Re-homing options in Colorado

If our services (such as our NewHome Program or Foster Program) are not exactly what you are looking for, there are other great re-homing options listed below.

FOSTER PROGRAMS

These rescues and shelters offer pet foster care services.  Space within foster care programs is usually limited, so you may need to try a few places before you find the right fit. Please note that these programs are not intended for temporary or long-term boarding purposes.

LIMITED & OPEN ADMISSION SHELTERS

Limited admission shelters control their intake by accepting a limited number of animals into their facility, and by maintaining a wait list for admission. The primary benefit to this shelter type is that they only euthanize animals under extreme conditions, or for natural reasons like end of life. Please note that open admission shelters will take any animal but may euthanize based on their own criteria. It is important to do research on a shelter’s admission and euthanasia policies before surrendering an animal.
