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.

Also be sure to read our adoption process and download an adoption profile.

How Hard is it to Walk a Dog?

How Hard is it to Walk a Dog?

Walking peacefully along a path with your best friend; you are enjoying the fresh air, your dog is sniffing the grass and greeting other dogs. This is what every human hopes for when you venture out for a walk. Sometimes, it doesn’t quite work out.
