The Calendar of Events page is for events taking place across Colorado during this 1st Annual Colorado Week for the Animals. 

Throughout the week, educational institutions, animal shelters, rescue groups, and humane organizations across the state will be hosting scores of wonderful animal-related special events.  Educators, students, businesses and caring citizens will be joining in, creating and planning exciting activities to celebrate and help animals.  

Events will include adoption fairs, spay/neuter awareness events, shelter beautification days, R.E.A.D. dog programs in libraries, activities for the farm animals and therapy dogs visiting hospitals and living-assisted homes.

Also to be included are a salute to our canine military and police dogs, feral cat initiatives, animal law events, educational programs at the zoos, blessings for the animals, and fun-filled festival days for families to come and enjoy food, music and the always amazing animals!

Please become involved! Events are being planned now, and we need animal lovers everywhere to so we can all collectively participate!  See the page "Become Involved" on this website for lots of great ideas and suggestions.
