Foxes in the Community
Jake the Cat, ambassador of Fort Collins Cat Rescue, now known as Animal Friends Alliance. Jake always pawed the ceremonial first pitch, much to the crowd's delight! Jake may have retired, but the Foxes still host AFA in an annual fund-raising game! For information on Animal Friends Alliance, click on Jake's photo.
