Thank you for choosing to adopt! We are delighted to assist you in finding the perfect forever friend.

Colorado Animal Rescue strives to make every adoption a match for life. To assure that the animal you wish to adopt is well suited for you, your home, and lifestyle, and is placed in an environment that is compatible with their needs, we ask that you complete our adoption survey. The adoption surveys are specific to dogs/puppies, and cats/kittens. We keep completed applications on file for a period of time, but we may ask you to complete a new survey if it has been a while since your prior inquiry.

C.A.R.E. Adoption Process

Thank you for considering Colorado Animal Rescue Shelter for your next animal companion! C.A.R.E. has many dogs and cats looking for forever homes. Our process carefully matches companion pets to the best possible home. We strive for 100% placement of adoptable animals with a knowledgable staff to assist you with your new pet.

Our cat/kitten adoption fee is $100 and includes: spay/neuter surgery, Feline Distemper vaccine, Feline Rabies vaccine, basic de-worming, testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV)and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), a micro-chip implant, as well as medical and behavorial evaluations.

Our dog/puppy adoption fee is $150 and includes: spay/neuter surgery, Distemper combo vaccine, Canine Rabies vaccine, basic de-worming, a micro-chip implant, as well as medical and behavorial evaluations.

The application can take 24 hours to process, however we often times can process a same day adoption. We will review the application and make sure it is a good fit for the animal and the home.

You may fill out an application here at the shelter or via our online form.


Help the animals in our care by donating to the shelter! Your gift, no matter how big or small, will improve the lives of homeless & abandoned animals within our community and beyond. Thanks so much for your support!
