IT'S HOT!!  PROTECT YOUR PETS IN THE SUMMER.
  
  • Please leave pets at home - do not leave your dog in a parked car.  70 degrees turns to 90 quickly and over that will kill your pet.
  • Do not leave them in a running car & risk your vehicle being stolen with your pet inside!!! 
  • If you can't keep them with you where you are going,
  • just leave them at home or with a friend please!!
  • Walking your dog - If you can't walk barefoot on the hot surface, don't make your dog walk on it!!!  More info:  http://aldf.org/cases-campaigns/action-alerts/dogs-in-hot-cars/overview-of-state-laws-leaving-unattended-animals-in-vehicles/
  • Proposed law - Arizona: HB 2494 provides civil immunity for persons who rescue a domestic animal from a locked and unattended vehicle after notifying law nforcement; currently a law enforcement officer can smash car windows to save an animal. 
  • I would do it myself anyway - would you?  
 
DONATIONS NEEDED to care for the many kitties in our sanctuary specifically need dental surgeries for 2 cats - 1 major, both urgent.

 
HOMES/FOSTERS NEEDED
Please see our "Animals for Adoption" page for animals needing homes.
FOSTERS NEEDED for kittens born to feral moms, to socialize & become adoptable.
************************
**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.  NOW is a good time before un-neutered cats start breeding again!  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.

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.

*DO NOT TURN IN PETS (yours or found), STRAY CATS OR KITTENS TO A COUNTY SHELTER OR THE ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY (not a no-kill shelter).  
Please contact us or a no-kill rescue group (see Resource Page) for help.

*****************************************************

Kind to Nature (KTN) is a non-profit organization 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 sickeness 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 on how the products we use and how to make a donation.

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

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, less than 50% ever get out alive and most pet surrenders are euthanized immediately!!!
