Our Story

Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic (FCCRSNC) is a well-established Colorado nonprofit organization founded in 2006. Our mission at Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic is to prevent pet homelessness. Our vision is that every pet is a healthy and wanted pet. We have committed ourselves since 2006 to achieving these goals by providing vital and in-demand services to our community, including:


None of this could have been accomplished without the support of the local community. The demand for our services and donations we continue to receive are a testament to how Fort Collins and the surrounding area have embraced our mission.

Thank you!

Our History

We were founded in June 2006 by two young veterinary technicians who saw a need for a cat-focused rescue in our community, where homeless cats were being euthanized at more than double the rate of dogs at the local humane society. Our shelter serves the needs of homeless cats who need a second chance at life, and many of them are transferred in from other shelters where they are at risk of euthanasia. We opened our low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter clinic in March 2007 to address pet overpopulation, the root cause of euthanasia in the region, and to provide spay/neuter services as essential veterinary care to more people. We quickly learned from many of our clients that it was hard to afford sterilization surgery and basic pet care even at our low prices. Over the years, we’ve seen a steadily growing need for services that keep animals in their homes and out of crowded open-admission shelters, so we expanded our focus to include community resources for pet owners to help keep pets in loving homes.

Where We Are Now



Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic is having a big impact on the community. Our shelter adopts out over 2,000 cats and kittens each year and has surpassed the 17,500 mark in the number of cats rescued. Our Live Release Rate in 2018 was 97.0%. An average of 6,000 dogs and cats are spayed or neutered in our clinic each year, and we've performed over 60,000 surgeries since 2007. The rescue has expanded into several units at its current location, with more space to help pets and their owners. The clinic and shelter employ over 30 staff, and an army of over 400 volunteers help take care of the kitties, help community pets, and do fundraising and community outreach.
