120 years of kindness, compassion, helping animals and saving lives

In 2022, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (HSBV) is celebrating 120 years of service in the Boulder and Broomfield communities and beyond!

Founded in 1902, our original charter included protecting children and women, and it eventually evolved to protect working livestock and companion animals. Today, HSBV’s mission to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people is supported by critical services beyond animal adoptions.

HSBV is proud to be the longest-serving, continuously operating humane society in the state of Colorado!

HSBV is the only animal welfare organization in our service area offering an array of Safety Net options to provide access to pet food and supplies and temporary boarding during times of hardship or crisis – like natural disasters – to keep pets with their families, routine and emergency veterinary care, training and behavior services, and a critical transfer program to help overburdened shelters.

Our open-admission, socially conscious shelter provides care to any animal who comes to our facility, and we’re actively working to build the next century for pets and people! As our mission has expanded, we are making changes to address the increased demand for animal health, behavior and Safety Net services.

We look forward to the next 120 years, and serving the pets and people who need us for generations to come!
