Mission

About RezDawg Rescue We relocate deserving dogs, puppies, cats and kittens from high-intake shelters and reservations in the Four Corners region of the US to forever homes in Colorado. We provide medical care, nurturing shelter through our foster program, networking and transfer to other no-kill rescue organizations and our own adoption events so that these animals can find forever homes. Simply, our mission is to save lives. Since our formation in 2012, and thanks to the outstanding help of our individual contributors, corporate sponsors, and hard-working volunteers, we've transported and relocated over 8,500 animals to partner organizations and helped families adopt over 3,200 dogs and cats. RezDawg Rescue, Inc is a nonprofit 501c3 animal welfare organization (EIN: 46-1412023).

Relocation and Rehoming Services

We relocate dogs and cats from high-intake shelters, animal control facilities, and reservations in the Four Corners area to animal rescue partners and forever homes in Colorado. We provide transportation to foster homes and other partner organizations, offer medical care and low/no cost spay and neuter services, manage a network of foster homes for temporary shelter, and run adoption events so that these animals can find forever homes.

Adults

Adopting an animal through RezDawg Rescue creates a positive impact in three ways: enriching your life by adding a loving new family member, saving a deserving cat or dog, and decreasing the homeless pet population in the southwestern US. We’ve heard many people say that adopting a RezDawg Rescue animal not only saves the animal’s life, but helps save their own. Also, your adoption fee assists more animals in finding their permanent homes, funds relocation and transportation, and provides emergency medical and spay/neuter services.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Rescuing dogs and cats from the Four Corners region of the US Southwest keeps our team busy! We coordinate with the Navajo and Zuni peoples to transport animals about every two weeks from Gallup, NM to the Front Range and Western Slope of Colorado.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We relocate dogs and cats from high-intake shelters, animal control facilities, and reservations in the Four Corners area to animal rescue partners and forever homes in Colorado.

We provide transportation to foster homes and other partner organizations, offer medical care and low/no cost spay and neuter services, manage a network of foster homes for temporary shelter, and run adoption events so that these animals can find forever homes.

We focus on four animal rescue services: Adoption, Relocation, Fostering, Spay/Neuter & Vaccination Services. Whether we are finding animals a temporary home, finding a forever home, or transporting to another rescue organization, we are always focusing on saving animal lives and educating communities on how best to deal with animals in need.

RezDawg Rescue saved over 1,400 dogs and cats in 2017 by making 59 transports up to Colorado, resulting in over 900 RezDawg Rescue adoptions. Since our inception in 2011, we've rescued over 6,800 animals and adopted out over 2,400.
