As the leading animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region, the Dumb Friends League has been helping pets and people in the Denver metro area and beyond for 100 years.

The League is committed to the welfare of animals, speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves. They welcome tens of thousands animals each year at two shelter locations: the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock.

In addition to providing care and shelter for homeless pets, the League provides other services, including pet adoptions, lost and found, humane education, foster care, behavior training, animal cruelty investigations and donor-subsidized spay/neuter surgeries for pets in underserved areas.

Programs: The Dumb Friends League provides shelter and care for tens of thousands of homeless pets each year at two shelter locations. In fiscal year 2010, the League saved 18,070 pets with a 99% placement rate for healthy pets. Of that number, the League adopted 14,845 cats, dogs and other small mammals; reunited 2,505 lost pets with owners; and transferred 720 pets out for alternative placement.
