“I am excited to be a part of such an amazing and compassionate team. In the new year, we look forward to continued growth and helping the homeless animals in our community,” said Ms. Valenzuela in a prepared statement.

For the past 23 years, Foothills Animal Rescue has been dedicated to reducing the homeless pet population in the community through rescue, care and adoption services, noted the release.

The agency provides a temporary, safe haven to dogs and cats while finding them loving families and permanent homes, the release stated.

In December 2016, the organization moved to Brynne Smith Memorial Campus and Adoption Center, 10197 E. Bell Road in the McDowell Mountain Ranch area of north Scottsdale.
