Pups find forever home at Castle Rock event

The North Face and Dumb Friends League team up for adoption push

Posted

Some shoppers who visited the Outlets at Castle Rock came home with more than shopping bags on March 16.

Seven dogs from the Denver Dumb Friends League found new homes through an adoption event at The North Face store from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“I started working on this event because we knew it was a natural fit for both organizations,” said organizer Becky Johns via email. “Our customers are outdoor enthusiasts who like to explore Colorado, and we knew DFL has some pups who would go great with these sorts of families.”

Johns said the animal shelter originally brought six dogs to the event and all were adopted within two hours. The league brought two more, and one was adopted through the event. She believes the dog who was not adopted March 16 has already found a home.

The North Face also raised money for the Dumb Friends League through raffle sales and its employees volunteer for the Buddy Center in Castle Rock outside of work, Johns said.
