The Importance of Spay/Neuter
Unfortunately, there are just too many cats. In the United States it is estimated that there are 60 million house cats and also a feral population of approximately 60 million. Research shows that any unsterilized house cat will contribute to the feral population within its first 2 years of life. The only real solution to overpopulation is spay/neuter, and every responsible cat owner should make sterilization a priority to ensure that their pet does not contribute to the tragedy and suffering of cats in feral colonies.
Adoption is the Best Option!
All CLAWS cats are spayed/neutered before adoption with no exceptions. In addition, they are tested for FIV/FELV, receive their vaccinations, are dewormed and microchipped. This ensures that CLAWS cats are preferable to kittens or cats offered for free in newspapers or online.
Are Free Cats Really Free?
NO! Responsible cat owners know that to spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinate, and get a health check by a vet will cost them far more than the adoption fee charged by CLAWS.
Where Do CLAWS Cats Come From?
CLAWS does its best to help all cats in need in the Grand Valley. Many cats are brought to us from agencies such as Mesa County Animal Services. Some cats are surrendered by people who may have to move or who have lost their homes. Litters of kittens are brought to us by owners who have not spayed/neutered their own cats. And some are simply found - frightened, hungry and in need. They are brought to us as their last chance at finding a loving home.
Cat's Lives Are Worth Saving!!
"Saving one animal won't change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal."
Our volunteers are in every morning for 5 to 6 hours to clean the shelter, and provide food, water, care and love for the kitties. If you are interested in meeting adoptable cats at the shelter, please call the shelter in advance to make an appointment. We also hold adoption events every Saturday at PetSmart in Grand Junction. Please note that CLAWS' kittens are housed in foster care, not the shelter.
