There are SO many ways for our community to get involved and help our rescue animals! Below are just some of the great ways we’ve found for people of all ages, abilities, and demographics to help us to help them!

Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue is a licensed, 501c3 nonprofit, foster-based animal rescue in Aurora, Colorado that relies solely community support and donations from animal-loving individuals and businesses to save the lives of hundreds of desperate animals every year. We graciously accept monetary, supply, equipment, land grant, charitable bequest, vehicle, and service donations!

*All donations are Tax Deductible!

Please contact us for donation drop off information!

You can support PRAR every time you shop at King Soopers or City Market with their King Soopers Community Rewards Program. It’s really easy and every time you use your King Soopers loyalty card you help PRAR earn funds for our Orphans!

Here’s How It Works:

1. Go to

2. Log into your account or create an account

3. On the left side menu of your account, click on “Community Rewards”

4. In the search box type “Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue”

5. When you see us pop up, click the blue “Enroll” button

Hold a Supply Drive!

You can also "Donate Your Birthday" to the dogs! Have party goers bring an item for a pet in need in lieu of a gift!

A great project for scouts, schools, clubs, and individuals is to host a donation supply drive for the rescue! If there’s one thing we always need, it’s ALL. THE. THINGS! Literally…  everything! We go through so many supplies so often, that it seems we are constantly begging for help from our animal-loving community. Consequently, when we receive these cherished supplies as donations, we don’t have to purchase them. That means we can put our money to better use, which is usually veterinary bills. $$$  If your group is interested in hosting a supply drive for P.R.A.R. we emphatically encourage you to contact us! We will put you in touch with our community coordinator and get the ball rolling!

Make No-Sew Fleece Tie Blankets! has a wonderful tutorial on how to quickly create these much needed, and appreciated blankets. 

Comfort Critters Tutorial

Making a comfort blanket for a pet going through a lot of stress does not need to be expensive, difficult, or require a lot of time. There’s also no need to take up knitting or crocheting. Tied-fleece blankets are loved by the shelters and pets alike. They are soft & thick, bright & colorful and easy to keep clean. Try one yourself and you just may pick up a new hobby!

Every single P.R.A.R. animal gets their very own blankie to snuggle with and keep, so we are generally in need of blankets! This is a perfect project for kids who want to be involved in rescue, scouts, or even seniors! Likewise, we also accept these blankets sewn for those folks who don’t want to (or can’t) tie the knots. Blankets should be made with new fleece only, 2 layers thick, and can be of various sizes, because pets come in ALL sizes too!

You are able to control, monitor and adjust your fundraiser as necessary.

Help Us To Network The Animals On Social Media!

The more the post is seen, the more animals we find homes and help for. The more animals we find homes for, THE MORE ANIMALS WE CAN SAVE! It’s as simple as that folks!

Employee Matching Gifts Programs!

Company Matching Donations

Employee Matching Gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation.

Ask if your employer matches gifts today!

Donate A Vehicle, or Donate Towards a Vehicle!

Our rescue is currently trying to acquire a safe, reliable transport van. The reality is that a vehicle, such as the Sprinter Van pictured here, or a customized RV could catapult our “saved animal” numbers exponentially! With this valuable tool, we can be ready to mobilize immediately to respond to disaster areas and to assist law enforcement agencies with emergency seizures of neglected and abused animals in hoarding situations. In addition to that, we would be well equipped to make transports to our under-served partner shelters in surrounding states to swoop up the animals who are next to die on the euthanasia list.

We are working hard to save funds to purchase a safe, newer transport vehicle, but with current costs, (before customizing to make it safe for animal transport) The “van fund” has a REALLY long way to go. We would love to partner with a local dealership who would work with us on cost , or even donate a van to the rescue.  Can you even IMAGINE how many more lives we could save?
