ATTENTION Good Humans:

Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, we operate our adoption visits on a waitlist in order to limit traffic throughout our facility. Please note that if the waitlist is full, you may not get in to see an animal that same day. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding. 

Foothills Animal Shelter is open to the public every day from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M.

Visits for adoptions will end at 4:30 P.M., daily, following the below protocols:

  • Only 2 families will be allowed in the adoption area at a time. Be prepared to wait outside or in your car after checking in with a Shelter staff member. We will be taking phone numbers to text when it is your turn to enter the Shelter.
  • Patrons will have 15 minutes to browse the adoptable pet selection and will only be allowed to visit with one species at a time with a maximum of visiting with 2 pets per visit.
  • Dog-to-dog visits will only be allowed with dogs in our care that require “Mandatory Dog Visit.”
  • A mask is required when entering the Shelter.

vaccine clinics, in-person licensing, and in-person microchipping canceled until further notice 


Adopt a Cat

Whether you are looking for a cat that is incredibly affectionate or more independent, calm or active, curious or cool – we have a match for you! We often have playful kittens available for adoption especially in the summer months. Would you rather give an older cat a loving home? Visit adult and senior cats that have a lot of love to give! Our selection of adoptable pets changes every day, so feel free to check back with us often.

As of January 19, patrons can begin the application process online for our cats available for adoption. Find a companion below to get started and remember, pets are continually added to our website so check back often!

Adoption Partners

Foothills Animal Shelter is fortunate to partner with several Petco and PetSmart stores to feature adoptable cats and critters! These locations help us place many more pets in loving homes. Click here for details.
