Animal Shelter Donations

How You Can Give

You can make a difference for Denver's homeless and abused animals! Denver Animal Shelter relies on the generosity of community members to help provide the best possible care for the animals that take refuge at our facility. All donations are used to directly help the animals we serve - both at our shelter and in the community: 

  • Animal Care & Enrichment
  • Spay/Neuter Services
  • Emergency Medical Care
  • Community Outreach 
  • Humane Education 
  • Foster Care

Giving Options

Monetary donations help shelter staff purchase food and necessities for the shelter animals.
