Do something different this Friday night.

Don't forget your daubers!
Join us this Friday at Hamburger Mary's for Denver Cycle Sluts BINGO, a fundraiser for CPR. This is an event for adults over 21 years. If you're not familiar with Denver Cycle Sluts, they are Denver's Original Camp Drag Comedy Troupe. These ladies have sassy mouths and glitter in their beards. It's a little raunchy but a lot of fun.

From the Cycle Sluts website:

Performing members dress in outrageous over-the-top costumes, brightly colored colossal wigs, outlandish over-sized eyelashes, and makeup so thick it’s often put on with a spatula. And don’t forget lots and lots of glitter!  Considered the “Jesters” of the drag-world, The Denver Cycle Sluts thoroughly enjoy raising money for those in need. To date, The Denver Cycle Sluts have raised more than $200,000 for such charitable organizations as animal shelters, children’s foundations, women’s shelters, crisis funds, AIDS-related outreach programs, and numerous GLBT programs and charities – just to name a few.

And this will be the second Bingo night fundraiser for CPR. Last year Cycle Sluts raised over $1000 for us. Don't miss out and arrive early. We'll be at Hamburger Mary's  (708 E. 17th Ave) this Friday, May 13th. Doors open at 7 and balls drop at 8pm. There is a $10 suggested donation for 10 games.
We bought  a new camera. A Nikon Coolpix P100. I chose it because it has a super fast shutter speed without costing an arm and a leg. I can easily take clear pics of our running/playing puppies for our website. I'm so excited!! Now let the Youtube how-to videos begin.
That's it for now. See ya!

A Goodbye to Linda

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the death of our volunteer and friend, Linda Griess.
Linda was well known at the puppy rescue and had been volunteering since June of last year. She attended intakes as our resident puppy washer and adoptions as a senior adoption counselor.  On occasion, Linda would bring her granddaughter Sydney to help at a few of our events and Sydney became well known too.  Linda was fun to be around, easy to approach and easy to trust. She became a fast friend to most of us. We enjoyed spending time with her while eating and gabbing after intakes and at our book-swaps.

I will remember Linda for her hearty laughter, her genuine smile and her sensitive hugs. I will remember the generosity and thoughtfulness that she showed to those around her. I will remember the love that she had for our puppies, for us and for her family.

Linda contracted Bacterial Meningitis earlier this week . She passed away last night at Parker Adventist Hospital surrounded by her family. I will let you know when her service arrangements have been decided.

Please review this website for more information about
bacterial meningitis.

Our girl, Puppy 232

On Febuary 4th puppy 232 was found on the road, hit by car. She was taken to The Animal Care Clinic in Taos, NM for treatment and care. She was half starved and now suffers from constant tremors (see video.) She doesn't seem to notice the difference. She runs (a little strangely), she plays, she cuddles, she is smart, she aims to please, she sits on your lap and watches tv, she asks to go outside so she can lay in the sun, she's very affectionate.
Special Needs Puppy #232
There maybe unknown future complications, she maybe like this for the rest of her life, or she may get better. The Animal Care Clinic has documented her progress and show that her tremors have improved. 
Puppy 232 is available for a $50 spay/neuter deposit and will be at our adoption event in the Petco at Colo. Blvd and I-25 from 11am-2pm. See some photos of her at www.coloradopuppy.org.
Special Thanks to James for the great video!
