Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We exist 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.
Our hard-to-place cats arrive at Feline Rescue Network (Look What the Cat Brought In) from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Fort Carson Animal Rescue, the Humane Society of Fremont County, and Lamar Second Chance Animal Rescue Foundation. We offer them for adoption when they are healthy and well socialized.
As a limited-admission shelter for special-needs cats with limitations due to amputations, FIV-positive status, age, or pasts in hoarding homes, we address unique challenges. A recent dental procedure cost $1,700, and total medical expenses run about $45,000 per year. About 300 cats per year move to forever homes when they are well-adjusted, adoptable companions. The shelter can house up to 100 cats at a time.
We were the first shelter in Colorado Springs exclusively for cats. In 2013, we rescued one-third of our hard-to-place, special-needs cats from hoarders.
