Welcome to C.L.A.W.S.

Cats League & Assistance of the Western Slope

Clipart-Email-726886.png

CLAWS is the largest cat rescue on the Western Slope of Colorado.

 

Our mission is to provide shelter and care for abandoned and homeless cats,

with the goal of finding them permanent homes or providing them with a lifetime home in our facility.  

 

We believe all

Cats Lives Are Worth Saving   

 

We do not discriminate based on age, circumstance, or medical history. 

 CLAWS is a guaranteed adoption, shelter in which every treatable cat will receive

all the care they need and can call CLAWS home for the rest of their lives......

or until they find their perfect family through adoption.

 

CLAWS  is a sanctuary shelter, which means we do not euthanize for space or because a cat has been with us for an extended amount of time. 

As such, we almost always have a waiting list for cats to enter our facility.  We balance owner surrender intake with intake from partner shelters and shelters in crisis. 

 

CLAWS is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which means we are entirely dependent

upon donations, grants, and events to run the shelter.  All donations are tax-deductible.

 

CLAWS is staffed by dedicated volunteers who work hard every day,

365 days a year, to clean and maintain the shelter, feed, love, and care for our furry residents, organize and run adoptions, provide foster homes, fundraise, and attend to the administrative and financial tasks.

 

We hope you will join us in honor of all the cats that deserved better.

 

"You can do something big, you can do something small,because whatever you do, is better than nothing at all."
