Bolt Update

Bolt: A Community United


Great news! Bolt’s story has a happy ending! Thanks to the concern and kindness of some great organizations, as of December 5, 2014, Bolt will no longer have to be on a chain when he is outside. A generous donor provided fencing for a 10 x 20 dog run, a new doghouse, bed, a thick mat and toys. Working with Larimer Humane Society Animal Protection and Control and the dog’s owner, a local contractor donated his time to construct the new “digs” for Bolt. Meanwhile, Bolt himself was away getting neutered – a gift of Fort Collins Cat Rescue and Spay Neuter Clinic. Once Bolt recuperates, more photos will be added. Thanks to all of you for your concern for this dog. Your commitment to the welfare of animals in our community is truly amazing!
