You are the difference that Denver's homeless and abused animals need! Denver Animal Shelter relies on the generosity of community members to help us provide the best care for the animals that take refuge at our facility. All donations are used to directly help the animals we serve - both at our shelter & in the community:
The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system. As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept internet traffic from non-current browsers that are not using up-to-date encryption protocols. If you are using an older version of your browser, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.
Note*: If you are an internal city customer, please contact the help desk for upgrade assistance.
Honor your pet by adding a tag to Sun Spot’s Community Collar. For just $15, we’ll add a tag to the giant collar in the shelter’s lobby. Please note in the donation form that you’d like to add a tag and we’ll contact you for details!
Monetary donations help shelter staff purchase food and necessities for the shelter animals. If you would like to donate to the shelter, you can do so in person or you can mail in your donation to Denver Animal Shelter at:
