On Saturday May 6th, AIS Industrial and Construction Supply came as a vendor to the Furry Scurry. The Furry Scurry is an annual event where thousands of families and dogs gather to enjoy fresh air, dog stunt shows, and a selection of unique pet supply vendors. It is the biggest fundraiser for their organizer, the Dumb Friends League, who are known in the Denver, CO area for the help they provide to underserved pets such as adoption, shelter services, and veterinary care.
A whopping 3,500 people and 2,000 dogs attended the 30th annual Furry Scurry which took place at Washington Park this year. All the attendees and supporters were able to raise over $630,000 and counting for homeless animals.
AIS Industrial came to the event equipped with giveaways, pooper scoopers, and bad jokes. “Makes a great not-so subtle gift, especially when you give it to your neighbor.” said Lewis, AIS Outside Salesman.
In the month of May AIS is donating $5 to the Dumb Friends League with every purchase of the Poophound Pooper Scooper. The Poophound’s unique one-handed raking arm control makes it easy to scoop and deposit dog waste directly into the bag, eliminating the need for a separate trash can.
The Dumb Friends League’s cause is close to our hearts at AIS. Every Friday we look forward to when employees bring their dogs into the office. We all love to watch as the newer dogs start to warm up to everyone. Overall, the event was a lot of fun and we loved seeing surprise guests such as AIS retirees, family members, and old friends.
