Who let the paws out?

What do places like Bailey, Boulder, Denver (of course!), Loveland and Texas Creek, Colorado, along with the Black Hills in South Dakota, have in common? This year, each of these locations (and so many more places) saw participants in the first-ever Virtual Furry Scurry on May 2!

In addition to the usual humans accompanied by their pups, this year’s event saw some dogs swimming and even a few cats taking a stroll to join the fun.

It’s not too late to lace up your sneakers, fetch your four-legged companion and register to be a part of this year’s Virtual Furry Scurry to help animals at the Dumb Friends League!

Participants can walk the original 2 miles or a lap around the neighborhood. We don’t care how long you walk, just that you walk! Have fun and be safe as tails wag in your neck of the woods – and still enjoy being outdoors while helping the animals in our care!

There’s still time to help the animals in our care and earn awesome gear! Howl you wonder?
