Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary
Since its launch in 2010, Wild Blue has saved the lives of more than 2400 animals with adoptions spreading to as far away as Nebraska and North Carolina. Wild Blue also has an active foster program with more than 40 animals currently being served.
Thanks to your caring and support during 2015, the Sanctuary was able to rescue more than 475 cats and kittens in need. That number included 387 kittens 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 kitten is spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We were able to find loving homes for a total of 415 of the 475 rescued kitties during the past year and the others have either been adopted so far this month, 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 2015! We would not be able to exist without the dollars given and partnerships formed with these organizations. Thank you to the ASPCA (Lil BUB’s Big Fund for the ASPCA), Best Friends Animal Society – Save them All, Colorado Gives Day, Colorado Pet Overpopulation License Plate Fund Grant, Love Animals, Saving Pets Challenge, Petco Foundation and the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund.
With your help in the form of time, donations, and dedication we can help match rescued animals to loving owners, one at a time, and change both lives forever! Bringing hearts together, how exciting!
For security purposes access to the Sanctuary is by appointment only.

WILD BLUE’S JUNE KITTY OF THE MONTH
Meow, meow, my name is Oreo. I’m a 14-year-old, male, declawed cat. My brother Chip and I were surrendered together, due to family allergies. I’m healthy and lively, despite being a senior kitty. I enjoy being brushed and receiving good cat scratches. If you will let me, I will cuddle up and sleep next to you and keep you cozy all night. I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date with my shots and vet care. During the month of June my adoption fee is ONLY $10!
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) 964-8905 or (719) 213-1127 to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

THANK YOU TO OUR JUNE VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Christine as our June volunteer of the month! Christine says — “Three years ago I had two fourteen-year-old cats. Unfortunately, Mitzy the blue eyed, white female polydactyl rescue cat became ill and passed over the Rainbow Bridge. The other fourteen-year-old rescue male cat, Mozart, was heartbroken by this loss and decided to stop eating. The veterinarian ran all the tests and everything came back that he was in great shape!
In desperation, but still grieving the loss of Mitzy, I looked online and found Wild Blue. One of their foster mom had 8 kittens from one litter and two kittens from another litter. I made an appointment to visit! I chose a little girl from the litter of 8. Her coat reminded me of a pinto bean, so her name became Cuddle Bean (Bean for short). I brought her home and introduced her to Mozart. Within a day, she was loving on him and right before my eyes he became a young kitten!
The foster mom happened to ask if I had ever thought about “fostering kittens”? I said that I might in the future but that I was still recovering from my loss! I got a call a few days later from the foster mom and she asked if it would be okay if she and lady named, Shirley David, could come and see the area I might want to have for the foster kittens in the future. I was anxious to let them see how well Mo and Bean were doing (still not sure I wanted to foster) but we set up an appointment for them to come and view the room I might use as a foster room .
A few days later, I got another call from Shirley saying Wild Blue had a slight emergency and needed to have seven kittens fostered! So about 90 , yes, ninety kittens later , I am still fostering and loving it!
I owned and operated my own Christian Montessori School (ages 2 1/2 to 5 1/2) for 36 years so upon retiring, it was an easy transition from young children to loving baby kittens ! I love working with all the people at Wild Blue and have enjoyed watching the organization grow over the last three years!
I feel so honored to be recognized as Volunteer of the Month because it’s such a special organization with so many special people and I get to love and mentor kittens!!”
