On Saturday May 6th, AIS Industrial and Construction Supply came as a vendor to the 30th annual Furry Scurry. The Furry Scurry is an event where thousands of families and dogs gather to enjoy a walk around the park, dog stunt shows, and a selection of 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.
This year’s event saw an attendance of 3,500 people and 2,000 dogs, signifying a substantial turnout at Washington Park. 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. “The Poophound Pooper Scooper makes a great not-so subtle gift, especially when you give it to your neighbor.” joked Lewis, AIS Outside Salesman.
In the month of May 2023, AIS is donating $5 to the Dumb Friends League with every purchase of the Poophound Pooper Scooper. The scooper’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 mission at the Dumb Friends League resonates deeply with AIS. Every Friday, the employees eagerly look forward to when their colleagues bring their dogs into the office. Overall, the event was enjoyable, and the team loved seeing surprise guests such as AIS retirees, family members, and old friends.
