The Dumb Friends League does a lot more than adoptions. It offers a voice for animals that can’t speak for themselves.

To give you an idea of what the organization has done in the past year, here’s a breakdown:

  • 19,697 pets and horses were saved
  • 23,155 surgeries were performed
  • 529 animal-welfare cases were investigated
  • 2,384 pets received foster care
