  • Paws to Give™ Shelter Giving Experience

    Each holiday season, patrons are invited to our three facilities—the Quebec Street Shelter in Denver, the Buddy Center in Castle Rock and the Harmony Equine Center in Franktown—to fill out a “paw” decoration with a donation amount and message that is displayed on our walls or you can make a gift online. Children and adults alike can write something in honor or memory of a special pet or horse. This is a great time for parents to visit the shelter with their children, view the animals in our care and share the spirit of giving.

  • Furry Scurry®

    The Furry Scurry dog walk, held in Denver’s Washington Park, is a two-mile walk that draws 12,000 people and 5,000 dogs each year. More than 150 vendors and sponsors offer pet-related products, and walkers enjoy food, demonstrations and contests. Contact ssprock@ddfl.org.

Volunteer opportunities are available for most of our events. For more information, please follow the links to the event pages or contact Megan Newhouse at mnewhouse@ddfl.org.
