To do this, the nonprofit came up with this year's theme of South Pawcific for a tropical getaway and evening in paradise. The evening will feature a gourmet dinner, silent and live auctions and live tropical music from Fort Collins band Toco Bay.

"We try to do something fun and different every year," said Danielle Hastings, marketing and community relations manager for the Larimer Humane Society. "We take something popular, spin it and make it our own special event."

Strife at no-kill rescue leads to surrender of animals

B9318963802Z.1 20150924094249 000 GSBC19RUU.1 0Four dogs from a Fort Collins no-kill dog rescue are in limbo after being surrendered to the Larimer Humane Society this week following the departure of three of the rescue’s four staff members.

Eric Boehmer, medical director of All Aboard Animal Rescue and veterinarian at Animal Hospital of Colorado, asked Animal Protection and Control to pick up three adult dogs and one puppy from his veterinary practice on Monday.

Boehmer, who is the rescue’s only remaining staff member, signed owner surrender paperwork for the animals Tuesday, making them eligible for Larimer Humane’s adoption process.

As of Wednesday, all four dogs were undergoing the behavioral and medical evaluations standard at Larimer Humane Society before an animal can be put up for adoption.

Humane Society spokeswoman Danielle Hastings said shelter staff believe the dogs will pass the evaluations. Though the Humane Society is not officially designated a no-kill rescue, the shelter had a live release rate of 87 percent of the 2,447 animals it took in last year.

Larimer Humane Society will help celebrate the opening of the Mehaffey Dog Park

InTheNewsThe Larimer Humane Society doesn't want to forget the dogs when Mehaffey Park is dedicated Aug. 1.  The nonprofit will be co-presenting the grand opening of the Mehaffey Dog Park on the west side of the new 69-acre park in northwest Loveland with contests, giveaways, dog adoptions and pet-related vendor booths.  The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park, 3285 W. 22nd St.

"It gets people excited and lets people know about us," said Danielle Hastings, marketing and community relations manager for the Larimer Humane Society. The dog park — a city facility within the larger park of fields, play areas, trails and shelters — covers almost an acre and features shade structures and natural boulders for the dogs to climb. The east side is for shy and small dogs, and the west side is for the rest. There also is water available for the dogs to drink.

"We really hope that the Loveland residents and their furry, four-legged friends will enjoy this for years to come," said Elizabeth Anderson, parks and recreation director for the city of Loveland, adding that urban dog parks fill a niche in recreation amenities. "They need a place to have them off leash and recreate with them." Read the complete article on the Reporter Herald Website
