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!

Meow, meow, my name is Oracle. I’m a very friendly, female, Grey Tabby kitty. I’ll be 6 years young at the end of this year. I love the attention of my humans! I love talking them into rubbing my belly and petting me endlessly. I was previously adopted, but my owners had to move away. So I recently returned to Wild Blue and I may take a bit of time to re-adjust, but I still dream of a forever home where I can truly stay forever.
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, contact Wild Blue at (719) 900-CATS (2287) to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

Mimi writes — In the Spring of 2016, I didn’t even know about Wild Blue and was thinking of volunteering with the Humane Society (with the cats of course =^..^=). That didn’t work out. Fortuitous. Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I was in PetCo buying cat food for my four babies (Ash, Dexie, Jack and Jules), and saw Wild Blue and Melinda at the adoption fair. I briefly told Melinda my story and she gave me a pamphlet and directed me to the on-line volunteer application. The rest is history….
I started out in June volunteering on Monday mornings at the Sanctuary, this quickly lead to fostering, because they had all those Missouri kitties come in, so…why not? I have a mostly unused guest room. Then I hung out one Saturday to help at the adoption fair…and you can guess what happened from there.
I do have to say that I have successfully fostered 25 kittens and cats, 22 of which have been adopted out. (Shout out to Ash, my foster ambassador, he’s so amazing). I’m a loud and proud and bonafide Crazy Cat Lady – I own it, I love it. (And for those who don’t know, I’m Canadian). Since I’ve been working with Wild Blue, people in my life think it’s an awesome place. Volunteering with Wild Blue makes my crazy cat lady thing legitimate! So, I work full time, plus some, and give what spare time I have to Wild Blue, and won’t be stopping anytime soon. Thank you very much for your dedication to the Wild Blue kitties!
