Yesterday, Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden took in over 25 dogs from the Adams County Humane Society so the Adams County shelter could make room for Commerce City pets being evacuated due to historic flooding.
About 4:30 PM yesterday the dogs arrived at Foothills and were healthy and happy and ready to be adopted. The Adams County Animal Shelter is located at 10705 Fulton in Brighton and is available for displaced residents who need a place to hold their pets while they seek alternative shelter. Those with large animals, such as horses, can take them to the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock.
To see these dogs and the many other amazing animals available for adoption at Foothills Animal Shelter, visit the shelter located at 580 McIntyre Street in Golden. Use the 6th Avenue and Indiana exit, then take the 6th Avenue frontage room to the shelter.
