Home Adoption Info Surrender Cat/Kitten

SURRENDER Cat or Kitten INQUIRY:

We do not have a shelter and the only foster homes we have are rescuers/guardians like yourself who have been willing to foster until the strays or pets they need to re-home are adopted. Therefore, we are unable to take surrendered animals, but can help in the following ways.

Please FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW:

  1. WE WILL POST THE PET ON THE ADOPTION PORTAL/ASSIST WITH ADOPTIONS: Email a photo and information about the animal(s) needing to be re-homed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We will post this information on to the adoption portal so that people looking on Petfinder and similar sights will see your animal. Make your text honest, but compelling by emphasizing the good qualities Include your best photos, pet details (include age, gender and personality details and your desired contact information. We can also screen applicants and help with adoption details once an approved adoptor is found. This can and does lead to adoptions everyday!

  2. WE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF NO-KILL RESCUES: You will need to download a comprehensive list of No-Kill Shelters from our website. Once you open the list, if you select the arrow alongside the rescue, it should take you to the rescue's website. We recommend sending an email request along with the same great photo's and compelling background, to make your request stand out among others.

    You may need to contact rescues more than once in order to find help. We encourage you not to give up, as a rescue may have no room one day, and have space the next day or week, depending on adoptions.

    Ask each rescue to post your pet, and also if you can be put on a waiting list. If you are willing to temporarily foster, you may have much better luck at finding the needed help. Offering to make a donation can also make a difference since many rescues, such as ours, are not funded, but rely on the donations of the public.

  3. WE INFORM YOU OF THE ALTERNATIVE:
    If you are considering taking your pet to Animal Control, WATCH THIS VIDEO: 6 AM Cats . Every day 125 pets are euthanized in Maricopa County alone due to overpopulation and not because they are ill. We would hate to have one of them be yours and I am sure you don't think they deserve it or you wouldn't be asking for help. We appreciate your willingness to be an advocate for the kittens/cats in your possession. They are truly at the mercy of humankind, and going the extra step can be all that is needed to make a remarkable difference in the lives of many kittens and cats. Thank you for not doing the "easy" thing, and choosing to do the "right" thing.

  4. WE WILL REFER YOU TO FREE SPAY/NUETER RESOURCES (REQUIRED PRIOR TO ADOPTION):

  5. REMEMBER TO NOTIFY US ONCE YOU PETS HAVE NEW HOMES, SO THAT WE CAN TAKE YOUR PETS OFF THE ADOPTION PORTAL.
    Please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it once new homes have been found so that we can remove them from the Adoption Portal. Remember, patience is the key. It could take a few weeks or a few months. In the case of one owners pet, it took exactly a year, but he is happily living in a new home and the family feels very good about the decision they made to honor their commitment to this animal by finding a temporary situation (sometimes a friend we never thought to ask can temporarily help, the pet can live in one room of a house which is better than dying at the shelter, etc) to be able to hold on to the pet until a new "forever" home could be found.

  6. FOSTERING
