Thank you for your story about Boulder Humane Society being beyond capacity with unwanted pets. Sadly, the overwhelming amount of animals needing rescue is not unique to Boulder Humane. People are not the only ones suffering from the economic downturn: the bad economy has created a horrific situation for thousands of animals who were once beloved family pets. I volunteer with numerous dog rescues, including Big Dogs Huge Paws, and every rescue group is full, with a wait list of dogs literally dying to get in. I noticed your article said that Boulder Humane does not have another foster training until September. With the high volume of animals in dire need currently, that is unfortunate. Anyone wanting to open their homes and hearts to animals in need immediately should look on www.petfinder.com and find one of the many rescues in our area that are desperate for foster hom es. If you can provide a foster home, you can literally save a life. We have dogs on wait lists that just can’t be saved because they have no where to go. There is a rescue out there for every pet species, breed, size, temperament etc. that you might be interested in helping. So please consider helping an animal during this critical time, if you can.
