Adoptable Cats

Looking for a furry feline friend? We don't blame you! Cats are all around great companions that dig living in Colorado. Seriously, they can watch the snow falling from the warmth of their kitty bed which is perfectly perched in a sunlit room next to their food, water and buzzer to summon you in case they need something.

Just take a look at some of these cool cats and prepare to open up your home so they can take it over! Once you've identified a pet that you're interested in, be sure to read our adoption process and download an adoption profile.

Check back often as our adoption pages are updated daily!

Preparing Your Pets to Return to Work

Preparing Your Pets to Return to Work

It is true that pet adoptions have spiked nation-wide during the pandemic, one of the few silver-linings of this tragic situation. As families have more time at home to transition a pet into their lives, and have greater need for the emotional support and physical comfort of a pet, it makes sense that this trend is occurring. But, as communities begin re-opening and people are returning to work, it will be important to make sure your pets are prepared for the adjustment. In other words, as the country re-opens people need to make sure animal shelters don’t fill up again from pets you no longer have time, interest or patience for.

Spay/Neuter Returns
