Fort Collins Critter Events May 2nd – May 9th



It’s definitely a busy weekend in Fort Collins! There are lots of cat and dog adoption opportunities, details on training at the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, an Animal Afternoon at the library and more. I’ve also included information on upcoming races.

This week’s adoptable is Ander from Animal House Rescue & Grooming. Who can resist that face and the two different colored eyes? He’s a 3 year old Pug/Australian Shepherd mix that’s a mix of puppy, class clown and snuggler. Ander loves walks, running and gets along with people, dogs and cats.
