The Joys of Fostering
Is gratitude a doggy trait? No one can ever convince me that it isn't ... I swear that I have seen it and felt it. There's no feeling in the world quite like the joy you feel in witnessing the transformation of a rescued dog under your care. It is truly miraculous. Granted, taking home a dog with little or no history takes a certain amount of courage, along with an open heart. But I've found great joy in watching lost, unwanted, sick, and/or aging dogs grow more and more comfortable, confident and affectionate ... often learning for the first time what being a dog is all about.

Ming came to the Colorado Peke and Pom Rescue from Seoul Korea. In May 2013, Ming suffered a back injury and had lost the use of his back legs. A vet in Korea put Ming on some medication which did help reduce some of the swelling. This allowed Ming some use of his back legs. Fearful that Ming would not receive the specialized care he needed in Korea, his owners reached out to CPPR. After numerous emails and consults with our Veterinarian, we agreed that time was of the essence and we should try and help Ming sooner than later. His owners made arangements and soon Ming was crossing the globe. He arrived at DIA on June 5th. Ming was put on a mild pain sedative and anti-inflammatory and was to be kept as quiet as possible. Ming was kept on this regimen for 6 weeks. He regained a little more use of his legs, but was still wobbly. We took Ming to a specialist at Alameda East. After a thorough examination, the vet determined that it was just too risky to perform back surgery on Ming. He recommended water therapy to strengthen Mings legs and back. Ming went to 8 water therapy classes, where he walked on a treadmill under water and participated in other water excersizes . We are happy to report that Ming has gained the strength he needed. He is no longer on any pain medication and is enjoying playing with his foster pals.
Ming is up for adoption now and can be seen on our adoptable page. We recommend that Ming be placed in a home with very few stairs.
Ming continues to gain strength everyday. We believe that he will only get stronger and stronger. Please consider making Ming the King a part of your family.

The Machika Fund
Created by the Rescue to help provide necessary—but often costly—medical care for our Special Need dogs, The Machika Fund aids injured animals needing immediate surgery as well as those requiring ongoing treatments which will allow them to live normal and fulfilled lives. The name of the Fund was inspired by a very special precious personality who has touched—and continues to touch—so many hearts and lives. A female Pekingese, Machika came to us when her owner died; she was still wearing a special tag that said "Therapy Dog." More »
Colorado Peke and Pom Rescue, Inc. has created a network of volunteers in all regions of Colorado to help transport and foster its Precious Personalities (adoptable dogs) until they are placed into forever homes. Our Precious Personalities come from local shelters, private homes, vet offices and as strays. Our goal is to be able to take in all of these precious dogs and find them the homes they deserve. Without volunteers, we will not be able to achieve that goal. More »
HAPPY NEW YEAR to our Friends & Volunteers!
It is amazing to realize that it has been seven years since the start of the Colorado Peke and Pom Rescue. 2013 began with some heart breaking news. The loss of our President and founder brought deep sadness to the rescue community. Connie Riddell worked tirelessly until the end rescuing the forgotten. We will never forget what she has done. We were left with big shoes to fill. We forged ahead. We saved as many as we could and vow to make 2014 a better year for the rescue. As of the end of 2013, CPPR has rescued more than 1400 little dogs since its inception in 2007 - a number that truly amazes us!
2013 brought an amazing group of volunteers closer together and a number of new friends and volunteers who became a part of the CPPR family. To them we say "thank you!" and "welcome"! Volunteers really DO make a difference! More lives can be saved ... more little Precious Personalities get a second chance to live out their lives surrounded by love. Read more »
