Abused and Abandoned Animals Need Your Help, Now!

You Can Make a Difference

Foothills Humane Society is a private nonprofit organization. We rely on the support of our friends in the community to fund and promote our programs.

The good news is that the pet overpopulation problem is SOLVABLE. We’re chipping away at it year after year with our Spay/Neuter Assistance program. Our goal is a community where every companion animal is wanted, treated with respect and is in a permanent, loving home.  Our goal is No More Homeless Pets.

The following are some of the ways that you can help make a difference:

Work with Animals on the Road

This Roadies crew take animals to off-site adoption events and find great homes for them. Flexible and fun.

Shelter Dog Training

This fun group of training volunteers partners with a dog during its Shelter stay and trains the dog in basic manners and commands to make it more adoptable. Classes meet Saturday Mornings, but volunteers are encouraged to work with their dog partner more often, if possible.

For more information contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (828) 863-4444 ext. 102.
