Animals Being Needlessly Euthanized in Colorado

More than 17,000 animals are killed in an average year in Colorado, which works out to a little more than 46 animals every single day. This level of animal euthanasia suggests that the mechanisms in place in our state to find new homes for orphaned pets are not working the way they should.

The Michael Lanteri Agency is launching an extended campaign to help protect orphaned or abused pets, and to help find new adoptive homes for animals now being sheltered.

Ambassadors for Responsible Animal Guardianship

As Larimer County Regional Ambassadors in the national #AgentsofChange network, the Michael Lanteri Agency is dedicated to protecting the lives and well-being of all the animals in our community. During this campaign we will concentrate on reducing kill counts in Larimer County shelters by supporting efforts to find new homes and families for pets, as well as by sponsoring efforts to encourage local community members to be responsible animal guardians by making sure their pets are spayed or neutered.

To reach everyone in the community, we need your help.

Be a Part of the Effort

The best way to be a part of this effort is to invite your loves ones and close friends to swing by the Michael Lanteri Agency for a free insurance consultation. While they’re here, we will provide them with details on this campaign. And after they leave, we will make a contribution IN YOUR NAME to a local no-kill shelter or rescue program.

Help Us Help Them!

Let’s bring an end to needless euthanasia and help safeguard pets in Larimer County. The only thing these animals want is a new home, and by working together we can make sure they get it. Please join us!
