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 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 Coufal. I’m a super friendly, male, long-haired black kitty about 1.5 years old. I was an injured stray with multiple puncture wounds and abscesses on my back from cat fights. My wounds are healed and my fur is growing back. I am a talker and a lover! I love your company and your petting, and want to be with you always!
I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date with my shots. My *special adoption fee* for the month of JUNE during the Best Friends ‘Soak Up Summer’ adoption campaign 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, contact Wild Blue at (719) 900-CATS (2287) to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

Judy writes — I have been a volunteer at Wild Blue since April 2016. I had retired the year before and was thinking of volunteering somewhere but didn’t exactly know where to begin.
I adopted my big male cat (Barnee) from Wild Blue at a Petco adoption fair as a kitten in 2013. In 2015 I thought he needed a buddy so I came to the shelter and found my little calico (Maddie). They keep each other entertained and are my best buddies.
I knew Wild Blue was a great organization, so I thought why not join them. I have been on the Thursday morning team and love working with them! Everyone is so dedicated and hardworking and love what they are doing. The rest of the time I keep myself busy with my wonderful grandchildren and also hope to be doing some traveling soon. I am truly honored to be selected as volunteer of the month.
Thank you very much Judy for your dedication to the Wild Blue kitties!
