  • License Your Dog


    In July 2013, Jefferson County transferred the administration of the County’s pet licensing program to Foothills Animal Shelter. The license continues to help get your lost pet home and also provides funds to the Shelter to support the life-saving care they provide for thousands of homeless animals each year.  You will now receive renewal notices from PetData, Foothills Animal Shelter’s licensing partner.

    Foothills Animal Shelter

    The Foothills Animal Shelter View exit disclaimer policy page for links to third-party websites. serves the Jefferson County community, including the cities of Wheat Ridge, Arvada, Golden, Lakewood, Westminster, Morrison, Mountain View, Edgewater and unincorporated areas. The staff works to reunite lost pets with their owners and to adopt stray animals into new, loving, permanent homes.

    Foothills Animal Shelter is conveniently located at 580 McIntyre Street in Golden (off of 6th Avenue (HWY-6) and Indiana Street).
