WE HAVE ROOM! Over the past few days I have noticed a large number of puppies being sold or given away on Facebook. We totally understand that accidents happens. Here's the problem. When you re-home an unaltered animal it does not help with pet overpopulation. One accident can quickly turn into 8 accidents. And anyone who has had to clean up after 8-10 puppies knows how frustrating of an accident it can be. Please consider bringing your liters to our shelter. We have a highly trained staff and all of the pups will receive ALL of their vaccines and spay or neutered. The best part is we do not charge to surrender a dog or liter of pups and we will help you get the mother spay. The pups will NOT be stuck in their kennels. We give them lots of time outside and of course lots of love!

Today we got a call about kittens falling out of the sky. Turns out an extremely feral mom nested on top of a patio cover, in a sheltered nook with the roof. As her kittens began to explore, they were losing their footing and falling. We weren't able to reach the mom or her last two kittens, as the patio cover is not safe to climb on and would be destroyed, but we were able to take in the three who fell. Having an initial look, their chances of mending and making nice pets is high. They're not pretty now, but a few weeks of good food, meds, and a cosy home will fix them right up! They fought to get to the kitten food we offered, a good sign that they're not in a dire health situation. The people who saved them promised to bring the last two as soon as they can. So far this year, Cats Alive has taken in 110 cats, the majority of them kittens like these born to feral mothers. Please fix a feral mom in your area this summer to prevent this kind of suffering.

We are having electrical work done at the shelter today. We will be without power for the afternoon which means no phones or internet. You may still reclaim a lost dog but all other business will need to wait until tomorrow.

Do you have a pool that needs a dog? We have a dog that needs a pool! Sunny Bunny is at her best in the yard with her pool and ball to fetch! An active lady who needs an active owner. Her loyalty is second to none. She has become a staff favorite at the shelter and we are determined to find her the right home. We recommend no cats but she had some young children visit her and she did great with them. Older than 5 would probably be best. If you have another dog you will need to bring it with you to meet Sunny. Our sweet Sunny has had little interest since she came to the shelter and is our longest resident at the moment going on two months. We have decided to reduce her adoption fee to $50.00. Sunny still needs to be spay but we will take care of that for you!

Sunny is still available and waiting for her new forever home. Please feel free to share her post with reputable adoption pages!

Let Sunny bring some Sunshine to your life! An active gal who enjoys fun in the sun, a swimming pool and long hikes. Sunny is a pit mix and rough player with other dogs. She will need to meet your current dog to see if they can handle her fun, rambunctious personality or be the only dog in her house. Her buddy has to enjoy a good chest bump and serious romping in the dirt to appreciate Sunny. Staff has been working on her leash skills and she is doing excellent. Sunny does not like being kenneled and would do best in a secure fenced yard and as part of the family, which we want for all of our dogs.. Because of her energy we recommend a home without cats and no kids under 12. If you have younger children and would still like to meet Sunny bring them to shelter and we can see how she does. It is her "bull in a China shop" personality that is most concerning. A child with good dog skills may be just fine. "BOOK NOW" to meet this sweet gal whose loyalty is second to none! Her adoption fee is $150.00 and includes all shots and her spay!

This lovely found a home today ❤️

If you are looking for an older gal this may be the Cougar/Chi for you. Dixie is at least 10 years old and maybe a little older. She is partially blind, her hearing is not what it used to be either and she could use a refresher course on house training. She is very calm and has an "older by wiser" air about her. She is missing a lap to call her own and a place to live out her golden years. You may meet her by appointment. She is currently in foster and does require an appointment. Her adoption fee is $100.00 and includes her spay and shots. Please call the shelter at 719-589-3385 to schedule your meeting with Dixie!

As you can see, even the toughest Kongs cannot hold up to our playful pups! Kongs are an important part of enrichment here at the shelter- it gives them something tasty while also providing a challenge. You may not be able to volunteer your time during this predicament, however you are still able to lend a hand:

Adoption Spotlight
Sunny!
Do you want a dog with raw power? Then Sunny is your girl! She enjoys powerful bursts of exercise like full-speed sprints and building muscles with a weighted vest. Sunny is looking for an experienced owner who can wrangle in her breed’s mighty energy. Additionally, Sunny has minor behavior issues for she does not always make the best decisions for herself, such as chasing after small animals and rushing towards vehicles bigger than her. In the right hands, Sunny will make a great dog. If you are interested in taking Sunny home her Adoption Cost is $150, and includes annual vaccinations plus her spay. Contact us online, by phone, or book a meet and greet now by pressing the button at the top of our page.

I bet a lot of you have been wondering why we haven't asked yet. The number of dogs in the shelter has not been any worse than normal. Actually better. A few small transfers here and there and it's stayed very manageable. Even up until a few days ago the strays had been down. The rules have changed once again and we need to prepare. Anyone interested in fostering a shelter dog please submit the form below and someone will contact you within a day. This is a chance to help the helpless during these crazy times we are living in. We know there has been a huge response to requests from shelters for fosters all over the country and we expect our wonderful community to respond the same.

Lexi
Lexi is a 2 year old Husky/Shepherd mix. As you can see from the picture, she is ready for adventure! Before she came to us, Lexi was tethered in a yard out where there is not much going on. She does not know how awesome the world can be and needs someone to show her- it’s all very scary to Lexi! Will you be the one to feed Lexi’s curious side? Book a meet and greet this week! Contact Valley Humane League by phone or online. Lexi’s Adoption Cost is $150 and includes her annual vaccines, as well as rabies, plus her spay surgery.

Donations needed!
Help! Our dogs are in need of TOYS! They have chomped, chewed, and chawed through our reserves! A variety of plushies, tugs, chewables, and squeakers are needed. We have enough tennis balls, however if you come across some interesting balls, our pups would love them. Please drop donations off at the door during business hours. Our dogs would give you all loads of kisses in thanks but they are practicing social-distancing at this time, too!

I would like to know when the next food pantry is.. I adopted Bella from valley humane league.. and she was spaded..
⭐Missing⭐ *PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU SEE HIM MY CHILDREN CRIED GOING TO BED BECAUSE HE WASN'T HOME* We are visiting my parents from Texas and it seems like every time we fix something with their fence he finds a new way to get out. if you could let me know if you've seen him I'd appreciate it I'm driving around looking for him. His name is Apollo and he's very friendly
I have a lost dog on my front porch. He looks older, white. Who can I contact to come for him? I don't recognize him from the area, and he has no tag.
Thank you for all you do for the furbabies.
Thank You for all you do.
THANK YOU for coming to Creede over Labor Day weekend. We adopted one of the Great Pyrenees pups. He has adjusted to our clan beautifully and we love him dearly. He is such a healthy and happy “little” guy (who loves his naps). 😏 I admire and appreciate what you do so much!
They were terrific. The girl dog I adopted on Friday was in good health, happy, calm. The facilities were very clean. I had a really good experience.
got home to find a pug, brown/black face, dark spot on top of head in my yard. I am sure someone is looking for him. leave comment on this post if he belong to you. I will call Valley Human League and also check with them.
I am very proud to member of the Valley Humane League. They treat every dog as if it were their own dog. Staff and the director are always looking out for the best interest of the animas in their care😍🥰🐩🐕.
Is it true that you all don't spay/neuter the pets you adopt out?
We have 6 puppies 1 male and 5 females pit,boxer, heeler mix 8 weeks old
