The Colorado fires are affecting more than just our human counterparts, pets are losing their houses too. To help care for those animals The Dumb Friends League, in the hope of finding forever homes for hundreds of adoptable animals, is throwing out regular adoption fees for three days from June 28-30. The special promotion asks patrons to name their own price for any kitten, dog, small mammal or horse adoption. Fees for cats 1 year and older will continue to be waived through June 30.
There is a minimum $1 donation required at the time of adoption, though a larger donation is always welcome.
The adoption special will be offered at both shelter locations—the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock—as well as the adoption center at Northfield-Stapleton and on its mobile unit, the Pet Care-avan. The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center will honor the special on Saturday, June 30, during adoption hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
All feline and canine adoption fees include a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID implant, a free office visit with a participating veterinarian and a highly discounted bag of Hill’s Science Diet® pet food. The League spends approximately $300 on each homeless cat and dog that comes through its doors, including shelter, foster and medical care, and behavior training.
