Fearless Kitty Rescue
Fearless Kitty Rescue is a local rescue organization dedicated to finding homeless and abandoned cats of all ages their forever home. With the help of committed volunteers, they have been able to find homes for hundreds of kittens and cats. Fearless works closely with El Dorado Animal Hospital to make sure that the kittens and cats up for adoption are up to date on all vaccines, have been spayed or neutered and are healthy.
Fearless Kitty Rescue’s “tail” that further describes the inspiration and dedication behind the rescue:
--As the saying goes, “It takes a village.” This is certainly the case when it comes to saving the lives of cats and kittens from the elements, unfortunate situations, and high-kill and often forgotten shelters in Arizona.
Fearless Kitty Rescue was founded on the belief that all cats and kittens deserve a chance to be…FEARLESS. Prior to becoming a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Fearless Kitty Rescue was a dream. Its founders, Paula Hatch, Sandra Schiavone and Kim Kamins, traveled different paths, but their volunteer work brought them together in September 2011, when they met while volunteering for another cat rescue group. Their passion and combined talents soon had them ensuring the successful running of that group, helping its director find great homes for the cats.
After a year, they found themselves at a crossroads: the director of the group wanted to return to doing TNR (trap/neuter/release), while Paula, Sandra and Kim found that they had found their true passion, to best serve the community through rescue and adoption of kitties in need. Their dream soon became a reality. Knowing it would be a daunting task to build an organization from the ground up; these dedicated women combined their skills and accepted the tough challenge of saving cats and kittens. With determination and caring, they resolved to be fearless. As a result, Fearless Kitty Rescue was officially born in August 2012, became a recognized non-profit organization in September 2012, and opened their free-roaming adoption center that same month.
Needing a logo that clearly matched the desire to champion cats and kittens, the picture of one little kitten stood out. With her chin held high, little Karma became the inspiration behind Fearless Kitty’s logo. Happily adopted into her loving, forever home, Karma continues to inspire Fearless Kitty’s mission.
Today, Fearless Kitty Rescue has adoption centers at Petco locations in Fountain Hills and the Scottsdale Pavilions. The hub of activity is the free-roaming adoption center affectionately known as Kittyville. Here, cats begin the transition to their new lives through socialization and living in a “home” environment, while kittens are kept in loving foster homes. For owner surrendered cats and kittens, those pets would otherwise go to high-kill shelters, this environment is a soothing transition. For strays and abandoned pets that are often found wandering the desert in excruciating heat, Kittyville is an oasis.
As a 501(c)(3), Fearless Kitty Rescue relies solely on donations and the generous time of its volunteers. Fearless Kitty Rescue is an entirely volunteer organization with all donations used to meet the needs of loving, future companions. At Fearless Kitty Rescue, “It is all about the kitties!”--
You can visit their website at FearlessKittyRescue.org. All of the cats up for adoption have their photo and mini bio posted online. You can also contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more questions or if you would like to make a donation.
AZ RESCUE is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving dogs and cats from the euthanasia list and placing them in their forever homes. Our receptionist, Calli, works very closely with this rescue.
Since 1995, RESCUE has saved over 11,000 pets and placed them into loving homes. Many of the Rescue dogs and cats are in foster homes. If not, the dogs are kept at a doggie day care so they can run and play and avoid being in cages all day. The cats have a special facility that houses all of them without having to be confined to cages.
RESCUE offers a virtual kennel with photos and information from volunteers who have spent time with the animals. There is a strict adoption process that requires an online application, phone interview and in-person interview. But due to the strict process, RESCUE has a 10 percent return rate, which is very low compared to the 60 percent return rate most shelters face. The main promise is that this will be the animal’s last, forever home.
RESCUE is always looking for donations and volunteers who are dedicated to spending time with the animals. If you would like more information, please visit AZRescue.org.
We are proud to be AAHA accredited!
