As residents of Colorado, we are blessed to have an abundance of sunshine throughout the year. However, like all areas of the United States, we are prone to natural disasters too. Occasionally, we may experience a blizzard, tornado warning or wild fire that can put our loved ones in harm’s way.

Before a natural disaster strikes again, please consider reading these tips from the ASPCA on how to protect your pet in the event of an emergency.

Please know that if you are ever evacuated from your home and space permits at our shelter, Larimer Humane Society will open its doors to your pet, providing him or her shelter and care until you are cleared to return to your property.

Stay tuned to this space in the event a natural disaster occurs in Larimer County for specific information on what Larimer Humane Society is able to do within our means to protect and/or rescue endangered pets in our community during the situation.
