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.

The crucible that is the Rez produces strong, smart and loving dogs. Generation after generation of RezDawgs face starvation, abuse and plain old bad luck. But nature provides and when a Rez dog faces a problem, they overcome adversity by depending on ancestral knowledge passed down by true survivors. Good mamas explain, “when you’re hungry, bees are an option but leave the wasps alone.” Rez dogs know which grasses sooth an upset tummy and how ...

When we started this blog, we promised we’d “toss you over our shoulder and take you on a tour of Rez Rescue.” The mission is simple: to share information about what we do, how we do it, and introduce you to the amazing people who make it all happen. Carol Kuzdek, President of Whole Pets in Boulder, CO, is one of those people. She’s a RezDawg donor, sponsors adoption events, fosters cats (recently added puppies to ...

Rescue requires a higher level of customer service than retail, banking or the restaurant business. In simple terms, rescues need to maintain a higher attention to detail because our clients are also our bosses – and because we have so many of them. We work for the dogs/cats we rescue and owe them the best possible experience. We're directly responsible for making sure our volunteers have a great time while making the world a better place. ...
- Gearing Up for Puppy and Kitten Season by Steven SableMarch 6, 20177
RezDawg is gearing up for puppy and kitten season and the only limiting factor on how many Rez Dogs and Rez Cats we can save is the number of spaces available in our foster network – now over 100 strong (and growing.) If we want to rescue more Rez animals in 2017 than we did in 2016 (and we do,) we need more foster homes for both dogs and cats. We hope this basic information ...
- Cat People by Steven SableJanuary 7, 20174
In conclusion: Puma found her forever people (in a one-pet household), endorphins were released and rescue is easier and more rewarding than you think. … There is irony in being the de facto cat lady for a dog rescue. It loosens a bit when you consider that Jayma has/does rescue dogs and RezDawg Rescue has saved thousands of cats from an “uncertain fate.” The fact remains: Jayma is an animal person. This matters to Puma. It matters ...
