Welcome to Our Website!

Apple Wood Rescue, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, public charity that will accept Chinchillas, Rats, Hamsters, Mice, Gerbils, Sugar Gliders, Hedgehogs and Degus in the Denver metro area. We were founded on April 24, 2009 by Jinna Adamson and are located in the heart of Denver, Colorado. An article published in the Spring 2011 editions of the Mayfair Neighbors Inc. and Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle details how and why Jinna decided to dedicate her life to these small and often forgotten animals.

Our Mission at Apple Wood is to provide rehabilitation, shelter, and proper care to all small exotic mammals in need, while also focusing on their mental health to help ensure rehoming success. We are a no kill sanctuary.

As of December 2013, we have placed 129 small animals into their fur-ever homes with 55 of those placements happening in 2013. We are growing very fast and are extremely excited that we have recently moved into a larger more suitable location for our critters.

If you have a small exotic mammal of another species, please refer to our Links page to find that species rescue in Denver. If your species of animal is not listed, please contact us and we will work to help find a safe place for the animal in question.
