Aspen Animal Shelter

The Aspen Animal Shelter is a privatized, self-sustaining animal rescue that combines a boarding kennel, a grooming salon and a pet shop to generate the income needed to provide sanctuary for the homeless dogs and cats of Aspen, Pitkin County and beyond. We shelter the occasional bird and rabbit as well. Every homeless pet is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We are open every day of the year from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. We welcome and encourage you to visit and socialize with the animals. Please call us at 970.544.0206 with questions or comments, or email us at aspenanimalshelter@gmail.com.
