What We Do

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. We were founded in 2008 as the first shelter in Colorado Springs serving cats exclusively. We are proud to be a limited admission, adoption guaranteed shelter.

Our Cats

We accept cats from hoarding situations, Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region, Fort Carson Animal Rescue, Second Chance Animal Rescue Foundation, and other Colorado and Midwestern rescues. All our cats are tested for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and spayed or neutered.

Our Success Stories

We adopt hundreds of cats annually, both from our shelter and through two local pet store venues. Our alumni have gone to homes as far away as China and South America.

Our Cat Quarters

We have a mix of colony housing and kenneled areas. In our colony rooms we have Bengel wheels for the cats to run on, as well as plenty of lounging and climbing spots. We also have a catio connected to one of our colney rooms that lets the cats experience the great outdoors safely.

    Indy Give! is a community-wide giving campaign connecting people with causes – and we are in again this year. Our commitment to alleviate suffering in cats with medical needs results in medical expenses generally exceeding $40,000/year. Our goals this year include providing increased assistance through transfers from rescues with fewer resources who were harder hit by COVID and continued preparation of our own spay/neuter van to help decrease the time from a cat’s intake to adoption. Please spread the word and give generously to help us meet our goal of $18,000 by December 31st. Follow the link to our IndyGive donations page and make your donation today!

    Fox21 News - Give! 2020: Look What The Cat Brought In

    We’ve recently had the pleasure of having an interview with Fox21 News. After generous donations of up to 50% vet costs, we typically spend over $40,000 on veterinary care every year. The Give! campaign covers a large part of these costs for the year and helps give our cats the medical attention they need. We also are continuously working on rehabilitating cats through patience and socialization. Your donations through the Indy Give campaign play a big role in keeping our shelter running and every bit is appreciated!
