We serve terminally ill people in El Paso and Teller counties by finding forever homes for their beloved pets. We honor our clients and their wishes by placing their beloved pets in only the most loving, life-long homes. We also offer a Wellness Program that provides in-home pet care services to owners facing a terminal illness. Our focus is to provide peace of mind to owners and pets in a time of need.
Our mission is unique and allows us to establish a community where terminally ill people have the support for their pet’s care and quality of life, even if they are unable to provide it themselves. We pride ourselves on our passion and commitment to the animals and clients that we serve. Safe Place for Pets is one of a handful of organizations across the United States doing this important work.
We need monetary donations, volunteers for animal care, events, and administrative tasks. As well as board members; cleaning supplies; and pet food. Please view our Amazon wishlist to see updated needs!
100,000 – 500,000 pets are orphaned every year when their owners pass away, become too ill to care for their pets, or when family members cannot take the pet.
“The peace of mind I have knowing Safe Place will find the perfect family for my pet is so comforting.” — Charlene, who surrendered her pet to Safe Place due to a terminal illness.
