Our Story

Our story began in 1995, when two sisters began volunteering at a local humane society as foster parents. Thousands of puppy pads later, we are still at it! From pregnant moms and family sets to abandoned babies in need of extra attention, we provide a unique rescue environment designed to feel more like a home than a shelter. We are proud to partner and provide support to other non-profits and share the workload of saving animals from the most dire of situations to finding them their perfect forever homes.

“Only people who work with sick animals understand the immense joy of finally seeing a healthy puppy stool”.
Nicole Newby, Co-Founder of Animal Aid of Colorado Inc

“To succeed in the animal rescue world: Count the wins, Grieve the lost, and Learn to beg.”

County Line Vet

Our goal is to help fight the animal overpopulation problem by providing affordable sterilization procedures. The people of Colorado have a tremendous love for animals, which means we see a lot of rescue animals coming from surrounding states to find homes. To help these animals find homes as soon as possible, means being spayed/neutered.  Many times they come with significant dental disease that needs to be addressed as well.
