Prior to the 1980's, there were little resources in the community to help these adorable furry friends. As time went on, this shelter grew and prospered due to all of the generous volunteers who dedicated their time to saving animals lives. Therefore, community involvement and volunteering hold a special place in the heart of this shelter.
TCRAS hosts tons of different fun and creative fundraisers throughout the year all across the county. They do animal Christmas parades, adoption fairs to help their community find the dog or cat of their dreams, delicious spaghetti dinners to raise money to take care of their animals, and so much more! They truly are dedicated to not just saving the lives of their animals but also making sure the community is involved in the process as well.
The Misfits Dogs Rescue is located a bit outside of Green Mountain Falls, in Colorado Springs, CO. Their mission is to take all of the "misfits" who have lost their homes off the street and provide them with the "perfect fit" home. They are a foster-based rescue group, so they do not have an actual shelter as all dogs stay in the homes of temporary foster parents. In order to adopt a dog from this group, one must attend an adoption event to see the dogs they have available at that time.
The Misfits rely on the help and generosity of their volunteers, foster homes, and the efforts of the surrounding community. They organize many doggie meet-and-greats throughout the year for people in the community to visit and adopt their available dogs. Christmas parties for dogs, doggie wash days, and Octoberfests for humans and dogs also make an appearce during the year to help raise money for the dogs of The Misfit Dog Rescue group.
