Founded in 1969, Larimer Humane Society is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and provide the responsible care and treatment of animals. As Northern Colorado’s largest open-admission animal care facility, we provide shelter, medical attention and care to thousands of lost, abandoned, injured, abused, ill and orphaned animals each year.
Through our quality adoptions and lost & found services, we place more than 2,800 companion animals into new homes annually and reunite nearly 1,900 stray animals with their grateful owners.
Larimer Humane Society is also home to the county’s only Animal Protection & Control unit. Through contractual agreements, Larimer Humane Society provides full-service animal control for Fort Collins, Loveland, and unincorporated areas of Larimer County, as well as stray-animal sheltering for Wellington, Windsor, Timnath and Berthoud.
Members of the public benefit from Larimer Humane Society’s educational programming. We offer summer camps to school-age children, as well as valuable humane education presentations, shelter tours, scout programs and fun activities for adults, teens and kids. We strive to educate our community on the proper and responsible care and treatment of all animals, including how we co-exist with wild animals.
All They Need is Love
Join us Saturday, Sept.16, 2017, at the Embassy Suites for our annual Top Cat & Tails Gala “All They Need is Love,” a night of giving inspired by the Beatles. Featuring live music by premier Beatles cover band The Fab 4, all proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the homeless pets in Northern Colorado.
This will be a rockin’ evening of delicious cuisine, an adoptable pet parade, live & silent auctions, and live music you won’t want to miss.
Our new shelter is opening Sept. 5
We couldn’t be more excited for the opening of our new shelter. Our hope is to make the big move over Labor Day weekend and open the doors of our forever home to the public on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017.
Please note, because of the move, our shelter will be closed Sept. 3 and 4.
