In 2019, more than 3,100 homeless and abandoned cats found new homes through the dedicated work of Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue staff and volunteers. Because of our standard of care and commitment to high-risk rescues, the “cost per adoption” can vary greatly between cats. Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue takes great pride in shouldering the responsibility of caring for our feline friends and ensures that each cat receives all necessary veterinary care for however long they may be residents of our shelter or foster homes. This, combined with the shelter’s exponential growth over the past five years, has resulted in an extremely tight budget.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue does not receive any civic or federal funding to support our operating expenses. Instead, we rely on memberships, grants, and fundraisers to cover the costs of saving lives. Individual donations such as yours make up roughly one-third of Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue’s annual income, making it possible to save more lives.
Shelters like Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue are needed in Denver to provide a safe and secure environment for all cats, including those who are FeLV+ and FIV+ or diagnosed with special needs. Without your support, a countless number of cats would be homeless and neglected each year.
By donating to Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue, you directly increase the number of cats and kittens we can save together.
