During the month of July, the OneBeacon office located in Denver, CO held a drive to support the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. We were overwhelmed by the response to this drive, as items began pouring in on the very first day. Nearly 100 hundred items were collected including food for cats and dogs, toys, cleaning supplies, treats and two giant bags full of towels and blankets (not pictured).
At the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley we are committed to strengthening the bond between pets and people and being the community’s animal welfare resource. Our philosophy is that a humane society should serve the community by taking in lost, stray and abandoned animals and providing those animals with the best care during their stay at our shelter. We provide enrichment programs for the animals in our care, including a social play group environment for both dogs and cats. These enrichment programs are based on the latest research in animal behavior and neuroscience in animals. A great team of volunteers makes sure our dogs get walked at least two and often three times a day. Our animals don’t have time limits for placement and we often spend many months rehabilitating an animal so they learn to trust humans and overcome their fears and anxiety. Our goal is to give these animals that second chance for a new beginning with a new family.
