OUTRAGED, DISGUSTED AND VERY SADDENED ABOUT THE KILLING OF CECIL THE LION in Zimbabwe, in the name of “sport.”   We fully support all efforts by the US and African nations to end the atrocities being done to wild animals through trophy hunting and poaching, and urge severe punishment to Cecil’s killer, hopefully setting an example to others.

**Please visit our Animals for Adoption Page Now and help us save lives.***
We are currently urgently seeking permanent or foster homes for 4 older kittens whose rescuer can no longer keep due to renter restrictions.

    If it's too hot for your barefeet, DON'T make your dog walk on it! 
Walk dogs early morning, evening and non-pavement surfaces if possible.
DO NOT Leave Pets in the car -
70 degrees outside is over 100 inside and will kill your pet in a matter of minutes even with some opening. ARIZONA - Call police right away if you see pets left in the car.  YES, you can break the windows to save them if necessary!
IF YOU FIND KITTENS WITHOUT A MOTHER -- They might not be orphaned (mom could just be hunting for food).  Use caution before disturbing them unless they are in obvious danger/at risk.  More information and instructions can be found on our Seasonal Reminders and Feral Cat pages.

OR THE ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY (not a no-kill shelter).  Please contact us or a no-kill rescue group (see Resource Page) for help.  Click on SPECIAL ALERTS button for more info.



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 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!!!
