Type of Organization
PAWsitive Recovery (PR) is a Denver-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to give people in recovery and animals in shelters a new “leash” on life, helping them heal from the wounds of addiction, trauma, and abuse. They are committed to providing foster care, temporary housing, and supplies for pets when their humans decide to enter a treatment facility or sober living environment. They also facilitate workshops and therapy opportunities for individuals receiving treatment, allowing them to work on their recovery with animals by getting out, exercising, practicing mindfulness, and socializing with abused and neglected animals. To help people in recovery who need community service hours or want to give back, they also offer the opportunity to work with animals in a shelter environment by facilitating partnerships with local animal shelters and rescue facilities.
SPCA International recognizes the vital work that PAWsitive Recovery is doing for animals and people in need and is proud to support its efforts to improve the lives of members of their community.
