Commend Animal Welfare Group for Rescuing Unwanted Pets


Target: San Luis Valley Animal Welfare Society

Goal: Applaud the Colorado animal welfare group for their dedication in rescuing unwanted pets

The founders of the San Luis Valley Animal Welfare Society, Aileen Peeks and her husband Frank Peeks, have dedicated their lives to rescuing every unwanted animal that they can and placing them in loving, caring homes. In the area southwest of Colorado Springs, animals face extreme cruelty nearly everyday. Many animals such as cats and dogs are dumped in the middle of the street, some get run over by a moving vehicle, and some are even used as target practice. Aileen Peeks and her husband Frank took it upon themselves to take any abused or unwanted animals into their homes and nurture them back to full health. The main mission of the San Luis Valley Animal Welfare Society, the biggest animal welfare organization in the valley, is to find these animals a loving home.

In early March of 2014, the organization rescued a 3 month old puppy who suffered from a bullet wound to the shoulder and a sliced throat. Although they were able to save this puppy from its intensive injuries, this organization aims to help and save animals who are at risk of being harmed and keep them away from people who intend on hurting them.

Every Saturday for the past 10 years, the Peeks have made the three hour journey to the nearest adoption fair. Aileen Peeks often works 22-hour Saturdays at the adoption fair to ensure that the animals get every chance available to become adopted. In the past decade, she has only missed a total of four saturdays. The San Luis Valley Animal Welfare Society have rescued nearly 8,000 animals since they were founded in 2000.

The Peeks’s devotion towards the welfare and safety of animals is incredibly admirable. Sign this petition to commend their devotion in rescuing and saving animals in need.


Dear San Luis Valley Animal Welfare Society,

I must commend you for all of your hard work and devotion to rescuing and saving thousands of unwanted or abused animals. I have recently read about the 3-month old puppy who suffered a bullet wound and a sliced trachea. If the puppy had not been saved by this organization, it would most likely be dead. You have saved this puppy’s life and they lives of so many other cats and dogs. By nurturing them and preparing them for adoption, you have given them each a chance toward a better and brighter life.

Since the organization was founded in the year 2000, you have rescued and found loving homes for nearly 8,000 cats and dogs. Your efforts are making an immense impact in the lives of these animals, and I would like to thank you once again for all that you have done.
