Hill's Science Diet LogoThe pets at the Dumb Friends League eat more than 79,000 pounds of pet food each year, all of which is made available by Hill’s Pet Nutrition as part of its Food, Shelter & Love Program, which has provided over $295 million worth of pet food to nearly 1,000 shelters, helping over 11 million pets find a new home…and counting. Our partnership with Hill’s Pet Nutrition also encompasses collaboration and support around many of the League’s programs, services, and events, including our Homes with Hearts foster program and our annual Furry Scurry.

The Dumb Friends League’s mission is to work with our compassionate community to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. Zoetis shares the goal to find pets forever homes, and is committed to Promoting Pet Adoption by supporting the work of animal shelter organizations like the Dumb Friends League. This includes finding solutions to shelters’ toughest health challenges through donations and the Zoetis for Shelters Program. Together, the Dumb Friends League and Zoetis are working with veterinarians to improve and protect the wellbeing of pets and pet owners.

The Dumb Friends League honors and respects the contributions that veterans and active members of the military have made, and continue to make, for our country and our community. We are proud to partner with Lockheed Martin in supporting a 50% discount on adoption fees for current military and veterans at our shelters.


Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric is a family-owned and operated business, serving the Denver and Boulder areas for more than 46 years. Applewood’s support of the Dumb Friends League helps to ensure that countless pets can receive the second chances, and the new homes they deserve.
