For more than a century, the Dumb Friends League has created lasting friendships. The bond between pets and people is like no other, and the memories made capture a special place in our hearts. Friendships are made while playing fetch, enjoying snuggle time, going on adventures or just savoring quiet time together. And, when they’re in need, you’re there for them like a good friend.

People donate to the League for all sorts of reasons—perhaps it’s to honor a pet or person who made a difference in their life or because they believe in our mission or they want to be a part of something meaningful. Whatever the motivation, our donors are part of a community that shapes the League’s future and helps the vulnerable animals in our care until they find the friend who will take them home.

Animals come to the League each day with different needs, but they all have one thing in common—they need our help to have the life they deserve. Our monthly donors support the pets in our care day after day, month after month, like the best kind of friend. A monthly donation to the League provides an even greater impact, and together, this band of compassionate people do so much good for the pets in our care. Last year, monthly donations provided 12,270 nights of safe shelter and care to the homeless pets we serve! When you become a monthly donor, think of all the sweet dreams you’ll make happen!

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits to you:

  • You can give an amount you’re comfortable with, starting with a gift as low as $10 a month.
  • You can spread the financial impact of your giving across a year, making commitments more manageable.
  • You can change your monthly gift at any time.
  • It’s a safe and convenient way to support one of your favorite causes, the League!
  • You’re helping the animals in our care each and every month.

On average, each month, our monthly donor’s gifts help by :

  • Creating 909 friendships by way of adoptions
  • Placing 293 animals in loving foster homes
  • Providing 26 behavior consultations over the phone to pet owners who want the best for their pets

Love. Trust. Companionship. Friendship. Monthly donors make it happen every day at the League, and there is no greater gift. Be a friend to pets in need and learn more about our monthly giving program today at
