Denver will activate Carla Madison Recreation Center to expand overnight shelter capacity for people experiencing homelessness Nov. 29 to Nov. 30. Those in need of shelter should be directed to the city’s “front door” access points for shelter. All rec centers will continue to serve as daytime warming centers during normal business hours.
All dog and cat adoptions come with spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip and a one-year pet license.
*Senior Discount (65 and over) — 50% off pet adoptions
*Current Military and Veterans Discount — 50% off a one-time adoption fee
Our goal is to work with you to find the right pet for your family and lifestyle. If within 90 days of adoption your new pet is not the right fit, an adoption counselor will work with you to find a better match for your family.
The Hold Program helps customers reserve an animal — prior to it becoming available for adoption — by making a non-refundable donation. Please visit us at 1241 West Bayaud Ave, Denver 80223 during business hours to place a Hold.
DAS adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations and one-year pet license. All animals currently available for adoption can be viewed here.
