Dumb Friends League is holding its annual Paws to Give fund drive now to help care for more than 25,000 homeless pets this coming year.
“We need your help now more than ever,” said Bob Rohde, Dumb Friends League president and CEO. “Any amount you can give—whether it’s $10, $25, $50 or more—is much appreciated and can make a big difference for the pets and people in our community.”
Financial contributions can be made online at ddfl.org or by mailing a check to Dumb Friends League c/o Paws to Give, 2080 S. Quebec St., Denver, CO 80231.
In addition to making a financial donation, you can also help homeless pets by doing your holiday shopping at the Dumb Friends League: Visit the Sit… Stay… Shop at both shelters for gourmet pet treats, food and supplies such as pet beds, toys, collars and leashes as well as full-color 2011 Dumb Friends League pet-photo calendars, holiday cards and gift cards.
The funds raised will help the Dumb Friends League care for thousands of needy cats, dogs and other small animals. The private, non-profit organization spends approximately $300 for each homeless pet, including shelter, food and medical care. Last year more than 19,000 animals were adopted to new homes or returned to their owners by Dumb Friends League. In addition to adopting homeless pets, the League offers other services, including lost and found, humane education, behavior training, animal cruelty investigations, and donor-subsidized spay/neuter surgeries for pets in underserved areas.
Dumb Friends League has two shelter locations: the main shelter at 2080 S. Quebec St. in Denver and the Buddy Center at 4556 Castleton Court in Castle Rock. For more information about the Dumb Friends League, visit www.ddfl.org or call them at
