I’m a Sweetheart!

Meet Alpha

I was surrendered along with a few other of my litter mates because our owners just couldn’t care for us any longer. We do get along with other dogs, unknown about cats or kids. We are super sweet and loving!

Say hi to Wiley!


Meet Wiley

I am an awesome, awesome dog!! My owners turned me in because the barn cats didn’t like me, but I always got along with them. So for whatever reason, I couldn’t be on the ranch anymore. The family tried me with another relative in an apartment but I didn’t like the small area. I love other dogs, cats, chickens, pretty much anything you can think of. I do great with everyone and would be a perfect ranch dog!

We’re happy to say the kitties are on the mend, but turn-ins and adoptions are suspended until every feline sniffle has cleared up!


Cat adoptions and turn-ins temporarily suspended

The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center has temporarily suspended cat adoptions and turn-ins due to capacity limitations and an outbreak of upper respiratory infections among the felines.

On Tuesday, the Animal Care Center announced that cat adoptions were suspended while staff provided medical care to the felines experiencing the respiratory infections. With adoptions suspended, the “kitty room” quickly reached its full capacity, necessitating the temporary suspension of accepting new turn-ins.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to take additional felines at this time,” says Arleen Garcia, supervisor at the Animal Care Center. “With the infection outbreak earlier this week, we needed to suspend adoptions while we provided medical care to the cats. We reached our capacity quickly.”

If your cat needs immediate rehoming, the Animal Care Center is asking owners to find other options. Also, staff urges people not to trap stray cats. In Arizona, cats are “free roaming” and are permitted to wander.
