The 107-year history of the Dumb Friends League
This month, the Dumb Friends League turns 107 years old—and we wanted to share some of our amazing history with you! Check out these fantastic historic photos and news articles highlighting some stops along the way from our humble beginnings to our efforts today to care for approximately 22,000 homeless pets each year.
The Dumb Friends League operated out of this facility at its founding in 1910.
In 1948, we broke ground on our first custom-built facility on Santa Fe Drive.
In the early 1970s, we finally moved to our current home at 2080 S. Quebec St., and over the years we have renovated and expanded this shelter to better serve homeless pets and our community (including our current renovation project).
