Dumb Friends League has 'unusually high number of dogs' as it fully reopens to the public

Denver's Dumb Friends League has more than 70 dogs available for adoption.

DENVER — Denver's Dumb Friends League (DFL) announced Monday it is fully open to the public for the first time since the pandemic began in March 2020.

DFL said appointments are still being offered for pet adoption, but are no longer required to visit any of its adoption centers – the Leslie A. Malone Center in Denver, Buddy Center in Castle Rock and San Luis Valley Animal Center in Alamosa.

"We have an unusually high number of dogs currently available for adoption and more coming in every day," said Katie Parker, Vice President of Operations at DFL. "We are ready to connect dogs with people, and we need the community’s help. We encourage anyone interested in adding a new pet to their life to consider adopting today."

DFL said it currently has more than 70 dogs available for adoption and would love to help create new friendships in our community between pets and people.

You can learn more about adoptable pets by visiting ddfl.org/adoption.

All pet adoptions include spay and neuter surgeries, age-appropriate vaccinations, including rabies and a microchip ID.
