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!
WILD BLUE’S APRIL KITTIES OF THE MONTH
**Rochelle was adopted!! Her she is with her new Mom, Noelle. WOOHOO for both of you!**
Please meet Spike and Checkers – our newest Wild Blue Kitties of the Month for April.
Meow, meow, my name is Spike and this is my cute sister Checkers. We are both around 5 years old. I’m a male, longhaired, Snowshoe mix.
I’m friendly, curious and love my belly rubbed. Checkers is a bit shyer (as you can see in the picture), but I am helping her to adjust to our new environment here at the Sanctuary. We do need to go home together so I can help her there as well.
We are both front declawed and are fixed, current on our vaccinations and microchipped. Our special adoption fee is only $125 for both of us.
If you would like to be pre-approved to adopt us, please submit an online adoption application. If you would like to meet us, 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 APRIL VOLUNTEERS OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Morgann and Madysen Cordova as our April volunteers of the month! They have volunteered in both the Sanctuary, as well as at the adoption fairs with their Mom, Amy, for the last 3 years. Amy should be volunteer of the month as well if truth be told. This entire family has been long time supporters of Wild Blue. They have a great volunteer heart and LOVE all the kitties.
The teens began volunteering as a way to gain volunteer hours for Jr. National Honor Society, but it grew into much more. Their first duties were cleaning the Sanctuary and feeding kitties. However, their true passion was to help the kitties find their new “fur-ever” homes so they began helping out at the Petco adoption events. After a few months of volunteering at Petco, their mom Amy was asked to take over the responsibilities of managing the adoption events. So with that, the girls committed their Saturdays to helping out at Petco!
The fraternal twins are freshmen at Falcon High School. Mady is active in cheerleading and track; Morgann participates in the school’s theater productions and Anime club. Both girls are honor-roll students as well.
While they have fallen in love with all of the kitties that have come through the Sanctuary, Mady had a special bond with both Ingram and Fairfax. Morgann’s special kitty is Sasha. The girls feel they have received as much love, if not more, from the kitties than what they give. They can often be found in the Sanctuary laying with the kitties and studying for tests. The calmness and unconditional love eases the stress of studying! Thank you ladies for your hard work and dedication to Wild Blue and the kitties!
