Spring The Seniors! - March 21 to June 20 at Cat Care Society

Barney, Bob, Braveheart, Brietta, Cirrus, Fiona, Frederick, Jasper, Krista, Lenny. Leo, Lucy, Macy, Maggie, Mango, Miles, Missy, Muggins, Ohms, Paisley, Rosie, Ruby, Sammie, Sue Sioux, Tara and Wind‐Up are ready to spring into their Forever Homes.

Let’s help them do it! March 21—June 20, 2014 

Adoption fees for senior kitties are flexible, like our cats, including our popular “Name Your Price” donation, introduced two years ago.

Kittens are cute, but they can be exhausting. Senior cats are not as demanding. They are less likely to climb the curtains or chew on things. Older cats will give you years of unconditional love, and you can give them the best years of their life.

If medical costs are a concern, don’t worry! If you adopt a cat 10 years or older from Cat Care Society, you are eligible for our Perpet‐U‐Care program, providing up to $250 worth of annual veterinary care at our clinic to offset medical costs. Learn more about Perpet-U-Care at

Cat Care Society: Senior Kitties Ellen and Grayson Love Their New Forever Homes

Good news from Ellen and Grayson, who recently moved from Cat Care Society to their Forever Homes...

Ellen - prefers to lie on her cat tower and window watch most of the day and also likes to sit beside her owner while receiving pets. She is doing well in her new home. Sweet Ellen had been waiting patiently since September 15, 2007.

Grayson - fits in well with the family dynamics since the owners said he chose them and loves to chase his canine housemates around the house for playtime. Garyson had been at the shelter since January 19 of this year.

Congratulations to Ellen, Grayson and their new families!

'The top 15 cities for biotech venture funding' - Metro Denver Ranks 12th

Quoting from yesterday's posting by FierceBiotech, where Metro Denver is 12th in the ranking:

"Thanks in large part to the influence of the University of Colorado in nearby Boulder, the Denver metro area is home to a small but growing life sciences community, and while its 2013 haul pales in comparison to those of the nation's established hubs, the Mile High City is shaping up to be a fertile ground, particularly for med tech companies."
