The Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (CPOF) was created by the State legislature in 2001 to curb pet overpopulation and reduce euthanasia of surplus, unwanted or abandoned dogs and cats.
Thanks to Colorado's concerned citizens who contribute to this effort, CPOF is able to make grants to local programs that reduce pet overpopulation in underserved areas of our state. With funding from CPOF, animal care and control organizations and veterinarians are working together to reduce unwanted litters of puppies and kittens and to provide shelter animals with medical care and microchip identification.
There are two ways you can help CPOF save animals:
Donate on your Colorado Tax Form
More than $1.6 million have been donated since 2001 by Colorado taxpayers like you to subsidize the spay/neuter surgeries of 45,000 cats and dogs owned by income-qualified Colorado citizens!
Purchase an Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet License Plate
More than $76,000 in revenue from plate sales were generated in the first year to spay/neuter and provide medical treatment and microchip identification for shelter animals!
