Pet Emergency Assistance Fund


We are deeply grateful for any and all support to help our local pet community at this time. The Telluride Humane Society is compromised 100% of volunteers with no paid employees nor staff. 100% of all donations go directly to the pets of San Miguel county and the neighboring communities (such as Rico).

If you would like to make a donation to help the local pets of San Miguel county and the neighboring communities, please scroll down to donation buttons. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, as we know so many are in need and those that can help, have so many charities and causes to consider.

As local pet owners within San Miguel County and neighboring communities are going through challenging financial times, the Telluride Humane Society knows that many pet owners are struggling to care for themselves and their families, in addition to caring for their loved pets. In response to this unprecedented crisis, the Telluride Humane Society has established the Pet Emergency Assistance Fund to aid in the necessary care that is needed for these pets during this time.

We are bringing assistance through the generous contributions of private donations, local grants and overwhelming support from the following:

Hills Pet Nutrition


Blue Buffalo

Boehringer-Ingelheim – donating Frontline flea and tick preventive and trays of vaccines

Additionally, we will provide medical assistance for the cases that meet certain criteria.

Please submit a request for an application below and we will send you the application. Once we receive your completed application and you are approved, we will contact you and confirm that you are able to receive a supply of pet food at no cost and/or medical assistance as determined. At that time we will provide the days, hours and locations of where the food can be picked up. If deliveries are needed, we will make arrangements to deliver the necessary supplies.
