DENVER - The Dumb Friends League will resume dog adoptions Tuesday after a four-week freeze. The shelter suspended intake and adoptions in April after five dogs died in a pneumonia outbreak.

"We wouldn't be resuming adoption operations if we thought there was an increased risk to the community," Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League, said in a news release.

Even though they're accepting dog adoptions now, the shelter is only allowing dogs given up by their owners. They will not be accepting lost dogs until further notice. Dog adoptions include a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID and a free office visit with a participating veterinarian.

To see adoptable dogs or to get additional information about the Dumb Friends League, go to ddfl.org.
