Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic opened a satellite location in Loveland on Oct. 7 to help increase cat adoptions and to broaden the reach of its services for pet owners and animals in need, including spay/neuter scheduling, Kibble Supply distribution and application assistance for its Prevent A Litter+ program.
The FCCRSNC Cat Adoption & Resource Center will be located in the Spring Hills Plaza at 617 E. Eisenhower Blvd., Unit 16, in Loveland. The center will feature up to eight adoptable adult cats and a litter of kittens and will be open to the public from noon-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday. During its grand opening week, the adoption fees at the Loveland location will be $25 off for both adults and kittens.
“Since the recent flooding, we’ve taken in over 200 homeless and displaced cats and need to find new homes for all of them,” said Sarah Swanty, executive director of Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic. “To help us achieve that, we’re opening this temporary facility in Loveland and also plan to use it as an opportunity to make our important human services more accessible to southern Larimer County.”
Information about all of Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic’s services will be available at the Loveland resource center, including the ability to schedule spay/neuter surgeries or vaccinations for its Fort Collins clinic, by calling (970) 669-1689 or visiting the facility at 617 E. Eisenhower Blvd. #16. Pet owners in dire need of food for their dog or cat can also pick up an emergency supply at the Loveland site through FCCRSNC’s Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry.
“We’re very excited to have this chance to expand and help even more people and animals,” Swanty said. “It would not be possible without the generosity of Kelly and Ron Busby of Busby Properties, who are donating the property for one month and making it very affordable if we want to stay longer.”
Swanty said the organization expects to need the satellite location for at least four months to promote adoptions of the dozens of cats and kittens rescued from the flood. Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic answered calls for help from several other animal rescue groups affected by the disaster. Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals brought in 57 cats from Evans after two mobile home parks were destroyed. Longmont Humane Society transferred 30 cats; and 19 arrived from Humane Society of Weld County.
