I have volunteered at Humane Societies around the country and I believe Longmont to be the best I’ve experienced. As a Board of Directors member, I am delighted to be able to contribute my professional skills toward continuing to fulfill our mission to care, serve, educate and improve the lives of companion animals.”

“As a lifelong resident of the Longmont community, I have had the honor to see the Longmont Humane Society grow and evolve. I have also been directly blessed by their services in welcoming new furry family members into our home and witnessing the support that LHS provides to the community. I am privileged to get to serve on the Board of Directors and give my time and energies to a community and cause I love so well.

“I was impressed from my very first Homeward Bound “behind the scenes” visit at the Well Pet clinic seven years ago and I continue to be impressed with the dedicated staff and their never-ending work for our Longmont fur babies!  I’m excited to be a part of the LHS Board so I can continue my community outreach in a more meaningful way, so that all of us can continue to support the loving animals that are very important to all of our lives.”

“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.”

“I first became involved with Longmont Humane as a volunteer in 2012. Being highly aware of the positive impact the Longmont Humane makes in our community, and in the lives of people and animals is so great, it is one of a few that I dedicated time and money to support. As clients, we have relied upon the Well Pet Clinic for checkups and medications like heartworm pills. I am excited to bring my efforts to the board of directors to further help Longmont Humane continue to provide crucial services now and into the future.”

“I first joined LHS as a volunteer nearly 10 years ago since it allowed me and my young daughters to work with the animals directly. After seeing the wonderful work of the great staff at LHS, I decided to get involved in a more significant way by joining the board.”

Animals are our silent partners in living a healthy fulfilled life; providing us so much more than unconditional love but are our own furry healers. I am honored to be a part of this organization that serves the well-being of our animal community”

“When I think of saving animals, I think of protecting one of the few inherently innocent beings this world holds. Being on the Board of the Longmont Humane Society allows me to join a team that supports those who break the mold when it comes to rescuing animals. Every wonderful animal that is saved brings life and love to families just like mine.  We adopted my now 14-year-old blind dog from LHS and without those here who chose to believe in him, my family wouldn’t be complete. I can’t wait to be a part of the change!”

“I’ve been a volunteer at LHS for nearly a decade in a variety of capacities. I’ve seen firsthand how invaluable this organization is to our community and the over 4,000 animals that are cared for every year.  It’s a real privilege to serve on the Longmont Humane Society Board of Directors”

“I believe that giving a voice to the voiceless is one of the most noble causes we can engage in. I am fortunate enough to lend my experience from the non-profit world, and the private sector, to work at building a strong community surrounding the Longmont Humane Society. We will do the best we can to provide the quality of life and dignity that every animal in our community deserves.”

“I’m a board member at Longmont Humane Society because I’m focused on creating positive change for the 4,000 animals that LHS serves annually! I started my journey at LHS volunteering and wanted to get deeper into the mission, offering my experience to forward the mission at this wonderful place. I had a cat growing up who made a big impression on me and understand the importance pets have on our daily lives, giving that gift to as many people as possible is a goal of mine.
