The Dumb Friends League is entirely community-supported. It is through our partners’ trust in our work that it is possible for us to care for, rehabilitate and place more than 20,000 cats, dogs, horses and other pets each year. Our work reflects not just our own commitment to pets and the community, but that of our partners as well.

When we work together, it benefits all of us and most importantly, the animals and people that urgently need help.

The impact of your generosity will be felt. By partnering with the League, you will:

  • Aid in the sustainability of essential services and programs that have long-term positive change for animals and humans in need.
  • Ensure that every animal that comes through our shelters has access to the best possible care.
  • Touch the lives of thousands of pets and countless more community members caring for those pets that bring companionship and unparalleled joy to their lives.
