Working with our compassionate community, we will end pet homelessness and animal suffering.

Compassion Always

We are a Socially Conscious Animal Welfare Organization, which means we place every single healthy and safe pet. We also address the medical and behavioral needs of all animals while they are in our care. If an animal is suffering and cannot be helped, we will provide compassionate euthanasia.

The Dumb Friends League is an independent, local, nonprofit organization. We are not an affiliate of any national animal welfare organization.
