“I have long felt there are few things better than the unconditional love of animals. There is so much we can learn from their resilience so anything that I can do to support their wellbeing is top of mind for me. Being on the Board of Directors is one small way I can try and honor them as well as support the wonderful staff of LHS in delivering on their needs and goals.”



Teresa MacPhail

Joined Board 2020. current term ends 12/2022
I became a client of the Longmont Humane Society in 1997 when I adopted the first of what would eventually be four cats. In 2012, I was happy to join other local businesses in working to raise money to support the work of this important organization. Eventually I felt that while adopting and donating were wonderful ways to support Longmont Humane Society, I wanted to do more to help secure its future in our community. I am pleased to now be contributing my time and experience as a member of the Board of Directors.

The Longmont Humane Society won my heart by how they stepped up during the flood in 2013. They have shown time and time again what a true asset they are to the community. With my 15 years raising puppies to be guide and assist dogs, I know what a positive influence animals can be in your life and am thrilled to think I can assist LHS meet their goals. I feel privileged and honored to sit on this board.

“Throughout the years, I’ve watched the Longmont Humane Society overcome enormous challenges and recover from heartbreaking tragedies. They have continued to grow and offer new and improved programs and services, while keeping the best interest of the animals, and their fiscal responsibility as a nonprofit, at the forefront of their efforts. Their commitment to both the animals and the residents of this community is outstanding.  As a Longmont native, and the mama to many fur babies, I’m proud to be a small part of this organization and I’m happy to lend my service to their continued success.”
