Critter Events for March 1st-7th


As the days start to get longer, more animal events are getting added to the schedule as well! Here’s what’s on tap for this week that I was able to find. In honor of the Diamonds Are Furever Whiskers and Wags Jubilee this weekend, I decided to feature an adoptable from the Fort Collins Spay and Neuter Clinic. Henry is 8 years old and a very loyal, loving cat. He would be best as the only cat in the house with calm, older children. A family with dogs could be an option if introduced slowly.
