Cat Care Society (CCS) was founded in 1981 by Linda East, DVM and Lynn Rowe. CCS is a nonprofit organization and was established in order to improve the quality of life for homeless, injured and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area. The Society's goals are:

* To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals, and the elimination of pet overpopulation;
* To shelter cats in a healthy, cage free environment and to find compatible and responsible families for every cat;
* To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people;
* To be a friend to all cats.

The shelter provides a temporary refuge for up to 50 cats until an appropriate and permanent home can be found for each. Veterinary care, premium diet, and human interaction are lovingly provided.

The large number of phone calls received each day from people who have found stray, abused or abandoned cats needing good homes indicates a strong community need for our services. We receive an average of 70 phone calls for assistance daily. Sadly, more than half of these are from owners giving up their cats. Information about placing the cats is provided in addition to referrals to other area shelters when we are full. Many calls involve behavioral problems or are questions about feral (wild) cats. Behavior counseling and printed articles on a wide variety of topics are available. Humane traps are also available to rent.

Cat Care Society is supported by a number of loyal members and contributors, without whom we could not operate. We receive no government funding. In addition, our volunteers assist with many fund-raising activities each year such as plant sales, Meow Mart, Cajun's Closet, a holiday gift and bake sale, booths at community events, and much more. Funding from the Gladys Bartz Trust enables Cat Care Society to help needy cats that will never enter the shelter. The Trust provides funds for spays, neuters, vaccinations, and limited medical care for strays or for cats belonging to people unable or unwilling to provide these services.
