Denver Animal Protection (DAP) empowers Denver's communities to live better, longer by protecting people and pets.
DAP provides animal care and protection services for all of Denver County. We foster the human-animal bond by protecting the safety and welfare of Denver's animals and citizens. DAP is committed to providing humane care to companion animals; reuniting lost pets with their owners; adopting pets to loving homes; and proactively educating the public about animals, their needs, and DAP's critical role as a community resource.
DAP operates Denver Animal Shelter (DAS), an open-admission shelter that is home to more than 7,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.
Denver Animal Foundation is a 501c3 partner who generously accepts donations for Denver Animal Protection.
