Southern Colorado Spay-Neuter Association
Pueblo’s Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic and No Kill Shelter
Sitting on the southside of beautiful Pueblo, Colorado, the Southern Colorado Spay and Neuter Association and No Kill Shelter is one of the areas greatest gems when it comes to the care and treatment of pets!
Originally opened in 1997, SoCO was established to provide a proactive approach to the increasing pet-population in our area. Seeing that the 2 existing shelters were continually over-flowing and in desperate need of help, the founders of SoCO were excited to take such a progressive step in offering low-cost sterilizations to the public. After a few short months of operations, it was also noted that another shelter was still necessary. The extra rooms and kennels that were a part of the existing veterinary clinic that SoCO purchased were quickly used to house homeless dogs and cats. With the veterinary staff on site, we were able to take in pets that would not necessarily make it in a traditional shelter setting.
After nearly 24 years of operation, SoCO still stands tall and proud! We are still offering our low-cost preventative care to the public, and our no kill shelter is still helping hundreds of unwanted pets a year!
