​Our Mission


Oh Be Dogful Rescue exists to preserve our community's bond with animals through all life's stages and circumstances. Whether it's a place to rest during an unexpected transition or a secure permanent home, our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing sanctuary for animals in need.

Thank you!


A big shout out to Whitney at Pawsitively Pet Boutique in Gunnison for the consistent donation of dog food for our foster dogs.  These donations cover 75% of our foster 's food and provides great quality nutrition for our animals

Thank you!


A huge thank you to our OBD employee Amy Gentzler.  Her specialty training and socializations for our foster dogs has greatly improved the quality of life.

Sanctuary Animals
From Overcrowded Shelters to Crested Butte
Many of our animals come to Oh Be Dogful from over crowded shelters in both Colorado and other near by states.  All of these animals spend a period of quarantine with us and are spayed/neutered before they are ready to find their forever homes.  This process prevents any spread of illness and ensures every animal is healthy and ready to move on.
