Adoption Instructions

Hi. Please apply at mgarcolorado.org. Thank you for applying to adopt! We are a small, all volunteer group who doesn't have the man power to handle the volume of calls and emails and to update every single applicant who applies. If you are chosen you will hear from us. If we need more information while your app is being processed, you will hear from us. If it has been over a week and you haven't been contacted then your app has not been chosen. We cannot answer every email if your application was denied and you have questions. We try to change the animals' status quickly once an animal is adopted. Because our adoption process involves many steps, an animal can still be pending for up to a week. If it doesn't result in adoption then we will look back into their applications and contact another runner up. We are playing match maker with the animals' needs in mind. If your application isn't chosen it doesn't mean it was denied, but could be it wasn't the right fit for what we know about that animal. We will try to pair you with another animal. Also if an animal has many great applications we sadly can only choose one. We will also try our best to find another animal that could work in that case. Every question in this application is asked on purpose and for good reason. If you feel the application is too long or too intense you do not have to submit one and can try another organization or shelter.

Have you ever wondered what a cat crossed with a 90 year old man looks like? If so, you need to meet Hamilton in person. He is a beautiful black long-haired cat with clear Persian features minus the flat face. He weighs just over 5 pounds and has long beautiful fur and short cobbly legs like a persian. Due to a medical issue, he had to have the lower half of his body shaved but now he is all better but sporting a really odd hairstyle. He needs to remain on a special diet due to medical issues but he does great now and the diet is easy to follow.  Hamilton loves people, making biscuits, following you like glue, purring, cuddling and making you feel special. Yeah, he's basically not a cat. In fact, I would bet a nickel that you have never met a cat who loves affection as much as Hammy does. It is hard to imagine what Hamilton's life consisted of before he came into the rescue via Texas but he's definitely making up for lost time by taking in all the affection and love he possibly can get. Can you give him a forever home that filled with phyiscal affection?  He doesn't seem to mind the presence of other cats or dogs, so he may coexist in a home with other feline or canine occupants. He would be a great cat around children too.  He is neutered, microchipped, felv fiv negative and up to date on vaccines.  show less

This handsome lug is a 4 year old pointer mix named Marshall. He is good with other dogs, cats. He was abused in his prior home. We believe the children in the home were not taught how to properly interact and respect a dog in the home. When Marshall arrived to us he had indicators that he was used to an unkind treatment. Marshall has been with us a month and has been a complete dream. He is well behaved and has had a wonderful temperament. He loves being around the other dogs. He is living with a 4 and 7 year old children who do know how to properly act with a dog. Marshall was brought to the vet for euthanasia after the child in the home jumped on him and Marshall reacted by biting his hand. The vet didn't believe he was a bad dog, but set up for failure many time, and reached out to us to take him. Even though he has been living with children fine currently, we cannot adopt him into a home with young children due to the circumstances.  Marshall also has food allergies that make his skin irritated and have hot spots. On the proper diet his skin has done well. There may be some maintenance with medicated baths here and there to help if he seems to need it. The adopter should be aware and willing to change his diet if he begins to have reactions and go to the vet for treatment if needed and life long medications if a diet cannot address the allergies in the future. A raw diet would be best for Marshall and turkey seems to be the protein he does well on.    Please apply at mgarcolorado.org to get started.  show less
