Mission of Humane Society of Boulder Valley

It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. We were founded more than a century ago in 1902, yet this mission holds true today as we counter animal neglect and cruelty and partner with other animal welfare organizations, sharing our mutual mission of saving more animals' lives.

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley provides shelter and care to more than 9,000 animals each year, with 93 percent of these animals being successfully adopted or reunited with their guardians. Our success rates are enhanced by our behavior modification program, which helps shelter dogs and cats overcome behavior problems, and our foster program, which makes it possible for us to help more animals by providing individualized care to those with special needs.

Our successful adoption programs allow us the ability to open our doors to thousands of animals facing euthanasia due to overcrowding or lack of resources in other shelters throughout our region. The transfer program also enables us to offer a greater variety of animals to our adoption clients. In addition to partnering with 55 regional animal welfare agencies, we are part of the national Rescue Waggin'® program sponsored by PetSmart Charities.

Along with our shelter, foster program and adoption services, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley operates a full-service veterinary clinic, the Sonnyside Retail Store and a Thrift and Gift Shop. Our reward-based, positive reinforcement training and behavioral courses touch the lives of more than 4,000 clients each year. All of these services are open to the public.

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on donations from our generous supporters. We are not operated or funded by any national humane groups or governmental agencies and must rely on contributions to bring our services to the community.
