Recycling at IMHS

Thank you to all of the kind people in this community that have donated their aluminum cans to benefit our animals here at the shelter. All of the cans have been turned in for money and we received almost $300 for the volume that was brought down to Iron and Metal Inc. off of Franklin Street in Denver. I have to shout out a big thank you to Tap Sittiseri for giving us a much better price per pound because we are a non-profit and I think he has a soft spot for animals. All of the workers at the scrap yard were very helpful with unloading and Raymond was patient with the newbie that brought the three loads down. The ladies in the office were wonderful and it was a very pleasant experience. We

August Volunteers of the Month

August's honorees for Volunteer of the Month actually goes to a family: the Glenn family. This amazing team of cat and kitty fosters apparently don't like to sleep as for years now they've been doing newborn kittens and bottle feedings around the clock. While cat overpopulation is finally getting better in Colorado, you might not know it by the hours the Glenn's put in. Jennie is their fearless leader and mom but all of the girls help: Dalton 14, Daisy 11, and Lulu 8, so all of the girls got tickets to the Alamo Movie Drafthouse Theatre in Littleton. Also of note: Alamo Movie Drafthouse has been sponsoring our volunteer recognition program for all of 2016. We are seeking other sponsors of th
