Come and join our adoption team. If you enjoy working with people as well as animals, you can work at our adoption events at the Petsmart on Coors Bypass or many of the off-site opportunities we have available. Be there to share in the joy of a homeless pet finding a new family.

We have many special events throughout the year that we need help with. The jobs vary from doing adoptions, answering the public’s questions and helping with our animals. To learn about upcoming events keep an eye on our calendar and join us on Facebook.

See below for other ways to help! 


Do you enjoy building things and fixing them up? We always need people for small construction projects from installing chain link fencing, building temporary pens for special events, painting and doing simple repairs. If you’re interested in helping please let us know.


We need help maintaining the grounds at the ranch. If you would like to help keep the facility looking its best, please join us for watering and general projects. Make it a Scout or Company project and bring the whole group for community service.
