Located in the foothills of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, Fort Collins is home to our FOSTER-BASED non-profit organization that rescues and provides medical and social care for kittens and cats. We then find them a loving family and ensure they are the perfect match.

Our focus is to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and socialize kittens and cats in foster homes that we rescue from a variety of at-risk situations such as strays, kill shelters, and overcrowded homes. 

Through a team of veterinary professionals and an in-home foster program, we assess their individual needs to be certain that they are ready to meet their forever homes.

We recently partnered with NoCo Cat Cafe in Loveland where some of our kitties will be up for adoption! Check them out at



Born and raised in Wisconsin, Arika moved to Fort Collins in 2009 and has no plans of leaving! She was taught how to love and care for animals of all kinds by her mother, Shelly.

Arika graduated in 2013  from FRCC with a Veterinary Technician degree and has clinical experience, which is very beneficial when rescuing cats! After being involved with Colorado Kitty Coalition since 2014 as a foster, she finally took over the rescue's entirety in 2018 when the founder retired. Since then, the rescue has grown significantly in number of adoptions annually!

When she isn't rescuing kittens, Arika works full time at a Property Management company (unfortunately cat rescue doesn't pay the bills!). In her free-time, she is hiking, watching horrible reality TV, or spending time with her husband, dog Etta, and their 3 cats Mac, Phoebe, & Delilah. 





Fostering is directly correlated with SAVING LIVES. How cool would it be to say that YOU helped save a kitten or a cat's life? When you foster, you take a homeless animal into your home and provide him or her with love, care, and attention until the cat is adopted. 

We rescue a lot of kittens and cats who are in danger from kill-shelters or living on the streets. Even if you only foster one animal, one time, you have made a difference.

Review our foster guidelines, fill out a foster application, or contact us with questions.
