Citizens For North Phoenix Strays is a non-profit 501c3, 100% volunteer, no kill
rescue organization that has been "Helping People, Help Animals"tm since 1993.
We are here to share our knowledge, information and resources to help educate and
facilitate efforts so more people are able to come to the aid and welfare of the animals.
CNPS will encourage, assist and support anybody anywhere that needs help saving an animal.
Whether it be thru low cost spaying and neutering,
humane trap-neuter-release, or by giving animals a second chance thru adoption.
Looking for a new pet? Search our websites...
http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/AZ01.html or http://www.adoptapet.com/adoption_rescue/74255.html
If you have a pet cat or pet dog that you want to get spayed or neutered – This will help you.
If you found a tame or feral cat or if you found a dog that you want to get fixed – This will help you.
If you are looking for help in finding a new home for a pet or stray, dog or cat – This will help you.
If you feed strays YOU MUST ALSO SPAY AND NEUTER or all you are doing is breeding cats to die.
If you expect someone to do everything for you, if you do not intend to follow thru, if you do not have a
vehicle, friends or family to "help you, help us", then nobody or nothing will be able to save that animal’s life.
After reading this flyer you will have no excuse not to make a difference.

FOR STRAY CATS AND FERAL/WILD CATS - these cats DO NOT have to die!!
If you are feeding stray or feral cats, help is available to get them spayed and neutered!
Trap-Neuter-Release is the most humane and effective method of stabilizing free-roaming cat populations.
Call Pam 602-717-2297 Susie 602-689-6069 at Az Feral Cats for information on TNR
SPAY AND NEUTER THOSE STRAYS !NOW! BEFORE THEY START BREEDING!
With Arizona weather cats go into heat 4x a year versus 1x a year.
1 stray will produce 27 new strays that will reproduce and on and on and on.
Don't be angry with stray cats... They are here because cruel irresponsible people threw them away.
Remember we are all volunteers with jobs just like you! But keep calling so you don’t get lost in the shuffle.
WE CAN HELP YOU FIND A NEW HOME FOR A PET OR STRAY
First of all we are not a shelter, we do not “take them in”.
DON’T STOP, PLEASE READ ON
If we took in every animal that we get called with everyday then all of our money would be spent on a building,
housing animals instead of spaying and neutering and making a difference.
This building would become a kill shelter. We would have to kill animals so we could take more in.
Or this building would become a no kill shelter, we would always be full and not be able to help you anyway.
We never have to say no! We will help everybody who is willing to ‘help us, help the animals’!
NO ANIMAL HAS TO DIE AT THE KILL SHELTERS.
THERE IS PLENTY OF HELP IF YOU MAKE THE EFFORT
We can help find a new home for a pet or stray cat or kittens
1 The compassionate responsible person that is willing to "help us, help the animal" will be my "contact" person.
Do not call for a friend of a friend.
2 Every adoptable animal will always get adopted. We “work together” until I inform you that the animal has been adopted.
3 My "contact" would bring the animal into a temporary safe inside environment, bathroom, bedroom, etc.
We are not asking you to stress your pets out by mixing them with animals you are trying to help.
4 Email me 4 good inside photos and a story so I can get the animal listed online and get him in line for a space at Petsmart.
Go to our websites above and pull up a story on a cat we have up for adoption. That is the kind of information i need for the story.
Where did he come from, why you don’t want him, is he good with cats, dogs, kids, whats his personality, favorite toys, etc...
Tell me everything you would want a new owner to know.
5 Our only requirement is that the cat/kitten be spayed or neutered, and must be, before they can be listed.
Read below to decide which program you want to use and how to use it.
6 If you will be using the Big Fix free voucher program you will need to get the applications and mail away
for the vouchers NOW. DON’T WAIT! It takes 4-7 weeks for the vouchers to arrive. Kittens must weigh 2 pounds or
10 weeks old to get fixed. As soon as you bring these animals inside where they are safe, get the applications
mailed off so you will have the vouchers by the time the kittens are old enough or big enough to be fixed.
7 Once the animal gets fixed, the pics and story have been emailed and the space is available at PetsMart,
you will bring the animal for a one-time check-in and shots here at the house near 35th Ave. & Bell Road.
After check-in you will drop off the animal with the paperwork at the adoption site. CNPS adopts cats from
the PetsMart store at 31st Ave. and Peoria. You have just saved a life! YOU have made a difference!!
8 As long as the cat or kittens adjust to their new environment they will stay at PetsMart until they are adopted.
If the situation turns unhealthy for an animal you will be called to pick him up. We can do the adoption online instead.
If this program works for you, email the info to Toni @ 602-332-6615, email@example.com
***If the previous options are impossible at least take the next best minimal action by fixing and releasing.
This allows the stray, freedom to take care of itself without the overwhelming burdens of reproducing.
If you do nothing the animal will still be where it is at, but unfixed and breeding. That's a cruel cruel life.
Please don’t just walk off and ignore that animal. Nobody else but you is going to do anything about it.
Nobody but the kill shelters can help dumpers.
A dumper is someone who just wants to dump the animal problem on to someone else.
We can help find a new home for a pet or stray dog or puppies
The information 1-6 listed above for cats and kittens, also pertains to dogs and puppies.
CNPS will list the animal online and when a party is interested, set up to meet and possibly adopt the dog.
Before a dog/puppy can be listed he must be spayed or neutered, current on rabies, licensed and chipped.
Read below to decide which program you want to use and how to use it.
YOU CANNOT GIVE UP. THE LIFE OF THAT ANIMAL RELIES ON YOU!
Because dogs/puppies cannot sit in a cage until they are adopted you must get their information out to as
many organizations as possible. Don’t rely on one organization to help find a home for the dog/puppies.
Every PetsMart and Petco has at least one organization adopting out animals. Call and get the phone numbers
to these organizations to see how they can help. Remember to let them know that you are not a dumper,
that you will “help them, help the animal”, that you will foster the animal and bring it to adoptions.
Also go to petfinder.com and do a search for dogs in your zip code. It will pull up dogs for adoption and
also the organizations helping those dogs. Call those organizations to see how they can help you.
You will get help if you are not a dumper.
**If you can pick out any distinct breeds in the dog your trying to help, contact C.A.B.R.A.
Coalition of All Breeds Rescue 480-874-2511 or http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/AZ79.html, scroll all the way down.
If you think he has any Shepherd, call Shepherd rescue and say you have a Shepherd (NOT a MIX) that needs help.
If you think he also has any Lab, then call Lab rescue and say you have a Lab (NOT a MIX). Let THEM decide if he is a purebred.
If your not sure of what the animal is send me a picture.
Please Do Not Use Online Classifieds ie:Craigslist, to give away animals!
Use a reputable rescue organization to find a safe and permanent home, CNPS 602-332-6615
***WARNING*** #1: If any organization says they will take your animal from you (for money or whatever)
please realize that they are taking them from the other 50 to 75 other callers they get a day.
Be sure you know who you are working with.
Our worst rescues have been from other rescue groups.
HELP THAT ANIMAL STAY HEALTHY AND ALIVE BY KEEPING IT IN IT’S OWN ENVIRONMENT,
NOT MIXED IN WITH 100’S OF OTHER STRAYS.
#2: The only shelters in town that will take animals are the kill shelters, The Humane Society and The Pound.
They have room to take them in because they kill them. It’s NOT their fault, it’s the lazy worthless
people who dump these poor animals not spayed or neutered in the first place! There are so many dropped off every day
that they’re killed in an assembly-line procedure. You will pay $96 per animal you drop off there to get a "home".
In the end it gets a needle stabbed in the heart (hopefully) and thrown into a garbage can.
I'm not telling you this to make you sick I am trying to give you a reality check. I'm telling it like it is.
***YOUR LAST OPTION***… Death is not the absolute worst thing these animals have to look forward to,
we are all going to die…it’s HOW they die that’s important. If you have no choice but to have an animal euthanized
because you cant find him a new home or for whatever reason, go to a veterinarian and have it done the right way.
Don’t let him die at the Humane Society or the Pound!
Give that animal what it deserves, and that is, a non-threatening, quiet environment surrounded by love.
Let that stray or unwanted pet be put to sleep peacefully, held by you or while being petted
and not in total fear the last few minutes of his life.
It’s very important to have the pre-anesthetic shot done first. For questions call Toni 602-332-6615

Did you know it is cheaper to fix and release ($25) than it is to drop off at the kill shelters ($96)!
Use common sense. Cats must be in a plastic carrier and dogs must be on a leash!
