Ernie is a sweet, trusting, friendly, and playful little guy, but almost completely blind. (He can make out large, contrasting shapes, and detect movement.) But he has excellent hearing and a great nose. He is small enough to carry, if need be, and quite agreeable to being lifted. He is friendly to all the dogs who greet him through his kennel mesh. Ernie was chained up and abandoned, and that's about all we know of his past. Our vet says there is nothing to be done for his vision, but he is otherwise in good shape for an older guy. Ernie needs a small home, so he can figure out where everything is, a safe little corner to call his own, and someone to love and care for him. If you would like to meet Ernie, please email Abbie Lynn at mauiranch@yahoo.com.

Animal Rescue of the Rockies pulls abandoned dogs and cats from shelters and places them in loving foster homes until their forever homes are found. Our philosophy is that each pet deserves a loving home and a long, healthy, happy life. We do everything in our power to ensure pets receive the training, veterinary care, and loving attention needed.

Our Cat Casita in Fairplay, CO houses adoptable cats in a cage-free cat "playroom" - visitors are welcome to stop by and meet our cats anytime during open hours. The Cat Casita is located downstairs at High Paw Pet Supply, 503 Hwy. 285, Fairplay, CO (719) 836-4909.

We also operate a thrift store in Breckenridge, Colorado to help fund our operations so we can help as many pets as possible. Animal Rescue of the Rockies Thrift Shop is located at 203 N. Main Street in Breckenridge, (970) 453-4339.
