Our Mission


Our goal is to raise the standard of care for our Colorado Companion animals.


We collaborate and work with other like minded agencies and individuals for a better tomorrow for our communities and our companion animals.  A voice for the voiceless.  We work with legislators, PACFA, and our community to support  advocacy, education, transparency and accountability for our consumers  and our companion animals.  We are a compassionate group of business owners and animal lovers.

 We are a community of stakeholders supporting the implementation of an Educational program as outlined on the  

SB20-158, 2019 Sunset Review.

       

Working on common sense approaches in canine legislation.  More legislation does not equal change.  Accountability equals change.


In 2017-2019  73,900 puppies came into Colorado many were sick based on the states records bringing revenues of over  65 million dollars.  The top 15 licensed rescues/shelters with PACFA account for 73% 

of the puppies that come into Colorado from other States.


Colorado has some of the most amazingly gifted rescuers doing amazing work in animal welfare.  Let's work for a better tomorrow in our state for our consumers and doggies.


Colorado does not have a lemon law to protect our consumers if they adopt or purchase a puppy or dog that is sick or has behavioral issues.


RETAIL RESCUE

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 for resale.  Pet stores are decreasing  as retail rescuers increase. 

We have only 8 pet stores in Colorado.  Retail rescues are replacing the pet store model in Colorado.  They generally are selling large volumes of puppies.  Puppies are big business bringing millions of dollars in revenue into Colorado. Some have no regard for the health or welfare of the puppies or the new owners.  Hidden behind the halo of being a non profit and calling themselves rescues you will find people and animals suffering and complaints

 with PACFA , better business bureau, animal control , and our court system.  The majority of our Rescues are doing amazing work.  

As with any industry you will always have a few bad apples.


RESCUE: saving a dog from danger or a distressing situation. An act of freeing from freedom of suffering.  Confinement of hard to place dogs in our Colorado boarding facilities for long periods of times mentally suffering is not rescue or humane. Bringing dogs from one bad situation to another is heartbreaking for everyone involved.
