4 Paws is no kill, non-profit, volunteer, tax-exempt organization. Our mission is to rescue cats in the Sun Cities area; to provide temporary care either in foster homes or in a permanent shelter for such animals, while facilitating their adoption in appropriate homes; to cooperate with other organizations dedicated to the rescue and care of homeless animals, and to work for humane solutions to the problem of pet overpopulation.

Income is derived from adoptions, memberships, thrift store sales, fundraising events, and bequests. For information on how you can help support us and save homeless animals call 623-876-8778

Hi! I’m Wilson. I have been here at 4 Paws for almost 6 years after my owner had to give me up. My sibling was adopted right away, but I had a rough time being away from my owner and didn’t want to be with anyone else. I have found a buddy, her name is Slinky. We stick together almost all the time. But, I am getting older (11years old..but who's counting?), and now I have stomach problems and arthritis. A lot of us can relate to that, can’t we? I’ve had several surgeries on my ears as I had tumors on them. My medicines and care cost a bit. So one day, Slinky and I were talking, and came up with this brilliant idea..I would reach out and see if someone would sponsor me monthly to help pay my expenses. How about it? Would you help and sponsor me? Thank you for reading my story. To help, click the green donate button in the upper right corner, and chose ‘Sponsor a Shelter Resident’

Sun Cities 4 Paws is one of the few shelters/rescues that has a Senior Foster Program. We have an adorable tabby/white 14 year old named Sarah Rose, whose previous foster has passed away and she needs a new foster home. Sarah Rose was originally named Seven (we don’t know why), and she has a birth defect known as a diaphragmatic hernia, in which there is a hole in the diaphragm, allowing her organs (like the stomach, liver, and intestines) to move up towards her chest area. Though she has been living with this for over 11 years with no problems, it does make her chest appear larger than her hindquarters. She is on renal (kidney) food and is monitored by our veterinarian. If you would like to know more about Sarah Rose and Senior Fostering, please call us at 623-876-8778 or email us at seniorfoster@4pawsrescue.org

Late in 2015, a white/gray cat was found on side of road riddled with BB’s. This cat was cared for by a lady until late 2016 when the cat was brought to Sun Cities 4 Paws to see if we could help.... Read More
