Since its launch in 2010, Wild Blue has saved the lives of over 2500 animals, with rescue efforts and adoptions spreading to as far away as Nebraska and North Carolina. With our focus on the feline population of the Colorado Springs area, thanks to your caring support, the Sanctuary rescued more than 580 cats and kittens in need during 2016! Wild Blue also has an active foster program with more than 50 animals currently being served.
That rescued number included outdoor kittens and pregnant feral mothers brought into the Wild Blue program from trap-neuter-return (TNR), transfers from other rescues and the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, strays & relinquishments. Each cat or kitten is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption, to ensure we do our part to cut down on Colorado’s feline overpopulation problem.
We found loving homes for a total of nearly 500 of kitties rescued during the past year. Though we lost a few precious lives to untreatable health issues, the others were placed into foster care or are living happily at the Sanctuary. None of this live saving work would be possible without YOU!
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our individual donors, grantors and fundraising partners who supported us in 2016! We would not be able to exist without the dollars given and partnerships formed with these organizations. Thank you to the ASPCA Adoption Ambassador Program Grant and the Subaru “Share the Love” Event Grant; Best Friends Animal Society – Save them All and Zappos.com free adoption promotion; Colorado Gives Day; Colorado Pet Overpopulation License Plate Fund Grant & Tax Check Off Fund; GreaterGood.Org; Love Animals and the Saving Pets Challenge. Also, the Petco Foundation and the Hambrick Fund have given Wild Blue grants for 2017. Thank you!
Any Wild Blue rescued animal not adopted, living in our feral enclosure, or placed into foster care is living happily at the Sanctuary, and will do so for the duration of its natural, healthy life. None of this live saving work would be possible without YOU!

Meow! Meow! My name Deming. I’m a very loving, short-haired, 1-year-old male kitty with dense, plush fur that everyone enjoys snuggling into and really cute markings on my head and tail. I’m eager to be around people and I also enjoy the company of the other cats at my foster home.
I came to Wild Blue when I was just a few days old and have had a bit of a rough start. Complications from early exposure to feline herpes resulted in my left eye becoming fused and to atrophy. A wonderful partner vet did an eyelid release to reveal my beautiful left eye…I do have some vision in it and enjoy playing with a laser light. I have lingering issues with runny eyes and nose — but my foster Mama takes really good care of me and cleans me up each morning so I’m good to go for the day.
I’m neutered, microchipped, fully-vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. My adoption fee is $75. My foster Mama will miss me crawling up in her lap, but knows that my forever person is out there just waiting to find me. Are you my person? If you would like to be pre-approved to adopt me, please submit an online adoption application. If you would like to meet me, contact Wild Blue at (719) 900-CATS (2287) to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

Donna says “I moved to Colorado Springs from Chicago in 2014 and I have completely fallen in love with this city, the weather, and the wonderful people that I have met, ESPECIALLY the kind, generous souls at Wild Blue!”
“I started out wanting to spend time with the kitties by feeding them and cleaning up after them. I soon realized that my allergies to them prevented me from being able to spend more than 20 minutes inside the Sanctuary with a large number of cats. I was heartbroken! But since my allergies were not affected by having just two kitties at home, I thought maybe I could take in one more and still feel OK. Lo and behold, it worked! And so began my desire to foster and make a difference in the life of an aging, needy kitty. I also found that I am able to help care for the feral kitties in the outdoor enclosure. I am SO blessed to be involved with Wild Blue and the incredible people that make this organization such a success.”
Thank you very much Donna for your dedication to the Wild Blue kitties!
