about the Dumb Friends League

The Dumb Friends League is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, and supporting the members of our community through staff and volunteers who are guided by:

Compassion for all animals that come through our doors—whether they are lost, relinquished or suffering, we will give them the treatment and care they need.

Compassion for every person that enters our facilities—whether they are here to adopt, here to find their lost pet, or here because they are unable to care for the pet and trust us to treat it with love and kindness.

Compassion for people and animals in our community—providing spay/neuter services at reduced fees, investigating instances of animal neglect and mistreatment, offering behavior couseling to pet owners and delivering humane education to teach respect for animals.

By providing an ever-higher level of care for the pets and horses that come to us. and holding strong to our commitment to preventing animal suffering and reducing pet homelessness, we continue to make significant strides in saving lives.

In fiscal year 2017:

pets and horses were saved
surgeries were performed
animal-welfare cases were investigated
pets received foster care
