Are you ready to scurry with some furry friends?

The Dumb Friends League Furry Scurry returns and helping homeless pets and horses is as easy as a walk in the park!

The Furry Scurry is so much more than just a fundraiser for homeless animals in our care. It’s the largest single dog walk in the country! Last year, approximately 10,000 people and 5,000 dogs helped celebrate the human-animal bond, and this year is expected to be bigger and better than ever!

A long, long time ago, in a park not-so-far away, Colorado’s favorite dog walk and fun run began. This year, the 26th annual Furry Scurry is Saturday, May 4 at Denver’s Washington Park, and whether you dash or dawdle during the event, one thing is certain. You will have a fantastic time! Furry Scurry participants can meet adoptable pets, enjoy food from local food trucks, shop for pet-friendly goods and services at the Flea-less market, watch demonstrations and participate in contests. (Can you say, “Pet and Person Look-alike” competition?)

Form a team and receive fun perks, such as attending a pick-up expo to get your fundraising incentives before the event, competing to win awards and best of all, getting VIP treatment at the event with entry into the team-only area where you can enjoy refreshments, a commemorative team photo and a chance to pick up your team perk!

The Dumb Friends League takes in an average of 58 homeless animals every day—more than 20,000 last year. Your registration and participation in the Furry Scurry help the League provide medical care to sick and injured animals, behavior training that enables pets to be adopted more quickly, investigations of animal neglect and mistreatment, as well as supports the League’s overall mission to end pet homelessness and animal suffering.

Register and learn more about the Furry Scurry, including fantastic incentive items that can be earned, at We hope you join us and get caught up in all-things furry on Saturday, May 4! See you at the park!
