Foothills Animal Shelter, one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area, is gearing up for November’s Adopt a Senior Pet Month. The launch of Pawsitively Young at Heart will take place during this special month to help promote senior homeless pets. DE“TAILS:” When: November 1 – November 30 What: All senior pet adoptions (any pet over the age of 8) receives $20 off the regular adoption fee. For senior cats, their adoption fees will only be $5 and only $60 for dogs. Note: The spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip and health check will still be included in this much reduced fee. Where: Foothills Animal Shelter (580 McIntyre Street, Golden, 80401) Why: Many times older pets are harder to adopt. However, there are many advantages to owning an older pet. They can already be housebroken, litter box trained and know how to behave in a home setting. Their temperament is also typically calmer and a new adopter will not have to go through the time-consuming kitten and puppy phase. Contrary to popular belief, an old dog can be taught new tricks. Animals of any age enjoy learning. In summary, older pets can make terrific companions.
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 www.FoothillsAnimalShelter.org for more information and to view all of the animals up for adoption.
