Open Admission Animal Shelters and Animal Control
We are very fortunate in Colorado to have excellent animal shelters and a population that cares about pets, in fact the shelter pet is the state pet of Colorado! If you are looking to re-home a relatively young, healthy animal, find your lost pet, or report a found pet these open admission shelters are an excellent resource. Most will take any animal that comes their way and find a loving home for the vast majority of them. City and county animal control is also generally responsible for animals at large, dangerous animals, or concerns about animal abuse or neglect and work closely with the shelters listed below depending on jurisdiction.
2129 W Chenango Ave (Littleton)
Investigates animal cruelty, abuse, and neglect in counties across Colorado.
Limited Admission Animal Shelters and Rescues
The following shelters and rescues are in general, smaller, and thus more limited in space and resources. Like Cat Care Society they can only take in animals when they have the space available. These shelters and rescues may be a better option if you are no longer able to keep a cat that is older or has chronic health conditions such as diabetes or kidney disease.
