Local Cat Rescue Hosts Back In Black Adoption Event
Back In Black is more than just an AC'/DC song but a 32 day animal adoption event lasting from August 15th - September 17th. Unlike Black Cat Adoption Monththis event covers all 4-legged animals with black cats often getting the worst of the deal. Often times black cats are overlooked at the shelters because of their color, superstition or some other reason by humans. Local participating animal rescue organizations such as Safe Haven are offering 50% off their normal fee for black and tuxedo cats during the event. Back In Black was originally started by Best Friends Animal Society located in Utah.

Cat Galaxy To Broadcast Monthly Cat Health Segments
Is your human constantly wondering what do medically when you felines come down with an illness? Are they in need of advice when your cat-like ways just simply baffle them? Beginning this month, Cat Galaxy will be broadcasting monthly segments on cat health and care with Dr. Aubrey Pruitt DVM from Four Peaks Animal Clinic in Scottsdale. Human listeners will be able to ask questions via email or Skype chat during the broadcast and hopefully get an answer about their cat's health or issue they may be facing.
"We are very honored to have Dr. Pruitt come back into the studio with us once a month to do these broadcasts. Feline health and care is important and there are so many illnesses that cats face every day and it helps to know what to do in an emergency situation. It'll be nice for the human listeners to be able to get advice from such a skilled vet," said Nohl Rosen of Cat Galaxy.
Four Peaks Animal Clinic is located at 8776 E. Shea Blvd, Suite B-7. That is just west of the 101 freeway and Shea in Pima Crossing. You can also contact them at 480-778-1770.
Spaying & Neutering Is A Good Thing
Meet Scottie, the cat whose human named Candace wanted to make sure the message got out about spaying and neutering your cat. We think the above is a great message. Many shelters in the Phoenix area were filled to capacity with felines because of unwanted litters. By having a cat spayed or neutered you can prevent more cats from being dumped by humans into shelters and in the streets as well as have a happier and healthier cat. Thanks for the message Scotty.
For low cost spay/neuter help visit the Spay/Neuter Hotline web site or call 602-265-2279. The Spay/Neuter Hotline is a program of the Animal Defense League of Arizona.
When Emergency Strikes: Cat Evacuation Tips
With wildfire season now here, many humans still need to consider their cats or other animals as part of the evacuation plan. Here are a few tips one should have.
1. If called to evacuate your home, take your felines with you. Cats should never be left behind during an evacuation.
2. Make sure the cat's carrier is an easy to reach place so if you are asked to evacuate it can be grabbed easily. Also be aware of all the cat's hiding spots around the house. A frightened feline will tend to hide in spots that comfort them like under beds, in closets, etc. Knowing where your cat's favorite spots are makes it easy to find them during an evacuation.
3. Prepare a kit for your cat's care such as food, water, food and water dish, bandages, litterbox, cat litter, and a toy or two. Also remember to pack their veterinary records, medication, brushes and anything else the cat would need.4. Keep numbers of local animal rescue organizations handy. Some animal rescues might have emergency shelters set up for animals having to evacuate because of fire or other disaster.
Cats & Foster Homes: A Purrfect Solution To Help Rescues
Did you know that cats also need foster homes too? This form of volunteering is sometimes overlooked and by fostering a cat or kitten you are helping to clear space at a shelter for cats that need it while at the same time preparing a cat for adoption. Because of cat and kitten season, many rescue organizations are taking in a large number of cats and kittens. Besides the ones listed on this page in the Phoenix area that ask for help we also get requests from feline rescue organizations outside of Arizona like Community Concern 4 Cats in Walnut Creek, CA which asked us to pass the word that they too are in need of foster homes for cats in that area. So, if you have the space and would also like to open your heart and home to a cat that needs it that would indeed purrfect. Contact your local shelter today for more information on fostering a cat today.
AHS & Silent Witness Help Abused Cats
Cats that are victims of abuse by humans will now get help in the form of a phone call. The Arizona Humane Society has teamed up with Silent Witness so those humans who witness a case of abuse against a feline can report it.
Humans with information regarding another human mistreating or abusing a cat can call 480-WITNESS. If the information also leads to the arrest and conviction of the person, the AHS & Silent Witness will pay up to a $5,000 reward to the individual that reported incident.
