Colorado Animal Rescue (C.A.R.E.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter serving Colorado's Garfield County. Our mission is to provide safety and care for homeless and abandoned animals and education for the pet-owning public. We make every effort to place animals in loving homes, to encourage population control and to promote responsible pet ownership.
Colorado Animal Rescue places hundreds of homeless animals into loving homes each year. Our adoption process carefully matches companion pets to the best possible home. We strive for 100% placement of adoptable animals with a knowledgeable staff to assist you with your new pet.
C.A.R.E. has recognized the community's needs by implementing programs in the last fourteen years that have made the shelter a valuable resource in the Roaring Fork Valley. The City of Glenwood Springs , The Town of New Castle, The Town of Basalt and Garfield County have all entered into agreements with C.A.R.E. to safely shelter and hold animals brought in by animal control officers. Public programs have become highly visible, particularly those offering spay/neuter assistance and coordinating information on lost and found animals (in a collaborative effort with these local animal control organizations).
