Our Vision

Our vision is a statewide community where all companion animals are free from hunger and thirst; free from discomfort; free from pain, injury and disease; free to express normal behavior; and free from fear and distress – the five freedoms.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support and enhance the five freedoms for companion animals in the state of Colorado through impactful and innovative grant making.
