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.
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!
