Critter Events for February 21st – 28th


Are you ready to brave the wind? If so, here are the upcoming events for this week! Looks like Saturday is an action packed day.

If you are interested in adopting this little cutie, Captain Jack, he’s available through the Fort Collins Cat Rescue and Spay/Neuter Clinic. Captain Jack is a male, adult domestic short hair that really loves other cats. He also does well with dogs and has such an amazing personality. Captain Jack is on a few medications a day to help him with his allergies, but he takes them easily and does not seem bothered by them. He’s currently living in a foster home, so e-mail Carey at to find out more information and to visit this wonderful guy.
