Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue (RMFR) was founded in 1982 with the mission to care for homeless, abandoned, abused, and neglected cats. Today, RMFR is a limited-intake, free-roaming shelter with the capacity to have up to 125 cats and kittens on-site.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue strives to have an impact on homeless cats and kittens by providing shelter and partnering with local veterinarians to deliver comprehensive medical care and life saving surgeries. At RMFR, we partner with high risk shelters throughout the nation to reduce euthanasia rates and provide shelter for special cat populations, including those diagnosed as FIV+ and FeLV+. In 2019, RMFR was able to provide shelter and medical treatment, including in-house surgeries, for over 3,100 cats and kittens.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue relies on the partnership of our local community through individual donations and fundraising efforts to support all operational expenses, as we do not contract with local governing bodies or receive government funding. We are committed to serving the needs of homeless cats by offering safe indoor and outdoor spaces at our shelter, which allows our residents the freedom to explore their surroundings and genuinely interact with people and other cats. In addition, RMFR partners with local in-store adoption programs to maximize all opportunities for members of our community to adopt their next family member. Our cats are able to develop strong social skills through a robust foster network of dedicated volunteers who provide healthy, in-home environments for RMFR cats and kittens until they are ready to be adopted.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue is committed to finding a safe and healthy home for every cat that we are able to accept into our shelter. At RMFR, we do not have expectations for how long it should take for a cat to find the right home, and we only euthanize when medically necessary after all other avenues have been exhausted. We believe that every cat deserves a second chance, and we ensure that during the time each cat spends with us, we make it a life worth living.
What is Connect for Care?
You will receive information about complementary health care support with your adoption paperwork. Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue uses Connect for Care, a program developed by the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association and CATalyst Council.
The Connect for Care program provides newly adopted pets with a complimentary wellness exam at a participating veterinary practice. Please plan to schedule an exam right away; the appointment must be within 14 days of adoption to qualify. At this initial exam, the veterinarian will discuss your pet’s health, core vaccination needs, and any questions or concerns you might have. The initial exam is free thanks to the charitable efforts of participating veterinary practices. Charges may apply for vaccinations, treatments, or other medications for medical issues not related to a shelter illness. In addition, if your pet becomes sick with a shelter-related illness within 14 days of adoption, the participating veterinary practice has generously committed to providing your pet with treatment at no cost to you.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue maintains a vested interest in every adopted cat. If for any reason you have to find a new home for a cat or kitten you have adopted from RMFR, please contact the shelter first.
If you are unable to adopt an animal at this time, consider making a difference by sponsoring or making a donation.
