As a 100% community-funded organization, the Dumb Friends League relies on the generosity of people like you to support our mission of ending pet homelessness and animal suffering. Through giving, our compassionate community of donors and volunteers makes our vital work possible.
It is because of you that we are able to provide warm shelter, veterinary care, and behavioral support for more than 46,000 vulnerable animals each year. And every little bit helps.
- $20 feeds two neglected horses for one day.
- $32 gives a homeless pet one night of safe shelter.
- $50 supports diagnostic bloodwork for a senior pet.
- $75 helps pay for positive animal behavior training – an essential component to many successful adoptions.
