Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue’s mission is to save unwanted puppies and young adult dogs from being euthanized in overcrowded kill shelters. We place these rescues with foster families until they are adopted to their forever homes. We promote our mission through educating the general public about spaying and neutering their pets, proper exercise, feeding, grooming and training. We take pride in the fact that we are a no-kill rescue and placement program that does not euthanize the animals we rescue if they are not adopted within a certain length of time. Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescues’ intention is to find loving FOREVER homes for these beautiful creatures through careful adoption placement. RMPR spay and neuters all animals prior to adoption and promotes spay neuter of the publics owned animals by sponsoring monthly vouchers and two large mobile spay neuter clinics yearly.

Results: RMPR has rescued, vetted and rehomed over 3400 animals since August of 2010. We have spay neutered over 1620 animals by SPAY NEUTERING all of our animals prior to adoption and by funding owned animal spay neuter clinics and vouchers in impoverished rural areas and will continue this mission in order to achieve NO KILL in the US Shelters. We believe by working together with other reputable rescues, shelters, rescue workers and the public that we can end the plight many animals face in municipal shelters , and that Together We Can Save MORE!

Target demographics: Abadoned animals of all ages and breeds/

Direct beneficiaries per year: 890 animals in 2014 were rescue, vetted and found loving homes. Over 1100 pets were surgically altered by RMPR Vets

Geographic areas served: RMPR rescues and medically treats discarded shelter pets all over the desert south west to help them find loving furever homes

Programs: Rescue, rehoming, vetting, spay neuter of all our adoptable animals, and SPAY IT FORWARD clinics and vouchers offered to areas with high kill rates and low rates of spay and neuter.

First and foremost they gave us a puppy with the Parvo virus. If you dont know what that is it is extremely deadly to puppies. Volunteers were amazing the day of the event. The owner however was very rude and unprofessional, and refused to take responsibility. We havenot even had our girl for a week. She is now in the hospital fighting for her life. Also Rocky Mountain recommended this hospital and the staff there do not like doing business with Rocky Mountain. If my family could give negative stars we would. They are truly interested in making money instead of ensuring that healthy puppies are put into loving homes. So if you like $ 1,000 medical bills and worrying incessantly then please do adopt from Rocky Mountain. Since they cannot guarantee you will have a healthy puppy.

I cannot express enough, how much the efforts of this organization means to me and my family.
They rescued my best friend and his littermates when their mother died giving birth to them. Rescuing them, when they were less than a day old.
The foster-mom and her family, cared for them, and loved-on them for the weeks, and weeks it took, until they were old enough to be adopted. Waking up, to feed the little puppies at all hours, and making sure they were safe as they grew.
Then they screened all of the families that wished to adopt one, to make sure the pups would be taken care of, and loved the rest of their lives. We were blessed with the opportunity to bring Bear into our family, and for that I am eternally grateful.
The volunteers at Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue deserve wings. Their actions and efforts show that they are really angels here on earth, showing us what love really means.
Thank you all, for all you have done, and all you continue to do everyday.

I have volunteered with other rescues, but RMPR is heads above the rest in terms of their care for the rescued dogs' health and well-being. Their intake process for dogs/puppies taken from the shelter is intensive as they inspect each dog, weigh them, photograph and deliver vaccinations/flea/tick meds to each and every one. Also, I know of no other rescue that supports their foster volunteers as much or as well as they do, providing quality food, kennels, blankets, toys, collars. Their extraordinary support of those of us who foster the dogs in our homes further ensures the good health and well-being of the dogs adopted from this rescue.

I am both a foster and adopter, and love this group. Their dedication to the animals is outstanding - dogs that find the way into RMPR have hit the jackpot! RMPR dedicates whatever is needed to each animal to make sure they are healthy and happy - this includes the adoption process which helps match dog to perfect fit in family and environment.

Adopting our dogs from RMPR was so simple and easy, but we could also tell that they take great care to make sure the dogs are going to quality homes. They give you everything you need to help start with your puppy and are really wonderful to work with. Overall an awesome organization!!!

I've been volunteering for RMPR for 5 years now. They rock. They give you all of the supplies you need and are great about finding perfect homes for the pups. RMPR Is committed to saving as many dogs as they can by not only finding fosters for the dogs but raising money to help spay and neuter pets and by providing surgeries for animals where other rescues just turn their heads at these poor babies due to the cost. Please help support RMPR save lives.

Do you think you can't invest love and time into a dog or cat, just to let it go???

I've been a foster with RMPR since the beginning. Before, I fostered with just about every shelter in the area. Other rescues and shelters take the animal from you, put them in petsmart or petco and you never know what happens to them. They're just gone.

RMPR is different! All foster expenses are paid... Food, medical, supplies. I used to have to buy all that myself with other rescues. ADOPTERS, THAT is where your adoption fees are going!

I've fostered hundreds of dogs and a few kitties with RMPR... I have contact information for every one. I get to interview families and have a say in who my babies go to. I also get frequent updates from families. It's wonderful... I'm still a part of my fosters lives and I know they're safe and very well loved. I can even get occasional lovins when families stop by an event to say hi! This has always been Emma and Tom's goal... Not just to turn dogs over to anyone with the cash. All placements must be for the live of the dog. RMPR volenteers are always there for you long after adoption day. RESCUE IS A PROMISE!

We were so glad we found this puppy rescue for our "puppy" who is now 4. He is such a great addition to our family. Kim (our dog's foster mommy) is absolutely wonderful, watching her through the past years as she raised/loved/nurtured these little creatures. This rescue does amazing things. Wish them all the best in the future. I always refer people to them when they are looking for a new addition.

Our clinic works with RMPR regularly to spay and neuter as well as care for their dogs medically. Over the years I have worked with many rescue groups but none that are as compassionate and knowledgeable as these guys. They step up to the plate time after time to help animals that otherwise would not have a chance. We recommend them regularly to clients looking for new furry family members. Their staff and volunteers are dedicated and easy to work with.

We met our beautiful pups at an adoption event that RMPR had at Petco. We had lost our last dog to cancer and we ready to bring a new family member into our home. The event was so well organized and the volunteers were so helpful as we visited with the pups. The time this group takes to make sure each adoption is forever is critical to placing the pups in their new homes. It was a great experience overall and we thrilled to have our new editions!

The amount of dogs this group has saved is amazing! We have four dogs from this group that are now part of our family. As a volunteer, my children have learned a greater respect for all animals. It has even created stronger bonds between us because we do this as a family. I am continously amazed at the lives they save and the work they do. They take in the sick and unloved and heal them. I am proud to be associated with this great group!!!

I adopted my pet Chihuahua from RMPR and I found the whole process to be very efficient and effective. We filled out paperwork, met the dogs, were interviewed and took home our new family member. The fosters were there to answer questions and the volunteer were helpful and knowledgeable. I was so impressed, I volunteered to be a foster too for a short time. This is a wonderful rescue.

I adopted my dog from this group and loved how they wanted to know more about me and my lifestyle when helping me find the next companion to add to my family. I have adopted from other groups in the past that were all too happy to take my money without even asking my name. The volunteers and fosters that I met at the adoption event really know their dogs available for adoption. You can tell they really care not only for the puppies and dogs while in their care but they are concerned about where the pup will go! I plan to reach out to them to become a volunteer and foster myself!

I followed this organization for some time on Facebook and in December 2014 they had a need for more fosters to bring dogs in from a kill shelter in New Mexico. I signed up for one dog and got my "little girl" within a week. She landed her forever loving home in a few short weeks. All told I have had six dogs as fosters at one time or another in my home. Just fostering one dog makes a difference and I am glad to be associated with this tireless group of volunteers in this organization.

I would like to point out that RMPR has brought in precious dogs that otherwise would not have had a chance, nursed them to health and helped them find their homes. RMPR also does not leave Mama behind when they bring in puppies! The family comes.

It is a bittersweet goodbye when your foster leaves for their forever home, but I prefer that any day to watching these wonderful dogs die alone and scared in a shelter.

I started out by adopting my two wonderful puppies through this rescue last year. After researching the group further and reaching out to ask questions, I found that I loved what they were able to do and how they went about accomplishing it. My husband and I started fostering for them in October and they have been amazing at making sure we had all the supplies we needed so we could properly care for and love the numerous puppies and dogs that came through our doors. With everything they do, you can always see their love and passion for what they do as they constantly strive to make a bigger difference.

This is an amazing charity that operates on the barest of administrative costs. Almost all of the resources makes it directly to the dogs for their care and feeding. Most of this effort is operated by volunteers or staff who make minimal salries. There are no shelters, only fosters. The dogs are well cared for and loved until they are adopted!

This rescue really puts their money to work for the communities they serve. Not only do they work with small rural shelters to lower the euthanasia rate in poor/rural areas by transferring dogs out, they actually go to these areas with their vets and conduct low cost S/N clinics of owned animals to stop the problem where it begins. Great group of people!
