DOGSASPEN is Aspen, Colorado's local, up-to-date resource for everything dog...and cat, too. We also dabble in birds, horses, and other valley animals. We keep you posted on pet-friendly events and activities, businesses offering the best pet-related products and services, and adoptable pets still looking for the perfect home.

DOGSASPEN offers information about the Aspen Animal Shelter, the Aspen Boarding Kennel, Aspen's Pet Shop and Grooming Salon, and our non-profit Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter. We are always adding new items so stay tuned!

DOGSASPEN is focused on creating awareness and enthusiasm for the Aspen Animal Shelter, a privatized, for-profit, self-sustaining, no-kill shelter which is primarily supported by income created via The Aspen Boarding Kennel. The shelter provides sanctuary for the homeless dogs and cats of Aspen, Pitkin County and beyond. We do house the occasional bird or rabbit as well. Each homeless pet is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Volunteers are always welcomed, and encouraged, to walk the dogs, brush the cats, or even wash the dirty bowls. Please call the shelter at 970-544-0206 with questions or comments, or email us at

2013 Dancing For Dogs and Cats





Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter held a great event on Saturday, July 13th, for dinner, drinks, disco dancing and live and silent auctions under the stars in beautiful Snowmass, Colorado.

Seth Sachson, Director of the Aspen Animal Shelter, hosted the event at his beautiful ranch in Old Snowmass, It was so much fun and we raised funds to help many, many hundreds of animals--dogs and cats--to be rescued from kill-shelters and many others to be neutered to prevent future euthansias.

For Acknowledgements to the many participants, go to Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter/Events/Past Events on this web site.


Louisa offers a free 30-minute consultation
for those who have adopted their dogs

private dog training lessons on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the fall.

FREE initial consult for all
shelter-adopted dogs.
