Seeing Is Believing

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley provides shelter and care to more than 8,000 animals each year, with 92 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.
