  • 1. Great Shelter!

    by: bananasandmonks

    This shelter is amazing! It's super clean and the staff is amazing! They care so much about the animals. I really hope more people start adopting from them more. It's really a good place to get any animal to love for a long time.

  • 2. Amazing Care!

    by: LacyLana

    This is an amazing shelter! It's so clean and has the best staff. They do everything they can for the animals! The shelter has alot of animals that need to be adopted, though. I think they deserve to win the Shelter Makeover 2.

    This is the most amazing shelter with the best people.

    The cells are kept extremly clean. The animals are all well fed. La Plata County Humane Society deserves this makeover. If they don't get the makeover they will have to put down lots of the animals which would be soooooo sad:(

  • 9. Dogs and Cats Galore!

    by: AnimalHelperLover13

    I love this shelter! It's very clean and the animals are treated very well. But I heard that it's at it's maximum occupancy right now so it can't take in any more animals. I think that this humane society really needs the makeover for the animal's sake.

    Pros

    The animals are very loved.

    Cons

    You can't volenteer without an adult until you're 17.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything not positive about this shelter

  • 12. An Animal Shelter with a lota love

    by: tshutterbug

    Where do I start? From the first moment I walked into the La Plata county humane society I could tell this place was well loved. Photos of re-homed pets with happy smiles adorn the walls, volunteers are seen walking and caring for pets, friendly and knowledgeable staff are eager to help. I am really proud Colorado has a place such as this to help our beloved pets find a caring home that they well deserve.

    Pros

    Motivated staff, devoted volunteers, well cared for animals

    Cons

    We want more for our animals therefore a makeover would mean the world to the La Plata county citizens

  • 13. The first place I go to and recommend for adopting and supporting animals in La Plata County

    by: natwinks

    I love this shelter! People are friendly and knowledgeable. I've adopted 3 animals & they're always efficient and thorough with me.

    Pros

    Efficient, knowledgeable, friendly

    Cons

    Hours of operation- they're always closed when I get off work... maybe I need a new job!

  • 14. Great Shelter

    This a great shelter that really cares about their animals. They also have a wonderful thrift store where everything you buys benefits the animals. They are always putting on events like a Mutt Strutt, an Adoptathon, etc.\n\nit's also a great place to volunteer!

    Pros

    They have great staff

    Cons

    Outside the city
