The Aurora Animal Shelter has been serving the citizens of Aurora since 1950s. The shelter was originally created to help control the rabies epidemic in Colorado by enforcing the state laws requiring pet owners to vaccinate their dogs and cats against rabies, a potentially fatal disease transmitted from animals to people.
Since then we have grown to a full-service, open-admission animal shelter committed to protecting the animals of Aurora by providing shelter and care to any animal that comes to us.
