The annual Furry Scurry brought some 10,000 people and 5,000 of their four-legged friends to Washington Park last month, raising about $720,000 for the Denver Dumb Friends League, according to a news release.

Fundraising for the event continued through June 4.

Dr. Apryl Steele, president and CEO of the nonprofit Dumb Friends League, thanked donors.

“We take in more than 50 homeless animals every day—we turn no animal away,” Steele said in the release. “Money raised at the Furry Scurry helps us provide medical care to sick and injured animals, behavior training that allows pets to be adopted more quickly, perform investigations of animal neglect and mistreatment, and supports the League’s overall mission to end pet homelessness and animal suffering.”
