Happy Tail! Bindi

bindiAfter two years without our previous feline family members, we were ready for a new family member to join us. We fell in love with (formerly known as Hazel) Bindi! Within an hour, we were home with our girl and she acted like she had lived her forever. She is beautiful, fun, patient and a purrring machine. She sleeps with us at night and adores our two small children and vice versa. Thank you Larimer Humane Society. You do great work and we are so happy you are in our community to take care of precious pets like Bindi until they find their forever homes. You are a blessing and we are grateful. here is a photo of our youngest, Bodhi, with his new feline friend. Just a boy and his cat!

Happy Tail! Hank

HankJust wanted to send you guys a quick thank you for all you do. This past June, I adopted Marley (now Hank) from your shelter, and he is absolutely amazing. He now spends his time lounging on the couch or going on fun Colorado adventures. The job that you guys do is very difficult, but so important. Thank you for bringing Hank and I together... He is truly the love of my life.

Happy Tail! Cleo

CLeo"Our little Cleo was found last June as a stray with a severely broken leg. Although the leg had to be completely removed, she worked her charm on us and we had to bring her home to join our family. You would never know that she had been through unimaginable pain and fear. My daughter and I volunteer with the kitties and when we first saw her in the strays room, her name was Mariposa and she was just so sweet and talkative - gotta love siamese kitties! She runs our house, which is no easy task considering we also have Linus, a sometimes cranky Russian Blue we adopted from LHS in Sept. 2014, a Boxer and a Boston Terrier. She definitely was born with a spare leg because she never lets the fact that she now only has 3 affect how she zooms around. We couldn't have asked for a sweeter, more friendly girl. Her curious personality and her love for cuddling just goes to show what a little compassion and dedication from those at Larimer Humane Society can do to ensure a happy ending for our kitty...and us! THANK YOU!"


Happy Tail! Abby


Our family met Abby at the Larimer Humane Society 3 days after she arrived there. We all fell in love with her instantly. We adopted her the day we met her and she is a wonderful addition to our family! It is obvious that her former family took good care of her and loved her. Abby is a happy, laid-back girl who loves her daily walks and various short car trips. She even has two "cat sisters" and they all co-exist very peacefully. She loves her big fluffy bed in the living room (but has let us know that she would be happy to sleep on the couch, should we want her to)! Abby is a joy and we are honored to be her forever home!

Happy Tail! Lou Ferpigno

Lou CroppedMy boyfriend and I came to the Larimer Humane Society the day before Valentines to find a new furbuddy and we adopted the best one ever. I am a full time student and he works full time so we thought a small animal would be best. Lou Ferpigno (formerly Jager) is the king of the house as he is the only pet and gets daily run time throughout the house. When we first brought him home he was very skittish and quiet except when he was scared, then he would scream!! Now he is the happiest little piggy! He loves to greet us when we get home and insists that it is time to come play and have treats. He loves to pop around and do fast sprints through the living room. He is such a joy in our lives and we are so grateful for our little Guinea Pig.
