 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.
