Our Mission

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.

PAWS for Life is a "limited admission" NO-Kill Animal Shelter

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.

LEED Certified

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.
