We foster the human-animal bond by protecting the safety and welfare of Denver's animals and citizens. DAS is committed to providing humane care to companion animals; reuniting lost pets with their owners; adopting pets to loving homes; enforcing Denver County animal ordinances; and proactively educating the public about animals, their needs, and DAP's critical role as a community resource. DAS is an open-admission shelter that is home to more than 7,500 lost and abandoned pets each year.
