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 30 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.
To make an appointment to come and visit the kitties — please call us at least a day in advance at either (719) 964-8905 or (719) 213-1127. Otherwise come and see us at our PetCo adoption fairs on Saturdays from 12noon-4p.m. Thank you for your understanding!
HELP SOFIA HEAL FROM A CAR ACCIDENT — ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT IN HER CAMPAIGN! $1,000 RAISED SO FAR!
This is sweet, little Sofia, she is 18 months old and was recently severely injured when she was hit by a car. She suffered a head injury, eye trauma, pulmonary (lung) bruising, numerous abrasions, a small laceration, a broken right hind leg (calf bone/ankle) and torn ligaments in her left ankle.
She has had her first surgery (for her left ankle) through Colorado Canine Orthopedics (CCO) and she is slowly improving. She is even up and amazingly walking around a bit. She will still need more surgery (on her right leg) and intensive veterinary care. Her surgeries, subsequent recovery, medications and follow up veterinary care will total a little over $1,500 in costs to Wild Blue.
Now you can join the team of professionals and concerned cat lovers who are helping Sofia on her road to recovery. Wild Blue needs YOUR help to raise the funds to help pay for Sofia’s medical bills. DONATE NOW through her Love Animals campaign. And stay tuned here for updates on her progress.

WILD BLUE’S MAY KITTY OF THE MONTH
Meow, meow, my name is Sophie. I’m a pretty female, long-haired tortie mix, around 5 ½ years old. My friend Ravena and I lived with a gentleman who needed to move into an apartment that didn’t allow pets. We were adopted together, but I have since lost my dear friend Ravena and am back at Wild Blue. I miss Ravena so much – so I’m a little sad and shy right now. I would probably do best in a quieter home. I’m good with other cats though and I long for some belly rubs. I’m spayed, microchipped and current on my vaccines. My adoption fee is $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) 964-8905 or (719) 213-1127 to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!
THANK YOU TO OUR MAY VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Kay Jennings as our May volunteer of the month!
Kay has been with Wild Blue for about 4 years and she has had cats since she was a young girl. She is part of our clean team and helps with transportation for adoption fairs and the occasional vet appointment. Kay and her husband (retired military) moved back to the Colorado Springs area in 2001 and plan to remain here. She spends her time going to the gym, volunteering and traveling.
Kay also helps out by keeping track of our Wild Blue kitty’s names – so we don’t have duplicates of the same name too often! She currently has 2 cats who own her house and allow Kay and her husband live there. Their names are Roger and Nic and they are both rescue kittens. Kay has a wonderful volunteer heart! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to Wild Blue and the kitties!
