donate to the Arizona Humane Society! 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.
IF IT IS COLD OUTSIDE - Please keep your pets inside, provide warmth and shelter for ferals and strays; and BANG ON THE HOOD OF YOUR CAR BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE if you have feral cats in your area;
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

She left us too young and is sorely missed in the sanctuary.
