Pet Lost & Found
LHS receives lost pets brought to the facility by private citizens and animal control officers serving the City of Longmont, the towns of Frederick, Lyons, Mead, Platteville and Dacono, and Boulder County. Every effort is made to reunite these animals with their families.
The LHS adoption program seeks to place animals in permanent, caring homes. Each adoption includes temperament testing, spaying or neutering, a distemper vaccination, a no-cost veterinary examination, extensive care information, ID tag and discount on training classes for dogs. Adoption fees vary according to age and size (dogs only) of the animal. We offer a reduced rate to seniors.
Foster Care Program
Our dedicated foster families provide care in their homes to incoming animals who would not thrive in a shelter environment. These pets are not yet ready for adoption due to illness, age or lack of socialization.
Through educational presentations and tours of the shelter, Longmont Humane Society increases community
awareness regarding our mission, pet overpopulation, the joys and responsibilities of caring for a pet, the humane treatment of animals and the link between domestic violence and animal abuse. We also offer weeklong Kids & Critters day camps for children ages 7-12.
Dog Training Classes
Longmont Humane Society provides training classes for humans and their companion dogs and puppies as well as workshops in basic care, manners and behaviors.
Through newsletters, brochures and news articles, Longmont Humane Society helps local citizens learn more about animals. Our lending library has a large collection of videos, magazines and books on pet care and training. Skilled shelter staff are available to answer questions regarding many specific pet concerns. The LHS web site at www.longmonthumane.org offers extensive information about the humane society and a "virtual kennel" with photos of pets currently available for adoption.
Pet Loss Support
Longmont Humane Society offers support for people facing the death of a pet. We provide a gentle and dignified death for sick and elderly animals, cremation services and a pet cemetery. We also have a quiet room for families of pets undergoing euthanasia.
City Pet Licensing
Longmont Humane Society contracts with the City of Longmont to provide licenses to all residents for dogs, cats and potbellied pigs.
Safe Keep Program
Longmont Humane Society offers temporary shelter for pets of families who are homeless or victims of domestic violence.
Paws to Listen
