Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary
Since its launch in 2010, Wild Blue has saved the lives of close to 2500 animals with adoptions spreading to as far away as Nebraska and North Carolina. Wild Blue also has an active foster program with more than 75 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 OCTOBER KITTY OF THE MONTH
Please meet our next kitty of the month for October, Venice!
Meow, meow, my name is Venice. I’m a female, adult cat around 1 1/2 years old. I was rescued from a hoarding situation. I have been getting love and support in a foster home with my 6 six babies, but now I’m ready for my forever home of my own. I’m a sweet girl and would love to meet you!
I’m spayed, microchipped and up to date with my shots. My special adoption fee for the month of October is only $50! 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 OCTOBER VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Shirley David as our October volunteer of the month!
Shirley has been retired since 2006. She spends the Winter (December through March) in Tucson, AZ in her motor home with her husband and four rescue cats — Buzz, Jessie, Theodore, and Cassiopeia.
Shirley has two sons and five grandchildren. Shown here (right photo) is Mike and Gina and their 3 children Jason, Tatum, Jonah. Shown below is Shirley and her husband, Steve, with son John and his family, Gabrielle and Domenic & Ethan (twin grandsons).
Buzz is 15 years old and was adopted when he was only 6 weeks old. Jessie is 14 years old and was adopted when she was 8 weeks old. Theodore is 6 years old he was one of Shirley’s bottle babies along with his 3 brothers (Alvin, Simon & Dave). Cassiopeia, the baby, is about 2 years old. She came to Wild Blue a baby herself (around 8 or 9 months old) with 4 babies.
Shirley started volunteering for Wild Blue Animal Rescue in Spring, 2012. Originally, she only wanted to foster kittens, but that changed pretty quickly. There are never enough volunteers for the things that need to be done.
Before Wild Blue, Shirley volunteered and fostered for another animal rescue for about 5 years. That rescue kept all of their cats/kittens in cages and never seemed to have enough money to get medical care for their animals. So, she decided to look for another place to volunteer.
The two things Shirley loves most about Wild Blue are the fact that the cats/kittens aren’t put in cages and that they always get the medical care that they need. Shirley’s specialty is fostering bottle babies. Thank you Shirley for all of your support!
***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. Please call (719) 213-1127 for more details. Thank You!
