HELPING "LONELY HEARTS CLUB" PETS - The Dumb Friends League is waiving the adoption fee Feb. 14-17 for all the pets in its “Lonely Hearts Club”—a special club for the League’s longer-term residents. These are cats and dogs that need a little extra help getting noticed—maybe because they’re older, or a little shy, or because they just blend in with the rest.
All adoptions include spay or neuter services, medical examination, preliminary vaccinations, microchip identification implant, and a free office visit with a participating veterinarian. To view the current members of the “Lonely Hearts Club,” visit the Dumb Friends League (www.ddfl.org) or call (303) 751-5772 for more information.
