At Rescued Paws @ Alpine, we are family ran and owned facility. We have integrated a small rescue to our 'home away from home' for dogs that find themselves displaced, in a home that they don’t fit in well with, or other special circumstances.


Our surrender contract allows the current pet parents to give us information on behavior and medical needs, and then to be able to decide if we can help them. Rescued Paws is not a typical ‘rescue’ as we do not seek out to pull dogs from homes or situations, but are more than willing to help other rescues when the time comes!

Dogs brought to us are in situations in which it simply is not healthy for the dog to continue or there is no one to care for the dog and they are surrendered to us. We locally adopt and locally re-home dogs by world of mouth from clients and friends. We pride ourselves in knowing that we will see them again in visits or contact through the years after an adoption.

Why we accept a surrender: We understand that sometimes humans can choose dogs that are not suited for their family, it can create anxiety, behavior issues, fear, issues with children, other dogs, and energy levels that you are not prepared for. Our main goal is find homes that are well suited for the dogs and the new pet family. We are only a home between homes for our furry friends and we love and care for them as our own.


We may not always have lots of dogs to choose from, as our dogs fluctuate depending on situations they are in.



How ADOPTION works

We appreciate you taking the time to fill out our adoption or foster application, and will keep it on file for when we have a dog come to us that may suit your requests and their needs close to perfect.


After we receive an application, we can set up meet and greets with you and the requested dog, to see how they feel about you. If we choose to move forward, all is well, we will arrange to come to your home, and home check.

During this we also let the dog check you, after all it’s for them! If they are happy to be there, we watch the behavior and comfort of the dog, help you introduce them to your home, other animals or children. Then we will continue to the adoption contract, and do a 24 hour trial. During your 24 hour trial, for any reason, you may cancel and full refund is given. We continue on if things are well to a 7 day trial, whereas the same return policy’s upheld, full refund within a week.

Once you’re made your full week and during that time fell in love and can’t look back, we officially transfer files from vets to your vet and allow full ownership.

Thank you for considering an adoption and we look forward to building more furry relationships over the years to come.

We have a partner vet, Animal Care Center in Strathmore to care for and vet check our Rescued Paws dog. Our dogs are fed on donated food from our pals at Strathmore PetPlanet and other donators. We do accept bedding /leashes/collars/food /toys /treats etc. and use these to care for and send to foster and adoption homes when needed.

*we do not intake severe medical needs dogs, or dogs with human aggression. We kindly defer these cases to other rescues that are larger with the appropriate trainers and vet care.

*we are non-profit, but are not registered. We offer a simple process and avoid a lot of the complex rescue adoptions by keeping things simple.


Dixie is looking for a new home-

She has been around cats, dogs and kids, does very well, but older kids in the household will only be accepted. Cats are tolerated but she will need time to adjust. She is good with other dogs, and loves to run! 

Dixie will need someone to work on her loose leash walking, she pulls when she wants to get to something. She is also a couch and bed cuddler so please do not ask to adopt her unless you need to share your bed!

She is 7 years old, spayed and looking for her new couch to call home.

Minni! You are such a sweet, wiggle bum!

This is Minni She is a 5 year old American Staffordshire terrier. 85 pounds of bouncing love for her human!

She is Spayed & vaccinated.

Minni is looking for a new couch, she is seeking a family with no other dogs, and No cats. She is reactive to other animals and we are working to help her, but her next family will understand she is a one dog kinda home:) We also know that she may be ok with a dog sibling if the introduction is right and they are calm. So selective dog homes will be looked at.

She must be with a family that will continue to support her and love her. Minni loves kids, and adores the attention from them and her parents.

Will you be my new couch cuddler?


Ozzy is a friendly guy, he is excited to meet you, he does jump a little, but he is learning. Ozzy walks on leash amazing, he has great attention to his person and loves to meet new friends. He is a Pyranese/collie mix about 50 pounds. He is a year old, neutered and vaccinated, and ready to find a home. He can sit, lay down, and shake a paw. 

He is still going through some testing, but he would do well with a home that is active, and likes to have a companion. He is interested in cats but we have not tested his threshold here so no cats is best. Small kids under 10 are not recommended, older children and adult families. Ozzy being a herding descendant is going to feel most comfortable with a family that is not in the toddler and high energy homes. 

Bruce is a boy full of Spice!

He is looking for a home with:

NO KIDS, NO CATS, he is very selective in dogs friends so a single dog home is suitable. There are no exceptions for this as he is extremely reactive and fearful of kids. He has had training, and behavior assessments and the best fit is to not have his stressed.

Bruce has some complex idiosyncrasies, he picks his humans he likes and so we fully believe he will pick his new parents.

He has medications to help him with his anxiety, and help to maintain a healthy brain!

Bruce loves to play, he is obsessed with tug, toys, mops, brooms, and anything that he can chase and squeeze.

Being 9 years old, he wants a lovely home to sleep and suntan in, lay his days away with you on the couch and snuggle. He is a French Bulldog and can not wait to start his next chapter!

Munchkin requires daily medications and supplements, and weight management food, but UPDATE, is doing amazing!!!!

She will have a great few years left, let her love you!
