We do not receive any government, corporate or other funding and rely on donations and adoption fees to survive. The last few years have been a bit difficult due to the economy, but with your help we've been able to continue the life saving work we do. We are in need of your continued support to keep our doors open.

We have an ongoing wishlist but we always seem to be short of
MONETARY DONATIONS, Cleaning Supplies such as Bleach, Liquid Laundry Detergent, Hand Sanitizer & Soap, Paper Towels, CANNED CAT & Kitten FOOD, KITTY LITTER (clay for the kittens and clumping for adults).
If you are cleaning out your baby items, drop off blankets you no longer need for your baby to our shelter. Our baby kittens will be very appreciative!
ANGELS WITH PAWS promotes responsible pet ownership with every adoption. Our hope is that any owner considering relinquishing their cats is educated on treatable and fixable problems in order to try to keep the cat in the existing home whenever possible. We educate our clientele regarding cat specific issues: spay/neauter, declawing, not allowing cats to free-roam (inside vs. outside), allergies, other animals in the household, litter box concerns and other feline issues.
Adopting a Friend:
If you are interested in any of our kitties that you see on PETFINDER.COM, please call (303-274-2264) to confirm availability.
Angels with Paws have cats at the Petsmart at Stapleton, and the Petsmart Applewood on Youngfield and in Ft. Collins. We also have cats at PetCos: 8100 W. Crestline Littleton, CO 80123, 17132 West Colfax Avenue Golden, CO 80401, in Aurora on Quincy, Petco Park Meadows, Westminster 6735 W 88th Ave Westminster, CO 80031 and Petco in Loveland/Ft. Collins. We have a large selection of sweet cats there for adoption. If you are out in those areas, stop by and visit our feline friends! Even if you aren't looking for a pet, please tell your friends, relatives, and neighbors if they are looking for a new addition to their home to stop by for a visit! All of the cats that we place there for adoption are in need of a good home. They each have a profile posted and there is a nice area where you can visit with them to see if it is a good match!
1:00 -6:00 p.m. Daily
$75.00 - Adult Cat
$95.00 - Kitten (0-12 months)
Discounts apply for two kitties adopted together and sometimes for older or special needs cats
Basic vaccination series (we do not vaccinate for Rabies or FeLV, but many of our cats are vaccinated for these as well)
Test for FELV/FIV Virus and Heartworm (not all shelters do these tests)
The cost of getting a "free" kitten and having all this done can easily exceed $100 and perhaps endanger your other pets, so you're getting a discount by going through the shelter! It also helps to partially cover the costs to the shelter (the basic costs of each cat and kitten averages $200-$300 which does not take into account the length of time that the cats are in our care prior to adoption, with many being much more depending on health issues)
Our cats and kittens are examined by our vet techs on staff and our shelter vet, Dr. Janet Taylor. We make a great effort to find out about the previous history of each cat to find a good fit for both parties.
