Volunteer and Foster Opportunities
Colorado Puppy Rescue has several volunteer opportunities.
We need foster homes, along with intake and event volunteers!
We also have a need for crafty volunteers!
Become a foster home
Fostering is a great way to have a temporary or trial puppy. It's perfect for seniors, working/traveling adults, and families deciding if a puppy is the right pet for their family.
Foster families usually pick up puppies on Wednesday evenings and care for them for a minimum of three nights or as long as one week.
Perks of fostering with us:
We provide you with everything necessary to care for our puppies: like a crate, food, toys, and healthcare.
The best perk of all when fostering with us is that if you become really attached to a puppy while taking care of it, you can adopt the pup, as long as you follow the protocols we have in place.
Before you start fostering your first puppy, you'll need to attend an orientation and have your home checked.
To be successful you should:
Live within a 45-minute drive or a reachable distance of our adoption center.
10021 E Iliff Ave Aurora, CO 80247
Be a household decision-maker.
Provide a secure, clean living environment with electricity, running water, and climate control for the puppies while they're with you.
What you can expect from us:
1. Receive orientation instructions within 24 hours after applying.
2. Get an 'active' email and invite to our foster community within 24 hours of finishing the orientation and quiz.
3. Complete your home inspection and start saving the puppies, young and old!
If you have extra love to give, we have pups in immediate need.
No Court Ordered Community Service Applicants Accepted.
Must be 18+ years old.
Helping during our Wednesday evening puppy intakes!
You get a lot of hands-on time with the pups.
You can choose from jobs such as bathing, feeding and cleaning up after them, as well as helping foster families get their supplies and the pups to their car!
*This can be a very dirty day because even with potty stops they've been in a car for the majority of the day*
Adoption Event Volunteers
Helping during Adoptions Events on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings.
During events you'll help set up and get the pups ready for their big day!
This includes helping them stay busy when it's not their turn to meet a family.
After the event you'll help break down and get pups ready to go to their fosters.
At Home Volunteers
Are you crafty but can't make it to events?
Some of our crafty volunteer needs include:
making toys for the pups, crocheting/knitting sweaters, making "adopt me" bandanas, and editing photos!
We'd love to have you help with these things!
