Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Hi, my name is Leo, and I am a 2-year-old DSH tabby with claws. Although my name makes you think of a lion, I am actually a gray tabby. But if you come see me, you will understand why I am called that. I am a regal looking fellow, especially when you see me in my lounging mode, and I strut around like I am king of the jungle. I’ve been an indoor/outdoor cat all my life, so I’ve had plenty of room to wander. I’m a real lover though. I like to cuddle and lie in your lap, and I love to sleep with my person. I am also curious and playful. I would like to play with a fishing pole lure, and I think it’s fun to chase fingers and hands underneath a blanket before going to sleep. And I am a chatterbox! I will talk to you, and I love it when you talk to me. I’ll talk right back! I’ll also greet you at the door, and when you say hello to me I’ll hold a paw up to say hi! Won’t you come by the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center at 1141 Manitou Avenue and meet me? The nice folks here would be happy to make an appointment to introduce us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

You'll find us out and about at adoption fairs and community events all over Colorado Springs! We have a physical building in Manitou Springs where we are able to bring pets for meetings, and some reside while awaiting their new families. We also create a monthly poster featuring our available pets which are displayed at locations throughout the community - please let us know if you can put our available pets flyer at your workplace. We update our community posters and pet listings monthly. For the most up-to-date info, please visit our website at www.safeplacepets.org

Our Adoption Process...

Please check out our available pets and contact us to let us know which one(s) interest you. We'll arrange a site visit to your home and a meet-and-greet with your prospective pet once we have had a phone chat to determine if our rescue pet is a good fit for you and you for him/her. If you and the pet decide it's true love, we'll have you fill out an adoption contract and ask for an adoption donation (rather than a fee). A certificate of adoption is mailed to you once the process is complete.
