10 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Cat
Senior Cats Make Great Companions
Unfortunately, senior animals (usually grouped as 7 years and older) are often overlooked when people are searching for the perfect pet to bring home. However, adopting a senior pet has many benefits! Not only that, but adoption fees for senior cats, 7 years and older, are FREE during the month of August!

Here are our top ten reasons to adopt a senior cat:

10. What you see is what you get. With an older cat, you already know their full-grown size, so there's no guessing about how big they will get.

9. They are already housebroken. Senior cats are often already litter box trained and know how to behave in a home environment...

Microchip Your Pet
Help Your Pet Get Home If They're Ever Lost
If your pet doesn't have a microchip yet, make sure they get one! A microchip is a form of permanent identification that is inserted into the scruff of the animal's neck. When scanned, the microchip reveals the owner's contact information, thereby allowing lost pets to be safely reunited with their owners. The procedure, which is as simple as a routine vaccination, takes just a few minutes.

Foothills Animal Shelter can quickly and easily microchip your pet for just $35 anytime during business hours: Monday - Friday, 11 am - 7 pm and Saturday/Sunday, 10 am - 6 pm. Stop by to get a microchip today!

Pet Licensing
An annual pet license not only helps get your lost pet home, it also supports us so we can continue to give life-saving care to thousands of homeless animals each year. License Today
