Family to sponsor pet adoption fees in honor of daughter


SCOTTSDALE – In December the Foothills Animal Rescue celebrated its first anniversary at the Brynne Smith Memorial Campus and Adoption Center in Scottsdale.  During that time the rescue has seen a nearly 50 percent increase in the number of animals adopted.
The rescue credits its success to the building’s non-traditional look and feel, priding itself in being a cage-free shelter.  Foothills Animal Rescue (FAR) has “cat rooms” and “doggie suites” instead of cages, with calming music played throughout the shelter.  The building design also has specialized air circulation, which provides people and pets with fresh air; not the smell typically associated with animal shelters.
The Smith Family graciously sponsored the Brynne Smith Memorial Campus and Adoption Center, after their daughter, Brynne, suddenly passed away.  Brynne's  family was eager to keep her memory alive by helping homeless pets in her honor.
To further honor Brynne, her family will be sponsoring the adoption fees for all dogs and cats adopted on Friday, Jan. 26., which is her birthday.  Adoption fees normally range from $50 to $200.
The adoption special is only for pets adopted at FAR’s Brynne Smith Memorial Campus, which is located at 10197 east Bell Road in Scottsdale. The shelter will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  All pets adopted from FAR are neutered or spayed, microchipped and vaccinated.
