Where Your Money Goes

Every dollar counts.

We are 100% volunteer, 100% foster based and 100% donation based.

The Telluride Humane Society’s lifesaving work is only possible because of the support of animal-loving community members like you.

By making a donation, you directly help us:

  • Save homeless pets
  • Rescue animals at risk and/or in crisis situations
  • Prevent pet over-population through free to affordable spay/neuter services
  • Provide the local community with beneficial spay/neuter, medical, behavioral and education services
  • Raise awareness
  • Promote animal welfare in the Southwest region of our community

Where your dollars go.

Your donations go directly to helping homeless animals, animals at risk and/or in crisis situations, funding community-focused programs & services and building a No Kill community. The Telluride Humane Society is using several of the country’s most highly rated animal welfare organizations as a guide for the efficient use of donor funds and best practices in nonprofit management. You can be assured that your support is going directly to helping homeless pets and pets in need.

At this time, the Telluride Humane Society has no salaried or paid positions in its day to day operations and relies 100% on the volunteers of this animal-loving community.

We have established our alliance with Guidestar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information so that as we continue to build and grow, Guidestar recognizes our continued commitment to full public accountability for our work. By sharing mission-focused metrics, we give our supporters meaningful data to independently evaluate our performance and results.
