Lost And Found

At the Humane Society each animal that is brought in is vaccinated unless the animal has identification such as tags or a microchip. If your pet is missing, you will need to come to the shelter and fill out a lost report and do a walkthrough. We cannot identify your pet over the phone. It is YOUR responsibility to come to the shelter frequently to see if your pet is here. Please call 970.506.9550 for any additional questions you may have.

If you have found an animal please call 970.506.9550 to file a found report. If you plan to keep the animal with you, we ask that you to come in and have the animal scanned for a microchip. If you would like to surrender the animal, you may call your local Animal Control or bring the animal to our facility during normal business hours. You will need to have a picture ID to turn in or reclaim an animal.

Please note: We do not take stray animals form the following jurisdictions: Ault, Eaton, Firestone, Fort Lupton, Johnstown, LaSalle, Nunn, and Platteville. If you live in one of these jurisdictions, please contact your local law enforcement agency or Weld County Animal Control.

Owner Surrender

People feel they must give up their pets for a variety of reasons. Our goal is to see companion animals remain in their homes as cherished family members. We often see companion animals surrendered at our shelter for behavior problems, lack of time, or because the owner is moving to a place that doesn't allow pets. If these situations are the reasons you are considering surrendering your animal, we do ask that you try to see if your pet can better fit into your lifestyle. We offer a lot of information on our Training Resources Page that may help you solve your problems and live happily ever after with your pet in your home. If you are moving, it is possible to find animal-friendly housing. If you must give up your pet; we do require a surrender fee, a valid form of identification and proof of ownership of the animal. Proof of ownership could be vet records in your name or a picture with you and the animal.
