My story

Very shy 1 yr calico SF

I'm Ruthie and I'm a little bit of a scaredy kitty. I need someone who is willing to work with me for what might be quite a while. I was living outside for the first year of my life and need to learn that people are ok. I would do best with no children, no dogs, and maybe a friendly cat to help me adjust.

 Please note: we do not allow out of state adoptions. All adopters must be residents of Colorado and have verifiable, physical Colorado address.

More about this rescue

We believe ALL animals have the right to life.
Angels with Paws 501c3 charity runs a mostly cage-free, Limited Intake Rescue Shelter that since opening in 2004 has provided over 11,000 homeless, unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned cats, kittens (and some dogs through foster care) with rescue, Veterinary and other care, rehab and a place to live until we can adopt them into safe and lasting homes. Many of them are injured, ill, disabled, and older and would be turned away or put down by other shelters. For these animals Angels with Paws is their last hope. This is amazing work considering we operate out of a converted Fast Food building, have very limited resources, few volunteers, no promotion, and no on-site Veterinarian. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and offer advice in caring for pets with the hope that they can be kept in their own homes instead of being relinquished to a shelter, the need to Spay/Neuter and the cruelty of declawing.

Angels with Paws does not receive any Government, Corporate or any regular funding. We do not have an on-site Veterinarian, and have to pay for our Veterinary Care and Supplies. Nearly all of our funding comes from private donations.

Our dream is to see the day when no adoptable animal will be euthanized.
