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

Dear 4 Paws Supporters and Followers:

Recently a little kitten, who was lost and alone and hurting, was found by a concerned gentleman. This poor little girl’s paws were red, swollen, and bloodied. The kind person immediately took her to a veterinarian who diagnosed severe chemical burns. The little kitten’s rescuer was unable to keep her, and luckily, 4 Paws Rescue had room for one more.

The veterinarians at 4 Paws treated her, and to protect her burned paws the caregivers applied medication, bandages and newborn-baby socks to further protect them. Thus she was given a new name, ‘Chaussettes’ , French for “socks”. With the continued care given by the 4 Paws staff, her paws have healed and little Chaussettes can now walk and play as any healthy kitten does.

We need you. Sun Cities 4 Paws Rescue (4 Paws) has taken in over 700 abandoned, injured, and lost cats/kittens already this year. Cats and kittens that have been shot with BB’s, found with advanced eye disease and blind, covered in asphalt with wounds or abscesses, abandoned with no protection, or broken limbs or tails are just the beginning of felines that have made their way to our rescue/shelter in search of healing, hope, and love. AND THANKS TO YOU, our dedicated members and supporters, they find it.

As a NO-KILL SHELTER, our dedicated staff, veterinarian, specialists, and foster parents help 4 Paws continue to give quality, life saving care to these felines. We find homes for over 90% of the cats and kittens in our care and will provide lifetime shelter to the ones that are still waiting. And we never stop trying to find them homes of their own.

4 Paws has been rescuing cats and kittens for over 20 years. We continue to expand as the needs of homeless and injured cats and kittens grow. We presently have two shelter locations, and conduct daily adoptions at PetSmart locations in Surprise and north Peoria. We have fosters for our senior cats (over 10 years old) and newborn kittens, with or without the mother cats. We are proud to be a Best Friends Animal Society Network Partner.

Our medical expenses, shelter costs, food, supplies, and maintenance are growing right along with our expanding services. All 4 Paws cats and kittens are feline leukemia tested, fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and healthy prior to adoption. Won’t you continue to help us continue our life-saving work? We need and depend on you in our fundraising efforts; our operation receives no government funding.

I am reaching out to you to ask that you please help make the holiday season a very merry one for kittens like Chaussettes who are full of life and having a ball while waiting for their Christmas wishes to come true!

Won’t you please reach into your pockets and send us a holiday donation? A year end gift of $25, $50, or even $100 will help rescue and save lives. Any amount will help! Even one dollar can provide 2 cans of wet food for a cat with dental issues, or help one take needed medicines. And Sun Cities 4 Paws Rescue is a 501c (3) tax exempt organization, so all contributions are tax deductible this year if made by December 31st.

The Board of 4 Paws and I both appreciate your dedication to reach out and help your local shelter. If you would like to donate online, please visit our web site at www.4pawsrescue.org and click on the link Support to use a secure browser. If you have any questions, please call us at 623-583-1824.

On behalf of all our cats, a very sincere Thank You,

Deb Heise, President
