Our Mission

        To educate and promote responsible treatment of our companion animals that come into Colorado. We will drive change in advocacy through education, transparency and accountability.  We want to provide  support and protection to our consumers and voiceless companion animals.

We will work as stakeholders to implement and support Educational programs. 

All puppies and dogs must have a complete Vet examination prior to adoption as agreed upon by stakeholders.  Spay and neuter practices must be revisited.

Consumers suffer emotional damages and financial losses while our companion animals suffer sickness, emotional trauma and in some cases death.

Not all  Individuals that work in Rescue live under a halo just because they call themselves a Rescue.


 We would like to see

our Rescue community educated and certified prior to being licensed.  


         Working  on common sense approaches in canine legislation. More legislation does not equal change. Education and accountability equal change.


In 2017-2019

               73,900 Puppies came into Colorado many were sick.  The top 15 rescues/shelters account for 73% of the puppies that come into Colorado from other States.


We do not support Rescues/Shelters that mostly supply puppies.  


Lastly, no one ever wants to euthanize our companion animals in our Shelter's. 

 We must move forward in time and consider a new message. 


Our shelter's our the backbone of Colorado.

 Let's promote a new vision that engages and unites our Rescuing communities to benefit the 

voiceless


Colorado has some of the most amazingly gifted leaders doing amazing work in Animal Welfare.

Let's celebrate our successes.


2020


 Our consumers and our industry must have access to enforcement actions by PACFA.  Our community and consumers must be protected.


The Consumer and industry must have easy access to serve them in doing business.  Colorado does not have protection or a lemon law for consumer Issues.


 Lot's of new faces will be  joining the PACFA Advisory Board with new and fresh ideas. 


Why are Rescue dogs sitting in boarding facilities and kenneled for long periods of time? Something we must talk about.


News from PACFA for 2020 from their newsletter.


We will focus on establishing a robust educational component for PACFA licensees.

PRESENT

At the heart of this two-year improvement initiative is the SB19-158, which includes the nine recommendations from the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). These recommendations will make important improvements to the program. In particular, DORA’s recommendation to increase staff resources will allow PACFA to improve the current organizational structure of the program to address the rise in workload.


Currently, the organizational structure of the program is too horizontal, with one program manager responsible for the oversight of all facets of the PACFA program: licensing, inspections, budget, policy, industry outreach, etc. With additional resources, the master plan will be to reorganize the organizational structure by adding an additional inspector and establishing two new work units within the program:


 Inspections & Investigations Work Unit

 Licensing & Education Work Unit


Reorganizing the program into these two dedicated work units will allow PACFA to successfully address the steady rise in the workload, provide an addition level of oversight into the quality of PACFA inspections and investigations, and free up staff resources to implement the educational initiative described in this report.




Retail Rescue

Rescue: Saving a dog from danger or a distressing situation. An act of freeing from confinement, it also implies freedom from suffering.


Retail Rescue may be defined as the practice of procuring puppies and dogs, usually for little or no cost from shelters, owner surrenders, auctions or brokers. These animals are procured for the specific purpose of selling them for profit, with no regard for the health or welfare of the animal or the new owner. Hidden behind their emotional appeals you will find animals suffering.


Effective (10/2019 ) All Rescue and Shelter Dogs, including puppies must be altered prior to adoption. Our Colorado legislation continues to work on outstanding legislation. 35-80-164.4.
