The Dumb Friends League hosted its annual Furry Scurry dog walk on Saturday May 5, at Denver’s Washington Park to raise money for homeless pets in our community.
The event included a two-mile walk around Wash Park, followed by refreshments, food trucks, contests, dog demonstrations and more than 150 pet-related vendors and sponsors at the Flea-less Market.
Each year, the Dumb Friends League helps care for more than 20,000 homeless pets. Money raised from the Furry Scurry aids in the League’s mission to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. This year, the event raised more than $875,000 and is still receiving donations, hoping to hit their $1 million goal.
Funds raised at this event through registration fees and individual donations provide medical care to sick and injured animals, behavior training that allows pets to be adopted more quickly, investigations of animal neglect and mistreatment and more.
As a longtime advocate for the humane treatment of animals, Scott Reiman served on the Denver Dumb Friends League board of directors for more than 10 years and continues to be actively involved with the organization. He has also supported a number of other important animal welfare programs and organizations, most notably the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
