News Release - The Dumb Friends League is giving you that chance: From now through Dec. 31, you can “Name Your Price” on a cat or dog 1 year or older.
“Needless to say, we would rather see more cats and dogs in loving homes than in our shelters, especially during the holiday season,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League.
The adoption special will be offered at both shelter locations-the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock-as well as the adoption center at Northfield Stapleton, the Pet Care-avan mobile adoption unit and at select Petco locations.
The adoption fee you choose includes a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, microchip ID implant and a free office visit with a participating veterinarian.
“Our number-one goal is to find forever homes for all of the cats and dogs in our care,” said Theresa Geary, vice president of operations at the Dumb Friends League. “So why not come in and find the perfect pet-at the perfect price for you?”
Families that cannot adopt at this time can still help by becoming foster parents Foster parents provide temporary care for an animal in their home until it is ready for adoption or until space is available at the shelters.
The League provides foster families with food and supplies, as well as veterinary care for pets as needed.
