When my friend rescued a puppy who was hit by a truck on the highway, no vet hospital would admit and treat him, all, including the Humane Society wanted to euthanize him. My daughter contacted ColoRADo Dogs who immediately created a fundraiser so the puppy could have life-saving surgery. Today he is a rambunctious youngster who is a loved member of our family of humans and dogs! The people who head ColoRADo Dogs are compassionate, caring people who will do what needs to be done to save a dog's life, no matter what it's breed. They remain a favorite charity in our family!
ColoRADogs understands that advocacy isn't just about dogs, it's about people too. They are amazingly adept at navigating through very emotional waters and finding the best solution for both dogs and their people. They provide necessary resources to help people keep their pets at home and they provide care and homes for dogs that can no longer stay with their people. The folks at ColoRADogs work tirelessly to be a resource for the community and to do so with grace and intelligence. ColoRADogs steps up to help the shelters in their community and beyond as well, to provide foster homes and permanent homes for dogs that need a second chance to succeed. I wholeheartedly support ColoRADogs, their dogs, their people, and their mission. They are a shining example of what rescue and advocacy can be.
I am proud to support the mission of ColoRADogs. ColoRADogs supports the bond between people and their dogs via advocacy, education, and owner support, utilizing innovative and effective approaches. The program also rescues, fosters and rehabilitates a select number of dogs for adoption, with an emphasis on quality both in the selection of dogs as well as adoptive homes. ColoRADogs also advocates heavily for pit bull type dogs in the political arena through their efforts to educate people regarding Breed Specific Legislation and it's effect on creating safe and humane communities for all. This organization operates with the utmost integrity in all aspects, and is starting to be recognized both locally and nationally for it's success.
Since I moved to Colorado nearly 2 years ago, Coloradogs is the only rescue to really blow me away. They are the only rescue around here that has a heavy influence on dog's rights politically, and encourage education among owners. They do so much more than help dogs who lost their way.
I am an animal lover - all animals. I lived in the country - on a farm - and have raised horses & have had a wide variety of pets (4 children who had my same love of all animals & they learned to beg really well - yes I'm a softy). I got connected with Coloradogs through Facebook & while I have never owned a Pit Bull, I have always felt that they have been given a bad rap. My son asked me, a number of years ago, if he could get a Rottweiler. Only knowing the "reputation" of these dogs, I was a bit nervous, but I also knew that "training a dog does make". I told him yes, but with the understanding that he worked with her. She was the best dog - a true love (her name was Pebbles - from the Flintstones) and all who met her, human or animal, fell in love with her also. But I did research on the breed before I said yes. Pit bulls fall into the same category - do your research. These dogs were bred to be "Nannies" - loving, caring, and protective of their "family". Only really sick people will take a loving muscular animal and create something, through abuse, to make them what they aren't. And only sick people will feel that this abuse is acceptable if it gives them some sort of horrible idea of entertainment. Coloradogs sees and knows this & their hearts are super huge. I am so proud to be related to one of the members of this group & I know her love is real, her research & knowledge of these dogs is extensive & I am so proud of the work she is doing!!!
ColoRADogs is a true advocate for dogs and their people. Not only have they saved and rehabilitated many dogs from terrible situations, they also have kept people and their dogs together by supporting families financially and emotionally. ColoRADogs is instrumentally in educating the public about the ineffectiveness of breed bans. Yay for ColoRADogs. Thanks for being you.
I had the great pleasure of visiting Coloradogs from Australia in July 2014 with the aim of building my knowledge and gaining insight and expertise from a well established and respected rescue and advocacy organisation. I am director of a similar organisation in Sydney, Australia and I was not disappointed! This group is extremely well run, progressive and open minded, the members are a wealth of knowledge, and the animals in their care are beautifully looked after. They are already achieving big things and I have no doubt will only grow and flourish.
The people of ColoRADogs are amazing! They're the type of people who are truly invested in their community. Not only do they help dogs, they're about helping owners.
I adopted my dog LuLu from ColoRADogs and she's amazing!
My family and I experienced nothing but positive, professional, and friendly encounters with ColoRADogs before, during, and after the adoption process. It can be intimidating working with a rescue because you know that your family and your home will be under scrutiny to ensure that you are a good fit for one of their dogs and/or they seem to be all about the money. We never experienced any judgment and knew that they were invested in what was best for all parties involved. We are grateful to ColoRADogs for their superior skill and efforts in the dog rescue community. Even though our adoption is finalized ColoRADogs continues to be available to provide support and encouragement. We highly recommend them for your next adoption or help with rehabilitating your dog.
ColoRADogs is very helpful in spreading awareness and info on the "pitbull" breeds . They are also a great Organization to get a rescued fur baby from ! I will definitely be involved with them in either fostering or trying to help in anyway possible - JP
When the shelter I worked at received 64 fight bust dogs we were overwhelmed to say the least! Coloradogs was one of many rescues that reached out to help. They networked our dogs to rescues, helped with transfer routes, even transferred some in to their rescue and eventually placed several into adoptive homes. This was almost two years ago and Coloradogs is still a resource and relationship we value!
