SAVE A PET
Our mission is to provide care, comfort and compassion for all the cats and kittens who come into our care by finding them forever homes. In addition we also want to help build a humane community that promotes cat advocacy by educating the public about the need for spaying/neutering pets.
Cactus Cats Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3, no-kill rescue organization that began in 1998. We are a group of volunteers, some of whom have been in the rescue business for 20+ years. We are dedicated to finding forever homes for every kitten and cat that comes into our care. All of our kittens and cats reside in foster homes with knowledgeable and caring foster parents and their families. We work closely with other rescue groups and animal shelters and all of your donations are tax deductible!
Kitten of the Week
Hey, I'm Cecil! and I'm just so darned handsome with my shiny black fur and copper eyes; like a tiny black panther! I am relaxing into life as a kitten and even if I'm a little bit shy, I like to run and play! I like to play with the humans as well and am full of curiosity. I'm also okay with kids if they don't try to grab me or make too much noise. I'm very friendly but I don't like lots of noise. Even though it takes me a little bit to get comfortable, I can be enticed with treats (yum!), but I might need some patient teaching for the cuddles. I would make a wonderful companion in a home that is a little more quiet.
Cat of the Week
Jack is a handsome long-haired big and bold cat. He is very friendly and playful and absolutely loves to be the center of attention. He is very passionate about his food and will rub up against your legs until his dinner is served. Since he believes he's the king of the jungle, he would do best in a home where he is the only cat and without very young children since he wants the undivided attention from his person. He will make someone an absolutely wonderful companion with his bold and sassy personality.

Pets and COVID-19: Updated Information
April 26, 2020
Information for Pet Parents
The most important things pet lovers should know today are:
According to the CDC, at this time, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low. Therefore, there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals that may compromise their welfare.
While additional animals may test positive as infections continue in people, it is important to note that performing animal COVID-19 testing does not reduce the availability of tests for humans.
Treat pets as you would other human family members – do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household. If a person inside the household becomes sick, isolate that person from everyone else, including pets.
The CDC always recommends following everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of illness. As always, pet parents should adopt good hygiene habits, such as washing their hands before and after handling pets, their food and supplies, and maintain a clean environment.
People who are sick with COVID-19 should restrict their contact with animals.
When possible, have another member of your household care for your pets while you are sick.
If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wear a cloth face covering and wash your hands before and after you interact with them.
If you see any changes in the health condition of your pets, advice from a veterinarian should be sought as soon as possible.
Emergency Plan for Pets
Cactus Cats Rescue encourages all pet-owners to have an emergency plan in place for their pets.
Identify a family member, friend or pet sitter who can care for your pet if you become ill or hospitalized.
Have crates, food and extra supplies on hand for quick movement of pets.
Keep all pet vaccines up to date in the event boarding becomes necessary.
Ensure all medications are documented with dosages and administering directions. Including the prescription from your veterinarian is also helpful.
Pets should have identification: collar with ID tag and microchip (best practice is microchipping).
