The FHS adoption process will be followed, waiving the fees. Potential adopters are encouraged to get preapproved by completing an on-line application, which can be found on the FHS website. If not preapproved, some animals may not be taken home the day of the adoption.  

Most of the cats and dogs at FHS are ready for adoption, however, there are some who are being treated medically and some that are still in training. Those animals will not be a part of the Free Love adoption event.  

“With this fee-waived adoption event, we are hoping to generate interest and curiosity within our community about our shelter and the benefits of providing a loving home for a dog or cat in need. There have been questions raised about the quality of homes with fee-waived adoptions, but it should be noted that published studies have shown that fee-waived promotions increase adoptions without compromising the quality of care that animals receive. As is our practice in every case, adoption counselors will meet with each and every adopter. Foothills is committed to finding the best match for the mutual benefit of animals and owners alike,” says Executive Director Michele Brulé.
