Surrendering Your Cat or a Stray

Intake is by appointment only at our rescue in Fountain Hills, AZ.

Most shelters and rescues are limiting their intake of new animals at this time. We suggest trying to rehome your pet by utilizing social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram, Next Door, or Rehome by Adopt-A-Pet. You may find additional help on our Resource page. Be sure to check with your family, friends, co-workers, or neighbors, they may be interested in adopting your pet.

If this surrender is a previously adopted Fearless Kitty, please send us an email at info@fearlesskittyrescue.org and we will contact you to arrange for return of the kitty.

Cats being considered must meet an Intake Team Member for behavior/medical evaluation and must meet the following criteria:

– Be friendly with humans (must enjoy being handled; we are unable to take feral cats).
– Be friendly with other cats.
– Be behaviorally and medically healthy. No contagious disease (FeLV, ringworm, etc.)
– No history of biting.

NOTE: If we can help, we will respond within 72 hours. However, due to the large number of requests received for intake, you will be notified ONLY if we are able to help. We are asked to take in 3,500 kitties a year but we can only take in 300. If you do not hear back within 72 hours, please look for placement with another group. We know that surrendering a cat can be an emotional experience, but with limited resources, we are not able to provide individual updates regarding their status. If you would like updates, please sign up for our monthly newsletter, follow us on Social Media, or check out our *Adopted Fearless Kitties* page. Thank you for understanding.

Please be as thorough as possible when answering the questions below.
