From rescuer Barbara:
I am asking for help for some cats that have gotten stranded in Colorado Springs, in particular, anyone who could foster or transport in the area. The very small rescue I work with in the Springs is short on fosters but can provide supplies and I would cover gas if transport is needed…
Details: Rescuers in Oklahoma often transport cats to Colorado where they have a better chance of being adopted. Karen sent 6 cats via rescue flight to a rescue in Pueblo. Unfortunately the rescuer there tried to take too many and got busted. Karen’s cats ended up at the HSPPR. She has no way of getting them back. No other rescues have room at this time. HSPPR is also charging Karen the regular adoption fee to get the cats out. She is not a 501(©3) and does rescue on her own dime.
Penelope and Rose are wobblies – they have cerebral hypoplasia. I have offered to take them – problem is I now live in Tallahassee FL. Second problem – the kittens are being treated for ringworm. Once we get them out of the shelter, they will need a foster until they are cleared to be transported and we can arrange transport. The alternative is to try boarding them, which is expensive.
The other four who also need fosters (or adopters): Sage (male) and Jill (both grey tabbies) are adults; Sterling (brown tabby) and Judah (grey) are about 9-10 months old. If anyone can foster them – supplies provided – please let me know.
I have Barbara’s email and phone number; if you can help (or know someone who can), leave a comment, or contact me at annelaurie (dot) bj (at) gmail (dot) com.
