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

3 Wonderful Performers, One Amazing Night - Tickets on Sale Now!

An Evening with Emmylou Harris, John Oates and Shawn Colvin
Sunday, August 10, 2014 - Aspen District Theatre


On August 10, 2104 Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter and Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue will present multiple Grammy Award winner and Country Hall of Fame member Emmy Lou Harris, American Songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Oates and Grammy winner Shawn Colvin in a once in a life time live acoustic concert at the Aspen District Theater.

In the tradition of Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe's "Songwriters in the Round" and the Aspen Songwriter's Festival, the show will provide the audience with an intimate and personal experience unlike any other musical performance. Accompanied by their guitars and connecting directly with the audience, this concert will be a rare opportunity to hear them share their stories and get a glimpse into the insights and experiences that inspire these artists to create the songs that become the soundtrack to all our lives.
