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.

    Franklin Fundraiser

    Please donate!

    In early August, little Franklin of Lamar was attacked by a dog and thrown against a wall resulting in bilateral femur fractures and other injuries. Fortunately, he was rescued by a good samaritan and taken to a veterinarian who splinted his hind legs to stabilize the fractures . Unfortunately, surgery was delayed due to the surgeon’s illness. On August 8th, Franklin was transferred to our shelter from the Second Chance Animal Rescue in Lamar. We are grateful to both the Lamar Animal Medical Center for their initial treatment of Franklin and to the Second Chance Animal Rescue Colorado for entrusting us with his care and generously contributing to his continuing medical treatment. And now we are asking our kind supporters to help offset the cost of Franklin’s medical care, approximately $3000, to include hernia surgery at Aspenwood Veterinary Hospital and pinning of his femur fractures by Colorado Canine Orthopedics . Your generous support will help give Franklin, this beautiful 9 week old kitten, a well-earned opportunity to live a long and healthy life in a loving permanent home.
