Re-Homing Your Pet?

At Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic, we understand that there are situations in which people may wonder if keeping their cat is the best option for them or the cat. We are here to help; our mission is to make every pet a healthy and wanted pet. Before you decide to re-home or relinquish your cat, please view our alternatives to surrender.

If you are seeking information about re-homing a cat or kitten you ADOPTED from Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic, please call the shelter at (970) 484-8516. We always take back any cats adopted from us, but if we can help you keep the cat, we would love to assist you in that way as well.

Finding Pet-Friendly Housing

Finding pet-friendly housing is easier than ever! There are several resources available online. Please check out these websites to help you find housing for you and your pets:

Temporary Housing

If you need to find temporary housing or boarding for your pet, the following resources may help you:

Found a Stray or Feral Cat?

Stray Cat:

If you have found a stray cat in your neighborhood, the best thing to do first is to contact the humane society or animal control provider for your county. When you file a found-animal report, your local humane society can help you determine if the cat is owned.

Stray Kittens or Cat with Kittens:

Find a kitten outside? It may not be abandoned but just unsupervised by its mom at the moment. Please read this Best Friends article for tips on how to determine if the kitten is orphaned, or whether mom is just away. When you come across outdoor kittens, you may feel the need to immediately pick them up and bring them home with you, but that might not be the best thing for the kittens - or for you. Learn how to tell how old a kitten is. For additional information about stray kittens, please check out this article by Alley Cat Allies.

For Trap-Neuter-Return resources and additional help, please visit FCCRSNC's Community Cat Program page, where we also have an assistance request form. Two other local agencies that also help feral and community cats are: Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals or Colorado Kitty Coalition.

*FCCRSNC is a limited-admission shelter and receives animals by appointment only. We cannot accept cats on a walk-in basis. If you have found a stray cat and cannot keep it in your home, please see FCCRSNC's Intake Process.*
