| MISSION STATEMENT
HOPE FOR ANIMALS-CLEAR CREEK RESCUE
Our Mission is to help abandoned, lost and suffering animals through rescue, shelter and public education. We will raise and hold funds for those not able to speak for themselves. Working alone or with other rescue organizations, shelters and animal welfare groups, we will be their advocates for rehoming, veterinary services and humane treatment, regardless of species, breed or age.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT HOPE FOR ANIMALS-CLEAR CREEK RESCUE IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION. WE HAVE NO STAFF AND MOST OF OUR VOLUNTEERS HAVE REGULAR JOBS AND A FAMILY. ALL DONATIONS AND ADOPTION FEES GO DIRECTLY TO THE ANIMALS TAKEN IN BY THE RESCUE. HFA RESCUES MANY OLDER, SICK, AND SPECIAL NEEDS ANIMALS ALONG WITH THE PIT BULLS. WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME CARING FOR THEM AS WELL AS WORKING ON ADOPTING THEM OUT TO WONDERFUL HOMES. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT WE SAVE AS MANY ANIMALS AS WE CAN IN THE TIME FRAME WE HAVE
In 2009 our website address changed from www.cccarl.org to www.hfaccr.org. Please bookmark us and visit often to find your new best friend!

Looking for cats or kittens?
All of our cats are in loving foster homes and are very well cared for. If you adopt a cat of kitten from HFACCR, you will be getting a well socialized cat, which has had their vaccinations, except rabies. All of our cats/kittens have been spayed or neutered and they will have been FIV/FeLV tested and de-wormed. Adoption fees for cats are $75.00 and kittens are $100.00. If you are interested in a cat/kitten from HFA, please contact us or fill out an application at
Don't see the animal you are looking for? New cats and dogs arrive weekly so check back often.
An intact dog can produce two litters a year of 6-10 puppies per litter, which means in six years, one female dog and her offspring, could produce up to 67,000 dogs. An average of 40,000 cats/dogs are euthanized in Colorado each year (that's JUST Colorado!). Please click on www.savecoloradopets.org and find out more about this state sponsored initiative to subsidize spay & neuter programs. Thank you. (taken from Tenderfoot Training web site)
Some rough statistics on shelters:
Out of eight to ten million animals that are in shelters annually, roughly 60% of those dogs are euthanized. Of the other 40% that are adopted out there are 20% of those returned for medical or behavioral problems. Info obtained from National council on Pet Population study and policy, which is a coallition of animal-related organizations, based on estimates from the American Society for the prevention of Cruelty to animals and the American Veterinary Medical association.
