Here, kitty-kitty! If you love cats, head to the Dumb Friends League’s ninth annual CatFest on July 8, a free celebration of feline friends and a pet adoption drive (the group’s goal is to finalize 175 cat adoptions the week leading up to CatFest).

On the agenda: clicker-training demonstrations, a photo booth, expert advice from pet behavior and veterinary specialists, and yummy treats for both you and your cats and kittens.

“Cats make wonderful, loving companions,” says Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League, a nonprofit animal welfare organization that works to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. “CatFest is a great way for the Dumb Friends League to celebrate cats and highlight our commitment to providing compassionate care to help felines find forever homes.”

Waived adoption fees for adult cats (1 year and older) will be offered and each adoption includes a spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip implant and a free follow-up office visit with a participating veterinarian.

The event takes place July 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dumb Friends League Quebec Street Shelter in Denver. For more information, visit or call 303-751-5772.
