I posted my foster dog who came from Las Vegas Shelter on Craigslist and then got an email from a volunteer with PetSmart Charities who has offered to help LVAS send adoptable dogs to Boulder, CO on their rescue van. The program pays to send shelter employees/volunteers to a two day workshop run out of Boulder Animal Humane. At the workshop the "sending" shelters and the "receiving" shelters learn to evaluate dog behavior by the same standards.

After the workshop and a shelter visit from a Petsmart Charities representative, they setup a regular schedule to pick up dogs from the sending shelter with the petsmart charities rescue wagon, the animals are brought to Boulder Animal Humane (the receiveing shelter), evaulated a second time, spayed/neutered, and adopted!

They have to send a minimum of 15 dogs each trip and they will make special trips if they get several litters of puppies, etc...

It sounds like a great way to free space at the Shelter. Sad part is, no pit bulls. That damn, ignorant breed specific ban that Denver has may be migrating to nearby cities. But, we shouldn't kick a gift horse in the mouth, so the saying goes. It's a great program!

I have emails and phone numbers I can email... not sure if I should post them here.
