Of course, the Humane Society of Weld County finds homes for homeless animals and rehabilitates abused and neglected animals.
But this is only part of how we help the animals of Weld County. We are dedicated to serving all animals in Weld County by providing as many spay/neuters, vaccinations, educational opportunities and free food as our budget allows. At the end of a pet's life, we also offer painless end-of-life services.

Low Cost Vaccination Clinic
Last Saturday of the Month, 10am-1pm
Our vaccination clinic is a drive-in clinic that includes a check-up on every animal, plus the vaccines selected by the owner.
We have a max amount of animals we can see during clinic. Once that amount is reached, we will start turning people away. Get here early! (but not before 9am)
Our vaccination clinics will be held at the shelter in the parking lot immediately west of the building. Vehicles will be permitted to enter the parking lot beginning at 9:00am. Upon entering the parking lot, you will be provided with a placard indicating the number of animals to be serviced in your vehicle. Once we reach the maximum number of animals we can serve during the clinic, we will stop allowing vehicles to enter the parking lot. Vaccination clinic services will begin at 10:00am.
Vaccination clinics are contact-limited and for your safety and the safety of our staff and volunteers, please remain in your vehicle for the entirety of your appointment.
The vaccination clinic team will retrieve your pet from your vehicle. Please ensure your pet is properly restrained with a well-fitted leash or harness, or in a carrier.
A current vaccination record for your pet(s) isn’t required, but is helpful to ensuring they receive the correct vaccinations. Please bring your most current records – especially for puppies and kittens. If you are requesting a 3 year Rabies, DA2PP or FVRCP vaccine, you must bring proof of current vaccination history.
Vaccinations take a few days to a few weeks to become effective. Keeping pets from interacting with other animals will help safeguard them in the meantime.
Payment is due at the time of service; cash and debit/credit cards are accepted.
If you are traveling to the shelter via public transportation for the clinic, please enter our lobby and advise our customer service staff so we can get you checked in the queue; masks are required in the building.
Free Pet Food Pantry
2nd Saturday of the Month, 1pm-3pm
Any food donated to us goes to our animals. However, we often have a surplus of food (due to specific requirements of our animals or volume of animals). Anything we don't use, we donate directly back to the public.
We host our pet food pantry for those who are in need of assistance. Simply arrive to the shelter between 1:00-3:00 PM on the 2nd Saturday of each month, pull up to the front door, and staff/volunteers will load food into your vehicle or trunk!
We accept any closed-bag pet food. Just drop off in the donation box in the front office or place the food by our front door.
1 in 3 family pets gets lost at some point. Microchipping your pets will increase your chance of being reunited!
We offer microchipping for dogs and cats for $25.00, discounted price for altered animals (proof required) $20.00.
No appointment necessary during normal business hours. Come on by!
When the quality of your pet's life has seriously deteriorated due to old age, severe injury or a debilitating illness, you may decide humane euthanasia is the most compassionate option to alleviate pain and suffering. We do recommend you work with your veterinarian (if possible), to receive guidance on the timing of end-of-life care. We also suggest going to a veterinarian office if you want to be present for you pet's euthanasia process, as our shelter does not provide this option at this time.
We offer cremation along with euthanasia services for an additional fee. In cases when a pet has passed away at home, you may bring them to the shelter for cremation.
Please note, we reserve the right to refuse euthanasia for any animal whose health condition and/or pet ownership cannot be verified.
What to Bring and Fees:
- Forms of identification such as a driver's license or state ID
- Proof of pet ownership such as vet records, tags, photos
- Cash or credit card to pay fees
- Please call 970-506-9550 to schedule an appointment
