"DOGS ARE NOT OUR WHOLE LIVES BUT THEY SOMEHOW MAKE OUR LIVES WHOLE."
Growing up in Boulder my family adopted dogs from the Humane Society in Boulder so when I finally decided it was time to get a dog as an adult I naturally adopted from HSBV. It was love at first site, or sit, when I first met Romeo. Many folks say that dogs pick you like Romeo did when he sat on my foot and captured my heart at our first encounter, and I completely agree. A week after adopting Romeo I met my husband, Greg, who had the sweetest Rottweiler named Lexie, and we soon became one big happy "blended" family. We both loved canines so much that we decided if we weren't able to have kids, we adopt lots of dogs. Lucky for us, a human child…
We are fortunate enough to be able to provide our children with buckets of LEGOs and more American Dolls than I'm willing to admit. When it came time for my twin's 8th birthday I gave them a choice. They could have 8 friends each at their Slackline party in our backyard and accept gifts or they could invite as many as they wanted (within reason!) and accept donations for the charity of their choice.
One of my prouder mommy moments...they chose their friends and Boulder Human Society over birthday presents. This is only made more impressive by the fact they agreed! We've adopted several of our pets from Boulder Humane Society and randomly visit the cats and dogs there just because we can. It was a natural choice for them.
Let's be honest, most…

Dear Sophie & Phoebe,
When we adopted you several years ago, we may have rescued you from a lonely existence or a terrifying fate, but you also rescued us. Inviting you into our family was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. You have improved the quality of our lives in so many surprising and special ways. The love that you bring to our family is brilliant and your companionship over the years has been a tremendous source of joy. We treat you “like family” because you are family.
Though this list is surely endless, here are just ten of the gifts you continue to share with us:
- Love. With all of our human strengths and challenges, you still manage to love us unconditionally.
BoulderHomeSource supports local animal shelters like Boulder Humane Society. We would love to share your story of rescue. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your furry rescue story.

"As a long time, committed volunteer if Boulder Valley Humane Society, I help take care of all of the wonderful dogs who are up for adoption every week.
One day I walked a dog who was a mess: he was an 8 year old obese Chocolate Lab who was recovering from kennel cough, ear infections and a tick infestation. Even with all these problems, he was incredibly sweet and had a
What a peculiar name your original owners gave you. You have all the majesty your 100-pound Siberian Husky self commands, yet you are a love sponge whose bucket is never full, a living stuffed animal.
On the day we met, a dusty sky hung over the Rocky Mountains reminding my husband and I of the overwhelming grief we felt for our first Siberian who’d passed only a week earlier. As we entered the rescue yard, 20 Huskies bounded toward us while you quietly sidled up, sat down next to my feet and leaned into my legs as if to say,“I pick you.”
We put you and your equally sized sister, who you would not leave without, into the back of our little Subaru and made the drive back to our condo in Boulder. (YES, condo!) You looked like a…

You will find food from 20 local restaurants and caterers with plenty of local beer and wine selections to quench your thirst. As you finish off that beer, make your rounds at the silent auction. Browse through over 600 items graciously donated by area companies to support our four-legged friends…
Ellie is Boxer Rhodesian Ridgeback mixed breed that has an adorable face and a sweet personality. 65 pounds with a playful spirit, Ellie tends to be a bit shy at first, but once she warms up to you she is your best friend forever. If you want a dog that will run with you on the trails and loves being active outdoors, Ellie is the girl for you, as long as you have no other animals.
Omaha! He is a 65 pound 2 year old Dalmatian Australian Shepherd mix that is full of energy. A loving and affectionate guy, Omaha is protective of his people and would fit best in a home with older children and does not like to share his affection with other pets. This cute boy would be the perfect companion for an active family that is looking for an energetic pup!…
Weeks have now passed since the Colorado Flood of 2013 and even though many people have begun to put the pieces back together, there is still a huge need for help in the area. One area which is near and dear to most Coloradans hearts are our four legged pals and pets. Since the first reports of evacuations, the Longmont Humane Society, which is one of the Front Range's largest facilities, has taken in over 230 animals which were stranded or otherwise displaced by the rushing waters. With so many additional animals in the facility, the Longmont Humane Society is now looking to the public to help fill the need of the community.
The majority of the animals that are being sheltered at the Longmont Humane Society because of the floods are in a unique…
