Denver Animal Shelter Offers Name Your Price on all Adult Pet Adoptions

Throughout the month of November, Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) is offering a Name Your Own Adoption Fee promotion for all adult (one-year and older) pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles and fish.  

DAS is currently caring for 223 adoptable adult animals, a 33 percent increase from November 2016. DAS also received 19 animals from Puerto Rico that were evacuated from the island following Hurricane Maria. 

All adoptable animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. The regular adoption fees range from $95 to $130 for adult dogs, and $60 to $87 for adult cats. DAS has a robust adoption process for potential adopters that includes the entire family to ensure a good fit. 

DAS is an open-admission shelter that cares for approximately 7,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.

The shelter is located at 1241 W. Bayaud Ave. in Denver and can be reached at 720-913-1311. For more information about Denver Animal Shelter, or to view a list of adoptable animals visit
