New Shelter Van
Earlier this fall HSPS purchased a new van to replace our vintage 1999 "bucket of bolts" that was no longer road worthy. The shelter van is used almost daily to transport animals to and from local veterinarian offices for spay/neuter surgeries and medical treatments as well as regular trips around Colorado to drop off and pick up animals from other shelters and rescue organizations within our transfer partner network. The old van had become increasingly unreliable for around-town trips, and the journey over Wolf Creek Pass was no longer feasible.

The new van is a 2017 Ram ProMaster Cargo Van that was purchased at a substantial discount because it had suffered some superficial hail damage on the dealer's lot. Even at a substantial discount the purchase would not have been possible without two generous grants that covered ninety percent of the cost. We would like to thank the Animal Assistance Foundation of Colorado and the Doris Goodwin Walbridge Foundation of New Mexico for their generous financial support in helping us replace an essential piece of shelter equipment.

Thanks also to Barbara Rosner who designed the eye-catching graphics. The graphics make the van a traveling billboard around town to promote adoption and promote our various community service programs, which include our spay/neuter and emergency medical assistance for folks who need help with veterinary costs, our pet retention and pet food bank programs to help families keep their pets when unforeseen challenges arise, and our community dog park that provides a fenced environment for dogs to run and play off-leash. For more information about any of these community programs please visit our animal shelter at 465 Cloman Boulevard or call 970-731-4771.
