Annie's Orphans, located in beautiful Durango Colorado, is the oldest No-Kill Shelter in the Four Corners Area.  We began in 1985 as a home for retired sled dogs, but quickly re-strategized to become an all-breed rescue.  We were incorporated as a Not-for-Profit foundation in 1997, & have since become a safe-haven for the abandoned, neglected & abused pet population throughout the greater Four Corners area. 

Annie's Orphans now has a maximum capacity of 70 dogs, & thanks to the support of our community, we are able to maintain our No-Kill status.  However, due to the increasing number of rescued animals - & an increasing population of older, traumatized, & ill animals in residence - we could definitely use some help.  

Our Mission

The goal of Annie's Orphans is to offer abused, discarded and hard to adopt dogs a safe haven until good adoptive homes can be found. Unfortunately, some arrivals have chronic health problems or are too traumatized to adjust easily to a new family. These hard luck stories often find a home for life at Annie's.

Our Needs, How You Can Help

Annie's Orphans Donation Wish-List

Food and veterinary care for long-term residents amounts to a larger expense than can be supported through the sale of Black Feather Jewelry.  We very much appreciate the generous donations from our community & our loving supporters, all of you!  Financial assistance is always needed & welcomed for the shelter to continue providing a safe home for our residents. Various supplies and materials are also an ongoing need at our facility. Please see our "Wish-List" or access our Donate page.

At Annie's, we always have 3 main needs:

1. Volunteer!
2. Give!
3. All leading to the main goal: ADOPT!
