Connect to Care was born of the need to provide more cats with access to the care they deserve. Previously known as Catalyst Connection, this project was designed to begin building the relationship between local veterinarians and new pet owners from the moment they leave the shelter, which connects those owners with resources, expertise, and treatment for the life of their pet. It does this by automatically uploading the digital shelter pet health record into a central portal, which is immediately accessible to both the pet owner and their selected veterinarian. In Metro-Denver, the platform helps support Connect for Care, a member benefit program of the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association, wherein veterinarians provide free care for shelter-related illnesses to new pet owners.
