UPDATE 4:40 P.M. OCT. 8:

A Humane Society spokesperson tells the Indy that eight of the cats that went up for adoption on Oct. 4 have already been adopted. Since then, more have become available.

As of Oct. 8, there were 11 cats from the Steel City Alley Cats Coalition available for adoption at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. Five cats that were rescued have been reunited with their families, spokesperson Gretchen Pressley says.

The Humane Society will also have "quite a few" barn cats from the Steel City rescue coming up or adoption within the next week or two, Pressley adds.

"Most of them would prefer to do their job and love you from a distance," she says of the barn cats. "They're not super, super social kitties."


Several cats rescued last month from the Steel City Alley Cats Coalition in Pueblo are ready to be adopted, the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region announced Oct. 4. 

Following reports of unsafe conditions and inadequate medical care, Humane Society staff worked with Animal Law Enforcement in early September to transfer more than 100 cats from Pueblo to the Humane Society’s facilities in Colorado Springs.

Most of the cats had ringworm infections, HSPPR said in mid-September. The nine cats now ready for adoption, each around six months old, weren’t infected or had minor infections that have since cleared up.

The other rescued cats are still in quarantine receiving treatment, according to a statement from the Humane Society.
