Foothills Animal Shelter

Foothills Animal Shelter is an open admission facility, meaning we never turn away an animal. We care for more than 12,000 cats, dogs, and critters every year with a compassionate team of staff and volunteers. We serve as a true community resource and offer a variety of services including:

  • Pet Adoption 
  • Lost and Found Pets
  • Pet Licensing (Jefferson County Residents)
  • Affordable access to spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, end of life services, and pet resources

As a loyal companion of Foothills Animal Shelter, the Friends of Foothills Animal Shelter’s sole purpose is to raise direct support for the Shelter and its important mission of saving lives. Friends of Foothills Animal Shelter is a 501c3 non-profit organization (FEIN 46-2809962). Any donation made helps the homeless pets at Foothills Animal Shelter and is tax-deductible.
