Pet Overpopulation Fund
Last year about 176,000 dogs and cats enter Colorado shelters and, sadly, more than 33,000 animals were euthanized. To curb pet overpopulation and reduce euthanasia of these animals, the Colorado State Legislature created the Pet Overpopulation Fund in 2001. Since then, the generosity of the citizens of Colorado has enabled the Pet Overpopulation Fund to grant nearly $1.8 million to 60 community coalitions of veterinarians and animal care and control agencies. With these grants, the Fund has subsidized more than 48,000 sterilization surgeries in underserved or rural areas of the state where there are limited humane and veterinary services and economic resources.
