How to Adopt

Who Can Adopt?

  • Adopters must be 21 years of age or older.

  • CPR reserves the right to refuse an adoption for any reason. Unfortunately, if you sign up on the Weekly Sign-Up List but did not complete the Adoption Application, we will not be able to serve you at this time.

How to Adopt
  1. Complete the adoption application here: [link]
    - you should hear from us within 24 hours
    - an approved application stays on file for 6 months
    - if your application is declined, we will not be able to adopt to you at this time

  2. Sign up for an adoption event: [link]
    - sign-ups are open from 2pm-8pm the day before the event
    - if you missed the sign-up window, you can still walk-in for the event as long as you have an application on file

  3. Attend the event! 
    - Saturday events are from 9:30am-1pm
    - Tuesday events are from 6pm-7pm
    - always check the web site for the date of the next event; we do occasionally take a week off and Tuesday events are only as-needed
     

Extra details on adoptions
  • In an attempt to make adoption as fair as possible, we open our Weekly Sign-Up List the day prior to the adoption event from 2pm-8pm MST.
  • To sign up on the list to potentially adopt, you will donate $5 via a PayPal link. 
  • We are holding in-person adoption events, please see the home page for the next adoption event date and time. We will call your name and you will be able to come meet a puppy that you are interested in. If you are not there when we call your name we will move to next in line. If all goes well please be prepared to take your puppy home that dayOnly people that will be living with the puppy can come.  In order to continue holding in-person adoption events we are now requiring masks for everyone while inside.
  • The weekly sign-up list will be randomized and we will create a "virtual line". Potential adopters will have a chance to adopt based on that randomized list. Duplicate entries are removed. 
  • Signing up on the Weekly Sign-Up List does not guarantee that we have a puppy for you that week or that you will get the puppy you want!
  • The $5 fee is a donation to Colorado Puppy Rescue and allows us to take in animals who might need more extensive medical care.
  • Please visit our Home Page to find out when the next event will take place.
  • Adoption applications stay in our system for 6 months from the time of completion. You must submit the application prior to signing up on the Weekly Sign-Up List. Adoption Applications will be reviewed and approved or rejected prior to the adoption event. CPR reserves the right to refuse an adoption for any reason at any time. Unfortunately, if you sign up on the Weekly Sign-Up List but did not complete the Adoption Application, we will not be able to serve you at this time.
 
  • Please watch the adoption video before we contact you (the link will be emailed to you). If you watch the video and decide that now is not the time for you, please email info@coloradopuppy.org with the subject line REMOVE [your name] and we will take you off the list.
  • If you missed the Online Sign Up Window but are interested in one of the available puppies please fill out this Virtual Walk-Up List and come on in. This list will be checked on on the day of the adoption event until 1 hour before closing. We will only respond to submissions during that time frame. You must already have an accepted application and names will be put in the order they are received after the weekly Online Signup list has been completed.
Adoption Day Process
  • Doors open on the date and time listed on the home page

  • If you are not there when we call your name we will move to next in line.

  • You will be able to meet an available puppy of your choice and we will answer any questions you may still have about the contract (NOTE the video will answer the majority of your questions). We will then have you sign the contract and pay the adoption fee.

  • After the paperwork is complete you will be able to go home with your puppy.

  • If you want to prepare - our puppies are currently eating Nature's Domain Puppy Food found at Costco, Amazon, & Instacart
