Owner Surrenders:

The La Plata County Humane Society is an Open-Admission Shelter, which means that we will accept any domesticated animal to our facility. If you are not a resident in La Plata County, then we ask that you bring your animal to your local Shelter. Please call LPCHS before surrendering your pet. (970)259-2847

We are a nonprofit and we do our best to cover expenses, but it would be highly appreciated for you to donate to help cover the costs to care for your pet.

Please provide medical records at the time of surrender. If you do not have medical records then provide contact information from your Veternarian.

The La Plata County Humane Society is an open-admission facility and we try our best to get all of the animals the home that they deserve.


After 72 hours of finding and caring for a stray animal it will be considered your pet in the State of Colorado. Please turn in a stray to your local shelter as soon as possible.

If you find a stray outside of La Plata County it's best chance of being reunited with it's owner is for you to locate the nearest regional shelter.
