How You Can Participate

What is the Furry Scurry?

The Furry Scurry is an annual, two-mile walk to support our vital mission of ending pet homelessness and animal suffering. Known as our signature fundraiser, this event helps the Dumb Friends League provide specialized and compassionate care for animals who need it most.

Each year, more than 22,000 homeless pets and horses come through our doors in need of warm shelter, nourishment, and medical attention – your Furry Scurry registration fee, as well as any additional funds you raise, make these essential services possible for every animal in our care. Thanks to our generous community, we were able to make an incredible impact for animals in fiscal year 2022.

Our 2023 Furry Scurry celebration will include exciting new activities, including one-of-a-kind contests and a Flealess Market filled with goodies for the special pet in your life.

Who Can Participate?

The Dumb Friends League welcomes you, your family, friends, and dogs to walk with us in person at Washington Park. For those participating from afar or on another date, we’d love to see your social, adventurous feline friends strut down the catwalk as well! For safety reasons, we ask that cats stay home on May 6.

Where can I participate?

The in-person Furry Scurry will take place in beautiful Washington Park, located in Denver, Colorado. If you would prefer to scurry from home or are otherwise unable to join us in person, just register, pick the location of your choice, and walk with us remotely! A park, a trail, a neighborhood path, or even a treadmill are all wonderful ways to take part in this year’s event!

When does this happen?

We’d love for you to join us in person at Washington Park on Saturday, May 6, but you can also walk remotely between now and May 24.
Fundraising ends on May 24, 2023.
