Planting Party & Garden Dedication



Do you have a green thumb? Do you like kitties? Want to put two great loves together?

Happy Cats Haven just moved into our new, expanded shelter and we are now in the process of working on our landscaping! We are creating our Purrflection Garden at Planet Happy Cat with plants that are xeric and deer-resistant.

If you’re a gardener, please download our plant list to see if you have any plants in your garden you can spare or share. Call or email us with your “foster plants” and we’ll save a space to plant them during our Planting Party event from 9-11 am on Saturday, September 7.

If you have your own shovels, spades or knee pads, please bring them too! Thanks to our Girl Scout volunteers Kai & Ella from Troop 44523 for creating and sponsoring a garden for us and to Good Earth Garden Center for their fertilizer to get the plants off to a good start.

Big purrs also  to the Manitou Springs Garden club for helping us incorporate permaculture into the designs!

Then join us on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 3 pm–National Pet Memorial Day–to dedicate the Purrflection Garden at Happy Cats Haven.

Pastor Bosley-Mitchell, Pastor Joe Kirkendall and our very own Pastor Faye Gallegos will bless and dedicate the space for us and offer a celebration of life for your beloved pets who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

We will have refreshments, courtesy of our Girl Scouts, and tours of Planet Happy Cat, our new building at 327 Manitou Avenue in Manitou Springs.

We are located just two blocks west of the first Manitou Springs exit off Highway 24, only 10 minutes from downtown Colorado Springs, with plenty of free parking!
