BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SOCIETY – NETWORK PARTNER
We're also proud to announce that we have recently become a network partner with Best Friends Animal Society.
Best Friends believes that collaboration with local pet shelters and animal rescue organizations – the people who know their communities best – is key to ending the killing in America’s shelters.
The No More Homeless Pets® Network is comprised of 501(c)(3) public charity rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and shelters – actively saving lives and reducing shelter deaths locally. Being a part of "the Network" gives groups, like us, all across the country the chance to work together to "Save Them All" and provides help for animal shelters and rescue groups.
We'll be partnering with Best Friends for a June adoption promotion, so stay tuned, and check back here, on our website, for all the event details!

May Volunteer of the Month:
We love our volunteers! They give so much to help
us, so we're giving them a big "shout-out" with our Volunteer of the Month feature.
Introducing our May Volunteer of the Month –
Miranda Prince. What she loves best about volunteering with Colony Cats is getting to be with all the cats, learning what she can, and making sure they all get a home.
Miranda's advice for new Colony Cats volunteers is to just keep coming! It may be difficult at first, but suddenly you'll never want to stop. Click here to read more and learn about Miranda.
