DONATE to the Aurora Animal Shelter

Have you lost your pet? Please call the Aurora Animal Shelter immediately and provide a complete description of your pet and contact information for yourself. Also, click below to see if your pet has been found and brought to the Aurora Animal Shelter.

If you see your pet on our "Lost & Found Pet" section, record its animal ID# and call 303-326-8280 immediately to notify staff you are this animal’s owner. Stray animals without identification at the Aurora Animal Shelter are kept a maximum of three working days for owners to claim them before becoming city property and eligible for adoption or other disposition.

Pets listed immediately below are not available for adoption. They cannot be held for potential adopters via phone calls or e-mail, although you may come to the shelter to meet an animal and place a "hold" on it in person. A "hold" provides first-right-of-adoption if the owner doesn't claim it.

All adopted dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets must be spayed or neutered before going home with their new owners.
