Denver is full of great shelters for dogs!
The paw of approval goes out to places such as Maxfund, a shelter that has several decades of no-kill history in the city and continues to put the purr in Purrfect, deserving plenty of Apaws. There have been a long list of people involved in getting this shelter off the ground and every one of them is a hero.
MaxFund is an outstanding example of animal advocacy. The creators of this exemplary shelter have truly put their hearts into their efforts, as well as their blood, sweat, and many tears as well.
Another pawsome place to go and see the furry faces you love is the Dumb Friends Little League. The folks at this great shelter have a paws on attitude towards rehabilitation and rehoming. In fact, their efforts go beyond the wagging tails and perfect clause of most shelters. You'll find that they have taken in some more difficult cases while hoofing it all over the country.
You can find some absolutely stunning examples of success in the residents of the League. From uncanny canines to the purrfect feline companions, this place has some truly unique individuals to choose from.
Finally, we'd like to show some appreciation for the smaller rescues in the city. Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue has spent a great deal of time rescuing and rehabilitating our four-legged friends of the Boxer breed. The absolute devotion they show in matching these distinguished characters with their forever homes is commendable, to say the least.Working on their own for years, the Ho-Bo center has finally come to the point where they've had to ask for donations to keep doing the amazing job they do. Boxers are a very special breed and we're very happy knowing that such experienced people are educating others about the breed and ensuring these dogs go to homes that understand their special needs.
For those who really love to get outside with their best friends while enjoying a variety of vendor stands, activities, and contests, there is a great fundraising event in Denver each May. The Furry Scurry is dedicated to raising the funds needed to support the Dumb Friends League and the many locations and support services they provide. The Furry Scurry is all about supporting the local shelters, finding some great pet-related items for your pets, and participating in some really great contests. Even if you don't have a pet, be sure to sign up to go out and help animals in need!
Every year during the Boulder County Fair, there is an outstanding event that pet lovers and owners alike can enjoy. Don't forget to bring your favorite four-legged companions, because they won't want to miss out on the Lucky Mutt Strut held at the fair every year. This event features a great variety of vendors, shows, a parade, and many other fun attractions thanks to the fairgrounds and their staff. Come on out and help support MaxFund, an organization that deserves all sorts of praise for the dedication they have shown to finding pets-in-waiting their forever homes for several decades.
