Denver Animal Shelter has many wonderful animals available for adoption! View our online database of adoptable pets or stop by to see our animals in person. We constantly have new animals coming to the shelter. Keep in mind that adoptions occur frequently and we can not guarantee the availability of an animal listed online. The shelter's adoption package includes the adoption fee, spay or neuter cost, vaccinations, and a one-year pet license. Through 2017, all adoptions will include a free microchip.

Our goal is the find the right pet for your family! Within 90 days of adoption, if your new pet is not working out, return to the shelter and exchange your pet for another furry friend. You will have 30 days from the exchange date to choose another pet.

 

TRANSFER PARTNERS

To assist Denver Animal Shelter in the placement of homeless animals, we have several cooperative partnerships with Colorado rescues groups, humane societies, and shelters. These partners assist us by giving these transfer animals extra care prior to placing them up for adoption.
