The Denver Dumb Friends League is growing!
The Denver Dumb Friend’s League is growing! The Quebec Street facility in Denver will grow to 111,000 square feet, but inside that space is a revolution for some of the services.
The medical facility is doubling in size and will be equipped with special rooms for spay/neutering, dental work, and x-rays.
“We’re going to be a resource for all the other shelters in Colorado which we always try to do, but we’re going to be able to do even more,” said Dr. Apryl Steele, CEO at the DDFL. “Having the capacity and building the collaboration and serving all the animals that come to us, that part I’m super excited about.”
The DDFL was founded in 1910 and was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called “Our Dumb Friends League.” At the time, the term “dumb” was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, the DDFL is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Over the years, the DDFL has been able to significantly reduce the number of homeless pets, find homes for more pets, and support an overall better quality of life for animals in the community.
Please visit the DDFL website at www.ddfl.org if you are considering adopting a new furry friend to add to your family or if you would like to join us in donating to this very worthy organization.

2017 Client Appreciation Event
The 2017 Client Appreciation Event was held at the Willis Case golf course clubhouse again this year. In spite of the cold and snowy January weather, we had another great turnout. We enjoyed presentations by Cenk Toroslu from Principal Funds who covered an Equity Market outlook for 2017, Scott Whitehouse from PIMCO funds who discussed the Fixed Income markets and Matt Sheffield from Fidelity Funds who spoke about Active vs. Passive fund management. The always popular "fabulous prizes" trivia game was a fun way to cap off the evening again this year. Check out our blog for the answers to those trivia questions if you missed them.
The 2016 Client Appreciation Event was held in January at the Willis Case golf course clubhouse. A packed house enjoyed hearing from Lynn and from Matt Mackay of Deutsche Funds on their views of the market in general. As usual, the “fabulous prize" trivia game was a big hit with the audience. There was a special presentation by Mike Resnick of Virtus Funds. He presented "Diversification Means Always Having to Say You're Sorry." The highlight of the evening was Jeff Stebbins from Wells Fargo discussing strategies to protect yourself from Identity Theft. Some attendees remarked that this was the best event of all the ones that we have done.
