Be Humane T-shirt From the Dumb Friends League of Denver, Colorado

One awesome way to support animal rescue organizations is to purchase items they have for sale. Generally, the proceeds go directly to support animals in need. Moreover, by wearing a t-shirt with the logo of your favorite rescue group, or wearing a shirt with an animal welfare message, you help raise awareness of issues in animal welfare.

The Dumb Friends League/Humane Society of Denver has an online store to help raise proceeds to help the shelter animals in their care.

This t-shirt had been on my Christmas wishlist, but alas, I didn't get it. So, I bought it for myself. As you can see, this white women's t-shirt has a beautiful design featuring the colorful photographs of two shelter dogs and a shelter cat. It also features the message, "Be Humane," and the logo of the Dumb Friends League/Humane Society of Denver.

While I was at it, I also purchased this large coffee mug for my fiancee. It features a beautiful photograph of a golden retriever and the message "Don't Be Cruel," as well as the logo of the Dumb Friends League/Humane Society of Denver.

I am always stunned by the gorgeous designs on the items featured in the Dumb Friends League Online Store, and I know my purchase is helping animals in need. Check out their store today!

About Dumb Friends League/Humane Society of Denver, from their website:

"Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League is a national leader in providing humane care to lost and abandoned animals, rescuing sick, injured and abused animals, adopting pets to new homes, helping pets stay in homes, and educating pet owners and the public about the needs of companion animals.

The Dumb Friends League is the largest animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region, welcoming tens of thousands animals to our two shelters. We turn no animals away.

At our main shelter in southeast Denver and our Buddy Center in Castle Rock, dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets enjoy the comfort of a nurturing environment in state-of-the-art facilities."

What's in a name? from the Dumb Friends League/Humane Society of Denver website:

"When our organization was founded in 1910, it was named after a London, England, animal shelter called Our Dumb Friends League. In those days, the term "dumb" was often used to refer to those who were unable to speak.

Although the term "dumb" is not generally used with that meaning today, we've kept our name, because it has significant recognition among Colorado residents.

The mission statement of the Dumb Friends League includes these words: “speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves," meaning our companion animal friends.

We are a private, nonprofit organization, and thanks to the support of many individual, foundation and corporate donors, we continue to make a big difference for the people and animals in our community and beyond."

If you live near Denver, Colorado, please consider adopting a pet from the Dumb Friends League.

I applaud your efforts. Our family adopted a beagle from a rescue in our area. I'm so glad we did. Her name is "Karma" and is a wonderful member of the family. Best wishes.
