WARNING - We are still in the midst of a pet-overpopulation crisis!
DO NOT TURN IN YOUR PETS OR FOUND PETS TO A COUNTY SHELTER
OR THE ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY (AHS). AHS routinely euthanizes turned in healthy, adoptable pets immediately upon take-in without any chance to be rescued or adopted, due to overcrowding, and more than 50% of rescued animals never come out alive from either. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PLACE A FOUND PET OR A PET YOU CAN'T KEEP WITH A NO-KILL RESCUE GROUP if cannot find a good home for the pet yourself with someone you know. Advice and resources are often available to pet owners facing behavioral or financial problems.
Please consult with us first to see if help is available before you surrender a pet.
NEVER EVER ADVERTISE ON CRAIGSLIST OR OFFER AN ANIMAL "FREE TO GOOD HOME" unless you know that person well. Horrible people are very cunning and have no intention of giving your pet or rescued animal a good home.
DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF LILY –
only 4 years old, pretty, sweet and adoptable.
Her owner turned her in to the AHS for peeing on her carpet
and she was euthanized immediately – no chance to be rescued, much less adopted.
Stay tuned for more info on our campaign to bring awareness of this
practice to the general public – stop donations until they cease doing that.
WE HAVE ANIMALS FOR ADOPTION
Please click on the “Animals for Adoption” button to the left for photos and info.
If you have found Kittens, be careful - just because you find kittens without a mother doesn't mean they don't have one. She could be off hunting for food, and if you catch a female, be sure she is not nursing. You might not have found the whole litter and then mom will move the others where they can't be found.
See our Feral Cat page for more info on what do if you find kittens.
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 feral cats taken in on a special case basis. These cats are generally not "adoptable pet quality," so stay with us their entire lives, which means we have to continue to care for them as they age and develop age-related health problems requiring more medical treatment and special food/handling, etc. PLEASE HELP US MEET THOSE NEEDS. 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!!!
IN LOVING MEMORY OF GINGER --
a beautiful and extraordinary cat.
see Kind to Nature's Facebook page for a tribute to
this special kitty and her beautiful photo. She is also
the signature photo on our "About KTN" page.
She left us too young and is sorely missed in the sanctuary.
