Friends of Foothills Animal Shelter
Funded in 2021 and 2022
Foothills Animal Shelter is a socially conscious, open admission shelter serving Jefferson County, CO. They provide essential services such as adoptions, lost pet reunification, low-cost public vaccinations, and more. They also transfer animals to their facility every week from shelters that are suffering from overcrowding and a lack of resources. These animals are then given the time and care they need to find their new homes. They collaborate with good humans like you to improve the lives of 7,600+ pets each year, creating a better community for all.
Foothills Animal Shelter is incredibly grateful to have the support of The Grey Muzzle Organization. This grant will assist in providing dental surgeries for senior dogs, which will improve their health, comfort, and likelihood of adoption. Funding will also help to launch a Return for Care program for senior dogs in need of dental treatment. Once adopted, senior dogs will be welcomed back to the shelter for follow-up care, including dental surgery. This will reduce the time senior dogs spend in the shelter and ensure they get the dental care they need to be healthy and happy in their new forever homes.
