Donations may be dropped off at our Leslie A. Malone Center or Buddy Center

Whether you organize a supply drive, or bring by extra items you have at home, these gifts help us keep the animals in our care healthy and happy.

Our partner, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, supplies every pet in our shelters and foster homes with high-quality food to meet each animal’s nutritional needs. Any unopened donation of pet food will be provided to pet owners in need through Colorado Pet Pantry.

If you have questions about donating items, please call 303.751.5772.
