Grand County Pet Pals (GCPP) was established in 1993 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to responsible pet ownership, animal health and spay/neuter of pets in the County.
Today, GCPP has several programs to fulfil its mission of promoting good stewardship and compassion for animals within Grand County. Funds are raised to provide 100% spay/neuter and veterinary care for all animals at the Shelter as well as affordable spay and neuter assistance to pet owners with financial need through a voucher program.
In 2014, a Good Samaritan Fund was formally established to provide one-time charitable care at private veterinary practices within Grand County to pet owners with financial need.
In addition to the Spay/Neuter and Good Samaritan programs, GCPP engages in the following:
Providing the Shelter with funds for leashes, collars, kitty litter, toys, treats and starter kits for new adopters.
Funding wellness and urgent veterinary care for adoptable animals at the Shelter.
Purchasing educational materials on good animal stewardship to be shared at schools and other events.
Providing Emergency Preparedness Kits for Pets.
We gain support through memberships, general and memorial donations, grants, and donation boxes displayed at many Grand County businesses. We also conduct fundraising events such as a biennial 3K fun run/walk, Pet Pictures with Santa, a nordic ski event and more, as we do not receive County, State or Federal funding.
