FHS to take part in National Adoption Weekend, June 5-7

Foothills Humane Society (FHS) will participate in the ASPCA National Adoption Weekend from Friday, June 5 through Sunday, June 7 to encourage the public to safely complete adoptions from home amid the Covid-19 crisis.

During this time, FHS will process on-line applications, showcase available pets on Facebook and Instagram and welcome potential adopters to meet our available dogs in our spacious outdoor pavilion and cats by visiting the Catio. FHS’s shelter protocol is adoption by appointment only and the facilities team uses hospital-grade disinfectant throughout the shelter and high-touch areas are being cleaned throughout the day.

Susan Walahora, President, Foothills Humane Society Board of Directors says “Foothills Humane Society is excited to participate in the #adoptfromhome ASPCA initiative. During these unusual times, finding safe and creative ways to uphold our mission of matching our dogs and cats with their forever homes is critical. FHS has many wonderful, healthy dogs and cats to choose from and we ask our community to please consider us when looking to adopt your new best friend!”

Visit ASPCA.org/AdoptFromHome for more information about the ASPCA National Adoption Weekend, including a comprehensive map of participating animal shelters and rescue groups. This initiative will encourage the public—including people currently caring for foster animals—to complete adoptions from their homes to safely place thousands of homeless dogs, cats and horses into adoptive homes across the country. During this period of uncertainty, it is more important than ever for people to consider adopting a new animal not only for their benefit, but also to free up space and resources for other vulnerable animals in need.
