About Us

Photographs of volunteers at Lifeline Puppy Rescue

Since 1993, Lifeline Puppy Rescue has saved 40,000 puppies in the west and midwestern United States from euthanasia at city and county kill shelters. We are a 501(c)3 organization and the largest and longest running facility of our kind in Colorado, with many Lifeline alumni dogs in your neighborhood!  We are an all-breed rescue which accepts puppies and pregnant moms from 5 states and a network of 33 shelters and affiliated rescue organizations. We vet our puppies, treat for anything they may be suffering from, and once healthy, we place them for adoption to find a permanent home. Lifeline Puppy Rescue was founded as a no-kill shelter to save the lives of puppies that would otherwise have to be put down because of overpopulation problems in kill shelters. To date we have volunteers and animal welfare organizations in multiple states which help to transport puppies in danger, and unwanted dogs across the Rocky Mountain region, Kansas, Texas and New Mexico. New puppies are brought in every Tuesday, placed in foster homes when possible and cared for until the right family comes along. Lifeline Puppy Rescue is a true and 100 percent no-kill shelter. We keep every puppy until they find a home. Our vision is to create a world where every puppy has the safety of home and every family has the love of a puppy.

Our mission:

Rescue and shelter puppies, build families, and promote responsible pet ownership.

We are guided by the values that define us, including:

  • Excellence
  • Dedication
  • Compassion
  • Integrity
