Finding Inspiration in Every Animal
Since 1997, individuals have volunteered to support companion animals of the Surface Creek Valley community.
Our mission remains the same today; rescuing each from hunger, thirst, pain, injury, disease, discomfort, fear, and distress; while
providing community welfare and giving companionship and support in forever homes.
The Surface Creek Animal Shelter is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization. It operates the Surface Creek Animal Shelter and The Shelter Shoppe Thrift Store both located in Cedaredge, Colorado.
Through its volunteers, the Surface Creek Animal Shelter provides care and support to over 400 cats and dogs each year and strives to find each animal, a forever home.
Ways we accomplish our mission:
Socially conscious sheltering and maintaining our shelter as an adoption guarantee facility
Adhering to the rules and regulations of Colorado’s Pet Animal Care Facilities Act
Providing nutrition, hydration, exercise, and necessary healthcare to all animals in our care until adoption or relocation
Actively seeking good adoptive homes for all adoptable animals
Promoting responsible pet ownership with an active spay/neuter program
Pursuing funds through grants, fundraisers, and monthly sustaining donations
Improving the welfare and sheltering of companion animals in Delta County
Includes vaccination, identification chipping, spaying/neutering, and routine or urgent veterinary care
