Reunion after Bluebell Fire
Families were thankful to bring pets safely home after Bluebell Fire evacuations were lifted.

Keeping pets safe during wildfire evacuations

Foothills Animal Shelter continues to be the evacuation site for emergency pet boarding within Jefferson County. Unfortunately, this season has already been unusually busy with wildfires.

We took in a total of 62 cats, kittens, dogs and rabbits needing shelter from Evergreen's Bluebell Fire. Shortly after, the Lime Gulch Fire near Conifer brought in an assortment of 20 dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, chickens, guinea fowl and goats. We are glad we can offer some peace of mind to pet owners as they are displaced from their homes during fire evacuations. Thanks to those who gave their support during these times.

Whitney the wonder puppyWhitney the wonder puppy   
Summer is the busiest adoption season for Foothills Animal Shelter. Many of our animals, especially the young ones, come and go quickly, finding their forever homes in a matter of days or weeks. But there are exceptions, such as Whitney, a very special six-week old pup.
