Some of my best friends never say a word to me

Our Mission


To improve our “Standards of Care” for some of our best friends. 

The standards of care and our "QUALITY OF LIFE" for our companion animals in all facilities needs to increase and be addressed as a whole. With over 50,000 puppies and dogs coming into Colorado, our standards of care and “QOL” must be addressed. Consumer protection should be for the industry as a whole. Colorado has a “Retail Rescue” issue. Consumer protection and protection for “all” companion animals must be addressed.


 We have expanded our work into cruelty and neglect cases within our local communities. Currently companion animals are considered property by law. The legal rulings are slow to change.  Jefferson County has some amazing BAP officers and a well respected animal welfare program. Municipalities are slow to change and some just push paper, DA’s are reluctant to charge harder on cruelty cases.  Our pets by most individuals standards are viewed as part of our family. Laws must be changed by people.  Individuals must get involved in local and state politics.  We are always here as community advocates to chat or direct you to the right agency. We welcome your help if you have time.


When working with a rescue or shelter we believe it is wise to do a little research on them.  Make sure they are a licensed agency. Purchasing puppies or dogs over the internet and or advertised on craigslist is not advised. Always check with your BBB .  PAFCA  the  “Pet Animal Care Facility Act,” is a licensing and regulatory agency that will help you with rescue or shelter violations.

DO not always trust on-line reviews.  Rescuing an animal is never about volume or numbers. It is about QOC. “Quality of Care.” Placing then in a responsible safe place to have their best opportunity at a changed life. Our companion animals should not be handled as if you were going to a drive through or fast food restaurant.


You can always count of your local municipal animal shelters to find an amazing companion animal that has been completely vetted and evaluated for behavioral issues. 


 All shelters and rescues  should be held to the same regulatory standards as “Pet Stores” to protect our consumers, the industry, and our companion animals.  Currently non profit rescues have very little over site. We have more violations and violators in the non profit rescue world than any other group. We have 9 pet stores doing small amounts of business with few violations in Colorado. Most dogs purchased from back yard breeders or irresponsible breeders happens over the internet or in local parking lots. We do not support “PET STORES. “

We do however support responsible licensed breeders and hobby breeders. 


We should be working across party lines using factual data. Our regulatory standards must increase and violators held accountable. Consistency in regulatory practices is needed. We would like to see Marlon Reis use his place in leadership to support the industry as a whole advocating and becoming more educated about the true issues Colorado has in sheltering, rescuing, breeding, spay and neuter, and the warehousing of our precious dogs and cats.  We would like to see less political posturing and more working together for the benefit of our communities and the animals we as Coloradans love. 


Our Colorado companion animals need protection and better standards of care, whether Shelter or Rescue we can do better. WE HAVE AMAZING RESCUES AND SHELTERS THAT SUFFER BECAUSE OF OUR RETAIL RESCUE INDUSTRY. RESCUES should not bring dogs or cats to Colorado only to be warehoused. REGULATORY compliance should be for all.  Holding Animal Abusers in our communities accountable should carry stiffer penalties. The animals should not have to suffer caught up in regulatory red tape. Our "Animal Welfare Agencies" and "Animal Welfare Leaders"  along with our legislators have a responsibility to their constituents, and our communities to protect our animals.  Our companion animals are part of our families. An industry should not be run on emotions and drama. Look to factual data.  Education, dedication and leadership are key.
