This year we are again part of Colorado Gives Day on December 8, 2015. Gives day has one very convenient feature that allows you to make your donation now, but have it become effective on December 8, the actual day! For all donations counted as received on December 8, we receive a small match from the Community First Foundation. So please take a moment for our silly kittens and deserving adults. Thanks so much.
Today through the end of December we are in the Give Guide for donations (*listed as the Feline Rescue Network.)
Get great incentives when you donate as well.

Train with Trust: Introduction to clicker training for cats
Clicker training is an effective method for training any animal. While popular with dogs, cat owners are less familiar with the benefits of positive reinforcement training for their feline friends. This hands-on workshop will teach you the how and why of clicking for cats.
We decided to have an online auction since the Wine and Paint Party had fewer people than the number of items we had collected — 14 items. There is something for everybody.
Starts: Aug 2, 2015 8:39 pm
Ends Aug 16, 2015 8:39 pm
The auction is through Winning Cause, who only handles non-profits so they can keep costs low and pass that along to us. This is open to the public, so please let your friends and family know as well. Check it out here: https://www.winningcause.org/lookwhatthecatbroughtin. Let the bidding begin!
We began business in 2008 with a passion for hard-luck cats and a desire to make a difference. We have come a long way. Our journey sped up once we moved into the building on Boulder, affirming our dream and inspiring us to reach further. But through all of this, the larger population of Colorado Springs remains unaware of our existence.
Not for much longer! We have applied for the highly publicized IndyGive event for a few years and this year WE MADE IT into the ranks of non-profits who will be included. We are doing back-flips (not exactly, but close) over this huge development for us. We will gain valuable exposure and lots of training, but it will be hard work over the next six months.
