The Furry Scurry is an annual two-mile walk in Denver (more specifically Wash Park), its purpose is to raise money and awareness for the Dumb Friends League and their homeless pet population. It's on Saturday, May 7th and we will begin walking at 9am.
The Dumb Friends League helps to take care of more than 20,000 homeless pets each year. Donations from this Colorado tradition goes towards care provided by the DFL such as investigating cases of animal cruelty, medical care to sick or injured dogs, behavior training to help the animal’s adoption rates and more. The Dumb Friends League is one of the most widely known animal shelters in Colorado and for a good reason too; they go above and beyond. They can only continue to accomplish such great achievements if they can afford to do so; this is where this annual walk comes to play.
You can help by joining and attending the walk as an individual, starting or joining a team with you and other friends or family and working together to raise funds, or simply make a donation. Even small donations can be a big help!
If you choose to register whether as a team or as an individual you will pay $50 ($25 if you are a kiddo) along which you will receive a t-shirt. Then on the day of, you will do the walk in Wash Park (duh) and of course bring your doggy if you choose (I’ll be bringing Miss Petie, It’d be farrrr to stressful of a place to bring Laverne).
Then afterwards you can enjoy refreshments, contests, demos, and the “Flea-Less Market” (kudos to them for the oh so fabulously corny pun) provided by the 150+ pet related sponsors and vendors. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, I don’t even want to know you!
You can even register as the “Lazy Dog” or, “Cat Nap” where you pay the same price and get the same shirt but all you have to do is sit back at home with your tea and Netflix and let the good karma roll in… Perfect if you want to help but would sooner gnaw your own leg off than be in a mass crowd.
It’s gonna be super fun, it’s for a good cause so you may even get some warm fuzzies inside for being a good person, and I’ll be there so maybe we’ll run into each other and you can experience how awkward I am in real life! Yay!
