DARF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing adoptable companion animals and giving them a second chance at life. Among the animals Dreampower has saved are dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, horses and burros. Dreampower envisions a compassionate world where companion animals are valued, respected and provided with a secure and loving quality of life The basic foundation of our operation - and the reason for our success - lies in our volunteer foster home network. Each foster home provides a stress free, natural setting for animals to heal, socialize, and finally become ready for adoption. Each foster family conducts a one-on-one evaluation of the animal thus offering more opportunities for a better pairing with a particular adopter. Adoptions take place at either individual homes or at adoption fairs. Either way, the future adopter and adoptee may interact with each other up close and in a low stress environment. Spaying, neutering, and vaccinations are required for all companion animals. Dreampower also provides medical attention where needed. Dreampower is most fortunate to receive partial assistance for medical help from a network of very caring veterinarians who volunteer their services. We are a no-kill organization. No animal is euthanized unless its quality of life is severely and permanently compromised by sickness or injury - as determined by a veterinarian or professional animal behaviorist.
Come Meet our Pets:
Applications for adoption may be done online at our website or in person during an adoption fair. Our adoption fairs are held every Saturday (except holiday weekends) from 11:00 - 3:00 at the Petsmart Citadel Crossing located at 571 N Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, 80909. Cats are available for viewing and applications are accepted daily.
Our Adoption Process:
All applications are reviewed prior to an interview. Upon approval there is an adoption contract to be completed. Standard adoption fees are listed on our website and will vary somewhat with age,species and special needs. Dog adoptions require an additional refundable deposit upon completion of a training workshop at a training facility of choice. All cats and dogs have been spayed or neutered prior to adoption as well as having received the appropriate vaccinations. Adoptions of any ABPT requires a background check, home visit and additional references
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
