Denver Animal Shelter adoptions will reopen Saturday May 9th, 2020.

In-shelter adoptions will be available daily, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. 

Adoption visitations must be complete one hour prior to closing each day. Monday-Friday 10:30am-5:30pm and Saturday-Sunday 11:00am-4:00pm. At this time, we are not permitting parties to self-tour through adoptable animals. Current adoptable animals are displayed online and parties can select a maximum of two animals to visit at the shelter.

A mask/face covering, and six-feet social distancing will be required. We respectfully request that anyone who is currently ill (or has any known risk factors related to the virus) not visit Denver Animal Shelter.

Although our online database is updated daily, we constantly have new animals coming to the shelter and often have more pets at the shelter than appear online. Adoptions happen quickly, so we cannot guarantee the availability of all animals listed below.

If you see an animal you like, please stop by for a visit or call 720-913-1311 or 311.
