Lakewood, CO (September 19, 2023) — Cat Care Society (CCS), a non-profit cat shelter that provides adoption services and medical care for cats in the Denver metro area, is proud to announce that its strong financial health and ongoing accountability and transparency has earned a Four-Star Rating and 96% from Charity Navigator.

This rating designates Cat Care Society as an official “Give with Confidence” charity, indicating that our organization is using its donations effectively based on Charity Navigator’s criteria. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. Since 2001, the organization has been an unbiased and trusted source of information for more than 11 million donors annually.

Charity Navigator analyzes non-profit performance based on four key indicators, referred to as beacons. Currently, non-profits can earn scores for the Impact & Results, Accountability & Finance, Culture & Community, and Leadership & Adaptability beacons.

“Our new rating is further validation that our donors can trust our commitment to good governance and financial health,” EC Michaels, Cat Care Society’s executive director said. “We hope that this confidence will introduce our work to new supporters who can help us advance our mission and new strategic plan to improve the quality of life for cats in need in our community.”

“We are delighted to provide Cat Care Society with third-party accreditation that validates their operational excellence,” said Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. “The Four-Star Rating is the highest possible rating an organization can achieve.
