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


Allie is a gentle, sweet, 12-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 quiet, gentle, 12-year-old Pit Bull mix who gets along well with 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.


Orion is a happy, friendly, handsome, 10-year-old, retired sled dog who gets along well with people and other dogs. He loves exploring new sights and smells via long walks on the leash. Orion is transitioning from a working dog to a pet, and will require a responsible, knowledgeable home.


Sue is a sweet, gentle, 11-year-old husky mix who gets along well with everyone. She loves the company of other dogs and enjoys long walks on the leash. Sue is a retired sled dog who will require a responsible, knowledgeable home.


Sophie is a sweet, sensitive, gentle, 8-year-old Cattle dog mix who gets along well with other dogs. Sophie is extremely wary of new people, but she is an affectionate and loyal companion once you have earned her trust. Due to her suspicious nature, Sophie will only thrive in a quiet, responsible, knowledgeable, loving home in which she is set up for success.


Texas is an active, athletic, 3-year-old Pit bull mix who gets along great with other dogs. He is initially wary of new people, but warms up once he gets to know you. Beyond being wary of new people, Texas is territorial  of his people and his property. In short, Texas will require an extremely responsible, knowledgeable home.

ZuZu and Petals

ZuZu and Petals are happy, friendly, gentle, sweet, 7-year-old sisters who get along well with everyone. They look like Beagle mixes with a possible splash of Cattle dog, but we don’t know for sure. ZuZu and Petals would love to be adopted together.



Holland is a happy, friendly, active, athletic, 1-year-old Pit bull mix who gets along well with people and other dogs.

Frankie, Levi and Ziggy

Frankie, Levi and Ziggy are happy, fun, adorable, 8-month-old Jack Russell siblings who get along great with people and other dogs.
