465 pet cats and dogs were spayed or neutered through our local partner veterinarians.
450 feral cats and kittens were trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and returned to their communities to prevent uncontrolled feral cat births and help maintain overall colony health.
412 cats and kittens were surrendered to JJ's. Through our Uber Kitty Program, all of these cats and kittens have found forever homes with loving families.
1,850 vaccinations were provided to cats and dogs in conjunction with JJ's various programs.
More than 600 cats receive food assistance from JJ's Feral Food Bank every single day of the year!
With the help of our volunteers, veterinarian partners, the community and our board, we have made a tremendous difference in Fremont County!
THANK YOU, ALL!
We are so proud of this achievement! We owe it to our board, our volunteers, our dedicated partners and the Fremont County community.
WE ARE A NON-PROFIT, ALL-VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION WHOSE MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF CATS AND DOGS IN FREMONT COUNTY BY WORKING TO REDUCE UNWANTED LITTERS, EDUCATING PET OWNERS ABOUT RESPONSIBLE OWNERSHIP, AND HELPING MITIGATE THE COSTS OF SPAY AND NEUTER SERVICES.
Through donations, small grants and the generosity of three veterinarians, we are able to offer low-cost spay/neuter vouchers to Fremont County pet owners.
Community/feral cat colonies (cats not socialized to humans) are abundant in Fremont County. Through our TNR (trap/neuter/return) program, we ensure that colonies dramatically reduce kitten births and as a result, remain generally healthy and lead a better quality of life.
Community cat colonies can benefit the community by keeping the rodent population in check. If you are aware of community/feral cats, please contact us.

In 2017, we managed more than 60 healthy cat communities!
Kittens born into feral colonies (young enough to be socialized about 5-6 weeks old) have the opportunity to be adopted as pets into loving homes. After they are weaned from their mother, kittens are fostered and transferred to one of our rescue partners for adoption. Our carefully selected and licensed* partners adhere to our rigorous standards of care, so we know the kittens are in good hands on their way to their forever homes!
As part of this program, JJ's requires that the mother cat is spayed (at JJ's expense through our TNR program) to prevent the cycle of unwanted litters.
JJ’s can offer a similar rescue to adoption service to people with unwanted pet cats/kittens (sorry, no dogs). The service for pet cats is on a very limited basis, only as our resources allow.
All of our rescue partners are PACFA* licensed, have been thoroughly reviewed by us, and are visited regularly to insure they offer a safe environment to give the cat his/her best opportunity to find a forever home. Our partners NEVER euthanize for population control. Our partners are generally located in metropolitan areas where there is a larger population of potential adoptive homes. This service is provided at no cost to the cat owner but we do kindly ask that you consider a donation.
* The Pet Animal Care Facilities Act (PACFA) is a licensing and inspection program dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of animals in pet care facilities throughout Colorado. We also work with carefully selected shelters who meet our rigid standards.
