Open adoptions for RMPR have resumed at



Please fill out an adoption application before the event. 
Sign up sheet goes on our table starting at 12 pm.
Adoption interviews and visitations start at 12 pm.
If you're looking for an appointment, please read about our VIP process
on our adoption application.
All persons signing up must show a valid ID  - either a passport and or license.
You must show proof of residency - either a  mortgage statement or a lease agreement
with a pet addendum if you are adopting a breed-restricted dog or at the discretion of RMPR (which means if we feel it necessary due to the dog's disposition or breed mix.) 


First come first served. We will interview you and go over your application and you can visit up to two dogs. TWO dogs may be visited for up to 10 minutes each for a total of 20 minutes. If you are visiting two at a time you will be allotted 15 minutes total time. If you are called and you are not in the building your place in line will be forfeited. NO adoptions may be done for persons not present. We will not adopt puppies or adults in pairs. We do not "hold" dogs, and we do not adopt on "different days or at different times", please do not ask us to do so. We are a shelter without walls which means we all schedule our Saturdays to come together to showcase dogs to the public. If you are "just looking" this is not the event for you, please be serious about adopting. All decisions about adoptions lay in the jurisdiction of the Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue and we hold the right to reject an application at any time. By signing up for our adoptions and attending our event, you agree to our policies. 


ALL RMPR dogs are altered before adoption. All are microchipped and up to date on their vaccines. All are ready and cleared for adoption. Due to unforeseen circumstances if we have to "pull a dog" due to illness we will do so before adoption day, but sometimes it can happen on adoption day. We will not hold that dog for you but we will work with you to the best of our ability to find another match. We ask all adopters for their time ( 3 to 4 hours adoption day ), their patience, and understanding. It may inconvenience you but we always make it "all about the dogs" and their wellbeing. We know that you all love dogs and we ask for your support in these efforts. 


If you are looking to "skip the line" and interview PRIOR to coming to our Saturday event, sign up for VIP.  Simply check the box on your application. This is also first come first serve. You must be interviewed via the phone before Saturday. A non-refundable $50.00 fee will be paid via PayPal to RMPR before the adoption event.  This will hold your spot for that Saturday. This fee is in addition to our adoption fees.  If you do not show, you will forfeit your deposit. If you do not find a dog you like you will not be refunded the deposit but we can hold it for you for a future date. This is no guarantee. You will need to communicate with us and we will do our best to accommodate you. The 50.00 is to not stand in line and not interview the day of adoption. It does not guarantee your first choice in dog although we will do everything we can to ensure you are able to meet your first choice.

Our foster network is the lifeblood of the rescue. Fosters allow us to bring dogs and carts from high-kill shelters in surrounding states to find forever homes here in Colorado. Please consider opening your home to help animals in desperate need.
You can learn more information about fostering
