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.

- RezDawg Rescue and the 2018 Finish LineDecember 28, 20180
Last chance to save 2,000 RezDawgs and Rez Cats in 2019! Even a $10 donation saves lives... Your generosity throughout 2018 helped us rescue, transport, spay/neuter, vaccinate, foster, and adopt over 1,600 animals in need from the Four Corners Region. Our goal is to rescue over 2,000 animals during 2019 and to do that, we need your help. Time is running out to make a tax-deductible, year-end gift to RezDawg so we can save more animals in need like Jax. Jax arrived on a recent RezDawg transport with three broken legs and a bullet in his belly. His December 27 surgery was a success and we saved his most injured leg! He has a long hard road ahead of him but he's in the right place (RezDawg Foster Home) with the right people (Melissa and Kevin Kovach - fosters extraordinaire) until he can live the rescued life. Please help us help Jax and animals like him with a generous one-time donation to RezDawg Rescue. Or make a recurring donation so we can help Jax and build our Medical Fund in preparation for the next Jax who will inevitably arrive soon... Like us on Facebook to follow Jax's progress...and thank you for all you do for RezDawg Rescue!
