Bone Appetit

The Dumb Friends League is excited to announce our second annual restaurant and brewery Give Back Day on Thursday, October 15, 2020. Show you care for animals, create a sense of community and increase your customer base by joining us for Bone Appétit, benefitting the League.

Why Participate?

As a community-based animal welfare organization, the Dumb Friends League provides an unwavering and dedicated voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Our mission is to end pet homelessness and animal suffering, and we help not just animals that come into our shelters, but we also impact animal welfare throughout the Denver metro community with our programs and services.

By participating in the Bone Appétit event, you will help the more than 20,000 injured, scared and homeless animals who come to our shelters each year in need of medical care, behavior programs and, perhaps most important, hope for finding a new home.

How do I Participate?

Sign up your restaurant, brewery or bar by September 16, 2020 to participate in our Bone Appétit event.
