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.

Bingo, a short haired 4 year old tuxedo girl who came to us from a couple who entered the hospital very quickly.  Unfortunately, their situation was hoard-like with animals living in cat carriers and not very welcoming circumstances.

A wonderful couple up in Ft. Morgan have been doing rescue and like other rescues, have more cats rescued than homes available in their area.  They reached out for help in placing a couple of those cats in rescues that have a wider field of adopters. Stripe is a pretty short haired brown and black tabby [...]

She's well past her quarantine time and healthy as can be. Born October 12th this Libra is gorgeous, sweet, playful, and loyal. Crate trained, house trained, sits but needs some [...]


Malone is a total love bug. He's happiest when he is snuggling with a human. He looks much bigger in photos than in real life. Malone is only about 25 pounds, but he's still game for long walks and running around with dog friends! He is crate-trained and okay sleeping in there. He even chooses [...]


This beautiful shepherd is Touka. (Pronounced Tooka).  He is three years old, 61 pounds, completely vetted and heartworm negative. He played and interacted with the other dogs at the shelter with no problems. He is truly a wonderful sweet dog.   Touka is in a EAPL foster home with another shepherd girl Roxie Anne and they are doing [...]
