This rescue was founded in December of 2012 by a determined Scottish woman who loves dogs more than anything in the world.  The rescue is made up of people in the community who have like-minded values and a passion for the dogs in crisis who at no fault of their own enter the shelter system. We do not have a shelter or boarding facility, and instead rely on a network of volunteer foster homes to save our companion animals. 

Our goal is to rescue as many animals from euthanasia as possible and adopt them into responsible forever homes. To achieve that goal we take our time getting to know each adoptable animal, socializing and training them as needed. We see to any medical need that presents itself, from the basics to the extreme. Then we work on locating the perfect family for each dog. We are not a breed specific rescue, instead we work with all breeds of dogs and cat. We have adoption events most weekends either in Denver, Aurora, or Englewood.  Check out  HOME page for the next event and contact us at [email protected].

Check us out on social media!  If you are tech obsessed and love animals we are always looking for people to help out with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Pintrest.  Visit our VOLUNTEER page to learn more. 

Join us and fight for their freedom!
