Areas SOS Kitty Serves

Maricopa County but we focus on Scottsdale, Tempe and Mesa rescues and Old Town Scottsdale TNRs. [Arizona]
We have placements as far as Escondido, CA; Tucson, AZ; Payson, AZ; Flagstaff, AZ; and one about to relocate to Orlando, FL. One is now in Montana and one in Shanghai (watches through high window).

SOS Kitty's Adoption Process

Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $75 and $120 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements.
We accept other donations, but are not yet an independent 501c3. Our minimum veterinary costs at this time are over $100.kitten. Adults minimum $74. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+.
We love PetSmart or PetCo gift cards!
We feed ProPlan Chicken & Rice Adult to almost all cats (always available) and Fancy Feast wet food twice a day
with some Trader Joe's Tuna for Cats. Wet food is as a check on health issues as well as added moisture in diet and treat.
Kittens start with Royal Canon Babycat until ProPlan Kitten kibbles.
Senior cats get Science Diet's 11+ dry food.
Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered.
We do not adopt out unaltered animals.
We do foster/adopt with kittens when experienced adopters want younger kittens and are willing to work with us to complete their two distemper vaccinations and spay or neuter. We do not neuter before three months old, or spay/neuter before 3 pounds unless unusually small and healthy.
As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more adult cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions.
We adopt to indoor-only situations.
We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat.
We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first. Similar police issues.
We work to assist Safe Haven for Animals, Inc., in placing their cats and showing at sites they cannot cover.
Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes.
We usually take cats/kittens to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where we can show cats/kittens by appointment, We show cats & kittens every Thursday at Trendy Pet & Rescue in Scottsdale Fashion Square. We show cats at Choice (Shea & 71st Streets) three Sundays a month with first Sunday of month off.
We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee. Ditto kittens but usually no refund. We want each of our rescues to be in permanent, loving homes.

About SOS Kitty

I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so chose to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.

I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Come Meet SOS Kitty's Pets

By appointment. Working on adoption events.

Trendy Pet & Rescue @ Scottsdale Fashion Square Thursdays 11-3; Choice Pet Market all but first Sundays 11-3.

Two foster homes in north Scottsdale have offered to show SOS Kitty cats and kittens for potential adoption by appointment. Doggy day care fosters kittens and can sometimes host meetings.
