I have had the privilege of fostering with Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue and they have proved themselves to be the best in class. They have the animals best interest in mind, they care deeply about the fosters, the adopters, and all volunteers and supporters. They are extremely knowledgeable and have a streamlined and effective process in place. I would 100% recommend them if you are interested in fostering, adopting, volunteering or donating to this rescue. I only have pawsitive things to say about PRAR!

I looked for over a year for that special pup. After doing some research, going to a few of PRAR's adoption events and meeting the team of people and some fosters I was hooked. I ended up adopting my Pippa March 14 2020, just before covid! The process was thorough but easy, something I greatly appreciated. They genuinely love and care for each little soul that comes through their doors. I love the fact that after you adopt, you are family. I have been able to watch her siblings grow and compare notes. There is a special place in Heaven for Krissy and her team. They take some of the worst cases and go so far above and beyond giving each a piece of their heart! Even in the midst of tragedy, sadness, loss. Krissy and her team find strength and courage and continue to fight for those that can't. I'm simply astounded at what they accomplish!! THANK YOU PRAR for all you do, and for my darling, best friend. She has brought so much love and Joy, I can't imagine life without her!

Over the last 3 years we have adopted 2 dogs from PRAR, Molly and Tater. I'm an animal lover (vegetarian) and am extremely selective about who I will support. There are many rescues around. I've adopted dogs years ago from shelters/ rescues. I simply can't underscore enough the level of quality that is maintained by PRAR. It took almost three weeks to complete our first adoption. The background check, the references needing to be contacted, the home visit, the initial visit at the foster home… every single potential step is taken by PRAR to verify these dogs find their furever homes in HIGH quality environments. Susan and I donate financially, donate time and donate our Etsy business to fundraisers for this amazing and dedicated rescue. We have personally witnessed more money than would be needed for a small home down payment be spent to save an amazing dog, many of sleepless nights spent nursing babies, caring for Parvovirus inflicted animals and the most selfless actions of constantly and continually putting these four legged angels first. We simply could never do justice in words to the value that two of these rescues have brought to our lives.
While the care, treatment and placement of these animals is always kept first above all else, the reality is PRAR goes above and beyond any rescue I've ever seen. Every adoptee is spayed or neutered, microchipped, brought up to date on shots and ensured healthy and happy before they are ever even available for adoption.
PRAR rescues and saves dogs from all over the region, bringing in dogs from neighboring states and providing them the bestest shot they could ever have at a happily ever after.
There simply isn't a better rescue out there and we will forever be clients and supporters in each and every way we can.

I have rescued two gorgeous, sweet shepherd mix dogs from Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue. Both of my girls were within 30 minutes of being euthanized - and one of them was pregnant! But Krissy and her team/network saved them and brought them to Colorado for a second chance at life! My mama dog, after receiving medical treatment, proper nutrition and care with her amazing foster family, delivered ten healthy, beautiful puppies. All ten are now in their furever homes, too. My other dog was a street dog who had just delivered a litter of puppies, and was separated from them. She was heartworm positive and emaciated when she was pulled from a shelter. PRAR arranged for 2 fosters in another state, and had 18 (yes, 18!) people drive 100 miles each to get her here for safe harbor and treatment. She stayed with her foster dad for several months undergoing expensive, painful heartworm treatment, and being nursed back to health. Who goes to such lengths for an animal? PRAR does! Both of my girls have my heart, and so does PRAR. Our family is complete with our girls, and they bring us joy every day! Before getting involved with PRAR through a friend, I had no idea what rescue was about, Now, I know so much more about the intense effort that goes on behind the scenes to save these animals...


Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and give temporary housing to at-risk animals. PRAR takes in a lot of the more severe, often very expensive medical cases that other organizations may not have the resources to care for. We provide these animals with urgent, life-saving medical care, and we do not euthanize because of the costs involved with saving these special cases. We lovingly nurse these animals back to health, socialize them and properly evaluate them to determine the best home environment for the individual animal. PRAR then facilitates finding quality forever homes and ultimately a better life for both the abandoned, stray, abused, and injured companion animals that we serve. Pawsitive Restorations helps to limit the overpopulation of these animals through diligent community education and stringent spay/neuter regimens. It is our ultimate goal to raise the funding needed to open a state of the art, all-inclusive rescue facility unlike anything anyone has experienced before; a comfortable, warm, safe "home" for the homeless, and a haven for the hopeless.

Background Statement

They come to us in so many ways: abused, abandoned, injured, sick, pregnant, unwanted, and unloved. Since 2016, Pawsitive Restorations has been providing urgent relocation, life-saving medical care, safe refuge, spay/neuter, vaccinations, training, love, and support for thousands of companion animals who are at-risk for euthanasia in underfunded shelters… but we can’t do it alone. Donations from our compassionate community are critically needed to ensure that our successful program can continue to offer a much needed second chance to those most in need.
