Adoptable Pets

Denver Animal Shelter has so many cuddly animals who would love to find homes for the holidays!
Help us make a Santa Paws connection by viewing our adorable adoptable pets online


Ella A309175: Ella is an energetic and fun loving girl that is eager to find a home of her own! Ella loves to run and play, and is seeking a family that can provide ample opportunities for exercise. She is best suited for a home with children that are at least 12 years old and without cats. She loves to play with other dogs but just needs a fur sibling that tolerates her play style.


Nessie A316738: Nessie can be picky about her friends.  She loves to be pet around the cheeks and neck, and will purr, roll onto her side, and sometimes drool out of pure joy.  Nessie does not love being picked up but will snuggle with you on her own time.


Dale A318552: Dale is a shy boy that will need a little longer than most kitties to settle in to his new home.  He is an affectionate guy who likes pets.  If you’re looking for a cat that will be yours and yours only, this is the one for you!


Isaac the Rat A319291: (he has tons of little baby rat friends that are all available for adoption): Isaac is only 6 weeks old. He is a sweet baby rat that loves to play with his other siblings. He is looking for someone who really knows and appreciates rats. He feels like he is one of a kind and would love to show you his personality today!

*ATTN: Pets can make wonderful holiday gifts, but don’t make this a surprise. Take family members, including a dog you may already own, to meet prospective pets. If you really want the surprise, consider a Denver Animal Shelter gift certificate with a stuffed animal as a temporary stand-in. Then, go pick out your new pet after the holiday craze winds down.
