The paws that refresh

Dear Editor,

When the stresses of a world in turmoil or merely a bad day at work threaten to overwhelm us, help is just a cat-in-the-lap away. Feline therapy eases anxiety by lowering blood pressure and releasing “feel good” endorphins. At this time of year when our animal shelters are over-flowing with cats and kittens, there has never been a better time to adopt a feline therapist and let a cat heal your heart.

Colorado Animal Rescue, Inc. joins The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) in declaring June Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month. Corporate sponsor Fresh Step Scoopable cat litter and national cyber-shelter support the month-long celebration. Together, we have created special offers for anyone interested in making a commitment to put their peace of mind in the paws of a cat.

Colorado Animal Rescue invites the citizens of the Roaring Fork Valley to partake in some relaxation therapy by stopping by the shelter to meet our available feline therapist and celebrating Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month with us.

Thanks to your loyal support for our shelter, in the last two years we have taken in and cared for over 900 homeless dogs and cats. During the month of June we hope to adopt out our long-term residents that have been patiently waiting for a new permanent and loving home. Come visit the shelter; we are open Monday thru Saturday 10 to 4 and Sunday 12 to 4. Adopt an adult cat during the month of June and save $10 on the adoption fee.

Let a cat heal your heart!
