Planet Pet (2017)
Planet Pet, originally established in Denver and now located in Wheat Ridge, was created by Dr. Jeff Young of Planned Pethood Plus (PPP) in 2005. Planet Pet was established to save the many abandoned and relinquished animals that he found at his low-cost clinic’s doorstep.
Planet Pet became a refuge for these animals, giving them a loving environment before adopting them out to their new forever homes. Our rescue program is run by our passionate and dedicated staff, volunteers and foster families that work diligently giving these animals reassurance to overcome past issues of abuse, neglect or abandonment.
We have a small, one-on-one environment, which allows the Planet Pet staff to give our furry friends extra love, as well as to get to know these wonderful animals prior to placing them in the right, forever home.
Since opening, Planet Pet has found homes for thousands of cats and dogs. We have also been known to place a few rats, bunnies, guinea pigs and exotic pets too! Because we are a smaller rescue and affiliated with a low-cost clinic, we can remain in the pet’s life, providing guidance and assistance, if needed to new families.
