Denver Animal Shelter is committed to proactively educating the public about animals, their needs, and DAS’s critical role as a community resource. Education is a key component to helping us reach our goal of making Denver the most pet friendly city in the United States. Our commitment to education includes providing presentations on a range of topics to a variety of groups including schools, businesses, community groups, and youth groups.
We offer group tours with optional presentations at Denver Animal Shelter. We are one of the most advanced, environmentally friendly, and cutting edge animal shelters in the country. Our tours offer a look into the work that we do not only in our building, but also how it relates to the work we do out in our community every day.
