    Foothills Animal Shelter Offers Low-Cost Dog Training Classes

    Foothills Animal Shelter, a true resource for the Denver metro pet community, is spreading the word about one of its many low-cost services – dog training! Many times dog owners simply want to brush up on their training techniques to help strengthen the bond they share with their canine friends. Foothills Animal Shelter’s bigger goal is to help keep dogs in the home while also offering a quality and needed service to the community.

    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 the 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 works with animal control agencies and municipalities within Jefferson County. The open-admissions facility (that never turns any animal away) cares for nearly 10,000 animals annually.

    The organization moved into a brand new 33,000-square-foot facility in Golden near 6th Avenue and Indiana in August of 2010.
