Adopt a Pet

Denver Animal Shelter has many wonderful animals available for adoption! View our online database of adoptable pets or stop by to see our animals in person. We constantly have new animals coming to the shelter. Keep in mind that adoptions occur frequently and we can not guarantee the availability of  an animal listed online. The shelter's adoption package includes the adoption fee, spay or neuter cost, vaccinations, and a one-year pet license.

Transfer Partners

To assist Denver Animal Shelter in the placement of homeless animals, we have several cooperative partnerships with Colorado rescues groups, humane societies, and shelters. These partners assist DAS by giving these transfer animals extra TLC prior to placing them up for adoption.

Gerbils (A221574 and A221575) 
 Two adoptable Gerbils from DAS
DAS currently has two gerbils available for adoption. The black gerbil (A221574) is a male and the white gerbil (A221575) is female. The gerbils are very interested in people and enjoy running on their exercise wheel. They do like to chew on plastic, so they need to have metal or porcelain dishes. 

The gerbils are available for $15 each.
