More Data and Statistics
Adams County Animal Shelter/Adoption Center is an open-admissions shelter and follows the socially conscious sheltering philosophy principles. This means we take in animals regardless of age, breed, health, and/or temperament, and place all healthy and behaviorally-sound animals. We do not euthanize for time or space, and there is no set time limit for how long a pet can remain in our care while awaiting its forever home.
We proudly report data on a monthly basis to Shelter Animals Count, a national database of sheltered dog and cat statistics by county to help provide facts and data-driven solutions to save animal lives.
Adams County Animal Shelter/Adoption Center partners with more than 40 rescue organizations, and numerous animal shelters along the Front Range to place animals with a variety of differing medical and behavior support needs. Together, we are making a difference.
