About Us

 Metro Denver CAT is a collaboration of animal welfare groups working together to make Denver a place where cats are valued and cared for by an engaged community.  We are working for cats and kittens that are pets, strays, or feral cats.  We provided free, lifesaving services to over 1,000 cats in 2020.

We provide help with:

  • Free spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccines package for pet and feral cats

  • Free comprehensive TNR (Trap-Neuter- Return). 

  • Resources and supplies for outdoor cat management 

  • Advice and resources for a variety of other cat related issues

  • Transporting cats to and from the spay and neuter clinic.

Metro Denver CAT also helps mentor rural communities to provide services for cats, in many cases for the very first time.
