Foothills Humane Society’s Pets of the Week – Esme & Alfie

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Meet Esme, our beautiful Bluetick coonhound! She’s very affectionate. She will snuggle right up to you and roll over for lots of belly rubs. She also likes to spin in circles when she gets excited.

Esme is curious and loves to go on walks and sniff everything. She’s still learning not to pull on the leash, but we are working with her on that and she responds to corrections very well.

She knows some commands and she takes treats gently. She loves other dogs and is often in playgroups here. 

Esme is 8 years old, weighs 41 pounds, is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and ready for her forever home. 

If you’re interested in meeting with or adopting Esme, please submit an adoption application at



Meet Alfie, a very sociable, goofy guy who likes to hang out in the cat room! He’s always the first one to greet you at the door and always hoping for a little wet food or a Churu. 

This lovebug wants all the head and ear scratchies! He will beg for them at your feet, rubbing his little head against your legs. How can you resist? 

Alfie is great with his other cat pals in the free-roaming room, and he is so gentle we think he would be good with children. At this time we don’t know how he would do with dogs, but would probably do fine with a slow introduction. 

Alfie is 3 years old and weighs around 8 pounds. He’s neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his vaccinations.
