Adoptions
All animals adopted must be spayed or neutered before going home with their newly adoptive family.  If you're interested in pet adoption, please visit the Aurora Animal Shelter or click below to view the wide selection of pets available for adoption. If you see a pet you would like to adopt:

Note the animal ID# and call 303-326-8280 for additional information and/or visit the shelter immediately. Pets cannot be held for potential adopters from phone calls or e-mail.

You should also review the Lost and Found pets.  While "Holds" are not taken online or from phone calls, during a visit to the shelter you can place a "Hold" on animal you consider a potential adoption candidate.  The hold indicates you have first right of adoption if the owner doesn't come to claim their pet.


There is a limit on the number of pets allowed, depending on the species:
  • 3 adult dogs - plus one litter of offspring under the age of four months
  • 5 adult cats - plus one litter of offspring under the age of four months
  • 3 ferrets - all of which must be spayed or neutered
  • 2 rabbits - (both must be spayed or neutered)
