Surrender Requirements

If you would like to surrender your cat(s) to Sun Cities 4 Paws, please contact our Peoria Shelter at 623-773-2246. Please be aware we usually have a waiting list for intakes and there are times when we will not be able to help or even be able to add you to the list.
  • Adult cats must have a recent snap test for Felv (Feline Leukemia) and FIV (Feline Immuno Virus) and they must be negative for both.
  • In addition to the snap test results, please bring any vet records you have for the cat and/or your vets name/phone number
  • Any surrendered cat must be adoptable and have no behavioral issues (biting, etc)
  • The surrender fee for 1 adult cat is $50 if the cat is fixed, $75 if the cat is not fixed
  • Stray cat(s) must also have a negative snap test, the same surrender fee(s) will apply
  • Kittens under 12 weeks do not need a snap test, but the surrender fees will vary based on the number of kittens.
  • We cannot intake litters of young kittens unless we have a foster person available. We will work on getting a foster scheduled (if there are any available) prior to intaking the kittens.
  • Pregnant moms still need a negative snap test and the surrender fee is $150
  • We do not take in feral cats
