    Be Your Pet's First Responder

    Foothills Animal Shelter, one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area, will offer an American Red Cross Pet First Aid and CPR class to the public.

      About Foothills Animal Shelter

    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 municipalities within Jefferson County. The open-admissions facility (that never turns any animal away) cares for over 10,000 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 in August of 2010. Check out for more information and to view all of the animals up for adoption.
