Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Siamese||Color:||Brown Or Chocolate||Age:||Senior|
Hello there, my name is Hephzibah. Isn't that a cool name? It's an old, old name from ancient times. I think it suits my Siamese elegance. I used to live in a wonderful home with my 4 kitty roommates and a wonderful person. We lived with our person since we were just little kitties. Mostly we shared our lives with her and each other but we saw visitors too. I'm a little nervous around new people but once I get to know them, I do like meeting them. But our person passed away. We miss her so much. We were lucky to find this place called Cat Care Society. They are taking very good care of us now, but as nice as the shelter is, it's not as nice as having a home of our own. Now we are all looking to meet some new wonderful people who might take each of us (or even more than one of us) to another great home. All of us are great cats. I myself am very talkative and friendly. I even like to play when the mood is right. I love "da bird" and like to hang out in kitty tunnels (don't let me scare you when I leap out)! I'm considered a senior but just barely! Because of my age I'm covered by the Perpet-U-Care Program which will pay for a portion of my health care for the rest of my life. That's a pretty great program and I'm definitely worth it. Come on by the shelter soon and get to know me. I know we can be good friends.
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.
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.
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 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.
Our adoption fees are:
$90 Adoption fee for one cat or kitten
$150* Discounted adoption fee for adopting a pair of cats (both cats must be one year or older)
$65 Discounted adoption fee for people 55 years or older who adopt a cat 5 years or older
* (There is no discount on adoptions where one or both cats are under one year of age.)
