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 kitties rescued 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!
During the entire month of August, Wild Blue will be participating in a the Best Friends ‘Summer to Save Them All’ adoption campaign featuring our 1 year and older kitties for a special adoption fee of only $20. Wrap up your Summer by adopting an adorable cat from Wild Blue. Just imagine how great your weekend of camping or lounging around at home will be when you have a new furry friend at your side.
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 (719) 213-1127. Other come and see us at our PetCo adoption fairs on Saturdays from 12noon-4p.m. Thank you for your understanding!
Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen- including the wonderful volunteers at Colorado Springs Utilities and the staff at The Pinery on the Hill, we have an absolutely wonderful Fancy Feast! We raised over $20,000 from the various auction events and entrance tickets. It was our best year yet! Thank you so, so much for your contribution! See you next year!
Meow! Meow! My name Deming. I’m a very loving, short-haired, 1-year-old male kitty with dense, plush fur that everyone enjoys snuggling into and really cute markings on my head and tail. I’m eager to be around people and I also enjoy the company of the other cats at my foster home.
I came to Wild Blue when I was just a few days old and have had a bit of a rough start. Complications from early exposure to feline herpes resulted in my left eye becoming fused and to atrophy. A wonderful partner vet did an eyelid release to reveal my beautiful left eye…I do have some vision in it and enjoy playing with a laser light. I have lingering issues with runny eyes and nose — but my foster Mama takes really good care of me and cleans me up each morning so I’m good to go for the day.
I’m neutered, microchipped, fully-vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. My adoption fee is $75. My foster Mama will miss me crawling up in her lap, but knows that my forever person is out there just waiting to find me. Are you my person? 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!

She says “I relocated from Thailand about 8 years ago and the first couple years trying to adjust to life in the U.S. was very hard. I became very homesick and missed my cats in Thailand very much. I decided to look for something to put my mind at ease so I started to volunteer at Homeward Pet Adoption Center in Woodinville, WA, where I helped with cat care for two years.
Over the years I found great joy in caring for rescue cats and developed a passion for helping them. I then moved to Colorado Springs and continued my volunteer work at a cat rescue named Look What The Cat Brought In, where I spent four years helping cats. Finally, I began with Wild Blue a little over a year ago and am now taking care of the feral enclosure (Maya’s Wildheart Village) every Sunday morning, and also at the sanctuary when needed. It has been a delight to get to know the cats at Wild Blue, especially at the feral enclosure. It took a few months for the feral cats to get used to me, but now I can pet some of them and they wait for me at the gate for the food, of course.
Volunteering to help animals has really become part of my life and I will continue doing this as long as I can. I am so glad to be part of the Wild Blue Animal Sanctuary which does such an excellent job taking care of the cats. Wild Blue has outstanding facilities, a dedicated staff, and cat lover volunteers who will go above and beyond to make our cats happy.
Cats are my furry friends, best companions, family, and my therapy when my life is down. Life without cats is a dull life, indeed.” Thank you very much Namtip for your dedication to the Wild Blue kitties!
