Colorado Canine Rescue


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.



The Wrangler has kindly chosen us as beneficiaries of three of their Beer Bust Fundraisers this year on:

February 11th

June 17th

October 28th

We will need at least 30 volunteers at each event from 3:15pm-8:00pm.  The Beer Bust event is at The Wrangler 3090 Downing St, Denver, CO 80205. It is a very social and fast-paced event and it is A LOT of fun! Most of the volunteers will walk around and pour beer while the others are manning the taps to refill empty pitchers. We have had a blast at every event and the patrons couldn’t be more appreciative.  So come help us pour some beer and help support the dogs! Please contact us if you are able to volunteer on any of those days. Hope to see you there!

Please keep our dogs in mind on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 5, 2017, and throughout the year!!
