Believing that all Retrievers deserve a safe, loving home, the mission of Retriever Rescue of Colorado is to rescue abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted retrievers and to promote public education on animal-related issues. Rescued breeds will include Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Curly Coated Retrievers, Flat Coated Retrievers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.
All of our dogs are fostered prior to adoption. Our organization prides itself on providing safe and promising second chances to these dogs while they await their new homes. Our foster homes allow for social development and many times direction for learning basic commands, housebreaking and exposure to children, cats, and other dogs.
Depression rates of puppies and dogs kept for long periods of time in a shelter rapidly increase with each day as they wait for a new home. Foster homing can assist in alleviating unnecessary stress for some of our dogs who have come to us under serious circumstances.
History of RROC
"It all began with a passion to educate and help the animals" - RROC founders
RROC began in 2006 with only a few volunteers on hand to spearhead the effort to create an incredible rescue organization. The expectation that RROC would achieve saving around 30 dogs was far exceeded within the first year of operation and today proudly touts more than 1100 retrievers saved and adopted as of 2010.
