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.

Our biggest fundraising day is almost here!

Donations are being matched up to $15,000!

Remember to Give Where You Live on December 10th!

Featured Rescues of the Week


Adam puts the “a” into awesome! Adorable in appearance and affectionate once comfortable in your company, he’s 12 pounds of happy. In fact, there’s nothing this mellow people-pleasing pup adores more than snuggling with his foster family and enjoying the ear rubs they give him. He also enjoys burrowing under blankets and pillows, napping in his cocoon-style soft bed, and going on walks where he’s slowly being introduced to new dogs and new people. While not especially interested in toys, and slightly nervous on car rides, he gets along with his much larger canine foster sister, is highly treat (soft ones) motivated, knows “sit” and is at work on learning more commands. Leash, crate and housetrained, Adam may be missing some teeth, but that hasn’t affected his appetite or his eagerness to find an affectionate fur-ever home that adores snuggles as much as he does.

Emory, Emerson & Logan

These three were born without eyelids and had to undergo extensive surgery at CSU to build new eyelids, which was an amazing process. They’re 8 months old now, super sweet, and just waiting for homes. After all they’ve been through, we really want them to find their furever homes ASAP!

Each kitty will need eyedrops daily for the rest of their lives, but other than that, they’re healthy and normal. Their foster mom, Patti, says they’re are just the sweetest cats, so we’d love to find homes for them for the holidays.
