A knowledgeable guide will speak to your group about our facility and programs, the services we provide to the community, and the importance of responsible pet care. Some of the content will be determined by the age of the group. We will go "behind the scenes" and around the adoption floor to see the animals that are currently in our care. (We cannot guarantee hands-on interaction with the animals during the tour).
We primarily schedule tours for Tuesdays after 9 a.m. and Thursdays after 2 p.m., though if your request is for another day/time let us know and we will try to accommodate you. Tours run approximately 35-45 minutes, and must be completed by close of business (each day at 6 p.m.). Group size is limited to a minimum of 5 and maximum of 20 people. Children must be at least 6 years old to participate in a tour.
Click here for the tour request form: Group Tour Request Form . Please print and fill out the form, and return it at least 3 weeks in advance of your preferred date. Your form may be sent via email to Tegan Waters, dropped off at the shelter during adoption hours, or faxed to 303-772-2219, attn.: Tegan Waters.
Thank you for thinking of our shelter animals! If you would like to give a monetary donation in any amount, we are happy to accept it during open adoption hours. If you would like to purchase items for our shelter animals, we have an active wish list on Amazon with the items that would help our animals the most: https://www.longmonthumane.org/?q=wish-list . These items may also be dropped off during open adoption hours.
Guidelines for Donated Crafts/Homemade Treats
Please do not bring homemade edible treats for our animals. For store-bought edible donations, please visit our Amazon wish list: https://www.longmonthumane.org/?q=wish-list . If your group would like to create a craft for our shelter animals, here are some that work well for us: Tug-A-Jug https://vimeo.com/46773207 and Interactive PVC Toys https://vimeo.com/46773204. You may also make 24" x 24" cat kennel blankets, 20" round cat bed blankets, 40" x 24" dog blankets, rope toys, or other enrichment items to donate, and our shelter staff will inspect them to ensure they are safe.
