CITIZENS FOR NORTH PHOENIX STRAYS
If you have a pet cat or pet dog that you want to get spayed or neutered – This will help you.
If you found a tame or feral cat or if you found a dog that, you want to get fixed – This will help you.
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.

“The ‘animal rescue’ world is not a perfect world
But we leave it better than the way we found it”TM

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
Very busy people, please be brief. All they want to know is you are the feeder and you want them back,
Even if it is to get the tames ones adopted out later…you want them back.
*Call The Spay/Neuter Hotline 602-787-4240 or 602-254-7728 *Call Altered Tails 602-943-7729

Trap-Neuter-Release = TNR effectively stabilizes and reduces feral cat populations

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.

If you cannot walk up to it and pick it up, if it runs from you, if you have to trap it…
**PLEASE FOCUS ON TNR** Trap Neuter Release
When you take in a trapped cat (feral, semi feral) and try and tame it down you weaken their structure
and survivability skills making them more susceptible to disease. If the cat does not tame down over time you cannot release it because now it is vulnerable to the outside world and will have trouble surviving.
If you cannot make a 20 yr. commitment to take care of that unadoptable cat, then just TNR
YOU CAN NOT RELOCATE – IT DOESN’T WORK AND THE ANIMAL SUFFERS
You must release in the same place you trapped. Later, if you can walk up and pick it up, adopt it out.

*EMAIL ME FOR ALLERGY INFO – YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PET, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES!*
*EMAIL ME FOR A LIST OF PET FRIENDLY APARTMENTS/HOMES. YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PETS!!*

If you have LOST 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.

Lots of great info https://www.facebook.com/groups/315591408463828/

YOU CANNOT GIVE UP * THAT ANIMALS’ LIFE RELIES ON YOU!
You will need to be PATIENT and work the system. Every adoptable animal WILL GET A HOME!
Summer months are extremely slow but adoptions are not impossible. Adoptions pick up around August.

A pet or stray CAT or kittens or DOG and puppies *need a new home *
DON’T RELY ON ONE ORGANIZATION/PERSON*USE ALL THE RESOURCES GIVEN IN THIS FLYER
Make sure the organization/people helping you with adoption, adopts cats to inside homes only, that they do NOT allow declawing and that they will take back their adopted dogs and cats if the adoption does not work out. You don’t want that animal to end up at the kill shelters.

CATS - How CNPS can help…
If you can foster this cat/kittens then CNPS can help you by posting pictures and story online…
1. The compassionate responsible person that is willing to "help us, help the animal" will be my ‘contact’.
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 to waste money on shots, testing, rabies or leukemia vaccinations, just spay or neuter.
Read pg 3 to decide which program works for you and how to use it. Kittens must be at least 2lb or 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. 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.

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 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

***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 etc. Our worst rescues have been from incompetent rescues.
#2: Please, use your options 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, due to uncaring irresponsible people that dump these poor animals not fixed in the first place! The shelters are tired of euthanizing! Please be the one who does care and use these resources.

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


MAKE A DIFFERENCE * SPAY AND NEUTERTM
Did you know it is cheaper to fix and release ($25) than it is to drop off at the kill shelters ($96)!

Use common sense. Cats must be in a plastic carrier and dogs must be on a leash!
*ALWAYS EAR TIP FERALS AND TAME CATS GOING BACK OUTSIDE*

For free to low cost spay and neuter…
Maricopa County – The Big Fix Program Free Spay/Neuter tame cats only – all dogs

CNPS, WHO WE ARE...
Citizens For North Phoenix Strays is a non-profit 501c3, 100% volunteer, no kill animal rescue organization that has been "Helping People, Help Animals” tm since before 1993.
We are here to share our knowledge, information and resources to help educate and

Whether it be thru low cost spaying and neutering, humane trap-neuter-release, or by giving an animal a second chance thru adoption.

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!!

First and foremost, a pet is a family member for life, not a throw away toy. Besides LOVE…
All a pet cat needs is…an inside home, huge cat condo, cat nip, laser lite, feather toy, quality food.
A dog needs…an inside home, collar with id tags ie: phone/address, halter for walks, leash, quality food.

All of our animals have been vet checked and are spayed and neutered.
*We show our rescued dogs at our adoption events every Saturday/Sunday Petco I-17 Happy Valley
*Almost every Petco and Petsmart have dog and cat adoptions on the weekends. Check them out!
*Also go to http://www.petfinder.com/ and do a search for what you’re looking for

Adopting a new pet / a new family member is a commitment "FOR LIFE.”
If for any reason you do not want or cannot keep an adopted rescue pet and a responsible family member, neighbor or friend is not found, then this life MUST be returned to CNPS or the rescue you adopted from.
We don’t want any animal going to the kill shelters, the Humane Society and the pound.

DON’T DECLAW. IF YOU WANT A DECLAWED CAT, PLEASE ADOPT ONE

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

***Plan ahead for what's going to happen to your animals
if something happens to YOU***Sooo many die at the kill shelters***

*CATS*
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.
IT’S SIMPLE! DON'T LET THE CAT OUT! And you won’t have all those costly vet bills.
Does declawing my cat really hurt him? YES! Mentally and physically. If he gets past the initial pain of healing, as the aching scar tissue builds and he starts to realize that he has lost his defense mechanism he could start to bite you and pee on your things. Now you have ‘ruined’ your cat.
You don’t want him and nobody else will want him. Get a nice big cat tree (bottom of pg 2), throw on some cat nip and trim kitty’s front claws with toenail clippers once a month.
Call me! I will do it for you and show you how. They also love laser lights and feather toys!


BELOW IS A HANDPICKED LIST OF REFERRED TRUSTWORTHY RELIABLE
RESCUE PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS TO “HELP YOU, HELP THE ANIMALS”
These are organizations that screen adopters, adopt to inside only homes
with a no declaw policy for cats that will also take back their returns.
Another BIG *Shout Out* to all you wonderful citizens who cared enough to change that animals life!!!
Thank you for understanding that what we do is all volunteer, we do it because we care. We work full time jobs and will do the very best we can as quickly as we can to help you save that animal =^..^=

Make sure the organization/people helping you with adoption, adopts cats to inside homes only, that they do NOT allow declawing and that they will take back their adopted dogs and cats if the adoption does not work out. You don’t want that animal to end up at the kill shelters.

CATS - How CNPS can help…
If you can foster this cat/kittens then CNPS can help you by posting pictures and story online…
1. The compassionate responsible person that is willing to "help us, help the animal" will be my ‘contact’.
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 to waste money on shots, testing, rabies or leukemia vaccinations, just spay or neuter.
Read pg 3 to decide which program works for you and how to use it. Kittens must be at least 2lb or 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. 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.

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 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

***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 etc. Our worst rescues have been from incompetent rescues.
#2: Please, use your options 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, due to uncaring irresponsible people that dump these poor animals not fixed in the first place! The shelters are tired of euthanizing! Please be the one who does care and use these resources.

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


MAKE A DIFFERENCE * SPAY AND NEUTERTM
Did you know it is cheaper to fix and release ($25) than it is to drop off at the kill shelters ($96)!

Use common sense. Cats must be in a plastic carrier and dogs must be on a leash!
*ALWAYS EAR TIP FERALS AND TAME CATS GOING BACK OUTSIDE*

CNPS, WHO WE ARE...
Citizens For North Phoenix Strays is a non-profit 501c3, 100% volunteer, no kill animal rescue organization that has been "Helping People, Help Animals” tm since before 1993.
We are here to share our knowledge, information and resources to help educate and
facilitate efforts so more people are able to come to the aid and welfare of the animals. CNPS will help facilitate, encourage, assist, and support anybody, anywhere that needs help saving an animal.
Whether it be thru low cost spaying and neutering, humane trap-neuter-release, or by giving an animal a second chance thru adoption.

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!!

First and foremost, a pet is a family member for life, not a throw away toy. Besides LOVE…
All a pet cat needs is…an inside home, huge cat condo, cat nip, laser lite, feather toy, quality food.
A dog needs…an inside home, collar with id tags ie: phone/address, halter for walks, leash, quality food.

ADOPTING A NEW FAMILY MEMBER…
*Some of our dogs and cats available are posted at http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter74255-pets.html
We are available for a meet and greet 7 days a week, just give us a call or text
Cats - Toni 602 332 6615 badkittyts@aol.com Dogs - Noemi 602 689 2157
http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/cnps.html www.facebook.com/CitizensForNorthPhoenixStrays
All of our animals have been vet checked and are spayed and neutered.
*We show our rescued dogs at our adoption events every Saturday/Sunday Petco I-17 Happy Valley
*Almost every Petco and Petsmart have dog and cat adoptions on the weekends. Check them out!
*Also go to http://www.petfinder.com/ and do a search for what you’re looking for

Adopting a new pet / a new family member is a commitment "FOR LIFE.”
If for any reason you do not want or cannot keep an adopted rescue pet and a responsible family member, neighbor or friend is not found, then this life MUST be returned to CNPS or the rescue you adopted from.
We don’t want any animal going to the kill shelters, the Humane Society and the pound.

DON’T DECLAW. IF YOU WANT A DECLAWED CAT, PLEASE ADOPT ONE

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

***Plan ahead for what's going to happen to your animals
if something happens to YOU***Sooo many die at the kill shelters***

*CATS*
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.
IT’S SIMPLE! DON'T LET THE CAT OUT! And you won’t have all those costly vet bills.
Does declawing my cat really hurt him? YES! Mentally and physically. If he gets past the initial pain of healing, as the aching scar tissue builds and he starts to realize that he has lost his defense mechanism he could start to bite you and pee on your things. Now you have ‘ruined’ your cat.
You don’t want him and nobody else will want him. Get a nice big cat tree (bottom of pg 2), throw on some cat nip and trim kitty’s front claws with toenail clippers once a month.
Call me! I will do it for you and show you how. They also love laser lights and feather toys!


BELOW IS A HANDPICKED LIST OF REFERRED TRUSTWORTHY RELIABLE
RESCUE PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS TO “HELP YOU, HELP THE ANIMALS”
These are organizations that screen adopters, adopt to inside only homes
with a no declaw policy for cats that will also take back their returns.
Another BIG *Shout Out* to all you wonderful citizens who cared enough to change that animals life!!!
Thank you for understanding that what we do is all volunteer, we do it because we care. We work full time jobs and will do the very best we can as quickly as we can to help you save that animal =^..^=

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
