Mission

Lisa Parker's Puppies strives to rescue, foster and find permanent loving homes for abandoned dogs and puppies in La Plata County and the rural Four Corners. The overriding principals of the organization are 1) to educate the public on the importance of spay and neutering, and 2) educate pet owners on the proper stewardship and teaching of animals.
In addition, LPP focuses on making proper matches rather than pushing a dog into a home that may not be right which can result in disastrous consequences. LPP also provides post adoption support with classes included with the adoption fee that help bridge the gap between dog and human communication through working with an animal behaviorist.

Notes from the nonprofit

Lisa Parker's Puppies (LPP) is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Lisa Parker is a Durango, CO native who has been rescuing dogs in remote areas of the Four Corners for more than twenty years. Lisa, with the support of her husband, Eric, officially launched LPP in the spring of 2014 after taking in a litter of 6 day old bottle-feeding puppies. Since that day, LPP has developed a diverse and growing team of foster homes and volunteers who, along with community partners, to create a network of opportunity for dogs in need. LPP also works closely with local and regional humane societies, Dogster spay and neuter program and similar organizations to rescue, transport, care for and re-home dogs and puppies in need in the surrounding areas.

Foster to Adoption

The uniqueness of this program is in the fostering of puppies and dogs. The foster families provide the added benefit of observing puppies for medical and behavioral issues, and socialize them with their own dogs, cats and young family members. The foster families are required to crate train puppies prior to them becoming “adoption candidates,” so the puppy’s new family is one step ahead of the game toward integration into their new home. The foster arrangement reduces stress and provides the ability to more realistically assess the personality of the puppy, and provide a better matching of puppy to family.
Frequently puppies in this program are rescued out of difficult living conditions, and require medical care. Lisa Parker’s Puppies receives support from a local veterinarian, Aspen Tree Animal Caring Center, in order to provide a healthy puppy to their new owners. Lisa Parker, along with the support of foster families and behavioral professionals, Stacked Rock Kennels, Kimberly Kincaid, provide support for medical and behavioral rehabilitation. Since beginning work in 2014, LPP has placed over 300 animals within our program and transferred over 100 more to the safety of other rescues.
