Although our online database is updated daily, we constantly have new animals coming to the shelter and often have more pets at the shelter than appear online. Adoptions happen quickly, so we cannot guarantee the availability of all animals listed below.
Denver Animal Protection (DAP) provides care to more than 12,000 pets each year. DAP operates Denver Animal Shelter (DAS), an open-admissions shelter that is home to more than 6,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.
Purchase a donation of treats or toys for the animals at Denver Animal Shelter from our Amazon Wish List. Amazon will ship the gift directly to the shelter!
