• Have a Heart for Homeless Pets Telethon

    Last February, we introduced an innovative new format for our annual fundraising telethon—and it was the best telethon ever for the homeless animals at our shelters! This year, we’ll continue to feature all your old favorites: adorable, adoptable pets and touching stories of homeless animals whose lives have been changed because of your generosity. Watch 9NEWS all day Feb. 9 during your favorite newscasts and programs. Contact

  • Estate Planning Seminar

    This free seminar, which will focus on the information we need to help our parents and other senior family members make important decisions during the last years of their lives, will be facilitated by Blake Harris of Mile High Estate Planning. Lunch will be provided.

    Topics include:

    1. Incapacity Planning – Memory Care centers are popping up all over the country because, sadly, many people lose the ability to care for themselves in their golden years. Having the proper documentation in place can save a great deal of time, money, and hassle.
    2. Paying for assisted living – Assisted living is expensive, planning ahead can have significant cost savings for you and your family.
    3. Keep peace and property after your loved one passes – Discussion on how to avoid probate and minimize family conflicts.

    RSVP to this event. Please contact Melannie Grimme at (720) 241-7150 or email with questions.

  • 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

Volunteer opportunities are available for most of our events. For more information, please follow the links to the event pages or contact Megan Newhouse at
