“Meet Your Match” at the Denver Animal Shelter just in time for Valentine’s Day
Third year shelter extends adoption hours, reduces fees Feb. 12  to help adopters meet the perfect pet

Jan. 30, 2012 –Whether you’re single, married, or in a relationship, the Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) wants to help you meet your perfect match this Valentine’s Day. 

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 12, DAS will open for adoptions only, and offer reduced adoption fees ($85 for dogs, $50 for cats, $10 for small animals).  Doors will open at 9 a.m., and adoptions will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Volunteers will be on hand playing match-maker between potential adopters and their future pets. Those looking for a companion for existing pets will be able to bring their pets to the shelter (as long as they are vaccinated) to introduce their future pet to their family early. 

Save a life, give the gift of love, and adopt. 

The Denver Animal Shelter is located at 1241 W. Bayaud Ave, Denver, CO 80223. 

The Denver Animal Shelter and Animal Care and Control is dedicated to providing education for the protection of pets and people. DAS provides humane animal care at the Denver Animal Shelter, reunites lost pets with their owners, finds adoptable pets new homes, and enforces laws relating to animals in the City and County of Denver.
