Dumb Friends League event brings in $875,000

Posted

Two- and four-legged friends helped raise $875,000 (and counting) for services to help homeless pets and horses at the Dumb Friends League Furry Scurry.

An estimated 10,000 people and 5,000 dogs attended the 25th annual event May 5 in Washington Park, where they enjoyed dog contests and demos, met adoptable pets and shopped for pet-friendly goods and services at the Flea-less Market.

"We are grateful to be a part of such a compassionate community," Apryl Steele, Dumb Friends League president and CEO, said in a news release. "The work we do wouldn't be possible without their continued support of our mission, programs and services that help pets and horses in need."

The Dumb Friends League takes in an average of 60 homeless animals every day, more than 22,000 last year, the release said. Money raised at the Furry Scurry helps provide medical care to sick and injured animals, behavior training that allows pets to be adopted more quickly and investigations of animal neglect and mistreatment, and supports the league's overall mission to end pet homelessness and animal suffering.

Furry Scurry donations are being accepted through June 5. For information, go to furryscurry.org or call 303-751-5772.
