Canine parvovirus (parvo) is severely contagious, preventable virus that is often fatal in young dogs. To help prevent the spread of this deadly virus, Denver Animal Shelter will be offering free parvovirus vaccinations for dogs 1 year and under on a walk-in basis from August 3–31.

Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) cares for more than 8,000 animals each year. Our adoption program gives homeless pets a second chance at finding a permanent, caring home. The Hold Program helps customers reserve an animal—prior to it becoming available for adoption— by making a non-refundable donation at the customer service counter.
