There is no better feeling than placing the animals we help with their new forever families.

Safe Place is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible and help us achieve our mission.

We couldn't do this alone! Since 1996 our volunteers have helped over 1,000 pets find forever homes.

Mission: 

Serving terminally ill people in El Paso and Teller Counties by finding forever homes for their beloved pets. 

Our organization is unique in that animal welfare alone is not enough. It is animal welfare combined with compassion and a desire to ease the burden for terminally ill pet owners throughout our community that provides us with a sense of pride, dedicated volunteers, and adoption results that have made us proud. 

Our mission allows us to establish a community where terminally ill people have the support for their pets' care and quality of life, even if they are unable to provide that care themselves. We are a volunteer-run organization, and we pride ourselves on our passion and commitment to our animals and our community.

Testimonials

Just adopted a sweet little boy from here and I am absolutely amazed by the care and consideration the staff takes in every adoption. Such an amazing organization.


We adopted out a 12-year old blind and deaf Boston here ... what a great group of caring individuals who foster and rehome pets who have been left behind
