PawsCo is dedicated to reducing pet homelessness by keeping animals in their homes through partnering with the Food Bank of the Rockies for a year round Pet Food Drive, and serving as a partner to shelters and rescues to foster the most in-need animals - animals not thriving in a shelter.


"We had a great experience when we adopted our dog 7 months ago. Great communication from start to finish, from the initial phone call, to our meeting with the foster family. They truly care about the pets they looking to find homes for. We couldn't be happier with the new member of our family. Keep up the great work!" - Krista

"We got our dog from PawsCo in September, three months we're still impressed by the job they did. He, at 4 years old, is incredibly well-behaved and loving, it shows that they worked hard to train him. He can be left alone in the house without destroying things, he doesn't chew on things he's not supposed to, and he is appropriately protective of my wife. He's pretty friendly with guests and plays well with other dogs. The gals we met were nice and knowledgeable. It really shows that they put effort into their work. The price for adoption was $125, and if I had known how much happiness that would buy me, I'd have doubled down. If in the future we decide to add another dog, I will look at them first. I'd recommend PawsCo if you're in the market." - Jeff

"The team at PawsCo is incredibly friendly and efficient - I really enjoyed working with them.
The time was right to add a furry addition to my house, so I submitted an online application for a kitten that was recently listed as available for adoption. This was about 2 days before Christmas. I was contacted by one of their adoption coordinators not long after and by New Year's Day I was having a meet-and-greet with my potential kitty. Meet and greet went awesome and I signed the adoption papers that day. In less than a week I'd found my new buddy! The adoption cost ($75) covered neuter, vaccines, microchip and more. I felt great knowing I was rescuing a safe and healthy animal. His foster mom was fantastic as were all the PawsCo people I interacted with. Everyone was very helpful and responsive - it was an easy process and I would recommend them to anyone looking to adopt a pet." - Amy

"Working in animal welfare in Southern Colorado, I had the pleasure of working with PawsCo from an outside shelter stand point. They are well respected within the animal sector because of their attention to detail and a wide array of support they provide shelters as well as their fosters and adopters. They are ALL volunteer which means along with their full time jobs, they dedicate the time to these animals, fosters, and adopters. Some of their volunteers are certified volunteer, positive reinforcement animal trainers allowing ample resources for training while the animal is in foster care and even to adopters. Their foster homes are CHECKED which although is law, I have found many organizations do not do this. Why would you place an animal in a home with people you nothing about? That terrifies me! I definitely appreciate the process PawsCo has for their fosters. After moving to Northern Colorado, I wanted to continue to foster animals. I was faced with the decision of which of the hundreds of animal rescues I wanted to be associated with which can be a grueling process of elimination. Even though I am about an hour and half away from PawsCo's headquarters, I felt that the support both for the animals but for the fosters, outweighed the drive for adoptions, appointments and supplies. I have been fostering for PawsCo for about 6 months and couldn't be more thrilled with the kind hearted and like minded individuals I have met as a result." - Erin
