Can you rescue one of these dogs?

This is a little “behind the scenes” look at what Colorado rescues and shelters try so hard to help with. Countless pleas for help unfortunately go unanswered but we do our best to try and save as many as we can. – Sandra Risler, Animal House Rescue, Fort Collins, CO

In an effort to try and save a life, I am contacting everyone in hope of help with rescue.  Please see the following list in hopes that someone will have space or a foster available. If you can help, please contact LAMAR ASAP. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

These dogs are scheduled for euthanasia due to space.
