The Animal Assistance Foundation has awarded Look What The Cat Brought In shelter and Rescue $15,000. The Animal Assistance Foundation grant is given to those that increase the live release rate of animals throughout the state of Colorado, produce measurable impact on animal welfare in Colorado, yield sustainable long term results, and support collaboration between organizations, and support and practice responsible stewardship.
Look What the Cat Brought In was founded in 2008 as a limited admission, adoption guaranteed shelter and was the first in Colorado Springs serving cats exclusively. Although their primary focus is in El Paso County, they have taken into their care cats in need from all over the state, including severe hoarding situations.
The cats accepted into their care 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 and others.
Look What the Cat Brought In shelter and rescue also received $5,000 from the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plate program. The license plates are part of the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund and the money will be used for spay/neuter surgery, microchip implantation and registration, and medical care for the cats in the shelter’s care. The shelter has provided much needed veterinary treatment for the cats they accept, and such care is aided with the money granted via both the Animal Assistance Foundation and the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plate program
The director of Look What the Cat Brought In, Jennifer Nosler, is looking forward to sustaining an ongoing relationship with both the Animal Assistance Foundation and the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund to continue the vital work at the shelter. Particularly now that the shelter is moving from their current modest location into the former Hamlet Spay and Neuter two-story building at 2129 E. Boulder St. later this summer. With the move, Look What the Cat Brought In plans to expand the cats in their care and better service the community. The money from the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plate program helps make that mission a reality.
**Be looking for more information on our move that is anticipated at the end of August 2014. We will have a grand opening celebration shortly after we are all settled in.
Footloose found a new home as one of our volunteer’s mother’s Mother’s Day present to herself! Footloose is one of the sweetest and most beautiful young cats we ever have had at the shelter! When he lived on the eastern plains of Colorado, his family failed to notice that their kids had put a rubber band around one of his back feet, killing part of his foot. Remarkably the wound healed itself and we and our vet concluded that he didn’t need amputation or a prosthetic, but just a good home. Thank goodness a holiday occasion was around the corner to make all our dreams come true. Bon voyage kitten and have a great new life.
Here’s an interview I gave on March 22, about the abandoned cat situation.
I have removed and placed 25 of the indoor cats whose elderly owner left them behind when she moved into a nursing home. We will be trapping the ourdoor group to be spayed or neutered and released to the property as soon as this weekend. Financial assistance is greatly appreciated!
An elderly El Paso county resident didn’t intend to abandon her cats, but she has had to go into a nursing home just the same. She left behind 30 wonderful indoor cats at her home and a colony of up to 100 more cats outside.
We will be able to place most of the indoor cats with the Denver Dumb Friends League and Pueblo Animal Services. Hear the full report on Pets Matter on KRDO.
We will need funding for medical care for the outdoor cats. The shelters taking the indoor cats will be responsible for the medical costs for those cats.
We plan to start trapping the outdoor colony as early as Friday if we can make appointments.
