Sun Cities 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.

Loving Legacy Program

When securing our future, we often forget to make provisions for our pets. Sun Cities 4 Paws Rescue has a program called the Loving Legacy which helps you to make provisions for your cat(s) if something were to prevent you from caring for them. Too often people believe their families will care for their fur babies and it turns out, they don’t want that responsibility.

Visit our Loving Legacy page for more information on how this program could give you a peace of mind.

Sponsor a Shelter Cat

Our long term resident cats, some with special medical needs or those who haven’t found the right person yet, live at the Peoria Shelter. For various reasons, these cats are not as likely to be adopted and may spend the rest of their lives here at the Peoria Shelter. So when you sponsor a shelter cat, it helps Sun Cities 4 Paws cover the cost of their daily care, as well as their ongoing medical needs, if required now or needed in the future.

To donate, visit our donation page and choose “sponsor a shelter cat” from the drop down box.

Petco ‘Big Check’ grant award presentation

A big “thank you” goes out to Petco for awarding our rescue with this big check and allowing us to continue the work we do for cats in our community!
