JJ’s Helping Paws
OUR CORE MISSION
We are a non-profit, all-volunteer-powered 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.
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!
Our services are available by APPOINTMENT ONLY (we have a small volunteer staff).
