Here are some of the charities we support both locally and nationally, and what they’re doing to stand out:
Safe Harbor Lab Rescue, an all-volunteer rescue organization located in Golden, Colorado, has rescued, fostered and adopted Labrador Retrievers to loving homes since 2002. Our rescued Labrador Retrievers come to us from Colorado and surrounding states. The rescued Labs receive veterinary care and are fostered in the Denver area before they are adopted.
The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.
It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF)to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.
While we mourn the loss of our service men, lost in the line of duty, often times their families are forgotten. Knights of Heroes hosts families with common losses allowing them to share experiences and build relationships while increasing public awareness and ensuring that families with losses are not forgotten with the passage of time. KOH empowers children who have lost their fathers during military service by providing positive adult mentorship, character development, and lasting friendships, forged during an annual wilderness adventure camp.
The Wounded Warrior Project Mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. With the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, WWP is the hand extended to encourage warriors as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs. Offering a variety of programs and services, WWP is equipped to serve warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. ASPCA® was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend their anti-cruelty mission across the country, they are recognized as a national animal welfare organization.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
Working with our compassionate community, the mission of the Denver Dumb Friends League is to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. When their organization was founded in 1910, it was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called “Our Dumb Friends League.” In those days, the term “dumb” was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, the Dumb Friends League, headquartered in Denver, is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
