staff members who help care for the animals each and every day. In addition, we have 141 volunteers who support our staff and help at our events when we are out supporting our community. We have 14 dog kennels and 18 cat kennels that house about 1,000 animals throughout a given year. 

     Each animal that comes through the doors of TCRAS is given the time and attention that best suits them. We strive to get to know our animals and learn their personalities. We take the time to earn their trust and to show them they are safe while in our care. If a dog needs extra one-on-one time, our staff will sit with that dog and evaluate them to see what resources are needed to help them grow and thrive. If an animal needs medical care we make sure we reach out to our local veterinarians to ensure they have the best quality of life possible. 

     When an animal is adopted we give the new family the resources and support they need for this positive life change. We want to make sure that the animal is a good fit for that family, and that the family is a good fit for the animal. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated at the time of adoption. We send our animals out wrapped in love to continue the love we gave and to start their second chance at a new beginning.

 

Mission

"Fostering Hope and New Beginnings."

Each animal that comes through the doors of TCRAS is given what they need to thrive in the home they are longing for, and the hope they have to no longer be in a shelter.
