Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue in Denver, Colorado is committed to the care and shelter of homeless cats and kittens. Since 1982, they've taken in, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of abandoned, stray, and unwanted cats every year.
As a limited-admission, no-kill cat rescue, their goal is to find loving, forever homes for as many down-on-their luck homeless cats as possible.
In 2019 alone they provided shelter and medical care to over 3,100 cats and kittens!
