Seasonal Alerts and Reminders
Please no baby chicks, ducklings or bunnies for Easter!
It's baby season - birds and animals are mating, nesting
and having babies - what to be on the alert for.
See our Seasonal Reminders page for more details
In particular - street cats will start having kittens
soon - adding to the current overpopulation crisis.
See our Feral Cat page for details on what to do
if you find kittens - BE CAREFUL! Spaying female
strays and ferals is important, but be SURE they
are not nursing baby kittens before removing them.
Please see our SEASONAL REMINDERS page for more information.
We are still in the midst of a pet-overpopulation crisis -- please do not turn in your pets or found pets to the county or Humane Society -- more than 50% of adoptable animals are now being euthanized. Contact a no-kill rescue group or make every effort to find a new home for the pet. Thank you.
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 --unfortunately the PayPal button is currently malfunctioning. Please send checks to our PO box or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a link to donate through PayPal if that is more convenient.
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 assist others 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!!!
