With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
A microchip identification implant can identify your pet if it loses its collar. Most shelters and veterinary offices can scan pets for this type of ID. The microchip number and your contact information is kept on a shared registry so that you can be contacted when your pet is found.
Microchipping is available during our public reduced cost vaccination clinics. Visit our Vaccinations Page for information about our reduced cost vaccination clinics and for a list of dates when we will not be holding the clinic.
We want to help ensure that if any pet gets lost it will be returned back to its owner.
Denver Animal Protection (DAP) provides care to more than 12,000 pets each year. DAP operates Denver Animal Shelter (DAS), an open-admissions shelter that is home to more than 6,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.
