Make a difference in the lives of rescue dogs by helping at an adoption event!

Every Saturday at a Petco in Arvada our rescue holds adoption events from 12-3 to find homes for the dogs in our foster network. We are a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that rescues, cares for, spays/neuters, and re-homes puppies and adult dogs that find themselves in overcrowded kill-shelters.

With help from volunteers like YOU we are able to hold adoption events each weekend to find them wonderful forever homes!

We are looking for people who can help with any of the tasks below and more:
* Setting up the event (pens, tables, large pens for adults, etc.)
* Breaking down the event
* Interviewing potential families
* Walking adult dogs during the event and talking with the public about them or our rescue
* Watching over puppy pens, making sure that everything is clean, they have water, and taking them to the interview pens to meet with families.

About ROCKY MOUNTAIN PUPPY RESCUE

Location:

1604 S COUNTY ROAD 15, BERTHOUD, CO 80513, US

Mission Statement

To rescue, foster, vet and re-home unwanted shelter animals and promote spay and neuter of all animals. End Pet Overpopulation with our SPAY IT FORWARD program, providing subsidized spay neuter surgeries for impoverished counties in the South West US.

Description

A few of us volunteered at a local rescue here in Colorado. While fostering was rewarding, the needs of the animals were not all met - we were isoltated with our charges and unsupported. Not feeling the most was was being done for the sake of the animals, we felt inspired. "WE CAN DO BETTER!"

Fortunately, there were others that felt the same and the Rocky Mountains Puppy Rescue was born! We credit our previous experiences as having inspired us to dig deeper into the rescue community...NO ONE works alone and se we sat down to hash out the beginnings of RMPR. We have expanded and added many positions including a Foster and Volunteer Coordinator, Operations Mnager, and an Event & Online Content Manager. Many folks have joined the mission and have added many wonderful facets to the group.
