Happy Tail: Ruger

Ruger Happy TailRuger, formerly Mikey, was a long term resident of Larimer Humane Society. He came to our home as a high anxiety, fearful dog. With a lot of love and attention, he has since become a wonderful addition to the family. He is great around people of all ages, dogs, cats, and horses. He's our hiking and horseback riding buddy, loves to snuggle and is an all around great dog. I've loved watching him come out of his shell and become a more confident boy. ~Holly

Happy Tail- Reunited and it feels sooooo good!

A277040 Poopie Happy Tail 

I would like to thank the Larimer Humane Society for making my day today.

Back in October of last year, our little "girl" went missing. We posted on sign posts, online, and even filed a missing cat report at the Larimer Humane Society. Unfortunately, all attempts to find our Poopie seemed to fail. Every few days, I would check the Larimer Humane Society website. Today(almost 6 months later), I was looking over the adoptable cats page I saw the unmistakable face of our little girl. I went to Larimer Humane Society and sure enough--they had found her. I was told she had been trapped over 10 miles from where we live. I am so happy that the Larimer Humane Society was there to help us reunite. I thank you, and my family thanks you. ~Myron S

Happy Tail: Abrams


abrams squareThis is our boy "Abrams."  We adopted him over two years ago at Larimer Humane Society.   He had been there twice--once as a surrender and the second time as a stray.  We love him more then words can say.  He is gentle and kind and always brightens our day. We would be lost without him so thank you Larimer Humane Society! ~April 

Brandy was Flooded with Love

Brandy and ScotchyA little over a year ago, the Welch family were looking for a companion for their 10-year-old former shelter rabbit, Scotchy (pictured left, white rabbit). Since Scotchy was a senior pet and very much used to being the head rabbit of the household, the Welches decided to find a young, female rabbit who had a history of living with other rabbits. At the end of October 2013, they saw a rabbit on the Larimer Humane Society website and swiftly went in to see her. When they arrived at the shelter, the rabbit of interest had already found a new home, but they took a few minutes to meet the other rabbits.

As a result of the flooding in Larimer County in September 2013, Larimer Humane Society was evacuating animals from the flood zone and discovered 111 rabbits in a single residence. All were rescued and brought to safety at Larimer Humane Society. After medical examinations, the rabbits were put up for adoption.

The Welches were drawn to one of the evacuees, a little brown bunny that was named Simone at the time. As a result of what Simone had already been through in her short life, she was very leery of people. The Welches took a chance on her and decided to give her the love and patience she deserved.

One year later, Simone who was renamed Brandy, is often carried around the apartment, runs up to strangers looking for lots of attention, and is still very much enamored with her best friend Scotchy. She comes when she is called, knows many tricks and loves giving kisses. She is very gentle to her old pal Scotchy and loves to play chase with former shelter pet Mushroom, the cat.

The Welches say, "We love her very much and she now has an entire apartment to run in and shag rugs to roll around on and a very loving family."
