Ways to Help

Every day, animals in need arrive at HSBV. Some are lost – hoping to reunite with their loving family after they accidentally got into some mischief. Some are hurt – looking for a helping hand and a safe place to lay their head. Some are scared – seeking compassionate support to help them thrive.

In addition to providing care to the animals at HSBV and leveraging our foster volunteer resources for these animals, we also have readied our community Safety Net for pet guardians in need. Our team has pet supplies and food prepared for community members experiencing financial hardship during this difficult time. The shelter is ready to provide temporary boarding to pets displaced due to the impacts of COVID-19, giving them love and care while their guardian get back on their feet. Our veterinary clinic continues to give injured and sick animals the urgent care they need.

With social distancing recommendations on-going, critical service revenue is reduced, and fundraising events have been cancelled. These funding sources fuel our work and our mission. We need YOU to keep going. The animals are counting on us.

Looking to help? Here are a few ways you can help the animals and our community…

Donate to our Emergency Safety Net! In order to respond quickly to the animals who arriving at HSBV, we need financial resources to provide them effective care. Your donation keeps the lights on, purchases lifesaving medications, helps administer critical vaccinations, and ensures our team can respond to our community with technology and onsite support.

Schedule your Colorado Gives Day gift!  All donations will be doubled – up to $100,000 – to provide critical care resources to the animals at HSBV right now, and strengthen our safety net for pet guardians in our community who are facing crises.

Donate gently used goods to our Animal Shelter or Thrift Shop! We gladly accept pet items to provide comfort, care, and enrichment for the animals at HSBV. Our Thrift Shop accepts household items to resale and raise funding for our programs and services. Learn more about our Thrift Shop hours and donation guidelines here.
