Please understand we do this for the dogs. We work very hard to insure they will have forever and loving homes for fifteen years or more and the process can take some time. Some groups take three hours or more to process so please plan accordingly.


If you are interested in an ADULT dog we ask that you email us right away at rmpradoptions@gmail.com and place the dogs NAME in the subject line. One of our RMPR adoption counselors will contact you  about that adult dog and ask you to fill out an application. One of RMPR adoptions counselors will call or email you if we find your application to be a fit for the adult.

We will ask that you attend one of our adoption events. On occasion we will ask for a home interview prior to adoption.

 


  • Each group we interview takes time. You can plan on being with us for upwards of 3 hours from start to finish so please plan accordingly.

 

  • We interview in groups of 8 to 10 then we have controlled visitations  with up to three of our animals. At that time if available our fosters will answer your questions.

 

  • After we have interviewed and we have had visitations with everyone in a group we then award adoptions, and we then process your adoptions giving you all of the information on each animal including all shot records and dates due. If altered we will give all information provided by the Vet of record.

 

  • We continue with groups in succession until our animals are adopted or until we are at our end time for our event.


MANY Folks ask if their adult dog can meet our puppies. The answer is NO, our puppies while up to date on all shots are young and still in need of vaccines. If you have questions as to whether your adult dog can handle having a puppy in its space we ask that you please email us to consult prior to the adoption event. If you wish to have your adult dog meet one of our adult dogs we are glad to have you bring your dog to the store and we will have a volunteer do a behavior walk and assessment with you!

LOOKING TO REHOME A DOG?
RMPR does not accept relinquished animals from the public. We do not rehome dogs from the public, we pull our rescues from over crowded kill shelters in CO, NM, KS and WY. If you are looking to rehome your dog, we suggest finding them a home by listing on Craigs list, going to allbreedrescuenetwork.com and list with a breed specific rescue.

 

 



REMEMBER: Any behavior issues that are disclosed or apparent when dropped at a shelter will ultimately result in that dog being deemed unadoptable. 70% of dogs dropped at a shelter will not make it out alive. Seeking a behaviorist BEFORE condemning them to a shelter is always the best. Many issues can be resolved by consulting a professional!


We can help you , please email us at info@rmpuppyrescue.org for help or go to boulderhumane.org and click on their training department to find their hotline number. Lifetime commitments should be just that and seeking a new home should always be considered as a last resort.
