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 AUGUST KITTY OF THE MONTH
Patches was adopted!! WOOHOO!
Patches has found her furrever family! Now we’d like you to meet Trinity.
Meow! Meow! My name is Trinity and I’m a sweet, black, short-haired kitty with beautiful golden eyes. I’m deaf — but that doesn’t stop me! I’ll probably be a little shy until I get to know you and no matter what, I love to be petted. I would prefer to be in a home with only adults and no dogs. I promise that I’ll be your purrfect, loving lap cat. I’m spayed, microchipped and up to date with my shots. My adoption fee is $75.
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 AUGUST VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Please join us in congratulating Allen Williamson as our August volunteer of the month!
Allen, 15 years old and a Colorado Springs native, has a heart to volunteer and loves serving and helping others. Allen reached out to Wild Blue earlier this year to find out about volunteer opportunities and joined one of the Saturday adoption teams. Once the school year ended, he started helping out weekly at the sanctuary as well. Allen also volunteers with 1st-5th graders at his church and even volunteered to take on one of the lead roles in theater this past spring with no prior drama training and an already full load of classes at school.
Allen’s family first learned about Wild Blue 2 years ago when they adopted a kitten. Sadly, that kitten had some health issues and was only a part of Allen’s family for a few short months before passing. He is excited to share that at a recent Wild Blue adoption fair, his family adopted a new kitten (Elko) and named him Fitz. Fitz enjoys giving Allen kisses, cuddling and playing. Allen also has two German shepherd/husky sister dogs.
Allen attends The Classical Academy in District 20 and will soon be a 10th grader. He is a part of the College Pathways program at T.C.A. and will be taking 3 college classes at P.P.C.C. in the fall in addition to 3 high school classes. He excels in school, enjoys learning and works hard at all he does.
Allen enjoys reading and when he finds a book that piques his interest, typically fantasy, he will devour it. He is a loyal friend and a great listener. He is very observant of the world around him and is great at peacekeeping. Allen has a dry and witty sense of humor that keeps his family on their toes. He is always willing to help, and does so with a happy and willing heart. This is an asset that will get him far in life. He is a joy to be around.
As Allen looks towards the future, his interests change as he grows and experiences new activities and interests. At the moment, his interests lie in the following fields: science (biology), arts and entertainment. He has recently gotten his driver’s permit and is learning the roads. Allen is a great young man with wonderful future goals. Wild Blue is lucky to have him on our team! Let’s hear it for Allen!
