The Dumb Friends League Furry Scurry has become a tradition for many Denver area residents. The annual two-mile walk for animals takes place at Denver’s Washington Park on the Saturday in May 2, 2015. As the Dumb Friends League’s largest annual fundraiser, more than 12,000 people and 5,000 dogs join the walk and raise funds for the homeless pets in DDLF’s care.
