The recent flood in Colorado displaced many feral cats and kittens. Alley Cat Allies is providing financial assistance to local cat rescue groups, including funding for medical care, spay/neuter surgeries, food, and supplies for rebuilding destroyed feeding stations and shelters. We also sent the groups two dozen traps, which will not only serve the displaced cats, but will also enable the groups to continue Trap-Neuter Return well into the future. In addition to financial assistance, we’ve helped some of the local groups coordinate their rescue efforts to help save even more cats’ lives.
Have you or someone you know been affected by the flooding in Colorado? If you are looking for a pet or feral cat displaced during the flood, or if you would like to help displaced animals, check with your area shelter. Check online or call, and also go in person if you’re looking for a missing cat. If you’re concerned about a colony of cats you have been caring for, call your local shelter and ask who you should contact regarding feral and stray cats. Longmont Humane Society and Weld County Humane Society have webpages devoted to animals displaced by the flood.
If you live in the affected area and are rescuing cats, we want to hear from you! Send us an email at [email protected].
In the event of an emergency it’s important to have a disaster response plan in place for your family, companion animals, and feral cat colonies. Read our disaster readiness advice at https://www.alleycat.org/DisasterTips.
