Based in Boulder, Colorado, our mission is to save dogs from kill shelters and to educate the general public about the plight of homeless dogs, the critical importance of spay/neuter and the revolutionary understanding in canine cognition and how this applies to our family pets.
Summit Dog Rescue, Boulder, Colorado, is a 501c3 rescue dedicated to a mindful, holistic, thorough approach to rescuing great dogs (and an occasional kitty) and adopting them into exceptional fur-ever homes.
We tend to focus on "mountain dogs" - dogs that thrive at elevation and are just as happy hiking in lodgepole forests as swimming in creeks. We call them, "Dogs With Altitude!"
Our goal is NOT high volume dog adoptions, but rather to rescue great dogs and find them incredibly well matched, loving, committed forever homes.
We focus on our dogs and adopters learning basic life skills, using only force free/positive-reinforcement training.
