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 75 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 the rescued kitties 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!

WILD BLUE’S MARCH KITTY OF THE MONTH
Please meet our kitty of the month for MARCH, Valette!
Meow, meow, my name is Valette. I’m a pretty little female panther (domestic) kitty, only 10 months old. I was born at Wild Blue after the Sanctuary took in my Mom (Venice) who came from a hoarding situation. My Mom and siblings have all been adopted into their furrever homes and now it’s my turn!
I’m spayed, microchipped and up to date with my shots. My adoption fee is only 75! If you would like to be pre-approved to adopt me, please submit an online adoption application. If you would like to meet me, please contact Wild Blue at (719) 900-CATS (2287) or (719) 213-1127 to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

THANK YOU TO OUR FEBRUARY VOLUNTEERS OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating foster team members – Kathy Kennington (left in the photo with the purple shirt) and Judy Hawley – as our February volunteers of the month!
Kathy retired from a local law office 3 years ago, and her friend Judy retired from nursing at a local assisted living facility a year ago, and both were looking for something to do with their free time. During a conversation at a veterinarian appointment it was suggested that they might consider volunteering for Wild Blue because of their love for cats. In April of 2016, they applied to Wild Blue to be foster Moms and have been fostering young kittens for them ever since. It gives them great joy to see the kittens go to their forever homes.
Thank you both very much for your dedication to the Wild Blue kitties!
***PLEASE NOTE*** Wild Blue is TEMPORARILY CLOSED for all new intakes/surrendered cats and kittens. Please see our list of alternate intake sources for placement opportunities at this time. If you are interested in fostering a cat or kitten until placement can be found, Wild Blue may be able to offer assistance with food, litter and basic vet care until the Sanctuary is open for intakes/surrenders.
