A Second Chance -> A New Journey -> A Forever Home

About The Pawsitive Pathways Program


Our Mission

is to save dogs from rural,

underserved areas of Colorado where they are unable or unlikely to be adopted or at risk of euthanasia. After taking the dog into our PACFA certified rehabilitation program they are vetted, loved, trained and socialized. We work closley with local businesses, shelters and rescues around the state, and our communities both in person and through social media to network and promote the dogs. The end goal being to give them the best opportunity to find a new home!

Pawsitive Pathways is truly a unique and innovative program. We are constantly working to expand our reach and resources throughout the state to further build on our proven success of saving dogs thus far.

Some of the wonderful shelters, rescues, and animal control offices we've worked with so far include:  RezDawg Rescue,  La Junta Animal Shelter, Live Love Rescue, EPAWA, Pikes Peak Humane Society, Denver Dumb Friends League, Lamar Animal Shelter, Coopers Companions, Baca County Animal Services, Ordway Animal Control, and more.

Here is the full process for dogs entering the program:

  • The dog is met by our founder, program director and dog trainer Brandie to receive an initial behavior evaluation and assessment

  • They are picked up from their current living situation and travel to their new temporary home with Brandie

  • Monetary sponsorship/donations are secured for the dog to ensure proper care and resources throughout their time in the program

  • They stay in the program for approximately 4 weeks (or as long as it takes to find them a great new home) learning how to trust humans, be a good dog in a home environment, basic manners, obedience, how to socialize with other dogs, meeting new people and animals, etc

  • They receive any veterinary or medical care necessary during their stay

  • All while being promoted and networked around the state to find their perfect new forever family!

  • Once a perfect new family is found, the adoption paperwork is completed with whatever agency, shelter or rescue the dog  is being sponsored by and then Brandie, the program director/trainer transports the dog to their new home

  • The dog and their new family have lifelong support and communication from our program and we do everything we can to ensure that our doggie program graduates NEVER return back to a shelter or life on the streets
