PAWS for Life’s mission is to help lost or unwanted animals; to return lost ones to their owners whenever possible or after having them spayed or neutered, place them in good homes; and to educate the public about intelligent and humane treatment of animals.
Since 1978, PAWS for Life has relied entirely on donations to save thousands of animals.
We invite you to share in our important mission.
PAWS is a private animal shelter. We operate on “limited admission” based on space, staffing and adopt-ability.
The Sandra and Clyde Young wing of the PAWS For Life Animal Shelter has received LEED® Platinum Certification. LEED certification provides independent, third party verification that a building project meets the highest "green building and performance standards. This highest level of Certification is a reward for the Board’s perseverance and commitment to the project. Of course, the best reward is increased animal adoption due to a great facility. The only other LEED® Certified Platinum shelter in Colorado is the Denver Animal Shelter.
