Help humane societies in fire-ravaged parts of ColoradoAs of June 28, active wildfires in Colorado have consumed more than 148,000 acres, displacing tens of thousands of people and their pets. Because of the urgent need to house these displaced pets, local humane societies like the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Larimer Humane Society and the Humane Society of Boulder Valley have stepped in to help.
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley and the Dumb Friends League have already sent teams to Colorado Springs to help care for animals at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region that have been displaced by the Waldo Canyon Wildfire evacuations. The PetAid Disaster Relief Fund provides some reimbursement and coordination to local shelters involved in relief efforts.
In addition, the Dumb Friends League has taken in more than 55 adoptable pets from shelters along the Front Range, helping create space for the temporary housing of displaced pets. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley has taken in more than 50 adoptable pets.
