Puttin’ On The Leash “Pup, Pup and Away” postponed to 2023

Our staff and volunteers have been working hard to bring Puttin’ On The Leash: “Pup, Pup & Away!” live and in person this fall. Like so many in our community, HSBV faces staffing challenges that have caused us to use our resources wisely.

Because this gala and auction mean so much to so many – especially after two years of being apart! – we have decided to postpone the event until next year so that our passengers (you) and crew (our staff and volunteers) can have the smoothest in-flight experience possible. This will allow us to focus our resources on our most important work — to help the increasing number of animals currently in our adoption center and to support the well-being of our team.

You’ll be the first to know when our new Puttin’ On The Leash date is confirmed as we prepare for takeoff!

Puttin’ On The Leash raises critical funds for the animals, and they still need your help. Their needs happen in real time even though the event is postponed. Please consider giving now, and we hope you’ll open your generous hearts as we share upcoming ways to support HSBV’s mission and the animals counting on us.

Doggie Dash

Our hearts couldn’t be more full from the outpouring of support our Dashers and sponsors show each year. With Puttin’ On The Leash scheduled for fall 2022, other unforeseen circumstances regarding our normal Dash route, and after much consideration, HSBV will not be hosting a Doggie Dash event in 2022. Our team is hard at work planning other ways for our community to come together for the people and animals of Boulder and Broomfield counties, and beyond! Please check back for more information on ways you can support HSBV’s mission. To our dedicated Dashers: THANK YOU for saving lives – you make a difference, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you in new ways this year!
