Mission Statement

To provide comprehensive companion animal resources, services, and education to the community to prevent homelessness and promote the human-animal bond.

Organization History

It all started with 17 cats, two veterinary technicians, and 450 square ft. of room. From these ingredients, the Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay-Neuter Clinic was born on June 1, 2006.

The original 17 cats came from another animal rescue group that didn't have the means to care for them. This inspired co-founders Sarah Swanty & Anna Neubauer to finally act on their dream of opening an adoption-guarantee cat rescue. With a background in the veterinary field, and the support of South Mesa Veterinary Hospital, the two women were able to provide the necessary care for the kitties while they waited for adopters.

In no time at all, the word about the cat rescue spread, and calls started pouring in for cats that needed help. When one cat would get adopted, another would be moved into the shelter immediately. Kittens started arriving in bundles, and a foster program was immediately started.

In March of 2007 they opened a low-cost spay-neuter clinic - the first and only truly low-cost clinic in Larimer County. Over the years more programs have been added to save as many animals as possible from euthanasia due to homelessness.


From an Adopter: "I adopted Angel after Christmas 2010. The moment I saw her I knew she was the right one for me, my roommate Jessica, and Taz.
Angel has been a wonderful addition to our home. She is very happy, healthy and playful and she loves her Uncle Taz. I have enclosed a picture of her and Taz. They are the best of friends and I look forward to sending you more pictures soon.
Many blessings and thank you all for what you do. In my eyes you are all truly angels."

From a Supporter: "As a veterinarian for over thirty years and having resided and practiced veterinary medicine in Fort Collins for twenty of those years, I have seen the tremendous work this organization has done for our community. Finding, fostering, caring for and adopting needy cats and kittens is a tremendous undertaking in staff and supply resources and the difference this organization has made for all walks of life in our community is truly remarkable."
