Leftover puppies from New Mexico brought to Colo., ready for adoption
Puppies up for adoption
DENVER — If you’re looking for a friend who won’t ask you to borrow money, use your car or drink all your beer, we have the answer.
On Friday and Saturday, you have a chance to adopt one of about 75 puppies brought to Colorado Tuesday night from New Mexico, thanks to All Aboard Animal Rescue.
“There’s a good chance they could have been euthanized. We work closely with shelters out of New Mexico and there’s a pretty large overpopulation problem down in that state,” said Becca Murphy, who is fostering a dachshund mix called Jasmine. “The fact is the shelters run out of space.”
Jamaica arrived in Colorado Tuesday night.
“This is Little Italy,” says Courtney Brunkow, of the puppy she’ll be fostering for a few days.
He’s one of 74 dogs—most of them puppies—trying to nibble their way into new, forever homes.
And when you have breath this good, it probably won’t be hard.
“They’re kind of uncoordinated. They trip over their feet sometimes. They’re really playful. They’re really inquisitive about the world they interact with, and yah, it’s really cool to watch them develop,” said Murphy.
She’s fostered nearly two dozen dogs.
She says All Aboard Animal Rescue makes it easy to temporarily take in the cute canines.
“The rescue provides everything like kennels and food and whatnot. So it doesn’t cost you anything. It also gives people a chance to get their puppy fix, and then send them on to a good, permanent home,” says Murphy.
You can see each of the puppies pictures on Facebook at All Aboard Animal Rescue. But beware: who can say ‘no’ to these furry faces?
The adoptions take place Sept. 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Northglenn PetSmart off 104th and Interstate 25 and the Fort Collins PetSmart at 4432 S. College Ave.
Adoption fees start at $250 but include: a first round of vaccinations, six weeks of training, a vet exam and coupons for supplies to PetSmart.
