Happy Cats Haven
Adopted my cat, Opie, from HCH and it was such a pleasant experience... especially in comparrison to the shelter I got my other cat from. HCH was clean, roomy and well equiped to house the cats in their care. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and encouraged us to take a class on "play training" with our kitty. We've had him for 6 months now and couldn't imagine not having him. Go and adopt a new best friend!

Mill Dog Rescue Network
It's a great rescue with really nice people....however they charge around $300 for one dog. This made me angry because if you are all about the dogs then why would you charge someone $300 for a dog that desperately needs a home. I understand that they only want people who can afford to keep the dogs, but even middle class families can afford to comfortably take care of a dog, but that is still a lot of money.

El Paso County Animal Control
I recently asked an Irish Wild Hound named Winnie from here and she is super sweet, she has some anxiety issue but the friendly staff helped me understand all my options to help her. Winnie will be a lifetime friend, thank you.

Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
