Running for Homeless Pets
Former Marine Helps Support Our Medically-Fragile Animals
Mark C., one of our amazing volunteers, is running for us in the Colfax Marathon's 5K race! Mark, a Marine Corps veteran, started volunteering at the Shelter in December and says that working with our dogs is therapeutic for him. He's even been fundraising among his family and friends who would like to support the Shelter, but don't have time to volunteer!

Do you want to join Mark and dozens of others by fundraising for us in the Colfax Marathon? All money raised will support medically-fragile orphaned pets in need of specialized care, surgeries or treatments.

National Volunteer Appreciation Week
We Love Our Volunteers!
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Foothills Animal Shelter and we truly could not do what we do without them. Our amazing team of 450 volunteers put in more than 33,000 hours of service last year. They are involved in every facet of the organization, from assisting patrons in finding the perfect pet, to supporting our Health Care Team with surgical and patient care services. They collectively make our community a better place. Bow-wow, meow and thanks to them during National Volunteer Appreciation Week, April 12 - 18!

Pet Licensing
National Pet ID Week is April 19 - 25 and we want everyone to celebrate by licensing your pets! If you license your pet (new or renewal) in Jefferson County during April, you will receive a discount on collars and leashes sold at the Shelter! Click here for details.
