National Adoption Week Wrapup

Tara the cat

It is with delighted happiness that we report our Petsmart sponsored National Adoption Week was a success. In addition to adopting out all but 5 of the dogs we had available at the event, we also managed to find a forever home for Tara, our current longest resident rescue. Tara scored a new mommy with no other pets, and was immediately on her lap taking biscuits as if she had known they would connect all along, and had simply been waiting for her human to find the location. We want to thank Petsmart, our volunteers, our fosters, and especially the new adopters for thinking rescue as we head into the holiday season.

Welcome to Denver, Pitties!

Congrats to Denver for Repealing its Breed Ban Legislation!

We are so happy and thrilled to announce that Denver citizens have finally overturned one of the strictest breed bans in the country, and now pit bulls and terrier types are no longer illegal within city limits.

This means you will likely see an increase in the number of pits/pit mixes we take in as our fostering availability just greatly increased.

What it means for you: if you are looking at a pit or pit mix to adopt from us, we will still need to confirm that you do not having housing or HOA restrictions on the ban. Please have that information readily available when you submit your application. Although Denver will allow these dogs, it does not mean that every apartment complex or insurance carrier will be so generous, and we want what is best for everyone.

Additionally, if you have experience with the breed, please include that information in your application.

Again, congrats to Denver on this historical event!

Three Words That Are Easy to Say

DeeDee loves I and Love and You dog food!

It takes a village, and we are so proud and humble to be supported by ours. I and Love and You is a Boulder based pet food company that uses wholesome ingredients to keep pets well fed. When they heard about our attempts to keep Denver Animal Shelter and other municipal shelters free of animals of all ages, they stepped up and donated more than a pallet of their food to help us send home with fosters. Here, you can see one of the Denver shelter rescues, DeeDee, is ready for her dinner (and that she loves being fed ILY).

In times of crisis, we look for the helpers. This great company is one of our helpers, and we would encourage you to check out their awesome line of pet food and treats, and by helping support them, you also help support us!

Thanks to everyone as we work together.
