‘Dumb Friends League’ Barks, Meows and Neighs at Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER – June 22, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is partnering with the Dumb Friends League to create a new temporary art exhibit featuring a variety of animal-related services, including pet adoption information, to help educate travelers. The display cases are located at the northeast end of the Jeppesen Terminal on Level 5, through November.

Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League is the region’s largest community-based animal welfare organization and has achieved one of the highest placement rates for homeless pets in the country. Exhibit display cases artfully highlight important services the Dumb Friends League offers, such as pet adoption, equine adoption, animal protection and spay/neuter services. The unique and educational exhibit celebrates one of Colorado’s compassionate non-profit organizations.
