Welcome to Safe Place For Pets


Meet Sammy: Hi, my name is Sammy. I’m an 8-year-old neutered male black and white tuxedo cat, and I’ve heard people say how handsome I am. I do love to be petted and loved. I’m a snuggle-bum. I’m kind of confused and scared about losing mom and having to find another person to love and be loved by but I need a new home. Do you think it might be yours? I promise that I’ll love you. Please come to the Safe Place Welcome Center in Manitou Springs and let me show you for yourself how special I am.

Visit our available pets.

We love getting updates on pets that have been helped through Safe Place. You can read some of the latest updates on our Success Stories page.

Safe Place for Pets is looking for anyone interested in helping us enhance our presence on Social Media. We need ideas to help us gain new volunteers and donors, more surrenderer and wellness clients who can use our services and in general, gain more exposure. As a Social Media committee member, you will be working with the Placement team to post new pets in program, adoptions, success stories, the Development team to post upcoming events on the calendar and highlight them as they come near, with Marketing team to re-use any materials (logos, images, etc) they may have for advertising of events, etc., and more. If you are interested in becoming a Social Media committee member, send an email to info@safeplacepets.org. If you are a new volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Application.
