The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue

The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue is a grass-roots 501(c)3 non profit organization that operates solely from fundraising, income derived from a variety of human and animal classes, and the goodwill of many volunteers. Our sole purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs (and cats) at risk, regardless of breed or mix, behavior or medical issue. We save animals from euthanasia (from many sources) and foster them for as long as it takes to find a home.

Love No Matter What
The Story of The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue from Mile High Dog

Please join our MEETUP GROUP: Denver Dog Behavior with Misha May Foundation. and help us spread the word about positive dog training!

Misha, The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue's namesake, died on November 14th, 2000. Misha was on her way to be relinquished at a shelter when she was rescued. She found her way to Lorraine and that was the beginning of the story.

The Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue's job will never be done. We wish we had a beautiful large facility to house as many animals as we receive calls to rescue. Sadly, that's not the case. We do the very best we can. We have dogs that have been with us for five years because we haven't found the perfect home.

We appreciate help in any way, whether that is a tax-deductible donation, volunteering, fostering, adoption, taking classes or donating your time or product/service to one of our many events.Please contact us if you think you might be able to help.

    Grey's Story

  • On May 8, 2007 Grey's surgery was performed by cardiologist, Dr. Karen Sanderson of Alameda East Veterinary Hospital who discounted her services. See entire story here.

  • In each interview I was asked why Grey? Why spend so much money on him when there are so many animals who need help? I was pleased to be asked that question as it allowed me to talk about the mission of Misha May. I mainly highlighted 4 things:
    1) Misha May attempts to help whichever dogs show up for us to help. The dog doesn't need to fit any criteria or standard like breed or age or personality or health; Misha May accommodates the dog, and who he or she is. This has meant holistic cancer treatments, long-term behavior training; puppy developmental education, heartworm treatments, etc. Or, as in this case, specific fund raising for Grey's surgery.

    2) We treat dogs as if they are owned, not homeless. The difference in perception means we assume there is a home waiting for them and that if we do what is needed it will happen. We demonstrate that rescue can be not just humane but actually pleasant for the animals. They become and remain extremely adoptable. So far, so good!

    3) Because we treat our dogs as part of the Misha May family, we provide a model, which encourages and supports the public to do the same. We don't discard our pets, euthanize them, give up on them, mistreat them, or abandon them. We believe it is unacceptable to treat a pet in that manner. We will take a dog back any time during his or her life.

    4) In helping each individual dog, we always help additional dogs. In this situation, for example, we set out to raise money for Grey, but between donations and discounts, we most probably will have more than Grey needs. Grey has said he will be most happy to share with our other rescues. Grey was helped and then helped others. We like that very much!

About Lorraine May, Founder and Executive Director

My reason for being is to improve life for dogs. In this ideal world, there would be no homeless, neglected or abused ones. And there would be no need for rescue, nor for families to give up their pet not knowing whether he or she might find another home. People often ask me how I got started in training, behavior and rescue. Although I have studied and Programd, my motivation and education have primarily come from the dogs themselves. My calling is to understand dogs, rehabilitate them, and then write about the process. In the beginning, I was compelled to rehabilitate my own dogs rather than consider giving them up. As it happens with many of the dogs who pick us, I loved them dearly, but wasn't entirely pleased with how they behaved.
