Dublin Animal Hospital is proud to work with local businesses that share our love for animals. Certain businesses and rescue shelters have demonstrated exceptional quality and value, which is why we recommend them to our clients. We have listed a few of them here on our Pet Resources Page, so that our clients know where to go for emergency care, specialist care, after-life arrangements, or to find a new pet family member.
Even though we do care for exotic pets, by law we cannot care for wildlife due to licensing. Contact the Wild Forever Foundation for injured wildlife, including wild rabbits, birds, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, turtles, deer, fox, opossum, etc.
If your pet is displaying any of the below symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.
-Seizures, change in mentation/behavior
-Hyperthermia or hypothermia
-Straining to urinate/defecate
When your pet has medical issues that go beyond what we can provide at Dublin, we want to know they are getting the best care possible from our local partners. In cases such as heart disease, kidney and liver disease, immune diseases, cancer, allergies, skin disease, hair loss, neurology issues, physical therapy, and orthopedic surgery, we refer patients out to local specialists.

Pet Remembrance, End of Life Care
If your pet is facing a terminal illness or reaching the end of its life due to old age, a kind and low stress option to consider is in-home euthanasia. A licensed veterinarian will come to your home and administer pain control drugs, then give you all the time you need to say goodbye while your pet is resting peacefully. The veterinarian then administers the euthanasia drug, and your pet will pass away in his or her sleep. Your pet will be much more relaxed and comfortable in their own home, with family and other pets nearby, while also giving family members the chance to grieve privately.
Homeward Bound was founded on the philosophy that our pets are our family and should be treated as such. Homeward Bound Pet Memorial Center, the only full-service pet funeral home in Colorado, maintains an open door facility, and we guarantee that your pet will be treated at all times with the utmost respect and dignity. Our Certified Pet Loss Professionals will work with you and your family to tailor a distinctive pet cremation, a private family goodbye, or a customized memorial service to meet all your needs.
Homeward Bound is proud to sponsor monthly pet loss support meetings for pet parents in the Pikes Peak region and along the Front Range. These meetings are free, open to the public and are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Phone: (719) 636-1036
The goal of Peaceful Partings is to make pet euthanasia easier for both the pet and the family by offering it where they are most comfortable, in their own home. Since not all euthanasia’s can be planned in advance, they offer evening and weekend appointments at no additional fee. Their process is designed to allow the pet’s family to focus on their own grieving process. A clay paw print and or lock of hair can be provided for any of the family members who may desire. Body care of individual or communal cremation can be provided by Peaceful Partings service if desired.

Transitions In-Home Pet Euthanasia
In 2009 Dr Melissa Vollaire developed Transitions Veterinary Services in San Diego, CA. After experiencing hospital euthanasia on both a person and professional level, Melissa saw a need for pet euthanasia in an environment that is safe, loving, and comfortable. Since that time, she has been honored to help guide over 1200 families through a compassionate and caring transition for their pet, in the comfort of their own homes. In September of 2014, Dr. Vollaire and her family relocated to Colorado Springs and she is anxious to begin helping more families and their pets through the difficult decision of euthanasia in the comfort of their own homes.

Rescues and Shelters
If you want to expand your family with a new pet, please consider adopting from a local shelter instead of buying a purebred puppy or kitten. There are literally thousands of animals in the Pikes Peak region in need of a good home. Dublin offers free initial health exams for pets adopted from Happy Cats Haven, Safe Place for Pets, and the Pikes Peak Humane Society.
Pikes Peak Humane Society
Founded in 1949, the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is a private, nonprofit animal welfare organization dedicated to the care and protection of domesticated animals in our community. HSPPR rescues and cares for animals in distress, reunites lost pets with their owners, finds loving homes for homeless animals and teaches people how to properly care for and respect animals, as well as enforces licensing and other animal ordinances.
Tel: (719) 473-1741
Safe Place for Pets
A Non-Profit Organization committed to finding loving homes for the pets of terminally ill patients. All Safe Place animals receive a medical and behavioral evaluation before adoption. All vaccinations are up to date and pets are neutered or spayed before placement. Safe Place ensures that animals find loving homes. They require all adoptive families to complete a questionnaire, spend time with the animal, and allow a Safe Place evaluator to perform a home safety assessment. If for any reason an adoptive family is unable to continue providing care for an animal, Safe Place will find another home for their pet.
Happy Cats Haven
A non-profit, no-kill rescue & adoption center for homeless cats & kittens in the Pikes Peak region. They give their cats & kittens the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their home and time to show true personalities. Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching their deep understanding of each cat with the adopters’ needs and family members. Their ongoing support with classes and online advice continues past adoption. They have placed over 1,000 cats and kittens since 2011 and their adopters can testify to those happy placements.

All Breeds Rescue and Training
All Breed Rescue & Training (All Breed) is a nonprofit dog rescue and training organization based in Colorado Springs. Since 1994, they have been rescuing and finding forever families for dogs deemed unadoptable and facing euthanasia. They rehabilitate all the dogs they rescue, helping them heal from behavioral, medical, and/or training-related issues. Their 98% adoption success rate proves that their positive reinforcement- and relationship-based training works. After you adopt a dog from All Breed, you’re required to take their Pet Awareness Workshop, and you receive a free training class that meets your dog’s needs. Additionally, their trainers provide ongoing support for all adoptees, including complimentary email and phone consultations. Many adoptees also purchase one or more of their comprehensive training courses, which are available to the public, and through which they train hundreds of local dogs each year.
