Adopt a dog! Or maybe a cat. The point is: The Denver Animal Shelter is discounting its pet adoption fees to $14 for all animals one year and older this weekend, Feb. 11 and Feb. 12, in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Adoptable Animals | Denver Animal Shelter - City and County of Denver
All dogs are placed AFTER the applicant has been approved, which includes reference checks, a home visit, and a meet-and-greet with the dog. Home checks can be performed by someone associated with another reputable rescue in your area. We may also have an active volunteer who has family or reliable friends in other states who is willing and able to perform a home check. We will NOT ship any dog to any applicant sight-unseen. After an applicant is approved, they must travel to the Colorado foster home’s city/town to meet the dog. If the applicant wants to pursue adopting the dog at that point, an adoption contract is signed, the adoption fee is paid and the dog can leave with the applicant. The adoption contract states if a dog does not work out for any reason, it must be returned to the rescue. In this case, the new owners MUST travel back to the Denver area with the dog.
