 Do not give the best of yourself to those that do not see the best in you! 

The results of our work and many others created changes in Colorado's "standards of Care and "quality of life" for our companions. Thankful...  


  2022: HB1160 rule making on warehousing of dogs along with disease control (DCAT) rules is now finalized.

HB21-1160

The

“Care of Dogs And Cats In Pet Animal Facilities.”

The bill provided guidelines for the care of pet animals in the custody of certain pet animal facilities and the disease control of dogs, puppies, and kitties,  imported into our state. The disease control protocol (DCAT) is now complete. The requirements of the 2019 Sunset review and rule making process is now complete.  Thank you to our faithful stakeholders.


In 2019, the Colorado Department of Regulatory “Sunset Review” process began. We were honored to have a seat at the table as a contributor on the “Sunset Review” and to be Stakeholders over the last several years with (PACFA ) within “The Department of Agriculture.”  We were honored  to be recently invited to participate on the 2022 “Bureau of Animal  Protection” BAP committee as stakeholders on some up incoming new rule changes. 


 We have worked for years lobbing for better standards of care for our best friends and are excited to move on in our new mission. We  have participated for years as stakeholders with (PACFA) and have worked with our legislators since 2017.  


It has been a heavy lift but it resulted in our new “standards of care training program.” We developed our program in rural Colorado placing good dogs with good people. Our goal is for them to never return back to the shelter.  We call it  “Pawsitve  Pathways.” We have partnered with a few very special rescues and shelter partners building an amazingly new program  serving rural Colorado dogs.  We are currently building a facility and agility course.  We teach our dogs to use their brains and have some fun doing it. 

In less than one year 18 dogs have been placed in loving homes along with over 100 transfers to licensed shelters or rescues. Thousands of dollars in community support has poured in to support our mission.

 Every dog deserve a good life. Placing good dogs wth good people.

“We speak dog. “

It doesn't matter what your party affiliation may be or the medium you use to speak out -- unless we ALL raise our voices and tell our legislators and our regulatory agencies we want a higher level of care for our companion animals, suffering will continue. Thankfully we made some amazing changes beginning in 2023.

We look to our Sheltering community to lead in the industry as they already have standards of care in place they lead our legislative discussions and they lead our educational groups on rule making our his year.


 PACFA has now completed their Education training modules and will require a test for  licensees. We have enjoyed working on several  committees.

We believe the greatest accomplishment in Colorado was passing HB21-1160, 

addressing our standards of care for animals being warehoused and their care.

 We have very minimal standards of care for our dogs and cats. It is a great beginning.


BSL bans on  pit bull bans have been lifted in three cities in 2021..   Any dog can be dangerous. Let’s not discriminate. Only Louisville and Lone Tree still have bans in effect.

Our  COMMUNITY Commitment

Our society is at a critical point in shaping the future of animal welfare. Colorado is leading  welfare . 

   It’s about thoughtful public policy. 

We must work together to create the best outcomes for all animals.

The mental well being of an animal must be considered and will be now in rules and are now law. 

Placing known dangerous animals creates life threatening outcomes for people and other pets is also law.

New DISEASE Control Rules

Will be implementation in 2023. 

Thanks to the direction provided through the 2019 Sunset review process, changes have been accomplished.  . PACFA has established a new Inspection and Investigation Work Unit. Rules for diseased puppies and dogs brought into Colorado  and warehousing of dogs suffering in boarding will go into effect in 2023.
