The Denver Dumb Friends League has gently granted us the permission to translate some of the their files. (Thanks to Lani Kian, Communications Manager of the Denver Dumb Friends League)

The Denver Dumb Friends League is committed to the welfare of animals.
Since 1910, the Denver Dumb Friends League has extended a hand of kindness to animals in need throughout the metro area. The League is a private, non-profit animal welfare organization that shelters more than 21,000 lost, unwanted and abandoned animals each year. Many of these pets are found wandering the streets and are brought to the League by caring residents. Others are relinquished for many reasons by their owners.
The League provides care for nearly 40% of the Denver metro area's homeless animals. On any given day, approximately 350 animals are sheltered at the League's Quebec and West Shelters. A dedicated staff of approximately 105 employees and 325 volunteers strive to find new homes for the animals or reunite them with their original owners.
The League benefits from no tax dollars, but thanks to the support of many individual, foundation and corporate donors, the League makes a big difference for our animal friends...speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
