Shelter Tours

Visitors seven years and older are invited to schedule a tour of Larimer Humane Society’s shelter and grounds.

Tours are given to school groups, scouts, seniors, community service and faith-based organizations, as well as interested members of the general public. Tours of Larimer Humane Society last approximately one hour and include visits to see our adoptable cats, dogs, and small mammal rooms, as well as our farmyard animal area and other various rooms in the back of the house. Please note that all animals remain safely in their kennels during shelter tours for the safety of the public and our shelter animals.

Is there a fee for shelter tours?
Tours are free to the public; however, visitors are encouraged to bring in an item from our wish list. Of course, as a non-profit organization, monetary donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated! Please note that we do not accept dog and cat food donations; furry friends residing at our facility are fed through a generous grant provided by Hill’s Science Diet.

What size groups can you accommodate?
We are happy to announce that the capacity for our tours has grown considerably since moving into our new home!  We can now take up to 20 people on one tour, though fewer provides a more intimate experience. Please keep in mind, groups of young children must be accompanied by an appropriate number of chaperones per children.

General tours of our facility last approximately one hour. Any introductory or follow-up presentations must be scheduled prior to your visit. 

Are reservations required?
While visitors are always welcome to explore the adoptable areas of our shelter at any time during our business hours, tours must be scheduled in advance.  We kindly request that you make your reservation at least three weeks in advance of the date you’re requesting.
