The following are past supported charities, in which we assist and donate to, depending on available funds and needs. We provide food donations and invite shelter animals from these agencies to shows in the hopes of finding new homes for them. Visit their websites to learn more about these agencies.

TCRAS (Teller County Rescue and Animal Shelter) http://www.tcras.org.  TCRAS is a no-kill County animal shelter that does great work for stray and lost animals in Teller County. We are beginning our work with TCRAS by making blankets, hammocks, and curtains for the cattery. We also hosted a pet food drive in October 2018, in which we collected donated food from the wonderful people of Highland Lakes, of Divide, CO. We plan on having TCRAS adoptable pets at our hosted shows. A portion of profits from shows will be given to TCRAS.

Southern Colorado Spay/Neuter/Rescue, located in Pueblo, CO. https://www.socospay.com/ and Happy Cat Haven, located in Manitou Springs, CO. https://happycatshaven.org/ were both recipients of a monetary donation from Garden of the Cats, and supplies collected in a donation program at the Kitty Prom 2022.

Angels with Paws, located in Lakewood, CO. https://www.angelswithpaws.net/ was the recipient of all the supply donations collected at the Furry Tails 2023 and a monetary donation from Garden of the Cats.

Wild Blue Cats, located in Colorado Springs, CO. https://www.wbcats.org/, was the recipient of all supply donations collected at Rocky Mountain High Cat Show 2024, and a monetary donation from Garden of the Cats. They were also at the show with adoptable cats.

Garden of the Cats continues to work hand in hand with local shelters and rescues at our public shows, offering space to meet with the public, collecting supply donations, and offering monetary donations from proceeds acquired from our events.

Mary Rish, Kathy Campbell, and Catherine Rudy spent days making blankets, curtains, and hammocks for the shelter pets of Teller County Regional Animal Shelter. They delivered eighteen blanket, twenty-two curtains, and twenty-two hammocks to TCRAS on October 29, 2018. They will continue to make blankets for TCRAS, since these blankets go home with the pets when they are adopted.
