We are a 100% volunteer organization. Without the support of dedicated volunteers in the community, Safe Place would not have been able to help over 500 pets of terminally ill persons since it started in 1995. There are many ways volunteers can help us meet our mission. An online volunteer application is available via the link to the right or you can call our main number 719-359-0201.
