Adoption Fees Waived - Summer Special
  
Free Pet Adoptions!
  
Adoption fees are waived on all adult cats and dogs (1 year & older)* for five days only during our "Spring into Summer" adoption special, Monday, June 10th through Friday, June 14th! Visit us weekdays from 11am-7pm (weekends from 10am-6pm).
  
Summer is a great time to adopt a pet. Long, lazy days allow plenty of time for playing, training and getting to know your family's newest member. So make this summer the best yet for your family and a homeless pet!

Foothills Animal Shelter is one of many Metro Denver Shelter Alliance animal shelters and rescue groups participating in this adoption special in the hope of placing as many pets as possible into new, loving homes this summer.

Help us spread the word and find homes for more pets by forwarding this email and sharing it on Facebook, Twitter or your favorite social network.

*Must complete an adoption application and receive approval to qualify.
  
June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month
   
Pick your PURRfect Price on any Adult Cat! 

While it's often true that cats choose their owners, you'll at least get to choose the adoption fee! Adopt any cat over the age of 6 months, and you can pick your PURRfect price.* As always, the fee includes spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip & health check.

Extra bonus - we are waiving all adoption fees on adult cats during our Spring into Summer promotion (June 10-14). Any amount you would like to give will be a donation used to help us care for thousands of homeless pets!

*Must complete an adoption application and receive approval to qualify. 
  
Every Day is a Life-Saving Day   
 
PennyEach year, 8,000 orphaned pets come through the doors of Foothills Animal Shelter for all different kinds of reasons. These animals range from adult dogs and cats to litters of 2-day-old puppies and kittens. Often times other creatures such as peacocks, chickens, rabbits, reptiles, turtles, birds and many more kinds of unique pets also make their way to our facility.
