How You Can Participate
What is the Furry Scurry?
The Furry Scurry is an annual, 2-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 19,000 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 2021.
Our 2022 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. After you cross the finish line, we hope you’ll toast your kindness with a treat at our beer garden, sponsored by Denver Beer Company.
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 7.
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 7, but you can also walk remotely between now and May 31.
Fundraising ends on June 7, 2022.
You’re just one step away from being a part of the 29th annual Furry Scurry and helping thousands of animals in need!

What They’re Saying
Hear from others about their Furry Scurry experience
I participate in the Furry Scurry because it is my way to give back to the organization that I love. Each day, I get the opportunity to watch firsthand as our incredible team members work hard to serve the people and animals of Colorado. It would be almost impossible to be a part of the League community and not be inspired to be an active participant in the mission.
The Furry Scurry is the best dog event you will ever see. There are thousands of dogs, all shapes, sizes, breeds and mixes, with floppy tongues and waggy tails. Thousands of happy people, too. If this event doesn't make you smile and laugh, nothing will. If you love dogs, you have to be there.
I love the enthusiasm of the employees and participants at Furry Scurry. The vendors are also great and give away great swag! The attendees take notice of how long people have been involved and how much they care about the event and the organization.
I love Furry Scurry because it gives me the chance to support a good cause while doing one of my dog Apollo's favorite things -- walk. The event is usually Apollo's birthday weekend so it's a way for us to celebrate. It's also a way for Apollo to socialize with people and pets in a safe and fun environment.
