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


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.




Issue 200 passed on November 4th by a vote of 52.01%  to 47.99%!  Because of your campaign support, voters sided with the animals and voted to fund a new facility where Larimer Humane Society can continue to do the important work of saving animal lives.  Now we can count on saving so many more! 

There are no words to say that can describe our elation at the recent passage of Ballot Issue 200!  Thanks to your “Yes on 200” vote, the animals and community we serve at Larimer Humane Society will soon be enjoying a long overdue brand new facility.

Groundbreaking will begin sometime in 2015 and you will all be invited!  Our new 39,000-square-foot shelter will be located on County Road 30 in between Fort Collins and Loveland.  It will allow us to provide a larger and safer environment for homeless animals with modern ventilation to help control the spread of disease.   As well, it will be more aesthetically pleasing for those seeking to adopt a new pet and provide more comfort to those wishing to relinquish a pet. 

 Thank you again for your vote and help in getting the animals a new facility!
