About Our Rescue Group:

Thunder Puppy is people training for dogs, a canine rehabilitation, and adoption organization located in beautiful Colorado. We strive not only build a better loving relationship between human and dog, but also to save the lives of those dogs that have been misplaced, misunderstood, and given up on. We are the only dog training institute in our state to offer PACK THERAPY: a group of rescued dogs paying it forward to help troubled animals return to balance and have a second chance at a quality of life.

Thunder Puppy University has trained literally hundreds of dogs and their people over the past decade. In addition, working mostly (but certainly not exclusively) with Siberian Huskies, Sled Dogs, and Alaskan Malamutes, we have rehabilitated and rehomed 80 dogs out of pocket since 2009. We believe in nothing less than treating each animal as an individual with the utmost respect and love.

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.
