It is that time of year again when pooches and their best friends converge at Washington Park in Denver for the annual Furry Scurry. This year’s event is planned for Saturday, May 7. The walk begins at 9 a.m.
According to the Dumb Friends League, by taking part in the Furry Scurry, participants help provide care for more than 20,000 homeless pets each year. The funds raised through registration fees and donations help provide medical care to sick and injured animals, behavior training that allows pets to be adopted more quickly, investigations of animal neglect and mistreatment, and much more.
“As a local, independent nonprofit, the Dumb Friends League relies on events like the Furry Scurry so we can continue to open our doors to every animal in need,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League.
Create a team, gather a few friends, or make it a special one-on-one outing. The registration fee of $50 per person and $25 for children ages 12 and younger includes a Furry Scurry T-shirt. Collecting donations in addition to the registration fee is encouraged and appreciated but not required.
