Wild Places Rescue

Wild Places Rescue is a year-round sanctuary for donkeys, goats, dogs, cats, and chickens that have been abused, neglected, injured, abandoned, or feral. Wild Places also assists in the rescue of horses in Colorado who are at risk of being shipped for slaughter; these horses are rehabilitated and/or quarantined if necessary, and then placed in loving homes. We are also working with a veterinarian in Central Mexico to establish a community program for street dogs who need medical care and loving homes.

* URGENT: If you are in Colorado and are willing to help us find stable/safe/permanent homes for horses, please contact us. Once a trusted home is lined up, our volunteers can intercept horses who are likely to end up at a kill lot!

Wild Places is primarily a retirement facility and hospice for animals, focusing on special-needs animals. Our goal is to provide a high level of care and quality of life for each animal, and make them feel safe, loved, enriched, and as comfortable as possible. We generally accept animals that are out of options -- animals that have nowhere else to go. We have rescued animals dealing with blindness, deafness, chronic diseases, chronic spinal injuries, severe arthritis, genetic/developmental defects, thyroid disorders, and extreme old age. Several of our animals require special diets and expensive medications, which we accommodate, regardless of the cost.

Wild Places is a 501c3 organization, and is run solely by volunteers. As a non-profit organization, all funds are based on personal and business contributions, grants, and fundraisers. Donations of any size are always appreciated! Most of our animals are not available for adoption; however, if you are looking for a pasture-pal for your own animals, please email us to discuss.
