I had posted this review on Yelp but it *mysteriously* disappeared, so I'm reposting this review here on CitySearch since I know CitySearch does not take bribes to have negative reviews removed.\r

I had a terrible experience in the Pet

.

I have had two experiences with DDFL and both times, I have been impressed with the work of the shelter. The first experience was in 2003 when we adopted a cat , Sydney, whom we still have today. The second was just last week ( Sept 2011)

I strongly believe in the work being done by the Dnever Dumb Friends League!! I used to work there back in the late 70's, to early 80's, and I can tell you that the people who work there are totally dedicated to caring for the animals!

Wow. So sad. I waited for 3 hours to actually have a consultation with an adoption counselor, and half the cats I chose were already adopted. I found a beautiful little 9 month old kitten that had the biggest heart and a great personality. She was sneezing when I was playing with her and the counselor acknowledged that most cats at the shelter have Upper Respiratory Infections. I thought it was odd that they all do but I chose to adopt her. They let me adopt her without any questions about my financial state, where I live, or what type of lifestyle I have. I could have been Michael Vick and adopted a pit bull here. Luckily I am a very good person and love animals.

Here is where I am absolutely appalled. You cannot take a pet home without it being spayed or neutered. THIS IS THE MESSED UP PART. Why would you do surgery on a cat that is sick? They knew she had a cold and they told me she would get sicker after the surgery. What the hell!?!

Fast forward and I have paid over $600 dollars to keep this poor kitty alive. They would not give me antibiotics when I took her home, she obviously had an infection and couldn't breath. She lost 6 pounds in under a week and still is refusing food! I am syringe feeding this beautiful kitten while she chokes on her own mucus and the food. The poor girl just wants to cuddle and purr but she cannot breath. Even with discharge out of her eyes, nose, mouth, and through the constant sneezes, she still purrs and tries to cheer me up. Her lungs are 40% filled with fluid and mucus. She has a severe case of pneumonia because the doctors couldn't give a darn about an animals health here. Luckily my personal Vet is a caring and educated Doctor who is trying to save this poor kitten's life. I have personally paid for all medications and treatment. Please keep her in your thoughts!

This place is a scam folks. A turn and burn operation. They get the animals in for free, don't put any time or effort to keep them healthy, give them more diseases, then they charge you $140 to hand them off to you with sicknesses that THEY CAUSE. They don't care about the product, it is just how fast they can get rid of the animals. It felt just like a McDonald's drive through window. My kitten was in perfect health before she went into the shelter. Her papers said she was 9 pounds. She only weighs 5 pounds now. She is near death and I am out an insane amount of money because they don't care about anything except making a profit. I could care less about the money but this poor animal does not deserve to suffer because of this evil company. The poor sanitary conditions, over crowding, and horrible Doctor staff is a disgrace to all animals. DO NOT ADOPT FROM HERE. THINK TWICE AND CHECK OUT OTHER PLACES.

The Dumb Friends League is a perfect example of an organization who cares, but lacks institutional control. I adopted a dog from them about a month ago, the dog was given a clean bill of health by their vets and I was sent on my way. When I got home I noticed a large mass on his back leg, when I called them to bring this up they fought with me about them treating it. When they finally did treat him it was lackluster service (obviously the vet was overworked). Unfortunately the dog did not work out for me and I needed to return him. I was expecting the dog to be put back up for adoption within a couple of days, he was not.
A friend of mine went in to adopt the dog (she doesn't think to highly of DFL either). They told her that that dog was still on medical hold. When I called to find out why the dog was still on medical hold they gave me a n excuse about the dog not being medically cleared, I tried to explain to them that the dog was treated by them he had a clean bill of health (they were looking at the mass again even after their vet said it was fine) they were rude and told me that "you gave the dog up" and then hung up on me. After finally calling the DFL vet (not rude and actually cares) it was worked out, they had given medical clearance 3 days ago and the adoption side did not change his status because "they had too many dogs". My friend finally was able to adopt the dog , he was in bad shape, he smelled like urine, was shaking, and scared. They did not apologize for his condition, and were rude once again. This is a poorly run organization, the people who work there do care, but because the organization takes in too many animals, the animals suffer. If you want to adopt a pet Colorado has a number of Rescues who take care of their dogs and cats and actually take time to get to know the dogs and make sure that you and the pet would be a good match. And if you are turning a dog or cat over to DFL please look into Rescues first (there is an all breed rescue in Colorado Springs), because I guarantee that the dog or cat you turn over will not be trea
ted properly. They will be locked in a kennel and based on the condition the dog I turned over was in, may not even be let out to go to the bathroom.

All I am saying make sure you have checked every option before adopting or turning a dog over to the Dumb Friends League.

I adopted a cat from DDFL in December and the experience couldn't have gone better. Facility is clean, well-maintained and spacious. Staff is helpful and accommodating. And my lil' gray fox, Sophie, is the best darn cat. Great experience. Highest recommendation.

A wonderful orgazation. The first time I found out a bout this place is when I went to cat show. They had some really nice kitty for adoption and I believe you just pay a small fee and it is always great to donate food and supplies to this place. The cats were so healthy looking. You can tell they our well taken care of. The Dumb leaque also. also has flyers and sometimes fund rasier their is always something you can do to help this organzation with these beautiful anmials

Denver Dumb Friends League adopts out dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals. They have a nice web-site (www.ddfl.org) that allows you to see what animals are adoptable. The animals do go fast though. If you see one you want, you may want to get over there in a hurry. Going during the week is better than the weekend. The weekend's tend to get very busy. The volunteers are nice and helpful. Also, the shelter is kept very clean and the animals are easy to view. They do screen before they will let you visit with a prospective pet. Their only downfall is they euthanize.
