Foothills Animal Shelter is an open-admissions facility, which means we never turn away an animal. We care for more than 9,000 orphaned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and critters every year with a compassionate team of staff and volunteers. We are a true community resource and offer a variety of services including pet adoption, Jefferson County pet licensing, affordable spaying and neutering, vaccinations, microchipping and lost and found pets. We are committed to our important mission and the life-saving work that we do every day of the year.
License Your Pet
A license not only helps get your lost pet home, it also supports Foothills Animal Shelter so we can continue to give life-saving care to thousands of homeless animals each year. This program is brought to you in partnership with your local animal control and management agencies.
A license is required for all dogs over the age of 4 months in unincorporated Jefferson County.
