Following the recommendations of the CDC and the State of Colorado in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus),

the Surface Creek Animal Shelter will be adopting pets and accepting stray by appointment only.

We are also taking the following precautions:

  • masks required

  • no children congregating

  • six-foot separation between clients, volunteers, and staff

  • only one person in a cat room at a time (due to six-foot issue)

  • all surfaces are being sanitized

Please call 970-856-2346 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer calls and respond to emails and messages in a timely manner.

We appreciate your support and understanding.

Welcome to

Surface Creek

Animal Shelter

Surface Creek Animal Shelter is a wonderful adoption guaranteed shelter located in western Colorado.

We have 8 dogs runs and can house about 30 cats.

Our small town, Cedaredge, has about 2000 people. The Shelter is operated by volunteers, through donations and grants.



With most people staying home during the Coronavirus outbreak, now is a good time to consider adopting a companion or becoming a foster home.  What better way to spend your time at home than giving one of our pets a loving home or break from shelter life.


We have many pets that would benefit from time away from the shelter.  Please contact us for details.

Thank You!

Thank you to Helman Motors, Kevin Parks Insurance, and Delirious Liquors.  Each donated matching funds

to the Shelter for CO Gives Day on 12/8/2020.

We appreciate your support!
