Cat Care Society is looking for Volunteers for Kitten Fostering

Friday, July 17, 2015
Kitten season is in full swing and Cat Care Society is in need of foster families who can foster orphaned kittens, nursing moms with kittens, and pregnant mom cats. The time commitment for fostering kittens is anywhere from two months to two weeks depending on their age, health and temperament. CCS will provide all medical care for your fosters. We do require all foster kittens get a medical checkup at the shelter at 3 weeks, 6 weeks, and 9 weeks. This is to ensure their overall health and also to administer important vaccines required of young kittens. Once they are old enough to be spayed and neutered they can come to the shelter to find their furrever homes!

Required: 

Spare room away from household pets

Driver’s license/insured auto for transport

Please contact CCS Shelter Manager Heather Allen for more information and foster program orientation details. Phone: 303-239-9680 x 14, email:hallen@catcaresociety.org

Note: If you're not already a Cat Care Society volunteer, we will request you also attend an upcoming CCS Volunteer Orientation. The next session is Saturday, August 8th, 12:30 p.m. Link for more information.

Opt to Adopt Sammy and July 4th Adoption Special

Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Sammy


Sammy is an awesome lynx-point Siamese seeking his forever home.  Sammy is a sweet and affectionate boy and likes being pet.  He is a little shy around new people, but if you sit in his room with him for a while, he will come out and say, "Hello," to you.  

Sammy came to the shelter with his friend, Pumpkin, after their human passed away.  Sammy would really like to find a new human to love.  Sammy is approximately 10 years old and is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of his medical expenses for the rest of his life.  

You can find this handsome cat in the Purple Room at our shelter.  Please visit with Sammy so you can see for yourself what a sweet and amazing cat he is.  

ADOPTION SPECIAL

Come celebrate Independence Day with us at Cat Care Society.  Adopt any adult cat one year of age or older on July 3rd or July 5th, 2015 for $17.76!

Opt to Adopt Gomez

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Gomez


Gomez is a handsome orange and white tabby currently waiting for his forever home at our shelter.  He is affectionate and likes to be pet.  He's the kind of guy who will sit near you while you watch TV, read a book, or pay your bills.  

Gomez is a quiet cat and a little shy.  He likes to be up high, and I often find him hanging out on one of the shelves in his room.  

He came to the shelter when his owner was no longer able to care for him.  At approximately 11 years old, Gomez is a "senior" cat with a lot of love to give to his new human companion.  As a "senior" cat, Gomez is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of his medical care for the rest of his life.  

You can find Gomez in the Purple Room at our shelter.  Please come by and visit with him.  He is a wonderful and loving kitty who will make a great companion.  

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month.  Throughout the month of June, you can name your price on any cat at our shelter one year of age or older.  Please note that the standard adoption process still applies.

Opt to Adopt Pumpkin

Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Pumpkin


If you're looking for an adorable chatty companion, Pumpkin is the mancat for you!  Pumpkin is a very affectionate orange tabby with short hair.  He's quite friendly and enjoys being pet.  He's the kind of kitty who would love sitting by you while you watch TV or play on the computer.  And he always has something interesting to say!  You'll never get bored with this little chatterbox around. 

Pumpkin is approximately 10 years old.  Though he is technically a "senior" cat, you'd never know it.  He has plenty of energy and love to share.  Because of his status as a "senior" cat, Pumpkin is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of his medical care for the rest of his life.

Doesn't Pumpkin sound like the perfect kitty companion?  You can find him in the upstairs hallway of our shelter.  He'll be happy to tell you all about himself when you visit.  

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month.  You can name your price on any cat at Cat Care Society one year old or older all this month.  Please note that the standard adoption process still applies.  We hope you'll take advantage of this awesome adoption special!
