Free pets for vets on Veterans Day

To honor our service men and women this Veterans Day, the Dumb Friends League is waiving the adoption fee for all pets for military members on Saturday, Nov. 11.

As a salute to America’s armed forces, the Dumb Friends League says its Veterans Day adoption special is its way of giving back to those who have served and continue to serve our country.

“It’s a simple way for us to show our appreciation,” said Kristin Elliott, customer care manager for the Dumb Friends League. “Our veterans are already heroes to this country, and now they can be a hero to a homeless pet in need.”

All cat and dog adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip identification implant and a free office visit with a participating veterinarian. The standard adoption screening process still applies during all waived-fee promotions.

The Dumb Friends League Quebec Street Shelter in Denver will be open for adoptions on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Buddy Center, located in Castle Rock, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information on the Dumb Friends League or to view pets available for adoption, visit or call (303) 751-5772.
