Our Mission

        To Collaborate and work with other like minded agencies for a better tomorrow for our communities and our companion animals.  A voice for the voiceless. We work with legislators and other agencies that support  advocacy, education, transparency and accountability for our consumers  and our companion animals.  We are a compassionate group of business owners and  animal lovers that work or have worked within the industry.
We are a community of  stakeholders supporting the  implementation of an Educational program and an Inspection program as was outlined on the  SB-158 
2019 Sunset Review . We support common sense legislation for our companion animals for a better tomorrow for man and their companions. 

         

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.


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 in our Shelters.

Let's celebrate our successes.


2020

Colorado does not have protection or a lemon in law to protect  consumer  issues in regards to adoptions of  rescue puppies and dogs that are sick or have behavioral 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 for long periods of times?


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, usually in large volumes. They are procured for the purpose of selling in high volume. This is not rescue. Some  have no regard for the health or welfare of the animal or the new owner.  Hidden behind the word rescue you will find many complaints with PACFA , better business bureau, animal control ,  and our court system. Yes you will find animals suffering too.

RESCUE: saving a dog from danger or a distressing situation. An act of freeing from freedom of suffering.


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.
