We were founded in 2008 to find loving homes for cats who otherwise would not, by giving them a chance at our shelter. We were the first shelter in Colorado Springs serving cats exclusively. We are proud to be a limited admission, adoption guaranteed shelter. Look What the Cat Brought In exists to care for cats that require longer shelter stays than a traditional shelter can provide, securing adoption when each cat is healthy and emotionally ready. 2013, a third of the cats we rescued came from extreme hoarding situations.
We transform a medically needy cat into a healthy, happy cat ready to join your home as a beloved family pet. Our veterinary partners reverse or minimize years of neglect and pain — from kittens with fractures to seniors with terrible teeth. Though many arrived at high risk for euthanasia, our live release rate was 97 percent in 2016.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit and Colorado Spring’s first shelter founded exclusively for cats. We find loving homes for hard-luck cats who need a little extra time and TLC. We also educate the public on cat care. Our cats sincerely thank you for giving them a second chance.
We listen to cats and hear what they try to tell us. If they are hurt, we heal them. No cat makes the choice to suffer. The choice is made for them through neglect or abandonment. We make a different choice for our cats when they are in pain, ill or injured. With our veterinary partners we provide needed medical treatments and pain relief so our cats can achieve lives of health and contentment in loving homes.
Our cats come from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, from the City of Montrose Animal Control Facility, Second Chance Animal Rescue Foundation in Lamar Colorado, Lucky Paws in Arvada, Colorado, City of Concordia Kansas Animal Control, Hearts United for Animals in Nebraska, Laramie Peak Animal Shelter in Wyoming. We also take private surrenders, but our priority is to retrieve cats from shelters where the live release rate is less than 90%.
