Diesel Settles into His Forever Home
Kitten Born at the Shelter Finds His Place
Back in November, a cat came into the Shelter as a stray who appeared to be pregnant. We named her Lacey and less than a week later, she gave birth to five kittens. Lacey and her babies needed some extra TLC, so they went into foster homes with Geri and then Susan, two of our wonderful volunteers. For the next 8 weeks, Lacey, Geri and Susan cared for the kittens, teaching them to eat on their own and keeping them healthy. Once the kittens were weaned and were big enough, all five of the kittens were adopted, including Diesel.

Diesel was adopted by Andrew, a student at the Colorado School of Mines. Diesel is currently living with Andrew's mother, Jennifer, until he graduates in the spring. Andrew frequently comes home on the weekends to visit with Diesel, who is loving his time in his new home.

Love Your Pet: Spay and Neuter
Keep Your Pets Safe, Happy and Healthy
Although Foothills Animal Shelter offers and encourages affordable spay/neuter services all year round, February 24 is a big awareness day, World Spay Day. This month, the Shelter highlights the benefits of spaying or neutering for your pet's well-being. Spaying and neutering can help prevent behavior problems, elongate your pet's life and also combat pet overpopulation. Spaying and neutering could be the best decision you make for your home and community!

Attention cat owners! For the month of February, we are offering discounted spay/neuter surgeries for cats through Groupon. Click here to check out the deal.
