Support homeless pets during Pledges for Pets Telethon Jan. 26 Sit … Stay … Watch … and make a pledge to support homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League on Sunday, Jan. 26. Tune in to the 16th annual Pledges for Pets Telethon, sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet, on FOX31/KDVR from noon to 5 p.m. During the five-hour live broadcast, viewers will hear heartwarming adoption stories, as well as meet dozens of adoptable pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits and other small pets. “Animal lovers will see the many ways the Dumb Friends League helps pets, horses and people in our community,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO. “They’ll also see how their donations can make a lifechanging difference for thousands of homeless animals that come into our care every year.” The Dumb Friends League hopes to raise more than $300,000 during this year’s telethon. The funds raised will help provide loving care and vital services for thousands of cats, dogs and other
small animals, as well as abused and neglected horses at the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center. A private, nonprofit organization, the Dumb Friends League spends $25,121 a day on companion animal services, including $7,965 daily on veterinary care in our shelters and on our two mobile clinics. An additional $2,017 a day is spent on equine services, including veterinary care, feed, rehabilitation and training for the animals at the equine center. “Any dollar amount—whether it’s a one-time or monthly contribution—will have a direct impact on the pets and people that count on us each and every day,” Rohde said. Last year, 16,885 animals were adopted to new homes or returned to their owners by the Dumb Friends League. The organization also offers other critical services, includ-
ing lost and found, humane education, behavior training, foster care, animal cruelty investigations and spay/neuter surgeries at reduced fees (subsidized by Dumb Friends League donors) for pets in underserved areas. The Pledges for Pets Telethon will be hosted by FOX31 on-air talent, including Brooke Wagner, Kirk Yuhnke, Chris Parente, Ken Clark, Jennifer Broome, Chris Tomer, Shaul Turner, Chris Jose, Shanna Mendiola and Dan Daru. Denise Plante and Murphy Huston of KOSI 101 will also help emcee the telethon. For more information about the Dumb Friends League and the telethon, visit ddfl.org/telethon or call 303-751-5772.
