Dumb Friends League Giving Circles

Our Dumb Friends League Giving Circles recognize people who, through their generous financial support, are special friends of the animals in our care. By making gifts at designated annual levels, these donors receive special recognition, benefits and invitations to events.

By joining one of our Giving Circles, you help us provide vital care for homeless pets and horses. The more than 20,000 homeless pets we welcome to our open-admission shelters each year are requiring ever-more specialized programs and services, including intensive veterinary care, complex surgeries and dental procedures, professional behavior training and long-term foster care. We’re investing more in getting each pet out the door because we believe that giving these precious pets a second chance for a happy, healthy life in a loving home is worth every penny—and we hope you do, too.

The cumulative total of your giving between July 1 and June 30 each year qualifies you for inclusion in one of the Giving Circles. For more information about our Giving Circles, please contact Major Gifts at 720.241.7141 or majorgifts@ddfl.org.
