The Issue: Preventable Animal Deaths by Euthanasia
Of the approximately five to seven million companion animals that enter animal shelters nationwide each year, three to four million are killed by euthanasia, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
The Campaign: Providing Puppies with Vaccinations
If this Grassroots campaign raises $600, then Colorado Puppy Rescue can provide 20 puppies with required vaccinations to prepare them for adoption. Each additional $30 raised will be used to provide another puppy with vaccinations.

Colorado Puppy Rescue
Colorado Puppy Rescue works to save the lives of and find loving, permanent homes for as many puppies as possible. To that end, the organization partners with rural shelters and rescuers that don't have enough funding to adopt the puppies, many of which would otherwise face euthanasia due to overcrowding and lack of necessary resources. Colorado Puppy Rescue receives new puppies each week, and as a shelterless rescue, places them in foster homes and hosts adoption events at a local Petco. All puppies placed for adoption have been examined by a vet technician and are up-to-date on vaccinations.
