Terrible service. Girl who supposedly scheduled it time to pick up a dog we were adopting apparently didn't enter it into the system. Controlling woman who was working the next day then said we might have to wait 2 hours to get the dog. Punishing wait in the waiting room. Do not know when I will get out of here. We did all the rigamarole when we put the dog on hold and had the meet with our other dogs. Now more rigamarole.

No wonder people buy from breeders.

I first joined LHS as a volunteer nearly 10 years ago since it allowed me and my young daughters to work with the animals directly. After seeing the wonderful work of the great staff at LHS, I decided to get involved in a more significant way by joining the board. LHS is a wonderful organization and an iconic part of the Longmont community. I'm proud to be affiliated with the shelter.

The Well Pet Clinic is an impressive feature of this non profit that not only serves the animals in LHS's care, but also provides low cost services and medications to the community and their pets. I will never forget when I took a tour of the facility for the first time and was SO impressed with the surgery/hospital unit inside the "dome".

As a result of my first facility tour, I have now been a volunteer at LHS for the last 7 years. This non profit does wonderful things for the animals of our community including most recently taking in 96 displaced animals that were a part of the fire evacuations. The LHS staff works tirelessly to help ALL animals in need (including the occasional birds, rabbit, chinchilla etc.).

I will continue to support Longmont Humane Society because I believe in their mission and I believe in the people that work there. They serve mainly Longmont but also the surrounding areas of Boulder County.

Our family has adopted 4 cats from LHS, two were disabled. The organization goes above and beyond each adoption process to make sure the families and their new member are a great fit!!
Longmont is blessed to have this organization!!!

Longmont Humane Society does good work! I have adopted 2 dogs and a cat there over the years. The facility is rather new and has great living quarters for dogs and cats. You can tell the animals are well cared for. Unfortunately, the new facility cost much more to build. Also, they were expecting a $300,000 donation pledge to help with costs of the new building but the donor backed out. They are really desperate and need money badly or they will go into foreclosure very soon.

Longmont Humane Society helped so many Colorado flood victims. They took in displaced animals and people too. Everyone was so grateful that the Longmont Humane stepped up and worked hard to help these displaced animals.

I was a volunteer for 2 years, cleaning kennels, walking dogs, and socializing cats who needed extra help .
I spent 7 hours a week there. After realizing I could no longer afford to drive the 25 miles there I stopped volunteering and got a job there instead.
All volunteer and staff are truly there for the animals. During the recent floods when the shelter was in the evac zone they stayed there. They took in people's animals and even gave a few people a place to stay the night.
I am very proud to be part of this organization.
