It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people.
Founded in 1902, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (HSBV) provides a safety net to animals in need in our community and beyond. Each year, HSBV provides shelter and care to nearly 7,000 animals, helping them find their new beginnings in the Boulder community or working to protect happy and healthy relationships.
Our open-admission shelter provides care to any animal who comes to our facility. Open seven days a week, HSBV readily accepts community animals as guardian surrenders, stray pets, and transferred animals. The Transfer program enables us to offer a greater variety of animals to our adoption clients. The placement rates of our Adoption program ensure our doors are open to thousands of transfer animals seeking placement from overcrowded and under-served shelters in our state and region.
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on donations from our generous supporters. HSBV animal care efforts are also supported by the funds generated through our Community Resource Center/Thrift Shop and our Sonnyside Retail Store. We are not operated or funded by any national humane groups or governmental agencies and rely on contributions to bring our services to the community.
