License Your Pet Today
License your pet today!
If lost, could your pets tell anyone where they live? Could they hop on a bus or call a cab? In a perfect world, we'd like to prevent lost animals from ever ending up at Foothills Animal Shelter. We also want to ensure that you and your pet are never separated. So we offer an annual pet license to help you and Fido or Fluffy enjoy a long, happy companionship together.

Happy Tails - Pet License Reunites Lost Dog
Labrador RetrieverIn early July, a Labrador Retriever mix was unfortunately lost in Centennial, some 20 miles from its Lakewood home. After making the long journey back to Lakewood, the Lab couldn't find its owner and was running loose for several days, lost, skittish and afraid.

When Lakewood Animal Control was finally able to catch the dog, a pet license was the crucial link in reuniting the Lab with its owner. The license provided the owner's name and contact information. Having the license really paid off, Lakewood Animal Control Officer Bonnie Martin said. The dog and its owner were thrilled to see each other.
Did you know your pet's Jeffco license can be traced online by anyone who might find your lost animal? The pet could be returned directly home to you without stepping paw into the Shelter!

$15 Could Save Your Pet's Life
Kitten receiving a vaccineRabies is a deadly virus that is affecting more and more animals throughout Colorado. Any warm-blooded animal, such as wildlife, pets - and even humans - can be at risk. Protect your entire family by having your pet vaccinated for rabies.
Visit your veterinarian or come to one of our low-cost clinics. We offer $15 rabies vaccines which protect your pet for one year (or three years if their current rabies vaccine has not expired).
