It's hard to make room for nearly 8,000 wagging tails, 16,000 wandering eyes, and 32,000 batting paws, but Foothills Animal Shelter always finds a way. Due to its open-admissions policy—which means that no animal is turned away—the shelter welcomes roughly 8,000 homeless animals per year, treating them to housing and the attention of its professionals and volunteers. Once inside, the animals are given sanctuary, shots, and the chance to steal the hearts of potential adopters with their puppy-dog eyes.
But the caretakers at Foothills Animal Shelter don't just wait for needy pets to find them. They also perform such preventive measures as neutering, spaying, licensing, and vaccinations in order to ensure that pets with homes remain healthy and out of harm's way. This motive also drives the shelter's microchip services, which provide electronic identification should pets become lost, and training that teaches animals to follow commands and avoid white outfits after Labor Day.
Thanks to a dedicated, trained staff and convenient amenities such as live webcams, K-9 Castle earned a spot as a top-five finalist in the Denver A-List's Best Pet Sitting category three years in a row. Owners Michelle Romero and Rita Sandoval lead a loyal team, all of whom are trained in pet first aid and dog behavior, making them better able to keep animals safe and teach canines to use the correct fork at the dinner table. In addition to daytime and overnight care, the crew can train pups and treat them to such grooming services as teeth brushing, nail trimming, and baths with a blow-dry.
At K-9 Cuts Dog Grooming Salon, every grooming package includes a bath, haircut, and brush out to get coats gleaming, as well as an ear cleaning and nail trim. Owners can also put together their own grooming regimen by choosing treatments a la carte, especially if their dog is short-haired and doesn't need a haircut or has a nail-biting habit and doesn't need a trim.
