Since 1914, American Humane has designated the first week of May as national “Be Kind to Animals Week,” so it’s a great time to honor the furry, feathered, and scaled friends in our lives. And most of us have animal companions. According to the 2017 – 2018 American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, 68% of American households include at least one pet, and this year we’ll spend an estimated $70 billion on our pets.
Given the climate, environment, and number of physically active people in Denver, it’s no surprise that our city is home to The Dumb Friends League (DFL), the largest community-based animal welfare society in the Rocky Mountain region. Founded in 1910 by “the unsinkable” Molly Brown, DFL has provided shelter and services to millions of animals over the last century. This weekend (May 6th), DFL celebrates its annual Furry Scurry walk to help homeless pets at Washington Park in Denver. It’s a fantastic way to show your support for a great cause.
