Foothills Animal Shelter is an open-admissions facility (never turning away an animal) and one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area – taking in 8,000 animals each year. We are a true community resource that offers a broad variety of animal welfare programs and services. Low-cost spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchipping and dog licensing are some of the services offered to the public.
Additionally, we work closely with animal welfare officers across Jefferson County to keep our neighborhoods safe and to educate the community. Golden, Morrison, Edgewater, Westminster, Arvada, Lakewood, unincorporated Jefferson County and Wheat Ridge are all communities served by the Shelter.
