The La Plata County Humane Society is a nonprofit organization created to enhance the quality of life in our community by encouraging the humane treatment of animals. Our philosophy is to preserve the lives of the animals entrusted to us so long as they do not have life threatening injury or illness, are not vicious, and there are funds and space available to provide the animals with a safe and healthy environment. The Humane Society was created to provide shelter for homeless animals, to rescue animals in distress, to assist in the investigation and prosecution of reported cruelty and abuse, to attempt to find homes for unwanted animals, and to encourage kindness and responsibility toward all living things through humane education.
Each animal in the shelter is a unique and precious soul. Please come visit our facility today to find your new best friend!
