About La Plata County Humane Society

La Plata County Humane Society was established as a 501(c) 3 animal shelter in 1971. The humane society was created to provide shelter for homeless animals, rescue animals in distress, assist in the investigation and prosecution of reported cruelty and abuse, find homes for unwanted animals, and encourage kindness and responsibility toward all living things through humane education.

The Thrift Store was established in 1990 to raise monies for the homeless animals. They sell gently-used goods donated by our community. We accept donations 7 days a week through our on-site drive through donation center. The Thrift Store helps to support other local non-profits in the community by donating clothing, toiletries and vouchers to the Volunteers of America (VOA), La Plata Family Coalition, the Women’s Resource Center and many other non-profits.

The Shelter & Thrift Store are directed by nine elected board members. In 2000, a veterinarian was added to our staff to insure that all animals have a health and wellness check, are spayed or neutered, provided initial vaccines, implanted with a identification microchip and have the best quality care before leaving our facility. We are committed to helping animals become their best selves before they are adopted into forever homes.

Help Us, Help Them, One Paw at a Time.
