Help reduce pet overpopulation
your pets!

Our Philosophy
All living things deserve respect and a chance to live a normal life.  We believe that since they were either here before us, brought here by us, or attracted to our neighborhoods because of the vegetation we plant, then we have a responsibility to be careful of them and protect them.  We are supposed to be the smart ones, the civilized ones -–they are all just trying to survive and at our mercy. 

and what was done to him and so many other magnificent, beautiful wild animals in the name of "sport."  Please help put an end to trophy hunting and poaching!


DONATIONS URGENTLY NEEDED to care for the many kitties in our Sanctuary for unadoptable animals (mostly cats) - specifically need dental surgeries for 3 cats and other medical care, furniture, food and supplies -- we have taken in quite a few new PERMANENT residents into the sanctuary just the last few months, as well as to help the many needing assistance in our neighborhoods.


**PLEASE SPAY/NEUTER FERAL OR STRAY CATS YOU ARE FEEDING.  By feeding them, they become your responsibility.  
Spaying and neutering prevents reproduction, over population, becoming a burden to you, tragedy to them and a nuisance to neighbors. 
Contact ADLA's TNR Program for more information at 602-265-7729.  Or visit their website http://www.adlaz.org/group/trap-neuter-return.
Also, please see our Feral Cat page for more info on how to help our street cat friends.

Feral cats and kittens will likely be euthanized.  Please see our Feral Cat page on what to do if you find kittens (or pregnant feral cat). 
Please contact us or a no-kill rescue group (see Resource Page) for help.

ANIMAL CRUELTY IS A CRIME in Arizona  and punishable by jail time!
That includes people who do not provide proper care for their pets and homeowners and landlords threatening to harm feral cats.  If you have a tenant who is taking care of neutered feral cats, they are doing the right thing, the humane thing, and the practice recognized and encouraged by state, local and national authorities, agencies and humane societies everywhere.  When we get reports of neighbors and landlords threatening to kill such cats, we will advise people to notify the authorities immediately. 




What We Do

Kind to Nature (KTN) is a non-profit organization located in Phoenix, Arizona, dedicated to helping and improving the quality of life of the birds and animals that share our urban neighborhoods, be they pets, strays, wild and/or injured birds or other wildlife, with special emphasis on increasing awareness and compassion for feral cats and reducing the pet overpopulation crisis in the Valley

Our primary function is to assist the community with all types of pet/animal issues by providing information, instruction, consulting and referrals to people needing such assistance and specifically identify and assist with feral/street cat issues in our neighborhood. We play an active role in working with the general public and the rescue community in placing animals, facilitating lost and found efforts, saving animals from euthanasia and related matters. 

KTN maintains an indoor sanctuary providing a permanent home for rescued unadoptable cats (and some dogs) taken in on a special case basis. These cats are generally not "pet quality" or have special needs, so they stay with us their entire lives, which means we have to continue to care for them all their lives through sickness and old age.  We do not do adoptions so have limited sources of funds.  PLEASE HELP US TAKE GOOD CARE OF OUR MANY RESIDENTS. DONATIONS ARE MUCH NEEDED AT THIS TIME --please see our Donations page for a list of the products we use and how to make a donation. 

We generally do not take in adoptable animals, although occasionally we do have to find homes for rescued animals, kittens born from rescued strays/feral cats or in assisting others in the community in placing adoptable animals. PLEASE SEE OUR ADOPTION PAGE FOR ANIMALS needing homes at this time. 

Please refer to the Resource Page for a listing of no-kill rescue organizations for help placing an animal and the Feral Cat page for more info on what to do if you find kittens, a stray cat or know of a feral cat situation and need help with TNR! PLEASE DO NOT TURN AN ANIMAL IN TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY OR THE COUNTY SHELTERS - at this time the shelters are over crowded and all animals are at risk of euthanization, particularly of they are old or have any kind of health or behavior issues.  Some are just plain scared and do not act normally in a shelter setting, putting them more at risk.
