Denver Dumb Friends League

A nonprofit organization

Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League is a national leader in providing humane care to lost and abandoned animals, rescuing sick, injured and abused animals, adopting pets to new homes, helping pets stay in homes, and educating pet owners and the public about the needs of companion animals. The Dumb Friends League is the largest animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region, welcoming tens of thousands animals to our two shelters. We turn no animals away. At our main shelter in southeast Denver and our Buddy Center in Castle Rock, dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets enjoy the comfort of a nurturing environment in state-of-the-art facilities. The Dumb Friends League: * Provides shelter and care for more than 28,000 lost and abandoned animals every year * Adopts homeless pets to new families * Reunites lost pets with their owners * Investigates animal cruelty and supports animal-friendly legislation * Provides animal behavior assistance through classes, a free telephone helpline and the Internet * Offers free pet-friendly housing referrals throughout Colorado * Educates children and adults about the humane treatment of animals and the importance of spaying and neutering * Offers highly subsidized spay/neuter for owned cats and dogs in underserved communities
