Harley’s Hope Foundation


Harley’s Hope believes in the human-animal bond and focuses on the 250,000 pets surrendered each year solely due to their pet parents’ financial constraints. Tens of thousands more are euthanized for the same reason. We believe the key to reducing this number lies in providing options beyond euthanasia or surrender; both permanent solutions to often temporary challenges.


Harley’s Hope is the only full service safety-net agency in Colorado working to prevent pets from becoming homeless or being euthanized unnecessarily. We keep pets and people together via assistance with major veterinary care, quality training, and emergency fostering for pets living with people temporarily incapacitated due to illness or domestic violence. Since 2010, we have provided services to over 2,250 at-risk animals.


Volunteers to help run our social enterprise; foster homes for cats and dogs whose people are temporarily incapacitated, but want their pets back once they are able to care for them.
