Larimer Humane Society is funded by three main sources*:
- Individual donations and fundraising events (e.g., Top Cat & Tails Gala and the Fire Hydrant 5K Walk/Run & Pet Expo), bequests and grants. Visit our Online Donation page to learn more about how you can help. (Approximately 25% of annual budget)
- Fees generated from services we provide such as adoptions, holding stray animals, and pet licensing. (Approximately 34% of annual budget)
- Animal Protection and Control contracts maintained with Fort Collins, Loveland, and Larimer County. Each municipality contracts with Larimer Humane Society separately to enforce local animal ordinances in their respective areas, assist police and fire with animals during emergencies, as well as pick up stray and injured animals. (36% of annual budget)
*In addition to these sources, 5% of annual budget comes from interest, gains/losses.
