Meet Jacob... he came to CPPR when his person passed away. He gets along with other dogs and loves all people. He would make a very nice companion to anyone who is looking for love.

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.

SILENT AUCTION AND WINE TASTING EVENT update:
Our heartfelt THANKS goes out to all who came out to support the rescue at our silent auction and wine tasting event that was held on Sunday, November 16th. CHEERS go out to all our committed, fabulous volunteers, adopters and friends! The event was quite a success and most importantly, we had so much FUN!
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 »
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 »
