    Foothills Animal Shelter to Hold FREE Adoption Day

    Saving More Lives through the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge

    Foothills Animal Shelter has been selected as one of only 50 animal shelters across the country to participate in the fifth and final year of the ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. From June 1 – August 31, 2014, the Shelter will try to go above and beyond saving more animals’ lives than ever before compared to the same three months in 2013.

    This nationwide Challenge asks shelters (and their communities) to adopt more homeless cats and dogs, reunite more lost pets with their families and transfer more animals to rescue partners.

    Foothills Animal Shelter is competing for a chance at more than $600,000 in grant funding—with prizes ranging from $1,000 to a grand prize of $100,000. If funding is won, it will support animal care services such as foster care, specialty veterinary services, spay/neuter, medications, food, kennel care, evacuation services and animal training and enrichment.

    To support this campaign, Grandma’s Frozen Noodles is the proud June sponsor. President Moni Piz Wilson has generously pledged $5 for every animal adopted, reunited or transferred from Foothills Animal Shelter during the entire month of June.
