Welcome to Safe Place For Pets


Meet Eric: Eric is a “ruggedly handsome” cat with a very charming personality! This 10-year-old fellow is neutered, has claws, and weighs just over 11 pounds. In his former home, Eric was an indoor/outdoor cat, who enjoyed spending his outdoor time with the feral cat colony living in his backyard (which his former dad supported and managed under the HSPPR Trap/Neuter/Release program). Eric enjoys lots of people attention and likes to talk to you to find out how your day has been going and then he proceeds to tell you about his day. And he is not at all bashful about asking for multiple servings of kitty treats for a snack! Eric is looking forward to meeting you and finding his new forever home, so please do visit him soon!

Visit our available pets.


To make an appointment to visit our cats at the Welcome Center - 1141 Manitou Ave, Manitou Springs, CO 80929, call (719) 359-0201, currently open by appointment only.
