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 Week


Lounging dreamily outside her foster home, bighearted Butters lives to love and be loved. The 50-pound beauty who thinks she’s a lapdog adores attention and affection, and counts snuggling and cuddling as her two favorite activities. Not to mention having her belly rubbed! Laid back and easygoing most of the time, she prefers stuffed animals to toys, and especially enjoys chewing on bones. She gets along well with the other dogs, knows “sit”,”down”, and “come” being highly food and praise motivated, will do all that she can to please her people. Having been rescued from an abusive situation, she’s not only learning that she’s safe now but she’s also at work on re-learning proper indoor doggy manners. Both crate and house trained, beautiful Butters will slide easily into a patient and loving home committed to her ongoing education and to keeping her mentally stimulated and physically satisfied fur-ever.


Dusty is a 11 year old sweetheart in search of his forever home. Dusty was turned into the cat casita with his brother when their elderly mom fell sick and could no longer care for them. Dusty’s brother was adopted now it’s time for this sweet boy to find his forever home.

Currently located at the Cat Casita in Fairplay, with his cat guardian, Kerrie, can be contacted at 970-485-3342.
