Thank you for thinking adoption first!  You are making the right decision!  Our adoption fee for dogs is $50.  All our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped and up to date on their vaccines.  The adoption fee for cats is $30.  All our cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped up to date on their shots and feline leukemia negative.  Large black dogs and adult black cats have the hardest times finding homes.  Please pick a black dog or an adult cat if you can!

Our facility is located just across the street from the Rifle High School on Prefontaine Avenue in Rifle, Colorado. Rifle is on the western slope of Colorado between Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction. There are shorter ways to get to the shelter, but this is the easiest way if you don’t know Rifle. If you are coming into Rifle from Interstate 70, take the 90 exit and drive north into town. You will be on Railroad Avenue. Stay on Railroad most of the way through town. You will pass City Market and will see a Wells Fargo Bank and Jean’s Printing where 16th Street crosses Railroad Avenue. Turn left/west on 16th Street and follow that road up a hill and around. You will see the bus barn for Rifle High School. We are on the right side of the road right after you see the buses and the football bleachers. We have signs out front and you will see lots of chain link fencing. Map to our shelter
