Approximately two dozen French Bulldogs rescued as part of a special investigation by Denver Animal Protection will get a chance at a new start during a special adoption event on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Denver Animal Shelter (DAS).
Earlier this month, Denver Animal Protection removed more than 34 animals from a Denver residence as part of a special investigation. Since then, DAS medical and behavior teams have been working nonstop to provide medical care for the dogs and prepare them for rehoming. Many of the dogs will be available for adoption on Aug. 26 on a first come, first served basis.
DAS staff anticipate significant interest in the dogs and encourage those looking to adopt to arrive early and be prepared for longer-than-usual wait times. The French Bulldogs will only be adopted to Colorado residents, and no pre-adoption visits will be available.
To help recoup the costs of the specialty medical care the dogs have received, the requested adoption cost for this event will be $400, which includes the shelter’s standard adoption fee and a suggested donation. This care includes:
Prospective adopters should also be aware that French Bulldogs can require special ongoing care with regards to medical and behavior needs. For those not able to adopt but still eager to help, the shelter is also accepting monetary donations to help defray the costs of animal medical care, dental care and rehabilitation.
DAS is an open-admission shelter that cares for approximately 7,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.
The shelter is located at 1241 W. Bayaud Ave. in Denver and can be reached by phone at 720-913-1311 or online at www.DenverAnimalShelter.org.
