If you are looking for help in finding a new home for a pet or stray, dog or cat – This will help you.
If you feed strays YOU MUST ALSO SPAY AND NEUTER or all you are doing is breeding cats to die.
If you expect someone to do everything for you, if you do not intend to follow thru, if you do not have a vehicle, friends or family to ‘help you, help us’, then nobody or nothing will be able to save that animal’s life. After reading this flyer you will have no excuse not to make a difference

If you have LOST OR FOUND an animal
POST SIGNS IMMEDIATELY, EVERYWHERE!! Go to Facebook LOST PETS IN ARIZONA, Craigslist.
Leave food out front and back. Put out clothing with your smell. Tell neighbors to check bushes and sheds.

For stray cats and feral/wild cats - these cats DO NOT have to die!!
If you are feeding stray or feral cats, help is available to get them spayed and neutered!
Trap-Neuter-Release is the most humane and effective method of stabilizing free-roaming cat populations.
*Call Pam 602-717-2287 or Susie 602-689-6069 at Az Feral Cats
*Call The Spay/Neuter Hotline 602-787-4240 *Call Altered Tails 602-943-7729
SPAY AND NEUTER THOSE STRAYS NOW BEFORE THEY START BREEDING!
With Az weather cats go into heat 4x a yr v/s 1x yr. 1 stray will produce 27 new strays that will reproduce.
Don’t be angry with stray cats… They are here because cruel irresponsible people threw them away.

*EMAIL ME FOR A LIST OF PET FRIENDLY APARTMENTS/HOMES. YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PETS!!*

We can help you find a new home for a pet or stray
First of all, we are not a shelter; we do not “take them in”. ***DON’T STOP, PLEASE READ ON***
If we took in every animal that we get called with everyday, all of our money would be spent on a ‘building’, housing animals instead of spaying and neutering and making a difference.
This ‘building’ would become a kill shelter and we would have to kill to make room for more
Or this ‘building’ would become a no kill shelter, we would always be full and wouldn’t be able to help you.
We never have to say no! We will help everybody who is willing to ‘help us, help the animals’!

*EMAIL ME FOR ALLERGY INFO – YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PET, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES!*

A pet or stray CAT or kittens or DOG and puppies need a new home

CATS - How CNPS can help…
1 The compassionate responsible person that is willing to "help us, help the animal" will be my ‘contact’.
Do not call for a friend of a friend.
2 Every adoptable animal will always get adopted. Be patient, I am doing everything in my power to help.
3 My ‘contact’ would bring the animal into a temporary safe inside environment, bathroom/bedroom if poss.
We are not asking you to stress your pets out by mixing them with animals you are trying to help.
4 Our only requirement is that the cat/kitten be spayed or neutered, and must be, before they can be listed.
You do not need shots, nor testing, nor rabies nor leukemia vaccinations, just spay or neuter.
Read page 3 to decide which program works for you and how to use it. Kittens must be at least 2lb /10 wks
5 Email me 5 good clear cute inside photos ie sitting, laying, playing, full body, face. Tell me everything you would want a new owner to know. What does he do that is cute, fav toy, lap cat, ect. Be brief but thorough. Attached is a sample pic story. I need that kind of info in that same format for a quick listing.
I will get the animal listed online and get him in line for the adoption center.
6 The animal is online and in line to go to the adoption center. Email info to Toni at badkittyts@aol.com
DOGS - How CNPS can help…
If you can foster this small dog then CNPS can help you. Call Noemi 602 689 2157
She will help facilitate getting this small dog ready for adoption ie spayed/neutered, shots, micro chipped.
CNPS will list the animal online and schedule the dog to participate at our adoption events every Sat and Sun at Petco at I17 and Happy Valley Road SE corner.

You will not “get stuck” with this animal. *Many get adopted from online and never make it to the center

MORE HELP FOR CATS AND DOGS
Don’t sit and wait for ‘somebody else’ to come through. Get that animal’s info and pics out to many rescues
I can network your plea for help Email me a good pic of the animal ON the email not attached, a sentence about the situation and ON the mail I need your phone and email address. badkittyts@aol.com
Every Petco, Petsmart and most pet food stores have at least one organization adopting out animals. Call and get the phone numbers to these organizations to see how they can help. Remember to let them know that you will “help them, help the animal”, that you will foster the animal and bring it to adoptions.
Petfinder and Adopt A Pet Go to these websites and do a search for ”cats or dogs” in your zip code. It will pull up animals for adoption and their organizations. Call or email to see how they can help you.
CATS – If these options are impossible at least take the next best minimal action by fixing and releasing.
This allows the stray, freedom to take care of itself without the overwhelming burdens of reproducing.
If you do nothing the animal will still be where it is at, but unfixed and breeding. That’s a cruel, cruel life.
Please don’t just walk off and ignore that animal. Nobody else but you is going to do anything about it.
DOGS – If the dog is fixed and you need help with adoptions contact Jeff with RNA=Rescue Network AZ
He can help facilitate getting the dog up for adoption and adopted out 480 766 2397 pg3 spaying/neutering
DOGS - If you can pick out any distinct breeds in the dog your trying to help, contact C.A.B.R.A. = Coalition of All Breeds Rescue 480-874-2511 or http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/AZ79.html scroll all the way down.If you think he has any Shepherd, call Shepherd rescue and say you have a Shepherd (NOT a MIX) that needs help. If you think he also has any Lab, then call Lab rescue and say you have a Lab (NOT a MIX). Let THEM decide if he is a purebred. If you’re not sure of what the animal is, send me a picture.
Please Do Not Use Online Classifieds i.e.: Craigslist, to give away animals!
Use a reputable rescue organization to find a safe and permanent home, CNPS 602-332-6615
Only the kill shelters can help dumpers - a person who dumps the problem onto someone else.

YOU CANNOT GIVE UP. THAT ANIMALS LIFE RELIES ON YOU!

YOUR LAST OPTION…Death is not the absolute worst thing these animals have to look forward to, we are all going to die…it’s HOW they die that’s important. If you have no choice but to have an animal euthanized because he is too old, aggressive, has medical issues or whatever, go to a veterinarian and have it done the right way. Don’t let him die at the Humane Society or the Pound! They have to euthanize hundreds of animals a day because of irresponsible dumpers. Give that animal what it deserves, and that is, a non-threatening, quiet environment surrounded by love. Let that stray or unwanted pet be put to sleep peacefully, held by you or while being petted and not in total fear the last few minutes of his life. It’s very important to have the pre-anesthetic shot done first. For questions call Toni 602-332-6615

***WARNING***
#1: Be sure you know who you are working with ie Do they follow-up, do they take returns, are dogs/cats adopted to indoors only, NO declawing ect. Our worst rescues have been from other rescues.
#2: Please use your options above versus taking that animal to a kill shelter. The kill shelter, The Humane Society and The Pound have to kill to make room for more that are guaranteed to be dumped that day. It is NOT their fault, it’s the irresponsible people who don’t care that dump these poor animals not fixed in the first place! The shelters are tired of killing! Please be the one who does care and use the above resources.

**SAVE A MILLION LIVES, BY JUST SPAYING ONE**

ADOPTING A NEW FAMILY MEMBER…
All of our dogs and cats are posted at http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter74255-pets.html
We are available for meet and greets 7 days a week, just give us a call Toni 602 332 6615
We also show our homeless dogs and cats at our adoption events every Saturday and Sunday
at Petco I17 and Happy Valley SE corner from 11-4.

The adoption fee for cats/kittens is $75.00 and 6+ are 60.00 and includes
vet exam, spaying or neutering and inside shots (3-in-1) FOR LIFE.
Kittys must go home in a plastic pet carrier, no cardboard boxes or laundry baskets!

The adoption fee for dogs/puppies varies and includes vet exam, spaying/neutering, microchip, shots. To take your new dog home you will need a leash, collar, halter, id tag with ph#s & address.
We accept cash, check, charge

When you adopt your new pet, we want you to commit to your new family member "FOR LIFE".
But if for any reason you or family are unable to keep your pet, it MUST be returned to CNPS.
Our animals don’t belong at the kill shelter. It’s not their responsibility and they are tired of killing!!

Due to sick and cruel people poisoning, trapping and dumping in the desert, shooting with guns and arrows, letting dogs loose to roam and kill and due to hungry coyotes and owls and hawks…
THE AVERAGE LIFESPAN OF AN OWNED INSIDE/OUTSIDE PET CAT IS 18 MONTHS
THE AVERAGE LIFESPAN OF AN OWNED INSIDE ONLY PET CAT IS 18 YEARS! That’s a fact!!

Rabies and Leukemia shots can cause onsite tumors CANCER! That is why the vet will do those shots in the leg. So they can cut the leg off! Cats can only get rabies and leuk from being outside.
When you let your pet cat “out back” with you they roll in the dirt and contract microscopic body mites and parasites, then you bring them back inside and they shake on your bed, sofa or carpet. Walking a cat on a leash gets him used to going and wanting to go outside. DON'T LET THE CAT OUT!
Does declawing my cat really hurt him? YES! Mentally and physically. After he gets past the initial pain of healing and time goes by, he will realize that he has lost his defense mechanism and could start to bite and pee on things. Now you have ‘ruined’ your cat. You don’t want him and nobody else will want him. Get a nice big cat tree, cat nip, trim kittys claws with toenail clippers once a mo.
Don’t declaw, if you want a declawed cat, Please adopt one!

Email me for info on, allergies, stressed cats marking, special cleaner, lost pets, dog doors aquatics and pool safety, older pets, help with pet food and housing and PTS.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
