About the Humane Society of Boulder Valley

It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people.

Founded in 1902, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (HSBV) provides a safety net to animals in need in our community and beyond. Each year, HSBV provides shelter and care to nearly 7,000 shelter animals, helping them find their new beginnings in the Boulder community or working to protect happy and healthy relationships, and supports thousands of existing pet-guardian relationships in our community through our Safety Net services.

Our open-admission, socially conscious shelter provides care to any animal who comes to our facility. Open seven days a week, HSBV readily accepts community animals as guardian surrenders, stray pets, and transferred animals. The Transfer program enables us to offer a greater variety of animals to our adoption clients. The placement rates of our Adoption program ensure our doors are open to thousands of transfer animals seeking placement from overcrowded and under-served shelters in our state and region.

The HSBV Shelter Medicine program provides critical services to ensure the health and well-being of every shelter animal. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley also operates a full-service public veterinary clinic. Funds generated through the public veterinary clinic provide resources to ensure HSBV’s Shelter Medicine program has the resources necessary to support shelter animals.

Utilizing science-based positive reinforcement techniques and methodologies, our Training and Behavior Center provides behavioral support to animals at HSBV, helping ensure their success in their future homes. HSBV’s Training and Behavior Center also operates a public training center with group classes, expert presenters and professional seminars, private consultations, and access to certified trainers.

A safety net for our community animals and their guardians, HSBV offers life-changing resources during times of hardship, working hard to support happy and healthy relationships and prevent pet relinquishment when possible. Our Safety Net program includes temporary pet housing, free pet food and supply share, discounts on behavior support, and grants and subsidized veterinary services for urgent and wellness care. Learn more about our Safety Net here.

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on donations from our generous supporters. HSBV animal care efforts are also supported by the funds generated through our Thrift Shop and our Sonnyside Retail Store. HSBV is a private non-profit and rely on contributions to bring our essential services to the community; we are not operated by any national or regional humane groups or governmental agencies.
