Working towards the day when every pet has a loving home. Animal Rescue of the Rockies pulls homeless dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters and places them in loving foster homes until their forever homes are found. We promote spaying and neutering to reduce pet overpopulation and encourage quality relationships between pets and their people through behavior resources and training.
Welcome to Animal Rescue of the Rockies!
Relay for Rescue 2020
Denver | Saturday, July 11, 2020
Multiple amazing, local animal welfare organizations are joining forces and hitting the streets of downtown Denver for the 4th Annual RELAY FOR RESCUE! Join in on the fun as we build awareness, attract local supporters, and raise money for each individual cause. Not only will you visit multiple awesome venues, but you will also compete for the coveted grand prize while doing a relay race and scavenger hunt. Tasks in the relay include a balloon hop, locked elbows, newspaper press, and more. All for the animals!
