Mission & History
Our mission is to save lives through the rescue, care & adoption of homeless cats & dogs.
Foothills Animal rescue began its mission to save lives in Cave Creek, Arizona in 1995 as a foster based organization dedicated to saving lives of homeless dogs and cats. Through hard work and resounding dedication by staff and volunteers, Foothills Animal Rescue was able to grow and open a standing adoption center in 2010. The Resale Boutique was a much valued addition to support our efforts and provide resources to make an impact.
Our journey continued with the opening of the Brynne Smith Memorial Campus Adoption Center in December 2016. It is more than a building, it provides a safe haven to homeless dogs and cats awaiting their forever home, and a testament to the important role the companion animals play in our lives.
Foothills Animal Rescue is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that advances our mission through fiscal responsibility and that our rescue is in line with best practices in animal welfare.
