How it all began...
In 1991, Hela Carpenter started a small volunteer group called Pet Spay/Neuter Advocates to help reduce the population of unwanted, homeless animals in Leadville, Colorado.
In 1998, Hela incorporated the group as a non-profit called Planned Pethood Assistance, Inc. The volunteer group continued their work by fundraising and providing financial assistance for the spay/neuter program, which provided procedures for almost 5,000 animals over the past 20 years!
In 2019, Hela retired and Chris Floyd took over as President of Planned Pethood Assistance, Inc., which is now trading as Planned Pethood Leadville. The new Board of Directors is looking to add to the existing spay/neuter program by offering financial assistance to those whose pets are need of other medical procedures, but may not be able to afford to pay for such care, as well by providing as special events and community education programs.
