Foote appears in the Fineville Animal shelter bringing Shadow and a panicking Chance inside, while Sassy escapes. Foote calls out Sassy while holding a net, but he can't find her and goes inside and watch TV. Sassy sneaks inside and finds Shadow in a cage and frees him and they goes to find Chance who was been medical treated due to his muzzle got pinned by a porcupine earlier and run into Foote who then asks Sassy how she get inside and she runs past him and he tells Shadow that he will back for him. Sassy distracts Foote, while Shadow goes to free Chance now quill-free and rescue Sassy who gets capture by Foote, but Chance and Shadow tackle him freeing Sassy and they escape through the backyard. Foote grabs a net and chases after them, grabs Chance due to his collar stuck between the fence. But Shadow leaps near the fence with a growl starting Foote, causing him to lose his balance allowing Chance to escape just as another animal shelter staff Kirkwood arrives to assist him. They watch helplessly Chance, Shadow and Sassy escaping without realizing that their owners the Seavers are on their way to pick them.
Foote was not seen afterwards, assumed he informed the Seavers who just arrive that they escaped and he and the other staff apologizes to the Seavers for failing to stop Chance, Shadow and Sassy from escaping.
