Pet Resources

  2. Barkley's Hope

    (970) 424-3390

    713 Birdie Drive, Grand Junction, CO 81506

    Work with at-risk people with (at risk) pets, usually dogs because they have a different set of needs especially with addicts and alcoholics. Our core belief is if you help the animal, you help the human. We connect the dots for services. After we treat the animal we work with the individual one on one if they want help getting out of a bad situation. We work with local resources who can foster a pet short term for them, give them 1st shots but we are not vets so we can’t offer medical advice and don’t do spays or neuters. We work off of donations that average about $10 an animal.
