We are a non-profit (501(c)(3), all-volunteer-powered, charitable 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 pet ownership, and helping mitigate the cost of
spay and neuter services.
768 pet cats and dogs were spayed or neutered through our Low Cost Spay Neuter Programs and our Free Spay/Neuter Clinics.
391 feral cats and kittens were trapped, spayed/neutered and vaccinated through our Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Program. Some went into our Uber Kitty Program to be adopted and the rest were returned to their communities.
332 cats and kittens were surrendered to JJ's by their owners. Through our Uber Kitty Program, all of these cats and kittens were fostered and found homes. There is NO cost for owners to surrender their cats/kittens.
JJ's provided more than 2,200 low-cost vaccinations for cats and dogs - in conjunction with JJ's spay/neuter, Uber and TNR 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!
JJ’s is absolutely elated to share some BIG news! A building has been donated to us to start a cat shelter in Cañon City! It will be called Molly’s Place – Home of JJ’s Helping Paws and it will serve as a shelter for owner-surrendered cats (last year we fostered nearly 500 owner-surrendered cats – at no cost to the cat owner!!!); our low cost spay and neuter voucher sales; our feral food pantry; and our TNR program.
Can you please help us? We have building expenses for renovations, plumbing needs, fixtures, equipment and cat furnishings. Please consider donating to our brand new, all-volunteer cat shelter serving the entire community of Fremont County! JJ’s is so grateful for your support.
Molly’s Place – Home of JJ’s Helping Paws
Molly (named after the unsinkable Molly Brown and pictured at right) was a cat rescued by JJ’s. She had a broken front leg, an eye swollen shut, and was missing a lot of fur. Through JJ’s programs, she received medical attention and lots of love from a foster parent – and she thrived!!! JJ's is just like Molly - small but mighty!!
We are always looking for more volunteers (see JJ's Wish List tab for volunteer opportunities). There are lots of ways to contribute time and skills or come learn a new skill to help JJ's make a difference in our community.
Thank you for your support - it truly takes a village to help cats and dogs in need. Thank you!
