Paws on the Go is a rescue transport service committed to saving the lives of homeless companion animals in overcrowded shelters in Colorado and New Mexico. We provide  transportation from shelters to 501(c)(3) rescue organizations in CO, UT, WY and NM. By providing safe transportation (shuttle is fully climate controlled, with an open cab to back with lights and permanent kennels) those animals are given a second chance to find a loving home, animal shelters are able to effectively work with rescue organizations in moving animals when they become overcrowded vs. euthanizing, and rescue organizations are lifted from the burden of finding financial resources and man power to physically move their animals. We primarily help shelters in Colorado and New Mexico and we are open to helping additional shelters that are in need. 

In addition, Paws on the Go actively supports the shelters we transport from and contribute to ending pet overpopulation in those areas. 


Paws on the Go is always looking for compassionate volunteers to join our team. We are looking for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Social Media- Have extra time on your hands and would like to help us promote POTG on social media- we can use your help!
  • Transport Driver- We are always looking for volunteers willing to help drive transports. Knowledge in handling animals and driving for long distances (3-4 hours one way). Transports are done on an as- needed basis and on any given day of the week. This is a very rewarding opportunity to help save animals' lives.

If interested in volunteering please send an email to:
