Welcome to Safe Place For Pets

Meet Sally: Hi, I’m Sally, a 10 ½ year old spayed female Miniature Pinscher and I’m very small at about 7.5 lbs!!

I am a bit nervous around new people and will bark to let you know I am scared! I do love my wire crate and feel so safe in it…I will often go lie in it so I can observe everything going on around me from a safe space. I like to cover myself up in a warm and snuggly blanket and I enjoy my sleep!

I am a healthy girl, but do have some arthritis and take some medications for it. I may be able to just take glucosamine/chondroitin in the future because I get around so great! I also have no teeth so I get to eat yummy soft food and I love my daily servings of green beans! I am super cute to watch when I’m gumming away at my food and soft treats!

My favorite things are lying on your lap or in a sunny patch of the yard or carpet! I don’t really play with toys and haven’t been around other dogs or children much – I really just want to find “my person” again and be your one and only!

If you are looking for someone small and sweet like me to cuddle with, please call Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or email to meet me!!!

Safe Place for Pets is celebrating 21 years!

For 21 years we've been helping the pets of the terminally ill find new loving homes and families to call their own.

As the terminally ill individual lays dying, or has passed on, their pets are often left to grieve, sometimes quietly, other times boisterously. Our goal is to help that pet through the grief, ensure the pet is healthy, and ready to find a new home and family.

A pet's grief can be severe (as can a human's). They grieve losing the one they love most, sometimes their brother and sister pets, their home, and the consistency of their routine of life. We work to provide a new, safe home and family for our pets. We work with our potential adopters to find the best fit for our pets. We love it when a new family unit is created.

Safe Place for Pets (SP4P) works with the terminally ill individual, and when they are no longer available, with family, friends, and/or legal representation who have been left behind. We have touched a lot of lives in our 21 years, both human and animal. SP4P thanks all of our past and present volunteers, supporter, pet partners, and donors. Without you, none of what we do would be possible. We are grateful for you.
