The pandemic has not only impacted people, it has increased the need to support pets.  The Foothills Animal Shelter offers many services to animals and their owners.  In 2020, they had 3,910 adoptions, 2,359 vaccinations, returned 1,277 lost pets, and sheltered 5,739 pets.  They also partner with other organizations, such as the Colorado Safe Parking Lot Initiative, see the article above.  Foothills Animal Shelter assists the homeless with caring for their pets and even offers short term housing for pets.

The Jeffco Dems will be collecting pet food and supplies to support the Foothills Animal Shelter in their incredible work.  Please consider donating one of the following:  Unopened pet food, dog and cat treats, unused litter boxes, cardboard cat trees, or a gift card for PetCo, PetSmart or Pet Supplies Plus.  Please email one of the people below for a convenient drop off address.
