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


Jack was found living alone in a raised flower bed at a grocery store when he was 3 months old. He blossomed into a quirky, alpha, beautiful male kitten. He is friendly and playful but must always have his own way. He is very passionate about food and will move rub up against your legs in the kitchen when it's feeding time. He is good with young cats but would do better in a home without young children.

Cat of the Month


Sampson is a very loving, sweet cat with a big heart. He loves to be petted, and have lots of snuggle sessions. One of his favorite activities his to be able to snuggle on your lap. His great desire in life is to be a lap cat. He would do best in a home where he is the only pet and will be the center of attention. He will make someone a wonderful companion.

Pets and COVID-19:
Information for Pet Parents


The most important things pet lovers should know today are:

  • According to the CDC, there is currently no known reason to believe that any animals, including pets in the United States, can spread COVID-19.

  • To date, the CDC has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19.

  • The CDC always recommends following everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of illness.


People who are sick with COVID-19 should restrict their contact with animals. If you see any changes in the health condition of your pets, advice from a veterinarian should be sought as soon as possible. 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.

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).
