Have Questions? We have the answers

The Furry Scurry is a fun-filled festival, including a two-mile walk at Washington Park and one of the Dumb Friends League’s largest fundraisers for homeless pets and horses. This year, people can gather in person on Saturday, May 6 OR walk remotely between now and May 24 (although we hope you choose May 6 for your virtual stroll!). No matter where you scurry, every step you take and dollar you raise will make a lasting difference for the animals in our care.

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re offering a range of fun activities we know you’ll love. If a virtual experience is more your style, you can walk the two miles wherever you wish with a feline friend by your side!

Furry Scurry registration fees provide opportunities for the homeless pets and horses at the League. We provide care to more than 22,000 animals each year, and the League is funded entirely from our generous supporters. Fundraisers like the Furry Scurry are essential for us to continue to provide the care each and every day for the animals who need us most.

WHAT: A fun-filled festival, including a two-mile fundraiser walk.

WHY: Thousands of homeless animals come to the League each year. They need your support.

WHERE: Washington Park in Denver | Virtually anywhere in the world!

WHEN: Saturday, May 6, 9:00 a.m. – noon| Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. | From a distance until May 24

Definitely! Furry Scurry teams consist of at least five people who are working together toward a fundraising goal. The more people on your team, the more you can help the Dumb Friends League!

Teams can compete to earn additional awards. Fundraising incentives are based on the amount each team member raises (rather than the team’s overall total).
