Animal lovers are invited to tune in to 9NEWS on Thursday, March 1, for the annual Dumb Friends League Have a Heart for Homeless Pets Telethon.
The telethon will air during news programming and commercial breaks on 9NEWS KUSA/KTVD from 5 a.m. to 10:35 p.m. and feature adoptable pets and stories on how support from our compassionate community helps transform the lives of animals. Plus, from 10 – 11 a.m. on March 1, the Dumb Friends League will take over KUSA’s “Colorado & Company” with adorable pets, guest interviews and incredible second-chance stories of homeless pets and horses right here in our community.
Last year, the Dumb Friends League saved more than 19,000 homeless pets and horses, many of which received vital medical care, behavior training and foster care. Funds raised from this year’s telethon will help the Dumb Friends League provide compassionate care and life-changing services to animals in need.
“We open our doors to all animals—whether they are old, ill, injured, unwanted, neglected, lost or in special need of care,” said Dr. Apryl Steele, Dumb Friends League President and CEO. “Support from our friends at 9NEWS and the community allows us to provide vital services and second chances for homeless pets and horses.”
Pet lovers who are unable to watch the telethon can still make donations by visiting ddfl.org/telethon or by calling (303) 751-5772.
The Have a Heart for Homeless Pets Telethon is sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition and will be hosted by 9NEWS KUSA/KTVD on-air talent.
