Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are an all foster home based rescue, we do not have a facility where we house the dogs. All dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption. We have an online application on our website, www.softplacetoland.org and we ask each interested party to fill out an application on the dog (s) they are interested in meeting. We prefer to adopt our dogs out locally, generally within 2 hours, one way, of our home base of Ft. Collins Colorado. We do allow out of area adoptions in special circumstances but we do have additional requirements for out of area adoptions.

About Our Rescue Group:

A Soft Place To Land, Inc. was founded in 2010 by two dog lovers and best friends. We are a small foster home-based rescue, so we do not have a shelter facility. As former breeders of English Springer Spaniels, we realized there were too many dogs out there without homes - why breed more dogs?! So we decided to rescue retired breeders so they would not be euthanized. Our hope is that eventually, through awareness of the plight of puppy mill dogs, more people will choose to adopt a pet instead of purchasing a pet through a pet store - making puppy mills a thing of the past!

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

We have a "donate" button on our web site. We also have a wish list on Amazon.com. We always need cleaning items, old bedding, old towels, dog beds, gas cards, and just about anything else you can think of!

Our Adoption Process:

www.softplacetoland.org.
Step 1: Fill out an adoption application.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
