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
