Adopting a Dog from the Dog Rescue

Thank you for considering adopting a rescue dog! This will save two dogs – the dog you adopt, and another pup by opening a spot at our dog shelter! San Nicola Dog Rescue is a volunteer-based PACFA licensed 501(c)-3 non-profit foundation.

We rescue dogs from Colorado and surrounding states and provide food, shelter and care until we find permanent homes. We place rescue dogs in Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Vail, Greeley and other Colorado towns.

We have a brick-and-mortar dog shelter with the location east of Denver, Colorado and in Westminster, Colorado. Because of the distance we can bring the dog that you are adopting to your place.

Our Sponsors

We appreciate support of our generous sponsors Dr. Mohapp, Shannon, Julie and all the wonderful staff of Dr. Miller with Danah, Lena, Richard Andersen, Kathy and Bill, Iris, Mark, Debbie, Danielle, Mary and Joe, Stacey, Rita, Friends of Carthage Panola County Pound , Vickie, Gail, and everyone else who helped the rescue!

Special thanks to Pearl who helps to save many dogs in the honor of her beloved daughter Corissa.

In the Memory of sweet angel Peanut
  BIG THANKS to our long-time sponsors Kathy and Bill Busch for opening their home to little chi Peanut. Only in her last years she finally got care, comfort and love thanks to Kathy and Bill. Before that she spent years locked outside in a 5x5 pen.
Kathy and Bill helped and keep helping the rescue tremendously with adoptions, donations and bags of food during recent shortages. Dear friends, your kindness is so appreciated!

They asked: "Can't You look down on Earth and see what's going on?" There was no answer...
The answer came years later (or was it decades?): "Well... do something about it..."
