The Humane Society of Fremont County has been dedicated to ending animal homelessness and providing care and comfort for companion animals in need. Our adoption programs, affordable veterinary services, community outreach efforts and volunteer opportunities are essential to the health and well-being of every animal across Fremont and Custer County, Colorado.

Our mission is to provide humane care for stray and surrendered animals by offering refuge, providing medical care, and facilitating an adoptive home. Only 19% of our budget is municipally funded, so the other 81% comes from donations, grants, bequests and fundraising events to further our mission of caring for the neglected and abandoned pets of Fremont and Custer County, Colorado.

Open-Admission Shelter

As a proud open-admission shelter, the pets of Humane Society of Fremont County remain in our care until they find their forever home. The Humane Society of Fremont County understands that people in Fremont & Custer County, Colorado may struggle financially from time to time and so we offer:

Our slogan, "Where Every Life Matters" could not more accurate. Every last life truly matters to us all.

Found a pup near the Abbey and when I took her to the Humane Society of Fremont County to check for a chip they instantly remembered someone who called in about a dog with the same description. The woman immediately contacted the family so the dog could be returned. The staff were very professional and friendly during the whole process.

Awesome shelter, staff, & cost. Felt so welcome and they were so helpful with the adoption of my little kitten, "Jubilee." Thanks for your great care while working with your shelter!

The staff at the Humane Society of Fremont County were very nice and helpful, the animal cages were clean, and there are so many animals looking for a new home. Please adopt, don't shop!
