The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is a private, nonprofit organization, dedicated to the welfare of domesticated animals. HSPPR is contracted with Douglas County to provide animal care and control services to the citizens of Douglas County and enforce Douglas County Ordiances. Douglas County Animal Services (DCAS) serves the community by rescuing animals in distress, reuniting lost pets with their owners, and teaching people how to properly care for and respect animals. Officers are on duty seven days a week, 365 days per year. After normal business hours, an Animal Welfare Officer is on emergency call 24 hours a day through the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Animal ordinances in Douglas County address domestic animals, so primarily officers will investigate complaints regarding violations such as dogs running loose, barking, aggressive behavior and bites. In addition they will handle calls regarding pets of any kind involving neglect, cruelty, injured animals and many other issues. DCAS will also assist citizens with lost or found animals by taking reports and attempting to identify owners.
DCAS is co-located with the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock, Colorado. The Buddy Center provides shelter and care for strays, adoptions and educational assistance to the community.
