Still have to do your taxes? If so don’t forget to help animals!

Posted By elaine on April 12, 2010

Last year over 38,000 of the 158,000 dogs and cats that entered Colorado shelters were euthanized. Although this is a large number of euthanasias, it reflects a decrease of 2,000 from 2007 – thanks in large part to Pet Overpopulation Fund donors!

 In 2001, the Colorado State Legislature created the Fund to provide subsidized spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in underserved areas of Colorado. Now in it’s eighth year,  the Pet Overpopulation Fund has awarded over $1.3 million in grants for more than 37,000 pet sterilization surgeries in underserved areas of Colorado.  Helping is easy.  When you fill out your Colorado tax return just simply check a box and put the amount you would like to donate.  Whether you can give $1 or $1, 000, anything helps.

If you have already sent off your return, you can still help.  Contributions are taken anytime.  Just send your donation to 1805 South Bellaire Street, Suite 400, Denver, CO 80222. Make checks out to the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund. Your donation is tax deductible.
