Colorado Animal Rescue
Our Vision and Mission
Through a sense of community formed with several indigenous peoples and our core belief in achieving balance between modern technological assistance and millennia-old traditions, RezDawg Rescue strives to address the needs of stray companion animals in the Four Corners region of the US by providing Rescue ➜ Relocation ➜ Spaying/Neutering ➜ Fostering ➜ Adoption.
We are accomplishing these goals by becoming a dependable resource to members of the Navajo Nation and Zuni Pueblo. We do this by offering transportation to low cost or free spay/neuter services, respectfully teaching people how to humanely care for their animals, responding to cases of animal cruelty and neglect, assisting in emergency veterinary care for animals that are suffering on a case by case basis, and taking unwanted animals into our foster care. Community outreach is accomplished by going door-to-door and developing long standing relationships with native communities based on trust and mutual respect.

- 2019 year in reviewFebruary 2, 20200
2019 was an incredible year for so many dogs and cats! Thanks to our incredible network of volunteers, fosters, donors, rescue partners and fans, RezDawg Rescue had a positive impact for a lot of families. In 2019, we drove 81,200 miles during 58 trips across the Four Corners region so that we could rescue 1,754 dogs and cats. The numbers show a powerful story of how we continued to work with communities to save homeless pets through our transport, fostering, medical treatment and adoption efforts!

We feel a sense of accomplishment when our animals are adopted into loving homes. True, we didn't make them cute and irresistible. But we did rescue them from the Rez, made sure they were healthy and socialized, and generally hung out for a few weeks getting to know each other. We become invested. That's why we love receiving the one-year adoptaversary pics/video/story updates our adopters send in. They're confirmation that the RezDawg adoption process effectively finds "loving homes." But you know whats better than that? Adopters who send updates and return to adopt from RezDawg again. (And again.) We've decided this means the RezDawg adoption process effectively finds "loving homes" AND we're easy to do business with. But you know what's better than even that? When someone who encounters A LOT of animals decides to adopt from RezDawg, repeatedly. Elora works at the Boulder PetSmart and just adopted Bentley (the black and white one, now Eris, is her third cat from RezDawg.) As Elora puts it, "they're our world...they are all very good babies." (The calico is Harriet, the gray one is Harlow, black one is Cayde, white one is Captain, and then Bentley is now Eris.) We couldn't do what we do without ...
