In 2012, Alice, with her feline sister Missy (both adopted from CAT), accompanied Judy and George on a cross-country trip with a not so happy ending. Alice got lost in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Even after coming home to Portland, George did not give up on finding Alice.
On May 9, the Colorado Animal Rescue called and said a kindly gentleman had found Alice. She arrived home (via a plane trip) on May 15. Thanks to the microchip, Alice was reunited with the family who loved and missed her terribly. Read more. CAT microchips all our shelter cats prior to adoption.

CAT is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary and the over 30,000 adoptions we’ve been privileged to be part of.
