2019 marked Larimer Humane Society’s 50th anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than a Golden Gala? The annual event, presented by Poudre Pet & Feed Supply hosted 350 attendees who helped to raise more than $134,000 for homeless animals in northern Colorado. The event helps to support more than 6,000 animals who come through Larimer Humane Society’s doors each year in need of care, compassion, and safety.

In addition to a silent and live auction, the event featured a seated dinner and presentation from supporters who have impacted Larimer Humane Society throughout its 50-year history. Two organizational founders – June Baker and John Walker – were in attendance. Guests mixed and mingled with several of Larimer Humane Society’s adoptable pets, and learned the stories of two very special animals served this year – Peaches, a guinea pig who required amputation of a badly broken leg; and Amelia, a puppy who was found after surviving nearly eight months alone, deep in Poudre Canyon.
