A Soft Place to Land, Inc. is dedicated to giving a voice to
creatures who have no voice of their own.
A Soft Place to Land is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer foster home based dog rescue based in Ft. Collins. We have a special place in our hearts for special needs and seniors and these special babies tend to take precedence over other dogs needing a rescue option. Senior and special needs dog do require a bit of care and tend to be in rescue longer than younger, more adoptable dogs so we are always looking for long term fosters and sponsors for our special kids. If you would like more information about fostering please visit the foster care tab. If you would like to sponsor a dog in need you can use our donate button on our homepage or visit http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/CO371.html to see our available pets and choose a dog you specifically want to sponsor.
City Park Animal Clinic
Our relationship with City Park Animal Clinic began before the rescue. Dr. Frucci was our founder’s personal vet so when she started the rescue she started dragging in the sad cases she was getting and asking Dr. Frucci to “fix it.” He thought she was a bit crazy, and still does, but he is invested in helping these dogs as the rest of us! Dr. Fucci has been a veterinarian for over 30 years and lends that experience to each case we bring into his clinic as he and his staff closely monitor all of our special needs pups and seniors.
“Norma is doing really well! She has been to Steamboat twice and all over town, mostly to Henry’s school. Thank goodness she’s great in the car! She’s getting used to our routine and likes Henry a lot.
She loves toast, loves it! Just before work, I scatter treats all over the kitchen and she eats them. She sleeps on my side of the bed and during the day she’s secured in the kitchen, where her kennel is, unless Aubrey takes her out to pet her.
Our whole family just loves her, and she them!”
– Christie, Aubrey, Gaven and Henry
“Trixie has been part of our family for 6 months now and our family couldn’t be happier. Bonnie was very jealous of Trixie in the beginning and pushed her around but, now Trixie stands up for herself quite nicely. They both sleep in bed with us and cuddle side by side.
Mostly I wanted you to know how much we love Trixie and that she has become a very important member of our family. Ricky and I couldn’t imagine life without her.
Thank you so much for bringing Trixie into our lives.”
– Annette and Ricky
