Community Partners

Denver Animal Shelter collaborates with several community partners throughout the metro Denver area. These partners provide support in a variety of ways, such as funding assistance, discounts of supplies, animal training / socializing assistance, volunteer support, or helping us to build awareness in the community. Please support our partners as they support our efforts to help Denver County's neediest animals. Several partners have designed special offers in support of DAS's efforts and give back a portion of their proceeds to directly benefit the animals in our care and the programs we offer.

Animal Assistance Foundation logo


Denver Animal Protection's goal is to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters. Animal Assistance Foundation has generously granted DAP funding to support keeping pets in their homes. Thanks to this grant by AAF, the Denver Animal Shelter can offer pet guardians the following resources to help keep pets with their families:

  • Medical support
  • Pet care items
  • Fencing repair
