About Cat Care Society
The CCS, founded in 1981 by Linda East, DVM and Lynn Rowe, is a nonprofit organization established to improve the quality of life for homeless, injured and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area. The Society's goals are:
* To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals, and the elimination of pet overpopulation;
* To shelter cats in a healthy, cage free environment and to find compatible and responsible families for every cat;
* To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people;
* To be a friend to all cats.
The CCS is supported by a number of loyal members and contributors, without whom the shelter could not operate. CCS receives no government funding. In addition, CCS volunteers assist with many fundraising activities each year such as book sales, Meow Mart, Tails of the Painted Cats, the holiday gift and bake sale and much more.
