Several two-legged friends helped raise more than $400,000 to help their four-legged friends through the Denver Dumb Friends League “Have a Heart for Homeless Pets Telethon” on 9NEWS last month.
Supported by Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation, DDFL is the largest animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region. The organization provides shelter, care and training programs for homeless animals.
Last year, the Dumb Friends League saved more than 19,000 homeless pets through specialized medical care, foster care and behavior training. Funds raised from this year’s event will help the DDFL provide care to all animals who walk, pounce or gallop through its doors.
Donations can still be made online or by calling 303-751-5772.

Bring your dog to the 2015 Furry Scurry dog walk at Washington Park on May 2 to benefit the Denver Dumb Friends League. The walk begins at 9 a.m.
Every sort of breed and mix are there with their owners for a two-mile walk, followed by local food trucks, contests, demonstrations and more than 150 pet-related vendors at the “Flealess Market.”
Last year, the Dumb Friends League saved more than 17,500 homeless pets, many of which received vital medical care, behavior training and foster care. Funds raised at the Furry Scurry allow the Dumb Friends League to continue to open its doors to any animal in need—whether they are old, ill, injured, unwanted, neglected, lost or in need of special care.
Thirty discarded breeding dogs from puppy mills in the Midwest were transferred to the Dumb Friends League over the past two days.
Volunteers from National Mill Dog Rescue near Colorado Springs rescued the dogs from puppy mills across the Midwest over the weekend. The dogs brought to the Dumb Friends League include Yorkies, miniature poodles, terriers, miniature pinschers, and a mix of other small breeds. The dogs vary in age from approximately 4 months to 10 years.
“We are blessed that we have the resources and the space to help pets outside of our own community when the need arises,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League. “In an urgent situation like this, it’s wonderful that animal welfare organizations here in Colorado come together to assist vulnerable pets like these puppy mill dogs.”
