this charity is the go to place to adopt animals in Denver. They have wonderful events for the community that raise awareness, enthusiasm and funds. They save many, many lives and have top notch volunteers. However the CEO is drastically overpaid compared to other similar charities. Also as a former volunteer at the San Francisco SPCA, I witnessed far greater effort ensuring animals were healthy before they were exposed to other animals up for adoption. this was done via a quarantine system. Not only does this reduce healthcare costs for the facility, but for the new pet owner as well. I have adopted one sick cat (that made my other cat sick who then needed costly care). I have many friends who adopted from Denver Dumb Friends league. Some of these turned out to be sick as well. Bringing a pet home can already be a stressful time, but it should also be joyous. instead, healthcare challenges that could have been prevented greatly compromise the initial home integration stage.
This charity should reduce to CEOs pay in half and put that toward preventative health care. I hope to see them improve on these aspects. As soon as they do I'll be right back as a donor. they do save lives, but I do think that the community needs to put more pressure for more reasonable CEO pay.

Review from Guidestar

We've adopted cats and dogs from this organization since the early 1990s. DDFL has been doing it's work since the early 1900s in Denver. They accept ALL animals and do their very best to find homes for as many animals as possible. They aren't a no-kill shelter, but they retrain, foster and do everything humanly possible so animals are adoptable and adopted. They have a Behavioral Help Line, people who investigate cruelty complaints and more.They're good people! I can't say enough good things about them!

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

The mini-depression has caused many animals who had homes, become homeless. My husband can't adopt any more pets, so we donate to various organizations with gift cards (from pet stores such as Petco, PetSmart, Drs Foster and Smith, Cat Claws etc) and regular donations.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

DDFL is having a Matching Fund-raiser until the end of May 2011.

What would you tell others about this organization?

It's a good organization run by people who care about animals!
