Dumb Friends League announces $50 off adoption fees for cats and dogs 1 year and older
DENVER (March 19, 2012) Pow! Whamm! Kapow! Protecting the planet from flying tennis balls and saving people from the grip of loneliness are just two of the many incredible powers found in the “super pets” available for adoption at the Dumb Friends League.
Just like Batman’s Robin and the X-Men’s Jean Grey, shelter cats and dogs are loyal sidekicks, willing to do anything to win the hearts of potential adopters. Instead of fighting crime, these super pets—the Kissing Bandit, the Super Snuggler and the Fearless Fetcher, among others—fight boredom with fun and laughter, inactivity with energy and exercise, and loneliness with love and affection.
To help find super pets their forever homes, the Dumb Friends League is taking $50 off adoption fees for cats and dogs 1 year and older at both shelter locations—the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock—as well as the adoption center in Northfield-Stapleton and on its mobile adoption unit, the Pet Care-avan, through June 30.
“There are more than 275 super pets available for adoption at the Dumb Friends League on any given day, with cats and dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds and temperament,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO. “So why not come down and adopt your personal sidekick today? You’ll be getting a great deal, giving a cat or dog a new forever home and bringing more fun, love and companionship into your life.”
All feline and canine adoption fees include a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID implant, a free office visit with a participating veterinarian and a bag of Hill’s Science Diet® pet food. The League spends approximately $300 on each homeless pet that comes through its doors, including shelter, foster and medical care, and behavior training.
Interested adopters can view all pets in need of homes online at ddfl.org as well as visit one of our adoption locations to meet their new sidekick. For more information, visit ddfl.org/adopt or call (303) 751-5772.
