The Dumb Friends League (where I got my buddy Pax, pictured left) is offering a SUPER deal for the next few days.
The Dumb Friends League, in the hope of finding forever homes for hundreds of adoptable animals, is throwing out regular adoption fees for three days from June 28-30. The special promotion asks patrons to name their own price for any kitten, dog, small mammal or horse adoption. Fees for cats one year and older will continue to be waived through June 30.
The adoption special will be offered at both shelter locations—the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock—as well as the adoption center at Northfield-Stapleton and on its mobile unit, the Pet Care-avan. The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center will honor the special on Saturday, June 30, during adoption hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“This is a wonderful way to say thank you to members of the community for all of their unwavering support,” said Theresa Geary, vice president of operations. “This shows you really can’t put a price on the love and devotion that each and every animal has to offer.”
Currently, the Dumb Friends League has more than 1,000 animals in its care, with close to half of those currently available for adoption. There is a minimum $1 donation required at the time of adoption, though a larger donation is always welcome.
All feline and canine adoption fees include a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID implant, a free office visit with a participating veterinarian and a highly discounted bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food. The League spends approximately $300 on each homeless cat and dog that comes through its doors, including shelter, foster and medical care, and behavior training.
