The lawyers and legal professionals at The Harris Law Firm’s Evergreen Office volunteered their time this month to help prepare sheltered dogs and cats at the Foothills Animal Shelter for adoption. Attorneys Jennie Wray, Carrie Eckstein, Kelly Lynch, and paralegals Jennifer Irwin and Maureen McAllister are all ardent pet lovers who have adopted sheltered pets of their own. Last week, this group of compassionate women spent a morning working along trained volunteers at Foothills Animal Shelter (FAS) exercising the pets, cleaning the viewing areas, compiling adoptive materials, and performing a variety of tasks to assist the facility with adoption day! Everyone in the Evergreen Office at The Harris Law Firm enjoyed working with the FAS staff and volunteers, and meeting the animals who will hopefully soon become someone’s devoted companion.
About the Foothills Animal Shelter
Foothills Animal Shelter, located in Golden, Colorado is a well-operated and maintained organization that provides animal services to the Jefferson County community. The staff and volunteers of the shelter care for thousands of orphaned animals each year in their 33,000 square foot facility. The shelter also offers services that include pet licensing, animal education, spay and neutering, vaccinations, micro-chipping, and lost and found pets. Recently, a group of generous donors helped fund x-ray machines to use at the facility for quick and convenient x-rays. The donated equipment has eliminated the need to transport frightened and injured animals to nearby veterinary clinics.
