Community Fundraising

Thank you to our community for supporting Denver Animal Shelter! Your generous support enables DAS to cares for more than 7,000 lost and abandoned animals each year. 

We are very grateful for the many fundraisers carried out by schools and school groups, businesses and individuals to support Denver Animal Shelter. We couldn't do it without you!

If you are interested in hosting a fundraiser, please complete the contact form below to let us know about your event. 


Denver Animal Protection can help support your event if you notify staff at least four weeks in advance by:

  • Sending brochures
  • Adding your event to DAP’s online event calendar (for events that anticipate raising $500 or more)

Please make these requests in the fundraising event form. You must provide all event details, including the address of where to send brochures four weeks in advance.

Due to the number of requests we receive, Denver Animal Protection cannot:

  • Send a DAP representative to participate in all events
  • Distribute posters or literature for your event
  • Supply adoptable animals for your event
  • Send emails or promote your event on social media

Please send all funds to Denver Animal Protection within 30 days of the event.

Send to:

Denver Animal Shelter
Attn: Development Department
1241 W Bayaud Ave
Denver, CO 80223

If you wish to use Denver Animal Protection’s logo and name, all promotional materials must be submitted for approval prior to distribution. Although we will reply as quickly as possible, you can generally expect an approval or request for edits within five business days of sending.

The event must be promoted in a way that avoids the appearance of Denver Animal Protection endorsing any product, firm, organization or service.

Denver Animal Protection reserves the right to decline association with an organization or event for any reason.
