All Breed Rescue & Training saves dogs from Colorado shelters who have no options left, providing foster homes, rehabilitation, and training services (available to the public) to give dogs the chance they deserve. We promote scientifically sound, relationship based, positive reinforcement training methods. As advocates for responsible pet ownership, we give out over $20k in free and reduced classes yearly.
Horses play a key role in our region’s history and heritage. We help make our busy trails safer by educating all trail users on proper trail etiquette and providing a one-of-a-kind free training area for all levels of horses and riders: from families with children to our wounded veterans and everyone in between. It is the only course in the U.S. in a public park with natural obstacles and three levels of difficulty.

Thousands of cats & kittens go homeless in the Pikes Peak Region every year, from those surrendered by heartbroken guardians to those abandoned outside, desperate to survive. We help solve all aspects of feline homelessness, by rescuing & finding homes for companion cats as well as preventing reproduction in both inside and outside cats. We work hard to help all cats & everyone in our community who cares for them.
Harley’s Hope is Colorado’s only multi-program safety net charity focused on providing services to help pets remain in their homes. We work with low-income pet parents who may struggle to afford life-saving veterinary care for their companions or need help caring for their pets when temporarily incapacitated due to their own illness, temporary homelessness, or domestic violence.
We help special cats at the first shelter in Colorado Springs for cats exclusively. We accept medically needy cats for rehab, treatment and adoption. Cats that need more time to become adoptable and that may be at-risk of euthanasia come from Colorado homes, rescue groups and other shelters.
Paws N Hooves Rescue is the only all-animal, all-volunteer rescue and rehab group in Southern Colorado. We are dedicated to help animals that are abused, abandoned, neglected, or no longer wanted by their current owners. While they are at our farm or a foster home, we provide care and training while finding a suitable permanent home. We literally put lipstick on a pig.
Creating connections between underprivileged children and underserved animals, we are the driver for placing deserving shelter animals with amazing foster kids. Our program allows for the presence of the human-animal bond in the lives of those who wouldn’t otherwise experience the love and joy that comes with our gift. We live by the phrase: “Save a Dog, Save a Child”.
We serve terminally ill people in El Paso and Teller counties by finding forever homes for their beloved pets. We honor our clients and their wishes by placing their beloved pets in only the most loving, life-long homes. We also offer a Wellness Program that provides in-home pet care services to owners facing a terminal illness. Our focus is to provide peace of mind to owners and pets in a time of need.
Our small shelter in Divide gives every animal that enters our doors the love, time and medical care they need to be ready for their new home. Each pet is microchipped, fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Our guests stay with us until they find the right family, no matter how long it takes and even if it takes a few tries. Our guests are part of our family until they find one of their own.
The mission of Victory Service Dogs is to improve the quality of life, and, in some cases, save the life, of Colorado veterans w/ PTSD or other mental or mobility issues through the partnership with a loving service dog, so they can achieve a more fulfilling life of increased independence, purpose & dignity. Our program is unique because we train the dog AND the veteran together, advancing their teamwork from day one.
This veteran founded cat rescue is dedicated to saving the precious lives of at-risk kitties other organizations don’t have the time or resources to help – those who are abandoned, abused, neglected, injured, sickly, displaced or surrendered. We strive to find them permanent homes or provide lifetime sanctuary or foster care.
