Community Partners

Denver Animal Shelter collaborates with several community partners throughout the metro Denver area. These partners provide support in a variety of ways, such as funding assistance, discounts of supplies, animal training / socializing assistance, volunteer support, or helping us to build awareness in the community. Please support our partners as they support our efforts to help Denver County's neediest animals. Several partners have designed special offers in support of DAS's efforts and give back a portion of their proceeds to directly benefit the animals in our care and the programs we offer.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals(ASCPA) has provided tremendous support for the Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) through the funding of several grant projects. Over the past two years, these generous grants have made the following projects and trainings possible:

  1. Lil Bub’s Big Fund Special Needs Animals Grant - $1,000 grant awarded to help place special needs animals that are easy to love, but hard to adopt due to special medical needs. The grant allows DAS to provide as needed adoption incentives such as waived adoption fees, special food diet, medication, and blood work specific to each animal.
  2. Adoption Ambassador's Grant - Grant awarded to build an Adoption Ambassadors Program, where animals are adopted directly from foster homes.
