Colorado Humane Society

The Colorado Humane Society (CHS), incorporated on August 6th, 1881, is the state’s only open admission shelter where no clock is ticking. As an open-door shelter, no animal is turned away. With no clock ticking, CHS does not euthanize for money or space considerations. The Society is also what is called a “welfarest” organization. Simply put, we are in the business of saving animals one at a time. We actually lay hands on the animals we help. Our educational programs are pro-active and use positive messages to teach humane and responsible behavior. We actively support the effort to control pet populations; every animal we save is spayed or neutered.
