We understand that making the decision to rehome your pet is difficult.
Denver Animal Protection's goal is to work with pet owners, empowering you to take an active role in determining the best outcome for your pets. We encourage all pet owners to consider other options for help or private rehoming prior to surrendering your pet to our shelter. While we never turn away a pet in need, we are also here to help you keep your pet.

DAP offers compassion and understanding to owners who relinquish their pets and a warm welcome to the animals that are being entrusted to our care.
