Foothills Animal Shelter, with support from the Animal Assistance Foundation, is launching a new mobile spay/neuter program called A Simple Fix. Starting July 27, the Shelter’s large mobile unit will host 24 clinics within the community through June of 2013. In partnership with Jefferson County Animal Control, Westminster Animal Management and Wheat Ridge Animal Control, these clinics will provide subsidized spay/neuter services.
“We are thrilled to take our affordable spay and neuter program out to convenient locations making it easy for pet owners who are hurting financially. We realize many times struggling cat and dog owners would not spay or neuter their pets if this kind of program didn’t exist,” says Heather Cameron, Foothills Animal Shelter’s Executive Director. She adds, “Thanks to the Animal Assistance Foundation, A Simple Fix is now a reality and a fantastic addition to what we’re already offering the pet community.”

About Foothills Animal Shelter
The mission of Foothills Animal Shelter is to provide the best care possible for every animal that enters the doors. The organization is a true resource for the pet community — including affordable spaying and neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, dog licensing, community room rental and dog training. The open-admissions facility (that never turns any animal away) cares for nearly 10,000 orphaned animals annually. The organization moved into a brand new 33,000-square-foot facility in August of 2010. Visit www.FoothillsAnimalShelter.org for more information.
