Animal Protection and Control Follow Up on Pit Bull in Larimer County

unnamed

An officer with Larimer Humane Society’s Animal Control and Protection unit revisited a residence in unincorporated Larimer County Thursday to ensure that proper improvements had been made for the care and shelter of a pit bull discovered tied to a tree with inadequate shelter for the current weather conditions.

According to Bill Porter, Director of Animal Protection and Control, the owner has been extremely compliant throughout the investigation and has built a shelter for the dog. Straw and blankets for bedding were provided by Larimer Humane Society to better protect the dog from the elements. As well, the owner is continuing to make improvements to the dog’s situation and is working Fort Collins Cat Rescue and Spay/Neuter Clinic to provide vaccines and sterilization for this particular dog as well as their other unaltered dogs on the property.

Thank you all for your concern regarding the pit bull in Fort Collins. As promised, here is both the information regarding the timeline of our involvement in the case as well as an update:

 

Larimer Humane Society's Animal Protection and Control division was contacted in March of this year initially for a barking dog complaint, which we do not enforce in the county after the contract cuts several years ago. The complaint was then changed to a welfare concern. We did follow up on the welfare check and the shelter was adequate for the time of year.

Aussie

Aussie

Aussie came to Larimer Humane Society as a puppy, surrendered by a breeder due to a birth defect called “megaesophagus”. The ailment makes it difficult for animals to eat and digest their food, which often presents additional medical complications.

Knowing that this condition could be treatable with surgery, Larimer Humane Society’s veterinary staff knew just where to turn. Skilled surgeons at Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital were able to correct Aussie’s condition in order to help him eat and digest more naturally.

A little bigger and after having made a full recovery, Aussie’s adoptive family reports that he has a new issue -- a serious case of the wiggles! This joyful pup finds it almost impossible to keep still.

Howard

Howard

At only one week old, this precious Pit Bull mix puppy arrived  at  our shelter from Cheyenne with his eight littermates – all orphans. His mother did not survive the births. He was immediately placed with one of Larimer Humane Society’s skilled foster families.

With our generous and patient volunteers providing more than 21,000 hours of foster care in their homes, Larimer Humane Society was able to give 524 animals the unique care they needed last year--whether it was to help a pet recover from surgery or illness, increase socialization, or as in Howard’s case--receive round-the-clock care to grow big and strong enough for adoption. 

Howard managed not only to grow big and strong, he also decided he rather liked life with them. His zeal for life and puppy charm convinced them that he was there to stay. These days, you’re most likely to find Howard at the dog park with the family he adopted.

Yazzi

Yazzi

At just two months old, Yazzi’s owner left her in the care of a friend and never came back to get her. Consequently, this sweet Domestic Shorthair ended up at Larimer Humane Society in search of a second chance.

Fortunately for Yazzi, that didn’t take too long. Just a few days after she landed on the adoption floor, the sweet girl had found her perfect match. 

Today this feline is content with life’s simple pleasures. Her favorite toy is a narrow strip of leather she plays with at 3 a.m.!  Her favorite game is watching her owner put things away and then sneaking around to “unpack” them later! Her greatest happiness is sitting on her cat tree gazing at the world outside.
