Colorado Dog Rescue Groups

If you are looking for a specific breed and do not see it, search the Internet and find the national breed-specific rescue group. Every breed has one! Check out the list below and contact your local rescue organization. You can also search Petfinder.com, Petharbor.com, and Petango.com.

Although we believe the rescues on the list below all care for the dogs and place them in homes in an ethical manner, you may want to read this article about unethical rescues to assure yourself that you are working with an organization committed to the humane treatment of dogs.
