End Of Life

We understand the deep bond between an animal and their humans. We know the loss can be very emotional and difficult. Euthanasia is the humane option for animals that are suffering. At Denver Animal Shelter, we can help.

We recognize that for most people, the end of a loved animal companion's life is one of the most difficult and heart-breaking experiences of their lives. We offer counseling and compassionate care to support you & your pet. We will take your pet to a calm and quiet room and perform the most humane euthanasia.

This service is available only to residents of the City & County of Denver for a $50 fee. You can bring your pet to the shelter during regular business hours. We are unable to accommodate visitation during the procedure; however, we will provide your pet with a calm & caring departure to Rainbow Bridge.
