You receive about 10/15 calls per shift.
We provide a training manual and an EAPL volunteer assistance is just a phone call away.
We have shifts available 7–days a week 8am-1:30 or 1:30-7pm.

How about we
hang out together?

We are an all-breed dog and cat rescue.



The Adoption Process begins when you complete an online application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt.

One of the most important ways to volunteer for EAPL is to Foster an Animal, but there are many other volunteer roles with EAPL. Please look over our many other needs and give us a call or contact us today!

Our rescue operations are staffed entirely by caring volunteers and are not supported by taxes. Except for 3 Thrift Shop employees, no one receives compensation–we rely on our wonderful supporters to allow us to keep saying YES to all the animals.

Featured Pets

Brody McGee

Brody McGee is a hound mix about 5.5 months old  (estimated birthday 2/19/2019.) He loves people and hanging by your side. Brody loves to go on walks and play outside. He is super friendly, just not so much with other dogs.  How sad maybe he just needs to meet the right dogs and some training?  BUT he is super-duper as an [...]

Rocky is just 1 yr old (we gave him an estimated birthday of  7/15/2018. )  He is sweet and feisty (very playful). He is lovin’ the mountain life and enjoys hikes with his buddies. Rocky and the foster's dog Hyde love playing with each other. He loves to play fetch!  He is a good boy as long as he has stuff [...]

She was one of those living in a carrier, so is understandably still adapting, but she is definitely a [...]


Bill is a handsome long haired gentle, grey tabby about 4-5 years old.  Came to us from rescue in Ft. Lupton. Bill came from a hoarding situation where cats were living confined to a cage - a cat carrier.  Can you imagine. Loves to be pet and brushed, but is very slowing adapting to a new healthy [...]


Luna is a beautiful grey girl who is about 3 years old.  She found herself with us after being rescued as a stray in an abandoned house. She was then adopted over a year ago with another cat.  The adopters loved her, but Luna just did not get along with the other cat, so they reluctantly decided [...]


Archie is a 6mo Husky/Lab X and is about 35-40lbs. Archie is ALL Husky! He would do best in a home with Husky experience. He is super sweet and lovable and adores people. He is a little prankster and always trying to get your attention in ways he thinks are funny (like chewing on your ankles). [...]
