“Nice boy. He’s very friendly and gets excited easily. He walks well once he has calmed down.” – League Volunteer

Bruno is a 1-year-old pit bull who is anything but a “Hound Dog”. He’s a big, funny loving who wants to have fun. Bruno is smart. He knows basic commands like sit and can catch treats in the air. Bruno is a bit clumsy because he still has some puppy in him. He is house-trained and will make a great walking companion with some positive reinforcement training.


“Sweet boy who knows how to sit for treats and take them gently. He is strong and vocal around other dogs.” – League Volunteer

Iroh is a 2-year-old black and white mixed breed. He enjoys being an only pet and does well when he is alone in the house. There’s no “Heartbreak Hotel” for this guy. Iroh has an adventurous spirit and likes to be the center of attention. He likes to dig holes outside. Iroh would do best playing fetch and with puzzle toys.


“He is so cute and funny. Simba will tempt you to rub his belly, but don’t fall for it!” – League Staff

It’s time to “Jailhouse Rock” with Simba, the 7-year-old tabby cat. This confident fellow is independent and likes his alone time. Simba takes time to warm up to others and is a wonderful friend. He prefers to be the only cat in your home.


“Knox is a handsome cat. He has lived well with other cats in the past and is good with his litterbox.” – League Staff

Knox is “All Shook Up”. He’s a 7-year-old black cat who needs some love. Knox gets nervous and can shy away. You can relax him by holding him and giving him reassuring pets – he will always ask for more. Overall, Knox is a friendly, sweet and quiet cat. He would do best in a relaxing and calm home.


“Duncan loves to cuddle. When you scratch his neck and ears, he drools. He can’t wait for someone to come in and see him in the morning. He loves his blanket and watching the world around him. He would love a window to sun in and a couch to share with you.” – League Staff

Duncan is a 13-year-old cat who is getting in the holiday spirit at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock. He’s an affectionate old-man who loves to snuggle and hang out. Duncan will be available for adoption shortly. The poor guy recently had some teeth pulled due to his severe dental disease. He will need a patient family to slowly introduce him to other pets and help him with his litterbox manners. Keep checking for Duncan on our website to learn more about him.


“Outtie is a Bureau of Land Management Mustang that is as handsome as he is sweet. Not only is he a volunteer favorite, but a favorite by all who meet him. He loves attention, especially if it involves scratches and pets. Outtie has an outgoing personality and would make a great addition to the family.” – League Staff

Outtie is an 8-year-old mustang gelding. This gentle guy has a charming personality and is getting a refresher from trainers at the Harmony Equine Center. Outtie has some issues with his legs and will need to be a light riding horse or would make a good companion horse. He would be a great addition to any herd.


“Ranger is always happy and lots of fun! He would make a great adventure buddy!” –League Volunteer

Ranger is a 1-year-old boxer and pit bull mix. He loves to stay active! Ranger is very sweet and playful. He is uncomfortable around certain dogs but loves his people. Ranger responds well with positive reinforcement. He will need a patient owner with a strong-presence to help him become a well-behaved dog.


“Libby love laps! If yours is vacant she is sure to make it her own. The sweet girl deserves the lap and home of her dreams!” – League Staff

Sweet Libby at 12-years-old is ready to settle into the home of her dreams. This affectionate feline loves to lounge in laps and would be happiest as the queen of her castle as a single pet. Libby was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease at the shelter and will need ongoing medical care for her condition.
