Monday-Friday7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Foothills Animal Shelter, one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area, will celebrate “Be Kind to Animals Week” during the week of May 1-7. The purpose of this week is to commemorate the role animals play in our lives, promote ways to continue to treat them humanely, and encourage others to do the same. Although “Be Kind to Animals Week” is only celebrated once a year, Foothills Animal Shelter promotes the humane and kind treatment of animals every day. There are several ways the community can participate in this week, as well as promote animal welfare every day.
The mission of Foothills Animal Shelter, previously known as Table Mountain Animal Center, is to provide the best care possible for every animal that enters our doors. The organization is a true resource for the pet community — including low-cost spaying and neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, dog licensing, community room rental, and dog training. Founded in 1976, the public/private partnership provides animal control services to nine municipalities within Jefferson County. The open-admissions facility (that never turns any animal away) cares for over 9,000 animals annually and is one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area. The organization moved into a brand new 33,000-square-foot facility located at 580 McIntyre in Golden in August of 2010. Check out www.FoothillsAnimalShelter.org for more information and to view all of the animals up for adoption.
