The New Foothills Animal Shelter is Open for Business

The brand new Foothills Animal Shelter celebrated its grand opening on Saturday morning.  It really is a beautiful building with great space for all of the animals that spend time there.  This has been an impressive multi-jurisdictional effort – a whole bunch of local government folks from across Jefferson County working together – along with huge community support.  Kudos to the City of Golden’s own Finance Director, Jeff Hansen, for playing such an important role on the Foothills Animal Shelter board of directors and working so hard as part of the team that made this new facility happen.  The new building is very visible from 6th Avenue just west of the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.

Arvada Deputy Police Chief (and president of the Foothills Animal Shelter board of directors) Gary Creager was the master of ceremonies at the Foothills Animal Shelter grand opening.
