Some nonprofits in our community
  • San Juan Citizens Alliance
    We need your help to defend clean air, pure water & healthy lands in the San Juan Basin. As a regional member-based organization, we rely on individuals like you to support our work fighting dirty energy, protecting wild places, & preserving clean water here in Southwest CO and northwest NM.
  • Parker's Animal Rescue
    PAR makes great efforts to support the foster program and each foster family/dog individually. The foster program is very HIGH TOUCH and requires constant attention. The foster situation reduces stress on the animal and helps us match them to a home. Support for the program is, as always, ongoing!
  • For Pets' Sake Humane Society
    Our volunteers have been helping pets and the people who care about them for 37 years! We help pet owners with spay/neuter costs, emergency vet bills, and pet food. We help unwanted dogs and cats get ready for adoption. Our outdoor, stray and abandoned cat project helps these often neglected cats.
  • Southwest Center for Independence
    Give the gift of independence! One in five Americans becomes disabled or experiences a chronic condition that interferes with our ability to live the lives we want. Make a real impact on the lives of people with disabilities who want to be more independent and more included in their communities.
