Colorado Canine Rescue

CCR is in the process of reorganizing their Board and Coordinator positions.
We are not accepting new Foster Homes of Volunteers at this time.  Please check back with us soon!

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.




Join CCR at Camp Bow Wow Lodo on Monday, August 1, 2016 to celebrate the Universal Shelter Dog Birthday!!  

Most shelter and rescue pups’ true birthdays are unknown – August 1st has been designated as the universal birthday of shelter dogs! Let’s give these pups the celebration they deserve – join our paw-ty at Camp!

  • Bring your pups to camp on August 1st for a $19 day of Day Camp! The pups will enjoy a day of play, and then from 4-7pm, we will be having a paw-ty to celebrate! We’ll be selling 5 packs of Day Camp for $100, have adoptable pets from Colorado Canine Rescue, and party snacks for you and your furry friend!
