Black Forest Animal Sanctuary


Black Forest Animal Sanctuary is an all-animal rescue and rehab group dedicated to helping animals that are abused, neglected or no longer wanted by their current owners. We are the only all-animal and all-volunteer rescue group in Colorado. We are expanding our commitment to provide service and therapy dogs for those in need, and we offer educational programs on animal care to the Pikes Peak community.


Our rescue teams respond at all hours during disasters and upon local law enforcement requests to protect animals that we love. We believe in a no-kill philosophy and rescue from euthanasia lists at public shelters. For over 20 years we have served the Pikes Peak region, rehabilitating and finding homes for thousands of animals. The impact of connecting a returning service member with a dog we have trained is enormous.


Hay; livestock feed; alfalfa hay cubes; chicken feed; senior horse feed; sand; horse stall barn; office supplies: copy paper, HP printer cartridges (950xl and 951 colors); farm truck; ATV; and a trailer.

Of the dogs entering public shelters, approximately 31 percent are euthanized.

“We adopted Trent, who BFAS saved from a shelter euthanasia list. I have MS and had just lost my service animal. He gives me a reason to get out of bed every day.”
