Adult Volunteers

Fostering is a great way to have a temporary 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. Some fosters choose to care for special needs puppies and may need to keep their pups for longer.


Colorado Puppy Rescue provides everything you need to take care of our puppies including a crate, food, toys and healthcare. For fosters who have served five or more times, we offer training classes in common puppy behaviors and health. Applicants are required to attend a foster orientation and have their home inspected prior to fostering their first puppy.

CPR has a wide range of opportunities for adult volunteers (over 18 years old) including:

  • Helping at our Wednesday puppy intakes,

  • Helping at Saturday and mid-week adoption events,
