Denver Dumb Friends League Annual Telethon

First of all, we would like to thank effuryone for all of the e-mail and snail mail Christmas/Holiday greetings! We really enjoyed and appreciate effuryone's thoughts and kindness. We also hope that effuryone has received their cards from us by now and hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! :)

Second, the 14th annual Denver Dumb Friends League Pledges for Pets Telethon will be airing this year on January 29 from noon to 5pm on Fox31 (in the Denver area). The telethon helps raise funds for Denver Dumb Friends League to help support homeless pets, reunite lost pets with their owners, investigate claims of animal cruelty, and create community pet education programs. The program will not only feature kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, and other small animals available for adoption, it will also include information about pet nutrition and give you a tour of the Quebec street shelter as well.

I don't know what the minimum monthly donation accepted will be this year. However, when I was watching the telethon a few years ago, the minimum monthly donation accepted was $5, so that nearly everyone who wished to donate, could. You can also make the donation in memory of a pet who has gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, which I feel is a really nice sentiment.

If you are interested in making a donation to the Dumb Friends League and will not be able to tune in to the telethon, you can also make a donation on-line here.


  1. That sounds like a great telethon! We sure hope it is wildly successful!

  3. The Pets Telethon sounds wonderful program! It's great that we can get the info for pet nutrition...I'm still learning this. I hope it'll be a big success!!
