DENVER (KDVR) — The Humane Society of the South Platte Valley and the Dumb Friends League have returned to normal operations as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Appointments are no longer necessary to meet your new best friend at either shelter.

“We have an unusually high number of dogs currently available for adoption and more coming in every day,” said Katie Parker, vice president of operations at Dumb Friends League.

“We are ready to connect dogs with people, and we need the community’s help. We encourage anyone interested in adding a new pet to their life to consider adopting today,” Parker said.

Roxy, who the shelter said is a beautiful, very sweet senior dog, and snuggly big dog Theodore have been waiting for months at the Humane Society.
