Hiya! My name’s Amiya and I’m a very special kitty! I came from a pretty bad situation in Arkansas and I’ve been quite scared of cats and other people ever since. Since I’ve come to the shelter, I’ve learned that people aren’t so bad! It takes time to earn my trust, but once you have it, I can be such a character! I’m great at communicating my needs and I love to get pet on my face and under my chin. Hands can still scare me, so it’s good to wait for my permission before petting me. You’ll know the time is right when I flop on my side. I’ll even use my paws to show you where I want to be pet and gently push you away when I’ve had enough. Treats and patience are the fastest way to my heart! I will need to be in a quiet household (preferably without children) as an only pet with experienced cat owners who get me like the Animal Friends Alliance staff! For the right owner, I’d be a great, silly companion! I’ve got a lot of stories to tell and a lot of love to give if you’ll give me the chance to prove it to you.

As always, we’re also proud to share our Pet of the Month, thanks to Animal Friends Alliance. Since 2020, Animal Friends Alliance has provided care, education, and support to our community to create loving, supportive pet owners and pet-to-human relationships. You can learn more about the alliance online, but for now, let’s learn about Howie, our Pet of the Month!
Howie may be a shy, gray kitty, but at just 1 year old, he already knows his favorite spot is cuddled up next to his humans. Howie will run for cover and hide when he hears loud sounds, like outdoor sirens or a noisy TV. This means he will do best in a quiet home! Once he feels comfortable, Howie loves to roll over for belly scratches or rub his nose against other noses. Howie is also a sucker for grooming, leaning his head into the brush so you can get into all the nooks and crannies. When it’s playtime, just drag a shoestring on the ground and watch him chase after it. He even knows how to play fetch! It may take a while for Howie to warm up, and he may choose to be alone sometimes. But once he knows he’s comfortable, Howie will become the perfect lovable companion. You can inquire about Howie and other adoptable pets online at

Xena is a true warrior princess; she is calm, cool, and collected. Although she’s still a puppy, she can pack a punch at playtime and hold her own, but overall, she is rather chill. Xena is mostly potty trained, crate-trained, and in the process of learning basic commands like “sit,” “come,” and “stay.” Xena is excellent with other dogs and curious about cats. She loves to play in the backyard, lay on the patio in the sun, or on the couch while watching a movie. She would be a great addition to any household! She does have a sister available for adoption named Gabrielle.
You can learn more about Xena by calling 970-484-8516 or emailing [email protected]. You can also find other adoptable pets online at

We have seen the ways in which our community has banded together to greater a stronger region for everyone who lives, works, and recreates within Fort Collins. At VanMeveren Law Group, we’re honored to be part of the local effort to create tighter bonds across all members of our community. One such special partnership is the one we share with the Animal Friends Alliance. Founded two years ago this month, the alliance is a joint effort between Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic and Animal House Rescue & Grooming to provide quality shelter care to homeless and in-need animals. Its space is limited to ensure no pet within their facility receives less than the humane, loving treatment they deserve. This mission means there is a huge need to find the right homes for the pets the alliance cares for. So, if you’re looking for a furry friend, you can visit adoptable pets at the alliance’s shelters at 2321 E. Mulberry St., Ste 1 or 2200 N. Taft Hill Rd. (The alliance is also accepting funds to expand one of its shelters. You can donate today or visit them online at to learn more about events that support this cause.) The best part about our partnership with the Animal Friends Alliance? Seeing all these adorable and adoptable pets! This month’s featured pet is no different.

Warning: Mop’s big, sweet eyes will suck you in immediately, but you won’t regret it. This lovable pup is a scruffy Jack Russell terrier mix, weighing in at just 15 pounds. She’s 4 years old and loves to snuggle up next to her family with her favorite squeaky toy. Mop seems to get along with cats, but she really loves playing with dogs around her size! She’s currently receiving a lot of love in a foster home, but she is ready to find her permanent home.

If you would like to learn more about Mop, please call 970-484-8516 or email [email protected]. You can find other adoptable pets at

After a long journey to Fort Collins from southeastern Kansas, Calla Lily is eagerly awaiting her new home. She loves a good scratch on her head and under her chin, and you’re sure to catch her napping sweetly, snuggled up in her favorite blanket. Calla Lily does need to lose some weight and would benefit from regular brushing! She would also need a slow transition to meet pets, but she has lived (and gotten along with) teenage children.
Calla Lily, the Kansas kitty in need of a fresh start and soft blanket to call home, just might be the furry friend for you! Meet her and other lovable pets at the Animal Friends Alliance. Visit to learn more.

Weight: 10.34 lbs
Age: 7Y/2M/3W

Warrior lives up to his name, living a rough life and being found outside with a broken jaw. Even though he was without a home and in pain, Animal Alliance took him in and gave him the surgery and protection he needed. Warrior is a very friendly guy who loves to snuggle and will tell you so with his purrs. His time on his own has led to a tendency to steal food off your plate, but he is getting used to his steady meals with each passing day. Warrior is a joy to be around and can bring a smile to your face with his little pink tongue hanging out!

If you have any questions or would like more information, call the Animal Alliance’s Mulberry Shelter at (970) 484-8516.

Emmett      Emmett

Animal Id: CAFA-A-35819
Breed: Bulldog, American
Sex: Male
Weight: 78.5 lbs
Age: 6Y/9M/0W
Location: Foster Home
Emmett is a sturdy, sweet goofball! He is always happy to see people, but can be loud when he sees other dogs and is selective with his dog buddies. He’s working on his leash manners and is making progress on focusing on the pleasure of just being on a walk. Emmett is currently in foster care, and his foster dad has provided some great feedback:

“Emmett, is a softy at heart. He loves to watch the squirrels and snuggle at any given chance. His size is something that he doesn’t really understand, but his gentle nature makes up for any clumsiness. His core is just a sweet and lovable boy that just wants to be near you. He also loves walks and sniffing everything, his curious nature wants to know who and what has been at every tree in the park. His loyal and loving demeanor is nothing but infectious and if you can get him to smile it will light up your life, I promise.”

Please call 970-224-3647 for more information thank you!

Cat – Domestic Shorthair
Sex : Male
Age : 1Y / 0M / 4W
WEIGHT: 10 lbs
Location: Foster Home
Robert is a lovely young guy who lives for snuggles. When not showering his people with headbutts, he likes to explore, watch the world go by out the window, and sleep in fuzzy blankets – though his favorite spot for nighttime snoozing is at his person’s shoulder with his face pressed against theirs. He considers himself to be a very open-minded young cat and will eat any food put in front of him. He’s also a very curious and talkative guy, and will frequently pause his adventuring to check in and tell you all about it!

Robert does have something called FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. However, he wants you to know that FIV+ cats still live long, happy lives! For more information, please contact the Mulberry shelter at 970-484-8516.

Hi! My name is Butterball! I am a talkative, three-legged boy who came from Wyoming. I love to play with toys, especially a laser pointer. I need a three to four days of being in my new home to be comfortable with everything and show you my love bug side. I would prefer a quiet house where I can play and get lots of snuggles. I give good hugs too! If I sound like I’d be a great fit for your family and home, please call the Animal Friends Alliance shelter at 970-484-8516 to set up an appointment to meet me!

Cat – Domestic Longhair
Sex : Male
Age : 5Y / 10M / 2W
Weight : 10.34 lbs
Hi, my name is Lenny. I’m a quiet, independent guy. I’m more of a solitary fella than a snuggly lap cat, but I don’t mind some nice head scratches. I am sometimes a little scared and hesitant when meeting new people. However, I have been told I’m very nice, non-aggressive, and have great litter box habits. I’m not always interested in toys, but when I do feel like playing, feather toys are my favorite. I do not like other cats, so I need to be in a home where I am the only cat. If I sound like I’d be a great fit for your family and home, please call the Animal Friends Alliance shelter at 970-484-8516 to set up an appointment to meet me!
