Denver's Furry Scurry is Close! Pet Fundraiser Day at Washington Park

The Furry Scurry is this Saturday! On May 7, Washington Park will be filled with Furry Scurry fun. Register now so you don’t miss this exciting event. Stop by our sponsors' booths for fun giveaways and shop the Flealess Market for unique items for you and your pets. Not only will we have Colorado Disc Dogs and the Ruff Flyball Club in our demo ring but now there’s even more entertainment to enjoy. Live music by The Give will be in the meadow west of the Flealess Market. Bring your dog and come bark along after you’ve finished the walk.

Of course, everything that’s being planned to make the Furry Scurry the best celebration of pets and people anywhere has one main goal—to help the hundreds of cats, dogs and small critters that are at our shelters right now, waiting for happy homes. Among them are 52 dogs that we took in a few weeks ago, victims of an animal hoarder who had neglected them for years. They are getting all the love they’ve missed, plus the medical care they need to turn their lives around. Read their story here and be even more inspired to take part in the Furry Scurry, our premier fundraising event of the year.

You can register online or at our Quebec Street shelter until 5 p.m. on Friday. Registration opens at the park on event day at 7 a.m. Event Link
