Mill Dog Rescue Network
The Mill Dog Rescue Network, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, exists for two sole purposes, to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home retired mill dogs and to educate the general public about the realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.
Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region
The mission of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is to prevent animal cruelty and neglect, and promote a responsible community where animals are inherently valued and owners are committed to their pets.
9 Lives Rescue
9 Lives Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which depends solely upon unpaid volunteers to operate. As we don't have a shelter, we keep our cats and dogs in foster homes until they are adopted. Thus, the number of cats and dogs we can rescue depends directly on the number of foster homes we have - the more people willing to foster, the more animals we can rescue. We are also a "no-kill" organization and will euthanize an animal only if its health is so poor that trying to keep it alive would be cruel to the animal. It is our objective to make every effort to place all animals that come into our care into appropriate loving homes.
All Breeds Rescue and Training
All Breed Rescue & Training is primarily a volunteer-run organization. We have several areas that we can use help with and can utilize any talent you might have. Our positions range from a small time commitment to larger responsibilities and everything in between. If you are looking to volunteer with ABRT, please contact us!
Some volunteer positions currently available. Please email if you are interested. Second Chance
