Missy, a Cocker mix, arrived in the Rescue a scared, distrusting and defensive dog who had known life only as a too-small crate in the basement. After four months with RMCR, she had blossomed into a playful, happy, confident little girl who loved to be with her people. Nancy was looking for a new companion after losing her beloved Cocker, Copper, and expressed an interest in Missy. When Missy showed up to the adoption event, looking super cute after a trip to the groomer, Nancy fell in love! Missy’s foster mom knew it was a good match when Missy curled up next to Nancy after a few minutes with her, and then saw Missy trot off happily with Nancy to her new life. We wish Nancy and Missy all the best!!

Kay with Annie and Jim with Chase
Jim and Kay had previously adopted Annie from RMCR last year. An avid Cocker lover, Jim began to volunteer transporting dogs from foster homes to the vet, meeting incoming transports and taking dogs to foster homes, and shuffling dogs from foster homes to adoption events. He was very adamant that Annie was “the only dog” and Annie agreed! That was until he met Chase. Chase came to us a very sick little boy. He had a liver shunt and was in danger of dying without surgery. The surgery was to be done at the Colorado State University Vet School in Fort Collins. Jim took Chase up multiple times in preparation for the surgery and also for the actual procedure and they developed a strong bond. Once Chase was well enough to be adopted, Jim couldn’t resist! Now Chase has a happy forever home with Jim and Kay and Annie doesn’t seem to mind too much!!

Cocoa with Jody and Londa
Jody and Londa were so happy that they came early to one of our adoption events. They had submitted their adoption application and been approved in advance of their stop at the Highlands Ranch Petco on February 6. We told them they should arrive early in the day because we were expecting that a few of dogs would be adopted rather quickly. Cocoa, an owner surrender from the previous evening, was very popular with everyone that morning. Cockapoos in general tend to be adopted very quickly, but Cocoa was extra cute and friendly, so she drew a crowd. Luckily for Jody and Londa, they were already approved to take home the dog of their dreams, so Cocoa left for her new forever home that day! Now Cocoa has a doggie door and large, fenced backyard to play in when she’s not licking the cat, snuggling with Jody and Londa or burying her rawhides. By the way, Cocoa came with a complete wardrobe to her new home, as well, so she is ready for walks at all times. Talk about a lucky dog!

Giorgia, Victor and Sam with Miguel and Felix
Joey was almost out of time in a New Mexico shelter when we heard about him. As fate would have it, one of our volunteers was down there visiting family. So, she rescued him and brought him to Denver. Meanwhile, Giorgia had just lost a ten month old puppy to a sudden illness. When she saw Joey on our site, she knew he was the one. Now called Felix, he lives with Giorgia and Victor, their son Sam, and pal Miguel. Sam loves to play ball with him and he and Miguel make sure that the back yard is squirrel-free. From the look of things, it’s going to be a Merry Christmas!
