Colorado Canine Rescue

Colorado Canine Rescue (CCR)  is a small group run entirely by volunteers in the Denver area. Our mission is to rescue dogs from the shelters that have been overlooked and have run out of time. We are not breed specific and will take dogs into our program depending on the availability of our foster homes. We consider all or most of the dogs we take in “mutts.”  They are often strays from regional shelters, so we have little to no history on them.  Because of the lack of history, we have to make educated guesses as to their breeds and ages. We have no central location. Our dogs stay with loving foster homes while they receive the medical and the behavioral care they need. Our goal is to find an adoptive family whose needs and lifestyle perfectly match those of our dogs’ to ensure that it is a permanent, loving home.

About Us

Colorado Canine Rescue, CCR, was founded by Amy Taylor in 2008. She and three other friends and family formed CCR’s board and started building this small dog rescue. CCR was incorporated on August 8, 2008 and received its 501c3 tax exempt status in January of 2009.  CCR’s EIN tax ID number is:  26-3226573.

CCR has no central facility. All dogs live in foster homes while they are cared for and wait for their forever home to find them.

As of 2019, we have rescued over 1300 dogs that were “next-in-line” at the shelters and or relinquished from their owners. We continue to grow as resources become available, but this is done slowly to ensure that each dog gets the individual attention it needs, and receives the appropriate care and best possible placement in it’s forever home.

Contact Us

We are a SMALL rescue and have limited availability. We do not take in dogs with known human or dog aggression issues as there are lots of dogs needing rescued with no aggression. Please see the link below for help rehoming a dog.
