Foothills Animal Shelter: A Beacon of Hope for Our Furry Friends

I would like to give a huge shout-out to Foothills Animal Shelter and their Friday Vaccination Clinic. I got my buddy there about 4 years ago. His name is Awesome (Pictured above). I took him there today and talking about a fantastic setup. I got every shot he needed for $40. Last year my vet (who REQUIRES a physical and then upcharges the vaccines to the point that my bill was almost $600! This vaccine clinic is awesome and I highly recommend it! 

Foothills Animal Shelter, the very place where you found your beloved canine companion Awesome four years ago, is more than just a shelter. It’s a community resource that offers a wide range of services to ensure the health and well-being of our furry friends.

Vaccination Clinics: An Affordable Solution for Pet Health

Every Friday, Foothills Animal Shelter hosts a low-cost Vaccination Clinic from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at their location in Golden, CO. This is an incredible initiative that makes pet healthcare accessible and affordable for all pet parents.

Rabies Vaccination: Protecting Pets and People

For just $20, you can protect your pet from rabies, a deadly disease that affects the brain and spinal cord of mammals, including dogs and humans. The rabies vaccine is a core vaccine, meaning it’s recommended for all dogs. It’s not just about protecting your pet; it’s also about public safety.

Distemper/Parvo (DA 2 PPV): A Lifesaver for Dogs

Even better, the shelter offers Distemper/Parvo (DA 2 PPV) vaccinations absolutely free of charge! Canine Distemper is a contagious and serious viral illness with no known cure, and Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can lead to life-threatening illness. The DA 2 PPV vaccine is essential for keeping your dog healthy and happy.

Bordetella: Preventing Kennel Cough

For $20, you can also protect your dog from Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough. This highly infectious disease causes inflammation of a dog’s upper respiratory system. The vaccine can help prevent your dog from contracting this uncomfortable and potentially serious condition.

Microchipping: A Ticket Home for Lost Pets

For just $35, Foothills Animal Shelter offers a microchipping service. A microchip could mean the difference between your pet being lost forever and a joyful reunion. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Licensing: A Requirement and a Responsibility

If your dog is 4 months or older, like our superstar Awesome, they can get licensed for just $20. Licensing is a requirement for all dogs within Jefferson County. It’s not just about following the law; it’s also a way to ensure that your pet can be identified and returned to you if they ever get lost.

Special Events: Free Vaccinations and More

Foothills Animal Shelter goes above and beyond to serve the community. They occasionally host special events where they provide free dog vaccinations. They once had an event on a Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. These events are a testament to their commitment to pet health and the community.

More Than Just a Shelter

Foothills Animal Shelter offers a wide range of services including pet adoption, affordable spaying and neutering, microchipping, and even a lost and found pet service. They are truly committed to their mission and work tirelessly every day of the year to ensure the well-being of our furry friends.

Isn’t it great to know that Awesome came from such a wonderful place? For more information, do check out their website here. Let’s give a big woof-woof to Foothills Animal Shelter for their incredible work! 🐾
