In an on going effort to help ALL animals in need of care, we are committed to serving our less fortunate furry community. We offer a multitude of free and discounted services to all rescue pets and new adoptions. We love our four legged, three legged, and even two legged friends so much we have dedicated a page solely to them. We hope that you will consider getting involved in the rescue community in any way you can. There is so much you can do to help, aside from adopting a pet yourself. Shelters and rescues often need donations of goods, such as, food, blankets, leashes and more. Sometimes donating your time is just as valuable. Each organization relies heavily on volunteers for help promoting adoptions, feeding and cleaning, and even things as simple as taking a dog on a walk or snuggling a cat for a few minutes. If you love animals but just don't want the full commitment, or are considering adding a furry member to your family, fostering could be for you. Fostering is essential to help with the issues of overcrowding, wellness/virus control (young pets immunity is still developing just like children), and even aids in lowering the number of pets euthanized each year. Below are some of our local organizations whose pets we regularly care for. Take a look, and if there is anything you can do to help, reach out.
Underdogs Animal Rescue is a Colorado-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit all-breed animal rescue. We are dedicated to changing the perception of the “underdog” - the forgotten ones, the misunderstood ones, the ones that get picked last (or don’t get picked at all…). We give these longshots the opportunity to beat their odds, confident that they will prove that the underdog is the best dog, every single time.
All of our underdogs (and a few cats) are saved from overcrowded partner shelters and rescue groups, where they would have otherwise not received a much-deserved second chance. Our adoptable animals are located in foster homes, which allows us to continue working on socialization and basic training and to assess best-fit placements for our adopters. We believe that adoption, education, advocacy and community partnerships are our best chance at solving the pet overpopulation crisis in our country and beyond. Underdogs seeks to continually expand our team of heroes. Please join us today, we have so many more lives to save!
"Through a sense of community formed with several indigenous peoples, and our core belief in achieving balance between modern technological assistance and millennia-old traditions, RezDawg Rescue strives to address the needs of stray companion animals in the Four Corners region of the US by providing Rescue ➜ Relocation ➜ Spaying/Neutering ➜ Fostering ➜ Adoption.
We are accomplishing these goals by becoming a dependable resource to members of the Navajo Nation and Zuni Pueblo. We do this by offering transportation to low cost or free spay/neuter services, respectfully teaching people how to humanely care for their animals, responding to cases of animal cruelty and neglect, assisting in emergency veterinary care for animals that are suffering on a case by case basis, and taking unwanted animals into our foster care. Community outreach is accomplished by going door-to-door and developing long standing relationships with native communities based on trust and mutual respect."
Humane Society of Boulder Valley
"It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. We were founded more than a century ago in 1902, yet this mission holds true today as we counter animal neglect and cruelty and partner with other animal welfare organizations, sharing our mutual mission of saving more animals' lives.
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. Our success rates are enhanced by our behavior modification program, which helps shelter dogs and cats overcome behavior problems, and our shelter medicine program, providing quality and compassionate medical services to shelter animals."
