Thousands of cats and their owners have been served through Cat Care Society since 1981. Established by Linda East, DVM, and Lynn Rowe, the Society's purposes are to:
- Shelter cats in a healthy cage-free environment and provide compatible and responsible adoptions.
- Sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals and reduce pet overpopulation.
- Provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people.
The shelter provides a temporary refuge for over 85 cats until an appropriate and permanent home can be found for each. Veterinary care, premium diet and human interaction are lovingly provided.
CCS has more than 120 active volunteers who donate about 14,000 hours each year in the following categories: shelter, fundraising, Nibbles & Kibbles food bank, nursing home visitations, in home foster care, and administrative assistance.
CCS is licensed as a shelter with the State of Colorado. We are members of the Colorado Federation of Animal Welfare Agencies (CFAWA) and Metro Denver Animal Welfare Alliance (MDAWA). In addition to donations from the community, the clinic and adoption fees, on-going support is received through the following workplace giving programs: Community Shares of Colorado, Combined Federal Campaign, Denver Employees Combined Campaign and the Colorado Combined Campaign.
