rabbitNorthern Colorado – A Larimer County resident became sick with tularemia in late July and was hospitalized for the illness in early August, according to local health officials. The man may have been exposed while mowing a property in Weld County outside Windsor where rabbits had been plentiful this summer but had recently declined. An environmental investigation of the property by Weld County’s health department found no rabbit carcasses or conclusive evidence of tularemia; however, the mowed property is the most likely site of exposure. Learn more about tularemia and how to keep your pets safe here.

Abbie resized for webAbbie came to us as a stray in June 2014 with such a severe degloving injury that she needed to have her tail amputated.  Only a 2-month-old kitten at the time of her injury, Abbie had a very slim chance of survival.

Abbie was brought to us just in time. Thanks to support from Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation, we were able to amputate her tail and nurse her back to full health. She was soon adopted into a new forever home where she is loved and cared for every day by a staff member of Larimer Humane Society.

We dared our ingenious graphic designer John Metcalf of Perfect Square to come up with an amazing design to showcase our theme for the 16th Annual Top Cat & Tails Gala, “Around the World for 80 Strays.” We bet him that he couldn’t live up to the masterful theme designs from the last few years. If you attended Catsino Royale or Soiree of the Sphinx, you know what we mean. Well, we lost that bet. This year’s design is a homerun. Just looking at it takes us on a whimsical voyage to a magical place where anything you can imagine can be achieved. We’re imagining an evening in which animals find homes, crucial funds are raised for homeless pets and our guests are thrilled by the entertainment throughout the event.

2014 TCT Design

Perfect Square did it again. With this masterful design and creative theme, our gala committee is well on their way to planning an adventurous evening full of surprises around every corner.

With nearly 300 live and silent auction items to explore, guests will be sure to go home with a great souvenir. From stunning jewelry, to one-of-a-kind art, to all-inclusive fantasy vacations, there’s something for everyone in the auctions taking place throughout the evening. Volunteer “inventors” will wow the crowd with more than 10 amazing live auction items, including first right of refusal on an adorable animal up for adoption.

Sunshine on my Shoulders

Lisa and BellaNone of us ever tire of hearing the “Happy Tails” stories, when caring individuals give their hearts and open their homes to pets from Larimer Humane Society. Lisa recently shared her story about Bella, a Yorkshire terrier mix she adopted in early spring.
 
After adopting Bella, Lisa wrote to say, “She is such a sweet little dog. There isn't a shy, scared bone in her body. She is a loving, happy, active, playful bundle of fun. The day we brought her home, she was so excited. She not only had a new home, but her own kitty, too.”
 
Lisa and her husband took photos of Bella entertaining her new friend, Stormy, an 18-pound kitty, who is bigger than she!
 
Lisa said that Bella also loves her stretchy duck toy that squeaks and is perfecting the fine art of walking on a leash.  She also enjoys romps in the back yard, which allows her to keep a sharp eye on the squirrels!  
 
However, what Bella loves the most, of course, is her new family and home.
 
Lisa added, “Bella has brought so much sunshine into our lives, and we are truly grateful to the Larimer Humane Society for allowing us to adopt and love this little tiny ball of fun.”
