  • Paws to Give™ Shelter Giving Experience

    Each holiday season, patrons are invited to our three facilities—the Quebec Street Shelter in Denver, the Buddy Center in Castle Rock and the Harmony Equine Center in Franktown—to fill out a “paw” decoration with a donation amount and message that is displayed on our walls. Children and adults alike can write something in honor or memory of a special pet or horse. Donations of supplies are also welcome. This is a great time for parents to visit the shelter with their children, view the animals in our care and share the spirit of giving. Contact iking@ddfl.org.
