Colorado Herding Dog Rescue

A nonprofit organization

100% complete

$2,500 Goal

Nonprofit 501(c)(3) in Denver, Colorado dedicated to providing homes for Australian Shepherds, Border Collies and other herding breeds. Newly formed in 2022, the three founders of CHDR have a combined experience of 45+ years in rescue and have saved over 700 dogs.


The goal of Colorado Herding Dog Rescue is to help place Australian Shepherds, Border Collies and other herding breeds in loving, permanent homes. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who put our hearts, souls and time into finding forever homes for these intelligent and loyal working breeds.

We are completely foster-based, meaning all of our dogs stay in one of our volunteer's home until a forever home is found. Colorado Herding Dog Rescue fosters and places dogs specifically in the state of Colorado. We have relationships with a number of shelters, and rescue dogs from Kansas, Arkansas, Texas and New Mexico. We also work with local shelters in Colorado.
