Zeus, known as Taz at Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, came in because his owners couldn't care for him anymore. During our physical examination of Zeus, our veterinary team noticed glaucoma in both eyes. Zeus was fully blind due to this condition, and his eyes were very painful from the pressure. Our veterinary team removed both his eyes to ensure he would be in no more pain. Zeus had been a little shy and hesitant before his surgery, but once he recovered and wasn't in pain, his true personality began to show. And look at how happy Zeus is to have found his new home!
This is a Happy Tail story straight from our amazing Animal Law Enforcement team in Douglas County. Douglas County Animal Services got a call from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office because there was a cat found at the home of a person being arrested. When Officer Rice arrived on the scene, he found little Scarlet in shock with multiple injuries consistent with head trauma. Officer Rice rushed her to a local veterinary office, where she was treated and made a full recovery. A sheriff's office employee heard about Scarlet and felt this special kitten would be the perfect pet for her son Jon, and Scarlet was adopted! She loves to be pet and to cuddle up with her new owners. Her previous owner is facing multiple charges, including animal cruelty. Way to go, Scarlet! We are so glad you are safe now and you found such an amazing new home. And three cheers for Officer Rice, whose quick thinking saved Scarlet's life and got her to safety!
Adorable Peanut, known as Bill at Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, was transferred to us for care from our friends at National Mill Dog Rescue. He was very shy when he first got to us, and he had terrible teeth problems. We did bloodwork and gave him a full dental surgery with extractions before making Peanut available for adoption. Peanut’s new dad had been watching him on the website for a few days and finally decided he had to meet him. Peanut now has a big, beautiful house to play in, a sunroom to sleep in, and a new father who loves him!
"She's old. I'm old. It's a good match." We couldn't agree with Patches' new dad more! Patches came to Pueblo Animal Services in August in need of quite a bit of medical attention. Our amazing staff veterinarian removed HANDFULS of bladder stones from Patches, and once she was fully recovered and was feeling better, we made her available for adoption. Patches patiently waited for almost a month before her amazing new family walked through our doors. We are so excited Patches found such a great new home – it was well worth the wait!
This cutie came in as a stray during the Carson Midway Fire, and although we searched high and low for his owners for weeks, no one ever came forward to claim him. Our staff quickly fell in love with this sweet guy and his antics. While at Pueblo Animal Services, Heatmor enjoyed pretending he was a parrot on shoulders, chatting with his human friends, showing his cat toys who’s boss, and as you can see, giving as many kitty hugs as possible. But now he's taken his show on the road. Heatmor was adopted by a loving new family! Way to go, Heatmor!
