heart1Working towards the day when every pet has a loving home. Animal Rescue of the Rockies pulls homeless dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters and places them in loving foster homes until their forever homes are found. We promote spaying and neutering to reduce pet overpopulation and encourage quality relationships between pets and their people through behavior resources and training.

Featured Rescues of the Month


Stretched out on the sofa, Dusty dearest is wearing his best “come over and sit awhile” smile. Easy to teach and eager to learn, he’s sweet with just the right touch of spice, LOVES people and children, walks well on leash, and is moderately active. Not a fan of cats or other dogs, he’s on the hunt for a home where he’s either their one and only four-legged love or where there’s already another large dog in residence.


Sleek as a panther in her long, shiny black coat, stylish Suzie was made for stroking and petting, loving and pampering. Sweetness purrs-onified with affection to spare, the noble 9-year-old is on the prowl for a fur-ever home to pamper her in exchange for her sassy Suzie loving. Currently located at the Cat Casita in Fairplay, her cat guardian, Kerrie, can be contacted at 970-485-3342.
