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





Adoptable Dogs


Sam is an adorable, affectionate, 10-year-old Pit Bull/Boston Terrier mix who gets along great with all people, including kids, but can behave aggressively towards other dogs. However, Sam has occasionally accepted large, stable, male dogs into her world.


Allie is a gentle, sweet, 11-year-old Black Lab/Pit Bull mix who is awesome with all people, including children, but she can behave aggressively towards other dogs. Allie will thrive in a knowledgeable, responsible home as the only pet.


Callie is a gentle, sweet, 11-year-old Pit Bull mix who gets along great with all people, but will require a knowledgeable, responsible home because she occasionally meets other dogs that rub her the wrong way.

Bandit and Thor

Bandit and Thor are gorgeous, happy, friendly, 3-year-old Siberian Husky siblings who get along well with other dogs. Due to a severe lack of socialization when they were young, they are initially wary of new people, but are willing and eager to make friends with those who devote time and display patience in order to win their trust.


Charlie is a happy, friendly, handsome, athletic, three-year-old German Shepherd mix who gets along well with people and most female dogs. Unfortunately, Charlie does not get along with other male dogs, and he does not like cats.


Cosmo is a gentle, sweet, extremely shy, 4-year-old Husky and Hound mix who was a sled dog in her previous life. Cosmo will do best in a quiet, patient, nurturing home where she can come out of her shell at her own pace.


Pixie is an athletic, affectionate, 4-year-old Alaskan Malamute who gets along great with people, but can be dominant with other dogs. Thus, Pixie will require a knowledgeable, responsible, active home.

Adoptable Cats


Princess is a sweet, pretty, 9-year-old cat who will do best in a quiet household with no other pets.


Domino is a happy, friendly, extroverted, 10-month-old, male cat who gets along well with everyone.


Torino is a gentle, mellow, friendly, 11-year-old, male cat who gets along well with everyone.


Church is a handsome, semi-feral, 5-year-old, male cat who will do best in a knowledgeable, responsible home.
