Look who wants a forever home!:




Meet Julia!  This sweet and beautiful cat, Julia, deserves a forever home! She was found abandoned outside with her 3 kittens. The kittens have found homes and now Miss Julia is ready for hers! She is spayed and has all her shots. She is about 6-8 months old. She doesn’t do well with dogs. If you are interested in meeting Julia, call Julie at 520-227-4486. (courtesy post)

This is Bella!  Bella is available for pre-adoption. After her spay and shots are completed (first week of October) she will be available for adoption.

Meanwhile, meet and fall in love with her now and take her home with you sometime the week of 10/3/22) Sweet Bella is an absolute lovebug! As soon as you touch her, she starts to purrrrrr. She is a bit of a chow hound—as soon as her foster mom walks in with the wet food her motor starts and she gets so excited! Her coloring is so unique! She really is such a “Bella”! Bella has been fostered with other cats and loves them! She would love to have a kitty friend in her new home. We aren’t sure how she would do with dogs, as she hasn’t met any. She has a very sweet and loving disposition. We think she would do well with respectful kids. If you’re looking for a gorgeous girl with an adorable purrrrsonality—look no further!!! interested in pre-adopting her, please reach out to us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]




Aubrey and her siblings were born outside to a feral mama. We were able to catch them all and bring them inside to be socialized. Aubrey is the shyest of her litter. While she's still not completely convinced her foster parents are cool, she ADORES the other kitties in her foster home! She can often be seen snuggling with the older cats in the house and giving them head and booty boops with love! Aubrey would thrive in a calmer home that will appreciate and understand that she's a little shy and will need time to settle in and warm up to her people. Because of this, we do not feel she would do best in a home with young kids who wouldn't understand why she isn't immediately snuggly. Aubrey LOVES the scratching posts and cardboard scratchers/loungers! She enjoys chasing the wand toy with her foster parents and will entertain booty scratches and snuggles at her discretion (she IS a cat, after all!).

Aubrey is spayed, current on FVRCP & Rabies vaccines, tested negative for Feline Leukemia & FIV, and microchipped.

If you'd like to give this beautiful fluffball all the love she deserves, please reach out to us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]

Meet Mr. Tibbles! Approx. dob: 4/18/22 He started as a kitten living on the streets. Fortunately, he and his siblings were trapped and brought into our care. Their mom was spayed and very happily returned to the home she knows! Mr. Tibbles is a sweet little boy. But due to his rough start, he will probably be a little shy at first. A patient and loving home is what he needs! He is very inquisitive. He will get active at times, especially with his brother, Ziggy! Mr. Tibbles gets along well with other cats—we are unsure how he would do with dogs. His favorite place is the top of the cat tree—he loves to admire his domain from above. Mr. Tibbles would love if he could be adopted with his bestie, Ziggy. If not, he’d probably love joining a family with another kitty to be his friend. Due to his shy nature, he might not be best with young kiddos—they don’t understand why the kitty doesn’t want to be picked up immediately.

If you feel your heart being tugged to meet Mr. Tibbles, please let us know! Mr. Tibbles is neutered, up to date on FVRCP & Rabies vaccines, tested negative for Feline Leukemia & FIV, microchipped and litter box trained.

Now that her mothering duties are over, she is all about playing and goes wild with all kinds of different toys. She is also gentle and loving, very sweet. She gets along with other cats, unknown with dogs and children. She is vaccinated, FIV/FELV-tested, microchipped, and litter-box-trained. Contact Kerry at (520) 227-4735.

Hi! My name is Betty Boop and I am less than a year old. I am a Domestic Medium Hair Diluted Tortoiseshell and am very vocal, especially at mealtime. I consider myself a diva and will allow you a few pets, but am not very fond of being held. Please do not take it personally, but I do have some trauma in my past. I am not big on playing with toys and prefer soaking up some sun in a window and allowing the world to bask in my beauty.  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]


My name is Mojo, or Mojito. I am a Domestic Short Hair Calico (female) and am less than a year old. I have beautiful golden eyes and a very playful spirit. As a kitten, I loved to hide in very small spaces so that my foster mom couldn’t find me. She called me Mojo because it was like magic that I could fit in such places. I can’t fit in them anymore. I love to run zoomies and wrestle with my foster siblings and play with all the toys in our room. I also love to lay in the sun and hide in boxes to jump out and surprise my foster mom. . I am very affectionate and would love to become a member of a family!  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]


My name is Picara and I am a boy who is less than a year old. I was found on the streets of Sierra Vista as a very small and frightened kitten. I was so scared that my foster mom named me Picara because it means sassy. I can still be pretty sassy, but have calmed down quite a bit and actually have learned to enjoy getting loved on. I also love doing zoomies with my foster siblings, playing with all kinds of toys, taking siestas during the heat of the day, and of course eating! I have been socialized with a variety of cats and a couple of dogs, but am not certain of small humans yet. Could you possibly be my furever family?  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]



The name is Bond, James Bond, and I am less than a year old. I was found wandering on a farm in Hereford all by myself when I was about 4 weeks old. I have a distinctive kink in the end of my tail that just adds to my character. I love to hunt bugs, moths, and flies as well as play with all kinds of toys and hide from villains in boxes. In order to keep my energy up to rid the world of evilness. I also take my water, shaken, not stirred.  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]




Daisy is a special tabby lady who is being fostered along with her sister, Marigold. Daisy has a pretty, unique smile due to some crooked teeth. She loves to play with string teaser toys and she is an aerial artist! She can jump very high, performing twists and flips to catch the feather on the string. She likes very gentle pets and sometimes gets edgy and will gently nip you if you aren’t petting her the way she likes. For this reason, she should probably go to a home with adults and older children. She and her sister, Marigold, love each other and love their foster mom, following her wherever she goes in the house. They both love running water and enjoy a drink and a chance to play in the bathroom sink. Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]



Marigold is a stunning tabby lady who is being fostered along with her sister, Daisy. Marigold is a bit shyer with people than her sister and took a few days longer to warm up to her foster mom. However, she really went all in when she decided to let her new mom love her. She has a beautiful, deep, melodic meow and enjoys having conversations with her foster mom. She and her sister, Daisy, love each other and love their foster mom, following her wherever she goes in the house. They both love running water and enjoy a drink and a chance to play in the bathroom sink. Though shyer than her sister, don’t be fooled, Marigold is the queen of the cats, and Daisy follows her lead.   Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]



Contessa is about 11 mos. old (Sept 2022), a white-with-gray-spots spayed female who is quite sweet.  She is quiet and gentle. This girl has potential to be the center of someone's universe.

Contact Kerry at ((520) 227-4735.



My name is Yin, but sometimes my foster mom calls me Yinifer. I am a female who is less than a year old and came from a hoarding situation in St. David. I am the sole survivor of my litter and have had a tough time getting healthy and strong enough to be adopted. I love to play with toys, hide in boxes, and wrestle with my foster siblings. I also enjoy my quiet time and personal space. I am not big on being held, but do enjoy getting loved on. I will probably be very shy at first, but food always helps me come out of my shell!  I know that I will miss my foster mom and siblings, but I know that it is time I spread my paws and soar and the strong, independent cat that I am meant to be! Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]


My name is Thomas. My sister, Geri, and I are both under a year old. I really hate cameras and as you can tell by the look on my face. I am none too happy that my foster human was taking one of me. I have four white socks that my foster mom says makes me a proper gentleman! My sister and I were born in an abandoned car in Golden Acres. When we first came into care, I did not want to be touched or held and ran from my foster mom. I am still very shy, but do like to be loved on at my discretion. My sister and I are a bonded pair, so we are looking for a home big enough for both of us. We both get zoomies and enjoy wrestling with each other.  Can we come home with you?  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]

My name is Geri, and please do not judge me by this picture. I really hate cameras and as you can tell by the look on my face. I am none too happy that my foster human was taking one of me. The camera put on more pounds than I have lives! I am a very sweet girl, along with my brother, Thomas, that were born in an abandoned car in Golden Acres. When we first came into care, I did not want to be touched or held and ran from my foster mom. I am still very shy, but do like to be loved on at my discretion. My brother and I are a bonded pair, so we are looking for a home big enough for both of us. We both get zoomies and enjoy wrestling with each other.  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]


My name is Ruby and I am about two years old. When I came into my Foster mom’s care, I did not play, like to be touched, or picked up. Now I LOVE to play and run zoomies around the room. I also enjoy getting pets, but am still not completely crazy about being held. I am a VERY deep sleeper and get easily startled if I am touched while sleeping so now my foster mom always says my name before she touched me when I am napping. I like playing with jingle balls, springs, and crinkle toys that I can get my pack paws into.  Even though I have been socialized with many other cats, I think I would do best as an only cat as I will probably be shy at first anyways. Do you have room in your heart and life for me? I hope so!  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]



My name is Max and I am about 2 years old. My foster mom thinks I am the result of a love match between a cat and a bush baby because I have such large round eyes that I always look surprised. I am very quiet and laid back and prefer to find a secluded place to curl up for a nap. At first I did not like to be held or touched and would run and hide when foster mom approached. I have since learned to trust, but will probably still be shy at first. My favorite thing is first thing in the morning when breakfast is being served, I get a loving scritch on my head and a gentle “good morning, handsome” from foster mom. I have not discovered toys as of yet even though there are tons of them here.  I would love to find my furever home, but think I would do best in one that is quiet without small children for now.  Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]

Avery and his sisters were born outside to a feral mama. We were able to catch them all and bring them into a foster home. Avery is the most people-oriented kitty of his litter. He has a very calm and sweet demeanor. He can often be found snoozing on the cardboard scratch pads and on the kitty towers in his foster home. Avery REALLY loves his sisters! They play play play together! He would love to go home with Abby, Aubrey or Adley! As you can see, he is great with large cat-friendly dogs! Expect that Avery will need a little adjustment period to get used to his new home and family--but he's such a sweetheart and is totally worth the patience :) Avery tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia and he's microchipped.

These furbabies have recently been adopted!:


Update:  Adopted Sept 2022 

Hi, I’m Calista and I want ALL your attention! I’m super sweet and friendly and I’ll follow you everywhere and talk to you and play and meow and purr and … phew, now it’s time for a lap nap! I’m about 4 months old and full of energy and love. I love my foster cat friends and I love people. I don’t know too many dogs, but I’m sure I will adjust and love them too. I am spayed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLv tested, and

microchipped and am ready to become the center of your world!



Update:  Adopted, Sept 2022

This is Blossom.  Four month old Blossom is very vocal and cuddly but she prefers wrestling with hands and any available toy around. Just like her siblings, she is very energetic.


Update:  Adopted Sept 2022

This is Abby!  Abby & her siblings were born outside to a feral mama. We were able to catch them all and bring them inside for socialization. Abby was VERY shy at first, but has really started coming out of her shell in her foster home! Abby LOVESSSS the other kitties! She's fostered with adults and kittens (her besties are her siblings, Avery, Aubrey, & Adley). She'd LOVE to be adopted with one of them! Abby's ideal family would be patient and understanding that she will take some time to warm up to her new forever home. She has been fostered with large cat-friendly dogs and has done well. We don't think Abby would do great with young kiddos who wouldn't understand why she isn't immediately snuggly. Abby is super cute and interactive! She loves the scratchers, and can often be found laying in the cardboard bed/scratchers. She enjoys a good chase with the wand toy and loves to romp and play with the other kitties. Abby is spayed, current on FVRCP & Rabies vaccines, tested negative for Feline Leukemia & FIV, and microchipped! 

Update:  Adopted Sept 2022

Adley has been fostered with cats and kittens of all ages. She's also been fostered with large cat-friendly dogs and done well. Because she is still shy, she will need a family who can be patient and lure the sweet out of her with play and affection.

Update:  Adopted Sept 2022

Macaroni n' Cheese, or Mac for short, is one of the friendliest cats you'll meet. He loves to play with feather toys and laser pointers, and will cozy up to any cat that will let him. Because he came from a rough past, he needs a gentle touch, so small kids may not be the best fit. He enjoys curling up at your feet, crossing his front legs in a fancy fashion, and shadowing you while you do chores around the house. He has the most unique dark orange eyes, and will surely make an excellent addition to your home.   Contact us at 520-432-7964 to leave a message, or email us at [email protected]
