Celebrating 700th Birthday (in dog years)
Who would have guessed that a kitten named Queenie would be the first of more than 2 million animals helped by the Dumb Friends League? One hundred years ago, Queenie was found in a basket at the home of Margaret Bradey, one of the women founders of the Dumb Friends League. These founders, led by Mrs. Jean Milne Gower, set the vision for what would become one of the most influential animal welfare organizations in the Rocky Mountain region.
“Throughout 2010, we are honoring our past, celebrating our present and embracing a future full of hope,” says Bob Rohde, Dumb Friends League president/CEO. “Hope that the next hundred years sees a time when every pet resides in a loving home, every child understands the meaning of compassion and every community values the animal companions whose lives depend on us.”
