Outside Dog Kennel New Construction
Construction has begun on several projects at the animal shelter including a large covered outside kennel area, a large fenced play yard for the adoptable dogs/puppies, a community dog park (Kennels and Dog Park layout), a Memorial Garden (Memorial Garden layout), fencing to separate isolation dogs/puppies from adoptable dogs/puppies area, and asphalt paving to be applied behind and next to the building. These projects were made possible as a result of a generous direct donation from John and Joyce Webb and a grant from Archuleta County Parks, Recreation, Openspace & Trails, and should be completed before the end of November 2010. Check out photos of the new construction.

2010 Poster The Humane Society's 16th Auction for the Animals, held Friday, August 27th, was a fun night out on the town for all who attended. With over 300 people in attendance, the successful bidding on the wonderful Live, Silent, and Brown Bag Auction items, and $7,200 in financial sponsorships, the Humane Society raised nearly $36,000 after expenses. These funds will be used to offset operating costs of the animal shelter which houses the lost, homeless, abandoned, and owner surrendered dogs and cats of Pagosa Springs and Archuleta Country and to ensure the ongoing efforts to keep these animals off the streets and in a safe place.

We sincerely hope that all who attended had a wonderful time and went home with some great auction items! Please make a note to mark your 2011 calendars for next year's event on Friday, August 26, 2011.

St. Patrick's Day Parade
The Humane Society volunteers and adoptable puppies and dogs participated in the Pagosa Springs Chamber Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17, 2010. Jan Karn, HSPS board member, was chairperson of this event and came up with the “Pot of Gold” theme for our float. Thank you to Jan and her helpers for painting and decorating the float and thank you to Hart Construction for loaning us their trailer, pickup, and driver!!
