The idea behind adding this group of transfer dogs was simple: They weren't getting adopted at the public Adams County Animal Shelter, but maybe they'd have a better shot at Boulder's privately run and resource-flush branch, so effective in pairing pets with owners that dogs spend an average of just six days in the kennel before finding homes.A Home 4 Spot Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization that provides foster care and medical treatment for dogs while finding them permanent homes. The organization was founded in 2009 by a Las Vegas resident and has saved more than 2,000 dogs from being euthanized. As of 2012, it had raised more than $500,000 for animals that would have been killed otherwise.
