**IMPORTANT** Due to technical difficulties, our online pet listings are not showing and updating on the website (as of April 25, 2018). We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please come to our shelter at 1241 W Bayaud Ave to view lost of adoptable pets. This message will be removed once our services are restored.
Lost pets brought to the Denver Animal Shelter without identification are held for five calendar days. Animals with identification are also held for five calendar days while their owners are contacted. Our online database is updated daily. After the five day hold, animals will be evaluated for adoption or transfer. Animals listed below may already be available for adoption if they have been at Denver Animal Shelter beyond the five day hold period.
If you see your animal on our website, come immediately to the shelter or contact us by calling 720-913-1311 or 311. Visit the Redemption Process and Fees page for information about reclaiming your pet.
