KUSA - The Dumb Friends League Furry Scurry is an annual two-mile walk for animals that traditionally takes place at Denver's Washington Park on the first Saturday in May.
It is the Dumb Friends League's largest annual fundraiser, with more than 12,000 people and 5,000 dogs joining us for the walk and raising funds for the homeless pets in our care.
The Furry Scurry has become a tradition for many Denver-area residents.
Furry Scurry participants enjoy refreshments, contests, demonstrations and more than 150 pet-related sponsors and vendors at our "Flea-less Market." Whether you are looking for the latest innovations in pet toys or a tasty treat from a local food truck, you can find it all at the Furry Scurry.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event.
Online registration closes at 5 p.m. on May 3, but there is day-of registration beginning at 7 a.m. The walk will start at 9 a.m. The registration fee is $50.
Event festivities include the Flealess Market for pet-friendly merchandise and services offered by more than 150 sponsors and vendors. First-timer or pro, dog owners can head over to the Zoom Room agility course for a run through the obstacles. Test your dog's speed at lure coursing and try for your best time. Open entries begin at 9:30 a.m. And, of course, enter your furry friend into the pet/person look-alike, Best Pet Kisser and Best Tail Wagger contests beginning at 10:30 a.m.
