ADOPT

If you are interested in adopting one of the animals you’ve seen online, please complete our online adoption application. Please note that many of our dogs and cats live in foster homes, not at our adoption center. You may email us by clicking here if you wish to meet these pets that are in foster homes and we’ll be happy to arrange a visit!

VOLUNTEER

Foothills Humane Society is a private nonprofit organization. We rely on the support of our friends in the community to fund our programs. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Through these donations, we have saved the lives of thousands of abandoned cats and dogs, and helped bring the love and loyalty of animals to children, families and seniors.

FOSTER

By placing a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, or other animal into a foster home, we’re able to expand our capacity to save even more lives. We make fostering fun, easy, and rewarding. All expenses are covered, and you can really help the mission of Foothills Humane Society!

DONATE

Your gift to Foothills Humane Society is immediately put to use helping animals in need and saving lives. Donations are used to provide medical care, food, and shelter for hundreds of animals. It also helps support our many community outreach programs aimed at keeping pets in loving homes. Please consider giving today and be a part of our lifesaving efforts!

Adoption Information

Your new pet’s adoption fee will be based on age and species. Unlike many adoption centers, FHS does not require increased adoption fees for purebred or ‘designer breed’ dogs or cats. Our adoption fees are also much less than those at other shelters, even though they are fully vetted, trained and ready to go home.

Our adoptions fees are as follows:

  • Dogs age 4 months and older are $80
  • Puppies under 4 months are $100
  • Cats age 4 months and older are $40
  • Kittens under 4 months are $60

We often hold special promotions when these fees are lowered, waived or adopters ‘name their own fee’ for adoptions. Your adoption fee covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery, testing, vaccinations, and microchipping. Your new pet has received all the love, attention, medications, and veterinary care they need to join their new family!
