Welcome to Denver Animal Shelter

Denver Animal Protection (DAP) provides animal care and protection services for all of Denver County. We foster the human-animal bond by protecting the safety and welfare of Denver’s animals and citizens. DAP is committed to providing humane care to companion animals; reuniting lost pets with their owners; adopting pets to loving homes; enforcing Denver County animal ordinances; and proactively educating the public about animals, their needs, and DAP's critical role as a community resource. DAP operates Denver Animal Shelter (DAS), an open-admission shelter that is home to more than 7,500 lost and abandoned pets each year. Click here for our hours and location.
