Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don't want to spay/neuter the pet I adopt?
We are required by Colorado law to spay/neuter all dogs and cats adopted from our shelter.
Spaying and neutering pets is a critical part of responsible pet ownership, as it helps control the pet population and prevent the birth of unwanted litters. As such, we require all dogs and cats adopted from our shelter to be spayed or neutered before they go to their new homes.
We understand that some adopters may have concerns about spaying or neutering their pet, but we assure you that it is a safe and routine procedure that is beneficial for your pet's health and well-being. In addition, we provide information and resources to help you make an informed decision about spaying or neutering your pet.
If for some reason you are unwilling to spay or neuter your pet, we may not be able to proceed with the adoption process. However, we encourage you to discuss your concerns with our staff, who are happy to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance on responsible pet ownership.
