Almost Home Adoptions for rescued cats
Almost Home Adoptions is dedicated to finding loving and responsible homes for rescued, homeless, and abused animals. Excellent care and shelter is provided for all animals received. Almost Home Adoptions promotes spaying and neutering, vaccinations, counseling and education throughout the community and nationwide. Almost Home is a no-kill, private 501c3 non-profit, cage-free rescue and adoption center. Most cats are strays that find their way to Almost Home. We also offer a sanctuary that provides refuge to cats in hopeless situations. Our residents come primarily from the streets of Colorado and public shelters where they had once been scheduled to be killed. Almost Home is proud to have been a no-kill shelter and rescue since inception (and before). We embody and support no-kill through our philosophies, actions, policies and programs. In addition, we are one of only several area rescues who will accept and subsequently nurture "bottle babies" (unweaned kittens). Almost Home is unique, as illustrated by the following features: • Cage-Free Adoption Center: A cage-free environment helps in the overall physical and mental health of the cat. Our adoption center has plenty of horizontal, vertical and cubical space for exercise and play. A clean, cheerful, colorful home-like environment is provided in a no-cost/low-cost manner through our dedicated and hardworking volunteer team. In addition, our fully enclosed outdoor enclosure (the "Catio") provides a safe environment in which our residents can enjoy fresh air and sunlight. • Sanctuary, where cats are able to live full and happy lives with the care and love they deserve. • Hospital, providing medical treatment for sick or injured residents. • Hospice, providing consoling care and a warm, loving environment for chronically or terminally ill cats to live out their lives in comfort. • Special Needs Cats: Almost Home does not turn away cats due to age, medical need, or "lack of adoptability." Therefore, it is safe haven for several older, chronically ill, or handicapped cats. At Almost Home Adoptions, these cats are able to live full and happy lives with medical care, adoration, and the connection to life of which they are all worthy. • Cat and Kitten Cam: Our 24/7 Cat and Kitten Cam engages our supporters and can be used as both an educational and a fundraising tool.

Spelling to Make a Differenceby Andrew Romanoff
I have long been a fan of Summer Scholars. So I was pleased to participate in the inaugural Stars on Stage Spelling Bee, and I'm looking forward to lasting more rounds in this year's event.
I am committed to raising at least $5,000 for Summer Scholars ... and the funds I raise will serve as my "bank" in case I need to "buy" a chance to cheat when I compete in the Spelling Bee on Feb. 26th.
Your contributions will help me be more competitive at the event. The the long-term benefits of your gifts are even greater, because Summer Scholars will use donations to provide high-quality after-school and summer learning programs to at-risk elementary students in our community. Summer Scholars helps young learners build their literacy skills and positive behaviors, giving kids a solid foundation for ongoing success in school and in life.
So please, give as generously as you can.
We're going to "bee" the winners!by Alan Epstein
The Killer Bees are ready to sting the competition at the Stars on Stage Spelling Bee! But we need a swarm of support so we can buy lots of cheats -- so be a honey and support our team from Hall & Evans!
Remember, the real beneficiaries of your support will be the at-risk students served by Summer Scholars. Nine out of ten lives in poverty, and most are struggling in school. Summer Scholars' after-school and summer learning programs are a hive of activity, from literacy tutoring to hands-on enrichment activities, that help young learners build a solid foundation for ongoing academic success.
Summer Scholars' good work is only possible with philanthropic support. So please give generously to help the students they serve, and to help our team to victory!
