   Folks came out and were very generous at two big homeless animal benefits that were held this weekend.

  In Colorado Springs, 500 people put on their best outfits and headed out to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort for the annual Fur-r-r Ball sponsored by News First 5 and 719Pets.com.  The emcee of the event was News First 5’s Lisa Lyden and the speaker was Victoria Stillwell from Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog”.   More than 120,000 dollars was raised for the animals at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.furry

  Earlier in the day 10-thousand people along with 5-thousand pets crowded into Washington Park for the “Furry Scurry” raising over 961-thousand dollars for the Denver Dumb Friends League.

  Way to go to all who came out and helped and if you weren’t able to make the fundraisers remember that both organizations are always in need, so donate anytime!
