Humane Society of Boulder Valley > Colorado No Kill Animal Shelters
The former head of Boulder City’s shelter has been indicted by Clark County grand jury on charges of animal cruelty, prosecutors said Thursday.
Tessa is a Boulder native and graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2016. She completed Karen Pryor's Dog Trainer Foundations Course in 2015 and began volunteering at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to get her fill of tail wags and slobbery kisses. Soon after, she began assisting with puppy socialization classes and with behavior modification for the shelter dogs, and quickly caught the "training bug." She is currently enrolled in the Dog Trainer Professional Program through Karen Pryor Academy and hopes to earn her certification in December of 2017. Tessa is passionate about the life-changing effect pets can have on their people, and is committed to using force-free and science-based training techniques to help promote that bond. She regularly volunteers with a local service dog organization and hopes to one day train service animals to help people with PTSD and other disabilities.
Lindsey is originally from Massachusetts and graduated from New York University. She then spent several years in San Francisco, working in advertising and volunteering at animal rescue groups helping with everything from puppy socialization to foster to event planning. In order to pursue her dream of working with shelter dogs, Lindsey left San Francisco to spend a year studying dog behavior and animal learning while volunteering at shelters across the country. She then settled in Boulder in 2014 and completed the Humane Society of Boulder Valley’s Behavior Modification Immersion Program. Lindsey is now a consultant for our Training Center and is so excited to be living her dream of helping dogs and their families. She lives with two rescued dogs of her own, a beagle mix named Gracie and a pit bull named Kona.

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley provides shelter and care to more than 7,000 animals each year, with 93 percent of these animals being successfully adopted or reunited with their guardians.

Each year, we handle over 2,000 stray animals who come through our doors. Because we have no way of ensuring the vaccination status of these animals, HSBV has made the decision to vaccinate all animals - dogs for DHPP and Bordetella and cats for FVRCP - when arriving at our shelter. Vaccines help to protect stray animals while they wait at the shelter to be reunited with their guardians and inhibit the spread of communicable diseases throughout our community.The Humane Society of Boulder Valley provides shelter and care to more than 8,000 animals each year, with 89 percent of these animals being successfully adopted or reunited with their guardians.
