The Most Popular Denver Dog Names of 2015
What dog name trends are on the up and up in the mile high city? Pet parents take their naming inspiration from the beauty around them. It should be no surprise that Denver ranks in the top 10 cities nationwide for nature-themed and animal-themed names for their dogs. Many names focus on the chilly weather (Storm, Blizzard, Aurora) and the unique geography (Summit, Avalanche, Rockie), while animal-themed names include Moose, Bronco, and Grizzly. You might even find a Yeti.

Many Rover sitters in Denver donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Denver.
4Paws4Life Rescue4 Paws 4 Life is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue organization dedicated to finding perfect “furever” homes for orphaned pets abandoned in overpopulated high-kill shelters throughout the western half of the U.S.
Animal shelters across the U.S. hold approximately eight million companion animals within their facilities each year. Almost 50% of them are euthanized merely due to lack of resources. Focusing their operations around committed volunteers, our primary objective is to save as many adoptable companion animals from Death Row.
Their efforts also extend to the circulation of knowledge and promotion of initiatives that support the best welfare of our four-legged friends, such as responsible companion animal relationships, the prevention of animal cruelty, and the achievement of a no-kill nation.
Blue Moon Akita RescueSince 1973, Blue Moon Akita Rescue has been quietly going about the business of rescuing Akitas in need, rehabilitating as needed, training as needed. When the dog is ready physically and emotionally, Blue Moon finds them the right home that will, this time, really be forever. They don't place as many dogs as a lot of rescues, but they have one of the lowest return rates you will find; that's because they do our homework on the front end. They love every Akita who comes in here and each Akita who comes to them leaves with an ironclad promise that they will always be there for him, no questions asked.
Colorado Shiba Inu RescueColorado Shiba Inu Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue, training and rehoming of Shiba Inus and Shiba Inu mixes in Colorado.
Colorado Shiba Inu Rescue takes in Shibas from animal shelters statewide, as well as from people who can no longer keep their beloved friend. They do not have a shelter or facility that can be visited by the public. All of their dogs are cared for in loving foster homes. Their directors and fosters are located throughout Denver and Northern Colorado’s front range.
PetAid ColoradoPetAid Colorado provides a safety net for all of Colorado's animals. With diverse programs that seek to address an array of animal health and welfare issues, PetAid Colorado serves as a consensus builder and a visionary organization ready to lead in the future.
The Stink Bug ProjectFrom Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation
Founded in 2010, the Stink Bug Project, a program of Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation, supports families who have a child diagnosed with a serious medical condition. Partnering with the Prison Trained K-9 Companion Program at Colorado Correctional Industries, the Stink Bug Project matches well-trained, loving companion dogs with families, throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
The Stink Bug Project pays for each dog adoption in its entirety which includes the $550 adoption fee from the K-9 Program, as well as, a $200 pet store gift card provided to the family to help them get their new dog set up in their home. While a small portion of Stink Bug’s funds come from the sale of volunteer-made dog biscuits, the majority of money raised for the program comes from donations.
Rocky Mountain Lab RescueRocky Mountain Lab Rescue consists of a small group of volunteers that find and rehome rural and some local Labrador retrievers and Lab mixes. They find their Labs through shelter volunteers out of state, who will alert them to great dogs that are about to be put to sleep. Most of these labs are in "High Kill Shelters". These are shelters that are almost always full because they are located in rural areas, where the dogs run stray, easily mating because they have not been altered. The general population in many areas of the country are still ignorant to the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Many people also find that they can not care for their dog anymore and have no one else to turn to, so they take their dog to a shelter. Many of these "High Kill Shelters" give their dogs about 4-5 days to find a home. If they are not adopted they are euthanized or placed in a gas chamber.
