I did dog rescue for many years with a private breed rescue. Ark Valley is held in high esteem in the rescue community. My group considered them one of the two best shelters in the state (the other is Boulder Humane - much larger and with a lot more funds at their disposal). Now that my family is ready to adopt a cat, I plan to adopt from Ark Vallry, even though we live in a town over 2 hours away.
