Fearlessly Saving Kitties in Need
DON’T KIT-NAP KITTENS
Thinking about bringing kittens to FEARLESS KITTY RESCUE?
Mom will likely return. Please don’t intervene.
When we find a litter of kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to the aid of these fragile felines. Thankfully, human intervention is typically not required. In fact, the best thing we can do is leave the kittens alone. Mom will likely return shortly, and it’s critical that the kittens remain in her care as she offers the best chance for survival. If you find kittens and are extremely certain that they are orphaned, you can then step in and help by caring for the kittens until they’re old enough to find homes.
During kitten season, Valley shelters are overrun with kittens and don’t have adequate resources to care for them. Please care for them in your home until they’re 8 weeks old. Shelters/Rescues do not have space to provide more kittens the care they require, but Arizona Humane Society’s compassionate volunteers and staff came up with a solution! They’ve launched a new care-in-place program designed to make it convenient for good Samaritans to care for newborn kittens in their home. They will provide all the necessary tools, including care kits, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and tips on bottle feeding to ensure these little felines get off to a healthy start, and help you find them forever homes when they’re ready.

Our Dine Out Night in Fountain Hills event was a SMASHING success!
It surpassed our expectations in the amount of community support from our local restaurants and donations from our attending diners.
Fearless Kitty Rescue received over $3,660 from the proceeds of this event.
Thank you to the following restaurants for their support of our life saving work.
Please take ACTION NOW!!
The Western Governors’ Association now includes “feral (or spay-neuter-release) cats” among its “top 50 invasive species in the West.” And, to our knowledge, no animal welfare organizations were involved in the conversations that led to this decision.
Western Governors’ Association invasive species list targeting domestic cats
According to an Associated Press story that’s been picked up all across the country, WGA’s invasive species list was released “in hopes of helping people recognize and eradicate the invaders before they spread.” Is WGA really calling on its 19 member states and three U.S. territories to eradicate this country’s most popular companion animal? It’s difficult to interpret this announcement any other way.
