All Breed Rescue & Training has been an integral part of the community since 1996. We ONLY rescue and rehabilitate LOCAL at-risk dogs who often have no options left. Our Best of the Springs winning training services give our foster dogs a new leash on life. Hundreds of other dogs from our community every year benefit from our relationship based training programs, many of whom utilizing free or reduced cost services.
ABRT is the longest running all breed rescue in Colorado Springs. With our network of foster homes, we rescue and rehabilitate Colorado’s dogs that might traditionally be deemed “unadoptable” and give them the tools they need to thrive in a permanent home. We are dedicated to the well-being of all dogs, so all aspects of our training and behavior programs are, and always have been, relationship based and force free.
We are always looking for foster homes! Other needs include grant writers, dog walkers, gift cards to stores like Costco / Lowe’s / Walmart, cleaning supplies, and facility improvement volunteers
Studies show that among owners who relinquished their dogs, 2 out of 3 cite behavior issues as a primary reason.
“All Breed Rescue & Training is an amazing team. There are not enough words to describe the huge dedication, passion, care and professionalism they demonstrate in rescuing those special dogs and helping them find their forever home.” — Claudia Melzig, Volunteer and Board Member
