Tax-time is an opportunity to fight Colorado pet overpopulation

Colorado

All across Colorado, people are gathering important financial documents to prepare their state and federal tax returns. While filling out tax forms, residents are reminded how a little box can make a big difference to Colorado's pets and their families.

The Pet Overpopulation Fund is a Colorado charitable tax check-off program. Donations to Colorado's Pet Overpopulation Fund are distributed through a grant application process to fund spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in underserved areas of Colorado.

"Since 2002, more than $1.2 million has been raised through the check-off program to fund over 34,000 surgeries," said Dr. Kate Anderson, CPOF board member and Pet Animal Care Facilities program administrator at the Colorado Department of Agriculture. "Spaying and neutering is an important step to prevent pet overpopulation; each year thousands of animals are euthanized because there aren't enough homes and families to care for them."

In 2008, the Pet Overpopulation Fund awarded $225,000 in grant funds to 24 animal care coalitions in underserved areas of Colorado. With more taxpayer donations, the Pet Overpopulation Fund can do even more to control pet overpopulation and reduce euthanasia.
