"Foothills Animal Rescue is committed to compassionate and humane treatment of dogs and cats in need through rescue, shelter, fostering and adoption within Maricopa County."

About Our Shelter:

Foothills Animal Rescue (FAR) is a non-profit, volunteer organization established in 1995. Foothills Animal Rescue is committed to compassionate and humane treatment of dogs and cats in need through rescue, shelter, fostering and adoption within Maricopa County.

We operate as a limit admission adoption guarantee, by sheltering in our adoption center and fostering displaced animals in the homes of dedicated volunteers until owners are located or suitable new homes are found. Medical care, spay and neuter surgery, basic immunizations, micro-chipping, and TLC are part of the total care package provided for each companion animal in our care. We also do some basic temperament testing and personality assessment so that potential adopters can be provided with a better total picture of each animal offered for adoption.

We recently purchased our first facility and Foothills Animal Rescue (FAR) is a non-profit, volunteer organization established in 1995.

We also do some basic temperament testing and personality assessment so that potential adopters can be provided with a better total picture of each animal offered for adoption.

We recently purchased our first facility and will be open June 2010. When completed, the facility will house over 100 animals. This includes:
• 3 cat living rooms, one for FeLV positive cats
• 6 dog suites, one activity room and one socialization room
• A reception area and retail store
• An intake facility for new arrivals with isolation rooms for sick animals.

Our Resale Boutique is our primary source of income. Amazing treasures ranging from clothing to housewares are found here and all monies go to support the animals.

Our main objectives this year were created at FAR’s yearly Strategic Planning session and include:
• Doubling adoptions at our facility
• Creating a full operating manual and training all staff and volunteers in the new policies
• Diversifying and increasing our Board of Directors
• Increase public relations and marketing, especially in light of our new facility and support in communities we have typically not reach out to
• Increasing the number of fosters and volunteers
• Increasing bequests, individual donors, corporate relationships
• Increasing collaborations within the community

Our Adoption Process:

All animals offered for adoption by FAR have been given medical attention and are in good health.

Dogs are vaccinated, neutered or spayed, microchipped and given any medical care needed. Adoption fees are used to directly save more animals. The adoption fee for one dog one to 6 years old is $175 ; 6 + years $125, puppies are $200

Cats are vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV, spayed or neutered, microchipped and given any medial care needed. The adoption fee for one cat over one year of age is $35, kittens are $75. Our FELV + cats are free (with the hopes of a donation to Foothills).

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
