BLACK FRIDAY – Two Denver-area animal shelters are offering Black Friday specials with fur on top.
You can name your price for all cats and dogs 1 year and older this Friday at the Dumb Friends League(www.ddfl.org). The first 25 adopters of the day will also receive a free $25 gift card from IKEA.
Not to be outdone, Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden will let you name your price for all animals of all ages on Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Foothills also is having a half-off “pre” Black Friday event today (Wednesday) from 3 to 7 p.m. Both Foothills specials are for the shelter location only (580 McIntyre Street in Golden).

The Dumb Friends Black Friday special will be honored at all Dumb Friends League locations—the Quebec Street Shelter in Denver, the Buddy Center in Castle Rock and select Petco and PetSmart locations where Dumb Friends League cats are available for adoption.
IKEA gift cards will only be given at the Quebec Street Shelter and Buddy Center. Adoption hours at the Quebec Street Shelter in Denver will be extended from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

BOULDER HUMANE – The Huamane Society of Boulder Valley is asking for the public’s health to purchase vital veterinary equipment for its shelter animals. Shelter veterinarians regularly see animals with severe ear and eye infections that require immediate medical attention.
Help is needed to purchase new ear and eye scopes and supplies, to properly diagnose these issues. Boulder Humane is trying to raise $3,200 to purchase new otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes.
