La Plata County Humane Society has been helping animals since 1971. Support from our community enables us to continue our mission to enhance and protect the lives of companion animals. With a staff of 50 members and 400 volunteers, we are able to provide life-saving services to nearly 3,000 animals per year. We are committed to animal safety, shelter, community education and preventing pet overpopulation.
