We Know You Love The Animals Like We Do

Thank you for visiting The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue website! There is something here for everyone, whether you are looking to volunteer, foster, adopt, take a class, go to an event or donate. We appreciate anything you can do for our dogs and cats.

Our Commitment

  • We believe that each individual dog and cat, regardless of breed or mix, age or issue, or amount of time needed, deserves the opportunity to find a forever home. We rehabilitate medical and behavior problems, and facilitate healing. We are committed to the forever placement of each animal for whom we assume responsibility. 

  • We are committed to a compassionate society where euthanasia, or a ‘good death‘, is reserved for those animals who are suffering without hope, as well as for those animals whose dangerous behavior is truly beyond rehabilitation.

  • We are committed to using healing, compassionate methods, not force, with the animals we rescue as well as any animals we help.

  • We are committed to educating ourselves and others in canine behavioral science, relying upon teaching and communicating with dogs, rather than on frightening, dominating or intimidating them.

  • We are committed to each individual dog and cat, and we celebrate the mutually beneficial bond that they share with humans.

MISHA MAY FOUNDATION IS DENVER'S #1 BEST DOG TRAINING 3 YEARS IN A ROW!



Welcome to Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue website!

Our classes are appropriate for rescued dogs as well as non-rescued dogs. We successfully teach all breeds, sizes, ages and issues.

We do not have a physical location. We use foster homes for all of our animals. We use rented or donated space for our classes. We also offer dog behavior sessions, animal communication and reiki in your home.

We save hundreds of dogs through our community training programs, which offer free spots to fosters from any shelter or rescue, as well as our free puppy socialization classes.
