This year, the humane society will add another Northern Colorado community to its service area.
In 2020, Windsor police will work with the Larimer Humane Society to address lost, abused or stray pets in the community.
The new partnership will work in a similar fashion to other communities the humane society serves.
To report stray or missing animals, Windsor residents can call the police department’s nonemergency line at 970-674-6400.
Police advise residents not to approach unknown animals, especially if they appear sick. Police will document the animal, check it for a microchip and make attempts to reunite the animal with its owner. If police are unable to find the animal’s owner, it will then be taken to the Larimer Humane Society. Animals at the humane society will be held for five days before becoming available for adoption, if possible.
What if I have lost a pet?
Windsor residents who have lost pets can call Windsor police at 970-674-6400 or visit the Larimer Humane Society at 3501 E. 71st St. in Loveland. The humane society keeps a list of missing animals brought to the shelter on its website at larimerhumane.org.
To reclaim a pet, residents will have to provide proof of ownership and pay impound and boarding fees at the humane society.
What communities does the Larimer Humane Society serve?
The humane society’s animal protection and control team contracts with the cities of Fort Collins and Loveland and unincorporated Larimer County.
In addition, the humane society also partners with local authorities in Berthoud, Timnath, Johnstown, Wellington and now Windsor.
In 2017, the humane society moved into a new 39,000-square-foot facility in Loveland. In fiscal year 2019, the humane society had an 84% success rate in returning lost dogs to their owners, according to a news release.
