All Breed Rescue & Training has been an integral part of the community since 1996. We ONLY rescue and rehabilitate LOCAL at-risk dogs who often have no options left. Our Best of the Springs winning training services give our foster dogs a new leash on life. Hundreds of other dogs from our community every year benefit from our relationship-based training programs, many of whom utilizing free or reduced cost services.
ABRT is the longest running all breed rescue in Colorado Springs. With our network of foster homes, we rescue and rehabilitate dogs that might traditionally be deemed “unadoptable” and give them the tools they need to thrive in a permanent home. We are dedicated to the well-being of all dogs, so all aspects of our training and behavior programs are, and always have been, relationship based and fear free.
We are always looking for foster homes! Other needs include grant writers, dog walkers, gift cards to stores like Costco, Lowe’s, and Walmart, cleaning supplies, and facility improvement volunteers.
Studies show that among owners who relinquished their dogs, two out of three cite behavior issues as a primary reason.
“The human-animal bond isn’t just between us as a human with our pets, it extends to humanity and all animals. ABRT is important because they help dogs who’ve been let down by humanity rebuild their trust and get a second chance.” — Erin Dixon, DVM
