Tuesday is Colorado Gives Day!

Colorado Gives Day Tuesday, December 8th


The Retriever Rescue of Colorado is the organization that Dan and I got Playa from as a puppy. They are an amazing organization that does great work. Without them we wouldn’t have our girl. They were able to rescue Playa’s mom and get the puppies to loving and caring homes.

Anne-Skinner-main-pic-238x300

Their mission statement: Believing that all Retrievers deserve a safe, loving home, the mission of Retriever Rescue of Colorado is to rescue abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted retrievers and to promote public education on animal-related issues.

Dan and I are volunteers that do home visits for any Summit County potential adoptions. Again we can not recommend this rescue enough. Please consider them tomorrow, Tuesday December 8th on Colorado Gives Day!

Thanks!
