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
Patches is a 6 month old calico kitten. She is shy and reserved at first. Once she is comfortable she is very mellow and sweet. She is affectionate but not a lap kitten. She loves to play and eat! She will guard her food and grumble if another cat tries to get it. The sink is her favorite place to be. She likes to play with the water. She is good with other cats once she gets used to them and tolerates dogs but will hiss if they approach her. She likes children and sleeps with the foster's 10 year old grandchild.
Cat of the Week
Tiny Tina is a beautiful Snowshoe girl with big blue eyes. She loves playing with balls and especially loves to play with a ball tower. One of her favorite things of all is to get is a cuddle session. Though she’s a little unsure about getting picked up she loves to get petted. TT needs to have an older cat friend to watch out for her and make her feel comfortable. She is fine with dogs but just ignores them. She keeps away from children so would not be good match.

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).
