Dumb Friends League
2080 S Quebec St.
Denver, CO 80231
(303) 751-5772

Dumb Friends League was founded in 1910, it was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called “Our Dumb Friends League.” In those days, the term “dumb” was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, the Dumb Friends League, headquartered in Denver, is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

1005 Galapago St.
Denver, CO 80204
(303) 595-4917

MaxFund is a no-kill animal shelter and has two different locations for cats and dogs. They hold an adoption process where the staff works to make sure you will be a good fit for the pet you are bringing home. These processes are in place to ensure that you will be that forever home that every pet needs. Additionally, MaxFund has a wellness center that provides low cost care for your pet throughout his or her life.

Denver Animal Shelter
1241 W. Bayaud Ave.
Denver, CO 80223
(720) 913-1311

As Denver’s main municipal animal shelter, the Denver Animal Shelter is always a busy spot, tending and caring for the many lost and abandoned pets that are found in Denver each year. More than 8,000 dogs and cats find themselves coming through the doors of this facility. With adoptions, lost pets, pet licensing and veterinary care, there is a lot you can take advantage of at this shelter. It is also conveniently open seven days a week now, so you can spend more time finding your new pal.

Cat Care Society
5787 W. 6th Ave.
Lakewood, CO 80214
(303) 239-9680

The Cat Care Society is a smaller cage-free shelter that is dedicated to the care of homeless and abused cats. Since 1981, this specialized shelter has given the felines of Denver a cage-free environment for them to roam and prepare for their new forever homes. As a smaller shelter, only about 45 adult cats are cared for at a time and that limit is kept until each cat finds a new and permanent home. With so many cats in need of care, it is important that the cats in the care of this shelter find homes so new cats can be taken in.

Big Dogs Huge Paws
5855 Stapleton Drive N.
Denver, CO 80216
(303) 322-4336

As another specialty shelter, Big Dogs Huge Paws is dedicated to the care and adoption of larger breed dogs. Why focus on only larger breeds? Many people love adopting puppies but once the dog reaches full size, a lot of times they are found to be too expensive or too big and are abandoned for a variety of reasons. The breeds found at Big Dogs Huge Paws include Great Pyrenees, Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Mastiffs, Newfoundlands, Irish Wolfhounds and Scottish Deerhounds. It is because of this specialization that Big Dogs Huge Paws has enabled large breed rescue for animals all over the country.
