With the help of supporters like you, Denver Animal Protection changed the lives of more than 11,000 animals in 2018! Sadly, many more animals are still waiting for love and happiness. Your gift makes a huge difference to Denver's most vulnerable animals!



To pay for the cost of processing a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request, the agency custodian may charge for the time spent to research and respond to records requests under CORA. Following the Colorado Revised Statutes C.R.S. §24-72-205(6), agency custodians may charge $30 per hour for researching, retrieving and reviewing records. There is no charge for the first hour of research, retrieval and review of records.
