Helping AzCATs help cats...


AzCATs has launched their annual SOS (Save Our Street Kittens) annual fundraising drive and request your assistance!


Phoenix, AZ March 1, 2006 –  AzCATs does more than just educate people on TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) programs for feral cats: they are single-handedly responsible for assisting 7,161 homeless street cats in 2005.  Between Mid-1999 and 2005, AzCATs sterilized over 28,546 street cats, nearly 12% of the estimated 350,000 homeless feral cats living on the streets of Maricopa County. 


While this is only a small percentage of the overall goal, much more can be accomplished with the public’s assistance.  AzCATs works in close partnership with local veterinarians who provide low cost spay/neuter services.  However, even through these partnerships the surgeries cost the organization, up to $35-$55 per cat,” says Melissa Newton, President and CEO of AzCATs.  “In order to meet our 2006 annual goal of providing rescue assistance to over 7,800 homeless street cats, we must reach our goal of $30,000 in pledges by March 31st, 2006.”  There are several levels of sponsorship: 

AzCATs 2006 Annual Campaign


Founder’s Club:                   $5000+


Chairman’s Club:                  $2500 - $4999


President’s Club:                  $1000 – $2499


Alley Cat:                               $500 – $999


Feral Feline:                         $250 - $499


Street Kitten:                         $100 - $249


Caregiver:                             Under $100


Where Funds Are Distributed


$2,500 sponsors (1) Mission Nip ‘N Tip (MNT) for 150 cats


$1,500 sponsors (1) Mini Mission Nip ‘N Tip (MMNT) for 50 cats


$125 buys the surgical instruments needed to spay cats


$100 buys the medical supplies for an entire Mission Nip ‘N Tip Spay Day


$50 purchases one humane trap


$45 sterilizes one unaltered cat


$25 buys enough tuna to humanely trap 107 cats



AzCATs is an Arizona non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation dedicated to humanely ending cat overpopulation. For more information on AzCATs call (480) 968-4TNR (4867). Visit AzCATs at
