Paws on the Ground Colorado

Littleton, CO

Our Mission

We are a volunteer group of animal lovers and advocates. The efforts of Paws On The Ground started with an advocacy group to reduce puppy mill commerce which grew into a foster based rescue to help animals from high kill shelters as with taking in the unwanted, displaced and abandoned.

We help facilitate transport, vetting, and the adoption of our rescued canines into their adoptive homes. When an animal comes into rescue there are a team of volunteers working together to bring an animal into safety and eventually a better life.

We assist communities with overpopulation issues by awarding scholarships for spaying & neutering to prevent more unwanted litters to individuals who need help and are surrendering animals to rescue. We help animals locally, from surrounding states, and also over seas.

The animals are the clients and the center of Paws On The Ground.

Adoption Policy

The first step is an application. If lifestyle is a good fit for dog applied for the application is sent to the foster for further review. If they approve the applicant is contacted to set up a meet and greet. We also require a home visit before the animal goes home to ensure the environment and fencing (if applicable) is in good condition. The adopter then completes an adoption contract and pays their adoption fee.
