"We're still celebrating our 30th anniversary of taking care of Denver's kittens and cats, and a cupcake sale in Downtown Denver seemed like the perfect September party," Shiffer-Krieger says. "Our Cat Care Society operates a limited admission cage free shelter for homeless and abused cats while providing community outreach services to enrich the lives of people and cats."

About the 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.

For an overview of the Society's 30th Anniversary Milestones, visit: http://tinyurl.com/CatCareSociety30th.

The CCS' 14,000th cat, Jackpot, was adopted out to his 'forever home' in May. This achievement, on average for CCS, is 467 cat adoptions per year, or 1.25 adoptions per day, every day for the Cat Care Society's first thirty years.

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, Cajun's Closet Thrift Store, the holiday gift and bake sale and much more.
