Pagosa Springs is absolutely beautiful and a wonderful place to live
In Pagosa Springs, things are refreshingly authentic.
Nestled in southwest Colorado at the base of the Continental Divide, Pagosa Springs is one of the state’s last undiscovered gems. Known for its amazing hot springs, abundant sunshine and small town feel, Pagosa Springs offers plenty of opportunities to soak up the scenery and enliven your spirit. Enjoy September's ColorFest, explore the four magnificent waterfalls, or lace up your hiking shoes and trek along the wildflowers on the many hiking trails in the area. In the summer, biking rafting, kayaking, and lazy floating down the San Juan River are common activities for locals and visitors. In the winter, Wolf Creek Ski Area (just a short drive outside of town) boasts the most snow in Colorado, averaging 450 inches of snowfall annually.
The San Juan Vet Hospital mission statement:
To provide the best quality veterinary medicine possible and the widest range of large and small animal services in Pagosa Springs, all delivered by the highest trained staff. We strive to deliver care in a compassionate, sensitive manner, with the comfort of the animal foremost.
