Better animal welfare in the way which animals are treated by setting higher standards of practice and leadership which focus on compassionate and sustainable solutions
Be of direct and consistent support to the pets and pet owners of San Miguel county and the southwest Colorado region
Outside of the local county, we have meaningfully chosen to rescue pets solely and exclusively from the Ute Reservation in southwest Colorado. The Ute Native Americans are the soul and spirit of Telluride and we are honored and privileged to help this community.
Respect for all life
The foundation blocks of the Telluride Humane Society’s Mission & Values comes from our community of volunteers and leaders partnered with local organizations, servicesand government.
Every life matters.
