Denver Dumb Friends League (DDFL) has been around since 1910 and is now the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region. DDFL shelters took in over 17,500 homeless animals last year, providing critical medical and behavioral care as well as foster programs and adoption services. The annual Furry Scurry is their largest fundraising event.“Our mission is to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the League. “The generous support of our community through events like the Furry Scurry is what allows us to be a voice for the animals and make a difference in the lives of homeless pets.”
The Furry Scurry features a two-mile walk around the park starting at 9a.m., but also includes a slew of other events and activities all morning. Refreshments, demonstrations and contests abound, and a “Flealess Market” will showcase over 150 pet-related sponsors and vendors. There will be an all-level “Zoom Room” agility course, a “Run Dog Run” lure course, and starting at 10:30a.m., competitions in categories like Pet/Person Look-Alike and Best Trick.
Participants are encouraged to collect pledges to support Dumb Friends League; exciting incentives are provided for reaching different pledge levels, including innovative leashes and toys, high-performance outdoor gear and more.
Online registration for the Scurry closes at 5p.m. on May 1; day-of registration begins at 7a.m. All registration fees ($50/person; $25/kids 12 and under) and additional raised funds will directly benefit homeless dogs, cats, horses, small mammals and other pets. Funds are used to pay for medical care to sick and injured animals, training for animals that need it, investigations into cases of animal cruelty and much more. To register for the event or to volunteer your help, visit furryscurry.org or call 303-751-7752.
