Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary
Since its launch in 2010, Wild Blue has saved the lives of close to 2500 animals with adoptions spreading to as far away as Nebraska and North Carolina. Wild Blue also has an active foster program with more than 75 animals currently being served.
Thanks to your caring and support during 2015, the Sanctuary was able to rescue more than 475 cats and kittens in need. That number included 387 kittens brought into the Wild Blue program from trap-neuter-return (TNR), transfers from other rescues and the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, strays & relinquishments. Each kitten is spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We were able to find loving homes for a total of 415 of the 475 rescued kitties during the past year and the others have either been adopted so far this month, placed into foster care or are living happily at the Sanctuary. None of this live saving work would be possible without YOU!
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our individual donors, grantors and fundraising partners who supported us in 2015! We would not be able to exist without the dollars given and partnerships formed with these organizations. Thank you to the ASPCA (Lil BUB’s Big Fund for the ASPCA), Best Friends Animal Society – Save them All, Colorado Gives Day, Colorado Pet Overpopulation License Plate Fund Grant, Love Animals, Saving Pets Challenge, Petco Foundation and the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund.
With your help in the form of time, donations, and dedication we can help match rescued animals to loving owners, one at a time, and change both lives forever! Bringing hearts together, how exciting!
For security purposes access to the Sanctuary is by appointment only.
To make an appointment to come and visit the kitties — please call us at least a day in advance at (719) 213-1127. Otherwise come and see us at our PetCo adoption fairs on Saturdays from 12noon-4p.m. Thank you for your understanding!

WILD BLUE’S SEPTEMBER KITTY OF THE MONTH
WOOHOO! Takoma was adopted!
Please meet our next kitty of the month for September, Tomahawk!
Meow, meow, I’m Tomahawk. I’m a very handsome, male cat approximately 6 years old. I’m friendly and good with other cats being around me, but I’m a bit timid. I warm up fairly easily though to people who want to pet me and love on me, as long as they approach me slowly. I tested FIV positive, so I am a special needs cat.
I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date with my shots. My special adoption fee for the month of September is only $25! If you would like to be pre-approved to adopt me, please submit an online adoption application. If you would like to meet me, please contact Wild Blue at (719) 964-8905 or (719) 213-1127 to schedule an appointment. Hope to see you soon!

THANK YOU TO OUR SEPTEMBER VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Sarah Carpenter as our September volunteer of the month!
Sarah is a competitive figure skater and she loves animals. She has been figure skating since she was five years old and currently trains at the World Arena’s Olympic training center. Aside from skating, she loves music, singing, and acting. She sang in an original musical and a choir. She will be joining a band so that she can extend her musical abilities. After acting in a musical, she definitely knew she wanted to act more, and is finding small roles locally.
Sarah’s family has 2 dogs, a cat, and 7 pet chickens (not for eating). Add to that her 2 chinchillas, her Wild Blue kitty, and her younger brother’s lizard and it becomes quite a lot! Her cute gray cat, Custard, (shown here) who she adopted from Wild Blue soon became best friends with her orange cat, Nemo. It sounds like thunder when they run through the house playing together!
With her skating, acting and volunteering at Wild Blue, a public school schedule didn’t work very well, so Sarah is homeschooled and she absolutely loves it. Her two favorite things to study are nutrition and alternative medicine, but she is also interested in robotics and engineering, specifically, their applications in prosthetic design. She would like this to become her career and she would also like to build her own computer with the help of her older brother, who is a brilliant, innovative, genius when it comes to computers and most things really. (He typed that!) Because of what she has learned from her interests in nutrition and alternative medicine, Sarah follows a pescatarian diet. She also loves researching gardening and self-sustainability.
Despite having a lot of activities, Sarah still has free time to spend with her family and pets, to play with her neighbors, or to study more. She loves of works fiction and her favorite titles include the Ranger’s Apprentice books, Fablehaven, the Harry Potter series and the Percy Jackson series.
Regardless of where all these things take her, Sarah believes that life is best lived in the moment enjoying its many great aspects. Right now, some of those are Sarah’s great parents, brothers, friends, chinchillas, cat, and every other furry friend she has. Sarah is very grateful that she can add Wild Blue and everyone helping here to this list of people and adventures that make her life so beautiful. Let’s hear it for Sarah!
