to Bring Denver Area Shelter Animals
A Little Closer to Adoption...
year 40,000 shelter dogs and cats are euthanized in the state
of Colorado. What Best Pets attempts to do is to bring
this problem to the public's attention, as well as to provide
a new way in which to solve it. As the struggle continues to bring
more people into animal shelters, Best Pets will bring
shelter animals to the people!
Best Pets is what a pet store should be. A bright, cheerful
and friendly place to visit with and adopt homeless dogs and cats.
Best Pets is also mobile, which allows us to target high
traffic, high volume areas and events. Working side by side with
the animal shelters in the Denver area, we showcase and place
unwanted animals into permanent homes. Our primary function is
to promote the adoption of the displayed homeless animals while
raising awareness of pet overpopulation.
Best Pets is an independent non-profit organization having
no affiliation with any ONE shelter. We hope to work with as many
shelters as we can to promote animal adoptions and lower euthanasia
rates. The service we provide to the shelters is absolutely
free! We take no percentage of adoption fees and charge nothing
to the shelters who wish to participate. We are here for the animals,
the Shelter to the People!
lovers from the start, Best Pets founders Ted and Dara
have a long history of trying to help their furry or in some cases
2003 Dara started volunteering at the Denver Municipal Animal
Shelter. Seeing the tremendous need for volunteers there, she
"volunteered" Ted and soon they were spending every
Sunday walking dogs, cleaning cages and spending time with the
various and numerous shelter animals. Week after week they couldnt
help but notice so many of the same animals would still be there,
confined to their cages, waiting to be adopted. These were very
adoptable loving animals that were just overlooked and unwanted.
and Ted knew wonderful new owners were out there, they just werent
coming into the shelter. So, instead of waiting for people to
come to the shelter, they decided to take the shelter to the people!
Best Pets Mobile Adoptions
Truck was born. By focusing on the smaller shelters that did
not have a mobile adoption unit of their own, Best Pets could
help by bringing this overlooked group of animals to the attention
of many new prospective owners.
