Almost 9 years ago I got a wild idea to open an animal shelter. After being involved in rescue work over the years I saw the need to provide more adoption opportunities to homeless animals in need. At the time I had just wrapped up a hundred animal rescue effort from Hurricane Katrina and was working with a national organization as a Training Partner. Rubia and Dewey (pictured in my profile) were my current foster dogs for this program. They were victims of a hoarding situation and a drug bust. They had never been in a home before and taught me more than I could ever imagine about the adaptability and love that the animals around us have to offer.
Through my experience with them I realized that an adoption guarantee shelter was just what Northern Colorado needed. After much talk myself and Animal House co-founder Sandra Risler set out to find a place for dogs in need to discover their second chance at.
Nine years later we've united nearly 5,000 dogs (as well as several cats and guinea pigs) with their forever homes. Some of these critters come to us and are adopted in a what seems like a matter of minutes. Others need a little more time and TLC before finding their new family. Animal House provides them with this. Now we want your help to save more!
