What is our plan?
Heart 'N Mind Paw Rescue will focus on finding foster and forever homes for pets on euthanization lists, as well as others in need of homes, such as abused and neglected animals, strays, and other surrenders. Instead of housing pets in a shelter-like environment, we plan to mostly place them with fosters until adoption.
Will we have a shelter?
Yes and no. Most pets rescued through or organization will go straight to an approved foster or adoptive family. However, in the event that one is not available, we may temporarily house some animals in an approved and licensed residential location.
What are some ways to help?
If you'd like to help us get started, you can do one or more of the following: donate funds via the PayPal donation button the right sidebar or share this link to spread the word.
Where are we located?
Currently, we are located in Aurora, Colorado but network animals from around the United States. We are working on moving to another location, where we will open our animal rescue facility when we can save (and raise) enough funds. If that changes, we will post an update.
When are we opening?
We will open when we have raised enough funds via donations as well as our own efforts -- and when we are properly licensed in the location of operation.
What are the funds for?
The funds will be used for transportation to rescue animals, vet bills, food, pet supplies, animal housing fees, and the multitude of other supplies and resources necessary for the proper care and rescue of animals.
What types of animals will we save?
Once we are closer to the opening date and we have been appropriately licensed, we will know the exact types of animals we can work with. The goal is to help dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, fish, small reptiles, and more. We may increase or decrease that list, depending on many factors and will know more at a later date.
What happens to the funds if we never open?
We fully plan on following through with our plans. However, in the unfortunate event that we are unable to open this organization, all funds raised will be donated to other rescues and organizations who help homeless pets and we will update this blog and site with information on those rescues and organizations.
