Summit Dog Rescue - For Dogs with Altitude
Based in Boulder, Colorado our mission is to save dogs from kill shelters. We tend to focus on "mountain dogs" – dogs who thrive at elevation and are as comfortable hiking above treeline as playing in a creek. Dogs with altitude! Summit Dog Rescue, Boulder, Colorado, is a dog rescue dedicated to a mindful, hands-on, thorough approach to rescuing great dogs (and some cats) and adopting them into exceptional fur-ever homes.
Our goal is not to do high volume dogs adoptions, but rather to rescue great dogs and find them incredibly well matched, loving, committed forever homes. Our process can be long and thorough , so we discourage people who are in "acquire" mode from applying, as those people become frustrated and usually adopt elsewhere before they are even through the whole process. We also do not approve everyone who adopts, even though we so appreciate that they want to adopt, not everyone is a suitable home for one of our dogs. We carefully screen our adoptive homes and look for people dedicated to continued education, positive reinforcement/force free training and good health care.
Although we are based in Boulder we have volunteers all over Colorado – Fort Collins, Denver, Vail, and Steamboat Springs and more. We update our Facebook page daily, so please LIKE US for our latest news.
We can ALWAYS use more volunteers. If you'd like to get involved, download and fill out our volunteer application and email it back to us.
