Dumb Friends League is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. It was founded in 1910 and back then the name was chosen using a British reference of “dumb” as in those who cannot speak. Today it is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountains, providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot defend or speak for themselves.
Dumb Friends mission is to work with a compassionate community in ending pet homelessness and animal suffering. They support pet adoptions, pet surrender, spay and neuter services, lost & found, behavior help, end-of-life, investigations, and pet guardianship. DDFL supports not only dog and cat adoptions, but equine as well. It was founded in 1910 and the name was chosen using a British reference of “dumb” as in those who cannot speak.
