About Us


Who We Are

Our PACFA licensed  animal rescue transport nonprofit consists of a small group of volunteers who transport dogs in urgent need from rural shelters in Colorado along Highway 50 (La Junta, Rocky Ford and nearby towns) to safety with rescue groups and larger shelters in the Denver area, where they are cared for and placed in forever homes. 

In 2018, we purchased 2 cargo vans  with the help of donations. We transport the doggies each week (a 6 hours round trip), usually once and sometimes twice a week, to ensure they make it out alive.

How We're Helping

A big part of what we do is networking before every transport to find rescues to receive each dog.  It is a huge relief for the small rural shelters to know that when the dogs are out of time at their facilities, they have a safe place to go.

We couldn't do what we do without the amazing rescue groups in Colorado! They step up for these dogs week after week and we can't thank them enough! Once we get the dogs safely to their new rescue, they are placed into foster homes where they get the vetting and attention they need before being placed up for adoption!


Get Involved

Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! 

We are always looking for volunteers to help drive the transport van.

If you live in La Junta or Rocky Ford  and would like to help at the shelters, please let us know. They need caring and dependable volunteers who can visit the dogs, take photos and help clean!
