Hi, my name is Laila Bee!  I’m a gorgeous tortie looking for a home to call my own.  I used to live in a house filled with cats, and I mean filled.  I think there were at least 60 of us, maybe even more.  It was hard to keep track.  But one day a bunch of humans came in and took us all away.  It was scary and strange.  We went to a big rescue filled with other animals.  I was really worried at first, but then the humans got us all cleaned up, and treated our ear infections, and gave us vaccines.  I was there with some of the other cats I lived with for a while, then one day they loaded 4 of us up and we went for a long drive.  At the end we were here, at Cat Care Society.  They noticed my cough, and after taking some x-rays and listening to me, I was diagnosed with asthma.  I’m still getting used to the medication, but it is really nice being able to breath so well.  The people here are really nice.  And it’s nice to not have quite as many cats around.  I would really like to go to a home, where it’s just me, or just me and one or two other cats.  I never knew what I was missing, it’s nice to get attention just for me.  I am a little bit shy at first, but I warm up really quickly.  I don’t like to be picked up, because that’s kind of scary, but I love to cuddle!  Come in and meet me today, maybe I could be the perfect cat for you!

About Cat Care Society

About Our Shelter...

Cat Care Society, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 1981 to improve the quality of life for homeless, injured, and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area.

The Society's purposes are:

To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals, and to reduce pet overpopulation.

To shelter cats in a healthy, cage-free environment and to provide compatible and responsible adoptions.

To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people.

To be a friend to all cats.

The shelter provides a temporary refuge for up to 50 cats until an appropriate and permanent home can be found for each. Veterinary care, premium diet, and human interaction are lovingly provided.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Cat Care Society is located at 5787 W. 6th Avenue in Lakewood, Colorado. We are on the frontage road north of 6th Avenue, between Sheridan Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard. It is easiest to access the frontage road via Sheridan Avenue.

CCS is open Tuesday through Friday Noon - 5:30, Saturday 11 - 4:30 and Sunday Noon - 3:00. The shelter is closed on Monday.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are looking to adopt a cat, we encourage you to visit our shelter. There are no scheduled appointments at CCS – simply drop by during the shelter’s open hours.

When you visit the shelter seeking to adopt, a Shelter Assistant will greet you. They will ask you to fill out a “Cat Finder Assistance” form that gives an idea of the type of cat you are seeking. If you have children, we require they visit the shelter with you. Also, renters should come prepared with a copy of their lease indicating cats are allowed, or their landlord’s phone number so we can verify pet allowances.

Once you have found a cat that suits you – which may take more than one visit – a Shelter Assistant will have you fill out an adoption application. You will then go through the adoption process to learn more about the specific cat you have chosen and to review the adoption contract. Adoption paperwork usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and review.

Cats available for adoption at CCS have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS (FIV). They have undergone a physical examination upon entry into the shelter, and received distemper and upper respiratory vaccinations. All adoptable cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered. All cats and kittens leave the shelter with a 15-day health care assistance plan, a collar and ID tag, and an implanted microchip used to help return lost pets to their homes. We also provide a cardboard carrier to take the cat or kitten home.
