Pet of the Week: Ellie

Meet Ellie! She is the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pets of the Week.

Ellie is an extremely sweet and exuberant dog. She gets super excited when she sees her humans and loves to cuddle. She used to sleep in bed with her previous owner’s 4 year old daughter and really loved her. She knows sit, shake, down, heel, stay AND leave it. Ellie loves car rides and would be the perfect family dog for a family that only wants one pet. If you’d like to learn more about Ellie fill out an adoption matchmaker at and give us a call at 719-395-2737

All adoptable animals receive the following services prior to adoption:

  • Spay or Neuter
  • Age-appropriate boosters
  • De-wormer
  • Vaccines
  • Microchip

Because Ellie is the Pet of the Week, his adoption fees are 50% off (Adoption fees vary by age and animal). Visit the Ark Valley Humane Society’s website to learn more.

The Ark Valley Humane Society is open and available by appointment only, make sure to call 719-395-2737 and schedule an appointment before coming to the shelter! If you or someone you know is in need of pet food, we have community pet food available! Just call us to arrange a contactless pick up! 

Fall Matching Campaign

In the month of October your donation goes further! Greg & Ruth Phillips and Bob & Sarah McMahon are challenging YOU to help raise crucial funds for AVHS! They will increase all donations by 50%, up to $7,000 contribution!
