About Mountain Pet Rescue

Pets come into our lives and touch our hearts. Sometimes they change us forever.

For Sybil Miller, that pet was Boris – a Bernese mountain dog who would have continued to swelter under Florida’s sun if Sybil hadn’t flown from Colorado to rescue him. Sybil had been looking for a Bernese but couldn’t find one in a Colorado shelter; the breed was so popular there, no one had one available. When she contacted the Florida shelter, they were thrilled that Boris had finally found a loving home and could be the mountain dog he was meant to be.

The experience taught Sybil that certain dogs that are in high demand in Colorado mountain communities, such as Labradors, Newfoundlands, Huskies, and Heelers are often considered unadoptable in other states. With the help of a group of dedicated volunteers, Sybil decided to start a local rescue dedicated to finding homes for these types of dogs. And so Mountain Pet Rescue was born.

We are a foster-based rescue in Grand County, CO that focuses on rescuing active, energetic “mountain” dogs by working with overcrowded shelters in and outside of Colorado. Our Board of Directors strives to match each dog with its perfect home by assessing its temperament, evaluating the potential foster and adoption home, and following up with the pet owner to ensure a healthy and enjoyable relationship.

We look forward to helping you find the perfect family member to join your loving home!

Crockett was adopted from Mountain Pet Rescue as a puppy back in February 2022. Thanks to his microchip, we were notified by a Colorado animal shelter when he was relinquished by the man we trusted to care for him. Per shelter staff, Crockett's person was too embarrassed to reach out to MPR even though we will always take our dogs back! Now 2-1/2 yrs old and 56 lbs, true to his herding breed instincts, Crockett is a smart, sensitive, athletic, very devoted to his human, dog. Currently in boarding, please share Crockett with your cattle dog loving friends/family and help us find him a foster and/or his forever person/home. Please call/text MPR 9702817381 if you can help. ... See MoreSee Less

HELP! Nori here! My foster mom is leaving town on Wednesday and I need a place to go!! I'm 2 yrs old and 40 lbs of adorable, spunky, smart, very treat motivated, lab mix. I love women and tolerate men. My perfect home would include a fenced yard big enough to run in with canine friend(s) and people who LOVE to go on walks as much as I do. Sadly, car rides scare me (as my experience is that they always end up at a vet's office) so I need a patient human who can show me that most car rides end with a fun outdoor adventure or a Puppuccino, etc. Please call/text MPR today at 970-281-7381 if you can HELP! ...

At 5-1/2 yrs old and 100 lbs., our Great Pyrenees mix, Balto, enjoys lots of outdoor activities including walks, runs and hikes. He is great on leash and, when indoors, Balto is very calm and well-behaved... a true gentle giant who loves people, including young children. Balto's perfect home would include a large, secure, fenced yard and people who will love him forever! To meet Balto in his Fraser CO foster home, apply to adopt him at mountainpetrescue.org ...

Our Objectives
We strive to find foster care and forever homes for dogs in need.

We collaborate with other animal welfare organizations to help find good homes for pets in need – no matter where the pet is located or what organization it is with.

We support our volunteers by showing them the respect, professionalism and responsiveness that they deserve, so that they find volunteering with Mountain Pet Rescue to be a valuable, rewarding, and enjoyable experience.

We provide basic education and training to the general public and to those who foster and/or adopt, so that our pets receive proper care in their new homes and lessen the need for rescue. Education and training topics include basic behavioral skills for pets and their owners, basic first aid and the importance of spay and neutering.

We have developed a system that is informative, timely and organized. We routinely track pet status’, communicate with the public and volunteers, and respond to questions and/or concerns within 24 hours to ensure a successful experience in pet ownership, education and fostering.
