Support homeless pets through the Howliday Market & Silent Auction and Beautiful Paws Calendar sales

With the surge in pet adoptions in the Denver metro area throughout the pandemic, many people have added a new furry family member in 2020. The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment’s Denver Animal Shelter (DAS) has made it easy to find just the right gift for pet-loving friends and family this holiday season – with the added bonuses that these shopping opportunities are all online; they support local Denver businesses and homeless pets; and they are ideal for inclusion in holiday gift guides.

The Howliday Market & Silent Auction launches November 5, 2020, at 9 a.m. and will offer pet-themed presents for sale in a variety of price ranges, along with premium gift items – such as Broncos memorabilia, spa gift certificates, hotel stays, pampering gift baskets for pets and people, and more – available to bid on or purchase between now and 5 p.m. December 5.

In addition, pet lovers and the people who love pet lovers can support DAS by purchasing the Beautiful Paws 2021 Calendar, created exclusively for DAS through the generosity of Gaelle Pet Photography, which donated professional photography to the paws-itively gorgeous local dogs and cats voted on by the public to be featured in the final calendars. Two sizes suitable for wall hanging are available (8 ½ x 11 inches for $20, or 11 x 14 inches for $29), both printed in glossy heavyweight stock. Purchase of the Beautiful Paws 2021 Calendar can be made through the Howliday Market site.

Proceeds from both the Howliday Market & Silent Auction and Beautiful Paws Calendar sales will directly benefit the more than 12,000 animals helped annually by DAS and Denver Animal Protection, including veterinary care, spay and neuter services, emergency medical care, behavioral support, nutritious food, warm bedding, community outreach, humane education, and foster care.
