Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region – providing a strong and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Dumb Friends League's facilities include two pet shelters – where no animals are turned away – and a private center for equine victims of abuse and neglect. In 2016 Dumb Friends League saved a total of 19,218 pets; with a 100% placement rate for healthy cats and dogs. Dumb Friends League has no set time limit for how long a pet can remain in our care. We use veterinary services, behavior programs, foster programs, special-needs adoption programs and placement partners to give as many pets as possible a second chance at a happy life in a new home. In the community, we offer subsidized spay/neuter services to underserved areas through the metro area, teach compassion and understanding of animals through our humane education programs, and work in conjunction with law enforcement to stop abuse and educate pet owners on responsible pet ownership.
