IMPACT FOR CATS
Since 2016, our free programs have focused on connecting cats who need the most help directly with life-saving services:
1,500 Pet cats spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
3,000 Feral cats trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and returned to their territories.
1,400 Homeless kittens rescued off Denver streets.
560 Homeless adoptable cats rescued from Denver streets.
IMPACT FOR PEOPLE
The cats we serve are a part of a larger community, and our work helps the people who care for them too.
Free, comprehensive programs provided to residents of 5 Denver neighborhoods:
the 80219, 80204, 80223, 80216 and 80239 zip codes.
50,000 families have been visited through our door-to-door outreach program and were connected with resources.
330 volunteers have utilized our free trap bank to trap, neuter and return cats outside of our focused program areas.
IMPACT FOR ANIMAL WELFARE
We're committed to finding new, practical solutions that enable the animal welfare field to keep making progress in Colorado.
Our programs have a proven record of decreasing the number of homeless cats entering Denver shelters. From 2015- 2018, Denver Animal Shelter's cat intake from neighborhoods served through Metro Denver CAT programs
decreased 15% more than other neighborhoods.
We're launching Rural Mentorship Programs in communities across Colorado. In 2020 we helped Yuma, CO start offering high-volume, low cost TNR in their community for the very first time. We'll expand these programs into 4 additional rural areas by 2025.
