My Fairy Dawg Mother Rescue was founded in an effort to save abused and neglected dogs from across the United States and pair them with loving and stable Colorado families. We are a Colorado based non-profit dog rescue that advocates finding the perfect long term home for each dog that is brought under the rescue umbrella.
We are a Colorado based non-profit dog rescue that advocates finding the perfect long term home for each dog that is brought under the rescue umbrella. The dog rescue was established in early 2011. My Fairy Dawg Mother Rescue, Inc. boasts a 100% success rate with over 500 dogs that have been placed since the creation of the rescue.
The successful placement of each rescue dog lies in a formulated plan that consists of the utilization of foster homes, behavioral modification training, complete vetting, an adoption agreement, and a trial period offered to every adoption candidate with their potential canine companion.
Our foster program is constructed of a large group of Colorado families that have opened their homes to our rescue dogs. By temporarily housing a rescue dog in a functional home we can erase the stresses that boarding facilities can induce. The integration of a rescue pup into an established pack promotes socialization and develops self confidence. In addition, the rescue pup receives individualized attention and love from their foster family.
Foster families are integral component of the welfare of our rescue dogs. They are able to provide inside information and observations about their foster pups. The detailed knowledge that is provided to potential adopters contributes to the overall success of the adoption ensuring that it’s a good fit for everyone involved. We encourage our foster parents to ask adopters questions that are not listed in the agreement/application that may come about in conversation. Also, we recommend that adopters share past dog experiences with the foster parents and facilitator. By sharing information we are able to determine which rescue dog would fit better with your individual lifestyle.
Colorado families that adopt a rescue dog through My Fairy Dawg Mother Rescue, Inc., are encouraged to have the dog trainer visit them at their home. The training encourages the newly formed bond to deepen and gives guardians access to new and alternative methods for instruction.
Training and behavioral modification should not be used as a last resort. Instead, training should be utilized from the beginning of the new relationship. It is the simple difference between success and failure when introducing a rescue dog into your home.
Each dog that is rescued through our organization is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, and altered. The completion of the scheduled vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery are dependent on age and health related issues. It’s important to us that each pup is healthy as they begin their new lives.
An adoption agreement is required for each rescue dog. Our agreement is built around the application and combined to make the most of everyone’s valuable time. Additional verbiage and/or provisions may be written into the agreement tailored to the specific needs of the rescue dog i.e. vaccinations or spay/neuter surgeries.
A completed and signed agreement is requested at the beginning of any trial period. Trial periods are not a requirement of our adoption process but rather a courtesy we offer. We support trial periods consisting of an overnight stay or a weekend trip. This exercise helps everyone become more comfortable and fosters a sense of security.
The unfortunate reality is that there are so many unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs that are euthanized every year. It’s our hope, here in Colorado, through the efforts of our organization, we can make an impact. We are trying to save as many dogs as possible. We challenge you to find a way to make an impact as well.
Perhaps you’re not in a position to foster or adopt another dog. Consider all the other ways you can help with this cause. Nothing is off limits as far as volunteering goes. You could transport dogs from one location to another; donate food, leashes, collars, or money; sponsor a foster dog with a medical condition.
Are you a photographer looking for a new subject? Donate your time and photo graph one of our pups to feature in their adoption bio. Did you go to school to be EMT, former phlebotomist, or currently a vet tech? We could use your help in administering micro-chips to new rescues. If you have a niche and an itch to help, contact us!
We are committed to finding the right home for each one of our rescue dogs. People will say, “You know, you can’t save them all?!”
And we will always retort, “That won’t keep us from trying!”
