December Volunteer of the Month:
AMANDA PAISLEY

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 December Volunteer of the Month – Amanda Paisley. One of the things she likes best about volunteering with Colony Cats is talking to everyone who comes into the adoption center and answering questions they might have about cats.

Amanda's advice for new Colony Cats volunteers is that there is always something to do, and many ways to get involved. Click here to read more and learn about Amanda.

LOVE IS POSITIVE with an FIV+ Cat
and FIVE are FREE!*

Did you know that Colony Cats Adoption Center has an FIV+ Cat Room? We do – and it's full of positively beautiful and loving FIV+ cats! Come in and meet these special kitties today - they're waiting for you. Being FIV+ doesn't matter to them - being loved does.

Normally our adoption fee for an FIV+ cat is $25, however one of our awesome supporters is sponsoring the adoption fees for the next 5 FIV+ cats that are adopted (*with approved application).

FIV+ cats can live healthy, long lives in a low-stress environment with proper veterinary care when needed. All of our FIV+ cats are vetted, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

HIRE OUR BARNYARD GUARDIANS
TO WORK FOR YOU!

Our Barnyard Guardians are all-natural, pesticide-free, rodent controllers. Whether you have a barn, warehouse, brewery, horse farm, grainery, etc., these beautiful healthy cats are pros at keeping pesty critters from moving in.

We provide fully vetted, spayed/neutered, feral/semi-feral cats. (We do ask that you take two for bonding.) You provide shelter, daily food/water (cats can't live on mice alone), and veterinary care as needed. Most importantly you provide a second chance at life for a pair of homeless cats who may have had a less fortunate future.

Click Here to download our Barn Cats Information Flyer for more details. Print it out and share it with someone you know who might benefit from these helpers. If you have any questions, or are interested in barn cats call 614-570-0471 – leave a message and we will contact you – or Click Here to email.

PREVENT MORE. FIX AT MONTH FOUR.

Cats and dogs can get pregnant much sooner than you think. 50% of all pets born are accidents. Spay or neuter your pet at four months old to help prevent those accidents and save millions from being killed in shelters each year. Visit fixatfour.com for more information.

Colony Cats is excited to announce that we are a network partner of 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.
