We are located on the east end of Manitou Springs, just 5 minutes from downtown Colorado Springs. Take Highway 24 west (exit 141 off I-25, toward the mountains) and take the first Manitou Springs exit. Turn right and go a block past the first light at Savelli’s. We’re in a Southwest-style building on the south side of the street, with plenty of free parking!
Do you need to find a new home for your cat?
If you are one of our adopters, please fill out the form below immediately or call us at 719-362-4600. We always prioritize our kitties to help find them new homes.
Our intake availability varies for other cats, depending on whether we have room at the Haven, which depends on the number of adoptions the week before. Please call us for more information or email us.
If you are planning ahead and can wait 2 – 4 months, we will put your cat on our Waiting List and work you in. Please fill out the form below and ask us for a Surrender Application.
We will get back to you within 48 hours during the week. If you don’t hear back from us within that time, please call us at 719-362-4600 to make sure we received it.
Have you found baby kittens outside?
We can almost always make room for kittens and their moms in our Foster Program, especially if you are willing to help out for a few weeks.
We always take care of the moms first, getting them inside and taking time to assess them for adoptability. A terrified house cat will act feral at first, so she needs time to show her friendly side.
If moms are truly feral, we fix them and make sure they become cared-for community cats. If they are just scared, we fix them and work with them until time to find homes of their own. We provide medical, physical and behavioral support while the kittens are being raised.
Orphan kittens need round-the-clock care at first. Please be aware that not all shelters have the resources to try to keep orphan kittens alive; some do euthanize. If you go elsewhere, please ask questions to make sure you know where your orphan kittens will end up before surrendering them.
