September 2019 Charity Spotlight: Foothills Animal Rescue
4Knines is a home-grown Arizona-based business, so naturally, we love to support Arizona animal rescues! Located in Scottsdale, AZ, Foothills Animal Rescue is a cage-free “adoption-guaranteed” nonprofit dedicated to saving lives through the rescue, care, and adoption of homeless cats and dogs.
Foothills Animal Rescue began its mission in 1995. Through the hard work of staff and a dedicated volunteer force, Foothills Animal Rescue was able to open a free-standing adoption center in 2010. They are committed to changing lives by saving lives and creating new “pawsibilities” for homeless animals.
Foothills Animal Rescue started as a foster-based organization, but because of generous donations, they now operate a state-of-the-art facility, the Brynne Smith Memorial Campus Adoption Center. Providing a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs awaiting their forever homes, the campus is a testament to Brynne’s love of animals. It is more than a building - it much - needed refuge for abandoned animals. Dogs can be seen romping in outside runs, cats are nestled on comfortable perches, and potential pet owners are meeting their new furry best friends.
Like many large cities around the globe, the metropolitan Phoenix area is home to thousands of undomesticated felines. While this overpopulation crisis cannot be solved overnight, Foothills Animal Rescue is working with other organizations to help find a solution. Partnering with FixAdoptSave, Foothills Animal Rescue participates in the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) campaign. Outdoor cats are humanely captured, spayed or neutered, ear-tipped, and returned to their outdoor home but are no likely able to contribute to the feline overpopulation crisis. TNR has been proven to be a humane and effective method for stabilizing and reducing outdoor cat populations.
We hope you will join 4Kninesin supporting Foothills Animal Rescue. There are so many ways to help! Volunteersare needed to care for dogs, support the front office, work in the boutique, and organize fundraising events. Much-needed items can be purchased from the Foothills Animal Rescue Amazon Wish List. To ensure homeless dogs and cats receive the love, shelter, food, and medical care they deserve, donationsare desperately needed. 4Knines is thankful to organizations like Foothills Animal Rescue for providing animals with the gift of hope.
