Shekina

Our beautiful girl lost her battle with mammary cancer on February 4, 2014.  We thank her foster parent Lynette and her veterinarians, Dr. Chris McReynolds at SCIVM and Dr. Cynthia Reed at Aspenwood for their loving kindness and expert medical care. Shekina will live in our hearts forever.
Beautiful Shekina

Nexis moves to Flagstaff!

Nexis runs the wheel

Nexis has found his forever home in Arizona with family of friends. Nexis gave us much entertainment at the shelter as well as some anxiety as he used up a life or two as a baby.

Nexis started his autobiography with:

At the shelter, we kittens get bored late at night and sometimes read the paperbacks that staff leave for our entertainment. My favorite is, “Trouble is my Business”, by Raymond Chandler. Although I am a little small to fill Phillip Marlow’s shoes, I am a worthy student!

If your home is dull and in need of livening up, I am the one for you! I can make mischief in the twinkling of an eye.

We are expecting reports of great achievements as he pursues the next stage of his career of mischief!

Anderson Cooper joins the shelter! Neuter scheduled for Tuesday!

anderson cooper_9893The famous journalist announced that he would go on location at a cat shelter to interview cats and find out what shelter life is really like. In order to complete the experience he had to temporarily abandon human speech and pretend to only be able to meow. Then he disguised himself as a Siamese Flame Point with white hair and blue eyes and allowed himself to be "captured" at Ft. Carson. After five days in the Ft. Carson Animal Rescue, he was transferred to lookwhatthecatbroughtin. His second day at the shelter,  he interviewed our vet and allowed her to examine him. He was found to be in perfect health after a snap test, exam and rabies vaccination. He will go back to the clinic on Tuesday for his neuter so that he will have a complete shelter cat experience.

Although we will not post video of the actual operation, we will keep the public informed of his progress.

Adoption update

Since January 1, 2012, 278 cats have found loving homes. Thank you to everyone who collaborated with us to make this number a reality – the best volunteers in the world, the kind and generous donors who support us, the caring fosters who give our kitties a chance to grow up in good health, the owners who make the responsible choice to surrender rather than abandon, the veterinary medical professionals who provide the excellent medical care for our wards, staff at Petco and PetSmart who work to provide caring adoption venues, and our neighbors who watch with bemused tolerance the never-ending parade of carriers come in and out every day. Bless you all and have a wonderful new year.
