Pets Forever Program to continue running after receiving funds

During the fall semester, Pets Forever was at risk of termination due to insufficient funds, but it will now continue to run after receiving funds over winter break.

Pets Forever is a course offered at Colorado State University designed to help low-income, elderly and disabled residents of Larimer County keep their pets as long as possible. Students taking this course help provide services for the clients and their pets including in-home care and medical services.


“We have been fortunate enough to get grants from Animal Assistance Foundation and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals totaling in $30,000,” said Lori Kogan, director and founder of the program.

Mikaela Henry, a third-year biology major who has been involved with Pets Forever since her freshman year, said she is excited the program will continue running so she could continue being involved until she becomes a veterinarian.

The budget for this program is about $125,000 a year, and although the grants will not cover all costs, Kogan said they will continue to search for opportunities and additional funding to continue to run the program.

“I have every intention of doing what I can to keep this program running,” Kogan said.
