About the Rescue

El Paso County Canine Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit dog rescue based in Colorado Springs, CO and working all along the front range of the Rocky Mountains.  We work to rescue dogs from Texas, Kansas, and New Mexico that are in danger of euthanasia in high-kill shelters.  After transport to Colorado, our dogs are placed in loving foster homes and are fully vetted with vaccinations and spay/neuter prior to adoption. 


Our goal is to provide as many homes to as many

dogs as possible.  We strive to place our animals

into their FURever homes!!    


Bethany Jones

Bethany has always had a passion for animals and people, and since moving to Colorado Springs, she has had to opportunity to work with local dog rescues.  After working with another rescue for a while, she and Jaime decided to open their own rescue.  She and her husband are Navy veterans and they both work in healthcare as well as dog rescue.  So they get to pursue their passions for both dogs and people!

Isabella's Legacy

Isabella was Jaime's best friend for a very short three years.  During her short life, Isabella was a rescue advocate, she was always at Jaime's side during rescue events, greeting dogs as they came off the truck and providing a calm presence for the stressed, homeless dogs. She was an outgoing soul that never met a stranger, she was loving with everyone, human and canine. She made such an impact on our lives, that she became the face of El Paso County Canine Rescue and she is the dog you see on our logo.

 Unfortunately, her life was cut short due to osteosarcoma in her rear leg.  After several attempts to treat her cancer, she lost her battle just before Christmas 2018.  We would love if you would make a donation to the Morris Animal Foundation in Isabella's name to find better treatments and, hopefully, a cure for this terrible disease.
