What Is Online Sign-up?

This is the Sign-up Button

Due to the Colorado Stay at Home orders, we will not be having an in person adoption event on Saturday. 

We will be having a virtual adoption process. Please see how to adopt for all of the details.

Our online sign-up is a fundraiser for Colorado Puppy Rescue.


Online sign-up will be available at 10:00 pm on the night before adoption day for a $5 donation

This list will only be available for the first 40 people who signup. The list will be closed after 40 people have signed up.

About Our List

One person per family can sign-up. The list is first come/ first served to ensure the first family in line sees the puppy of their choice first. As many as six families can meet with their puppy at a time. In the past, potential adopters could arrive as early as 6 am, but now online sign-ups are available to make the experience less stressful, less time consuming, and overall, more convenient.

About Online Sign-up

Online sign-up is simply an easy way to add your name to the list from home, your kid's soccer game, the coffee shop, etc. Online sign-up does not guarantee or hold a puppy. The first good, properly qualified prospective family on the list will be able to adopt the puppy. Online sign-up will be available starting at 10:00 PM on night before the day of the adoption event until 30 minutes before the event begins, then it transitions to in person sign-up at The Hopeful Hound adoption center. Don't miss your turn! You must be present at The Hopeful Hound when your name is called at the event start time (see above). To assure only interested parties are signing-up, a $5.00 donation is required for the early signup list. This donation will go to expenses accrued on puppy care (ie.: Vet Certifications, Food, Shots, etc.). Online sign-up is NOT required to adopt a CPR puppy. Adopters are welcome to arrive at the adoption center 30 minutes before the adoption event begins to sign-up at no charge. You only need to sign-up ONCE per adoption event.

How To Sign-up?

Click the PayPal button on the top of this page to initiate the online sign-up. PayPal will prompt you through their process so that we can collect your donation. After that, your sign-up is complete. Just be sure to arrive at The Hopeful Hound adoption center by the event start time (see above) so you don't miss your turn. Note: You do not have to have a PayPal account, you can use any major credit card.

Why Sign-up Online?

Some breeds are very popular, so online signup is suggested if you see the perfect puppy for your home.

Will This Put A Hold On The Puppy I Want?

No. Colorado Puppy Rescue does not take requests. Due to our limited foster homes, we cannot hold puppies for anyone, nor can we board puppies after they are adopted. We do not ship out of state. You must be 21 years or older to adopt from Colorado Puppy Rescue.
