The Dumb Friends League’s biggest fundraiser returns to Washington Park

DENVER (February 4, 2022) – Join thousands of fellow animal advocates across Colorado and the country for the Dumb Friends League’s 29th annual Furry Scurry. Registration is now open at for participants to walk, run, or scurry in person or virtually to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets and horses.

On Saturday, May 7, the highly anticipated in-person event will lead participants and their pups of all breeds along a two-mile walk or fun run around beautiful Wash Park in Denver. (Feline friends are encouraged to attend virtually.) The celebration continues with a family-friendly festival, including a Flealess Market filled with goodies for your furry friend and for the first time ever a beer garden.

Virtual participants will have until May 31 to cross the finish line on the trail, road, or path of their choice.

Registrants can take advantage of early-bird pricing now through February 28, at just $45 for adults and $25 for children. Prices increase on March 1, so visit to secure your spot as an individual or create a team.

Scurriers are encouraged to increase their impact by collecting donations to fundraise beyond their entry fee and earn exclusive Furry Scurry swag. All registrants will receive an event-day T-shirt and a participant bib.

“Year after year I’m encouraged by the way our compassionate community – near and far – comes together in the name of animal welfare at the Furry Scurry,” said Dr. Apryl Steele, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League. “Every dollar raised helps us provide life-changing services for homeless pets and horses in need of medical treatment, behavior training, foster care, and the opportunity to find loving homes.”
