All Jefferson County impounds are taken to the Foothills Animal Shelter, unless sick or injured. Please call Animal Control if your pet is missing from unincorporated Jefferson County and you have been unable to locate your pet at the shelter. We recommend getting signs posted in the area where the animal was lost and checking with local vets.
Each year, more than 40,000 stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized in Colorado. You can help prevent this tragedy by donating to the Pet Overpopulation Fund. Simply check the box on your state tax form. Your donation will fund spay and neuter surgeries and education programs in underserved areas of Colorado to prevent litters of unwanted puppies and kittens. Every donation, no matter how small, will help Colorado's pets!
Visit the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund website for more information.
The Foothills Animal Shelter 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).
