Who we are
Save The Cats Arizona rescues stray cats from the Gilbert Riparian Preserve. A beautiful recreational area for families and bird watchers, this area has unfortunately become a spot for irresponsible pet owners to release unwanted cats. Hungry and scared, these former-pets struggle to find food and avoid becoming targets of raptors, coyotes and humans.
By the fall of 2010, the cat population in the Riparian Preserve grew to 80+ cats. In partnership with the Town of Gilbert and the help of Riparian staff, we were able to remove most of the Riparian Preserve kitties to safety.
After receiving a rescued cat from the Riparian Preserve, we attend to any medical issues including spay and neuter, testing, and vaccinations. We then place our kitties in foster homes or in our private cat community, Kitty Corral, for cats that are too feral to be adopted. In either case, it is our number one priority to ensure that the cats in our care live a happy and safe life.
Kitty Corral was built in August 2011, and expanded in the spring of 2012. The cavas covered enclosure is 550 square feet with misters for the summer heat, and canvas side panels which can be lowered for the winter. The residents enjoy the outdoor feel and fresh air without the worry for their safety.
