Our Pet list

Pet of the Month

Our pet of the month introduces himself...
Our featured pet: TOMMY!

Tommy is a black and white male, about 1 to 2 years old, and he is neutered. Tommy favorite place is up on the back of the recliner chair and he likes to groom his person's head. He has a beautiful medium-long silky charcoal gray and white fur. He's still a young cat that has bonded with his foster mom. His new owner would need to be a bit patient and give him a little time to adjust to his new home. If you would like to meet Tommy to see if he is the one for you, please email us mesatcs@hotmail.com or leave a message at 480-373-6965 today.

News!

We are a CAT ADOPTION organization only. We do not handle dogs, puppies, or any other pets or wildlife. Please contact 480-898-pets or 1-888-pets911 for information and referrals in handling these animals.

PLEASE NOTE! Our shelter is full to capacity. We are unable to take in any animals at this time. Any animals dumped in the area surrounding our site will be immediately taken to Rabies Animal Control (the pound). This neighborhood is on the alert for animal abandoners. The information will be turned over to the police for prosecution.

M.T.C.S. desperately needs a volunteer with bookkeeping experience to help with taxes. Our previous CPA no longer is available to assist us. Volunteers can also help with socializing with cats, fundraising, and cleaning up. Please call us for further information regarding volunteering with our organization.

Who We Are

M.T.C.S. is a 501c3 organization and was originally founded to help stray cats around the Mesa Town Center. We have expanded our care to include the East Valley. We are a small facility, but we strive to give the best care to cats we rescue. Strict guidelines are followed to assure a healthy pet is made available for adoption. If we cannot provide care for an animal, we will our best to direct you to someone who can.

Adopting a friend

Service Information for Cats
Adoption: The adoption fee for a cat is $60. The fee includes Leukemia tested negative, dewormed, spayed or neuterer, blood work, and vaccinations. A spay or neuter agreement is mandatory for our kitten adoptions.

Our policy on accepting stray animals:

Our facility has very limited capacity for new strays. We will make every attempt to help find solutions to stray problems or cases where a pet has to be given up.

Try the following before contacting an animal rescue organization to take your pet in:

Place the pet yourself with friends or family.
Let the grapevine work! Tell your friends to tell their friends that you are giving up your pet. Tell everyone you know. If you plan to take them to the Humane Society or Animal Care & Control (dog pound) tell them that too. Some kind soul will help.
Ask your neighbors and neighborhood children if they will help you look for a new home for your pet.
Put an ad in your work newsletter or church bulletin.
Put ads up at your local veterinarian or pet shops like PETCO or PETSMART.
If you put a classified ad in the newspaper be sure to charge a price to keep your pet safe from people shopping for free animals. Properly screen all interested adoptive families to make sure your pet will have a safe, loving, permanent home.
Put free ads up at the grocery store and anywhere else people congregate.
Ask friends to watch your pet for a few weeks to give you extra time if you need it.

IF YOU GIVE IT TIME, THE GRAPEVINE WILL WORK!!! ONLY CALL A RESCUE ORGANIZATION WHEN YOU HAVE TRIED ALL OF THE ABOVE AND STILL CANNOT FIND A SAFE HOME FOR YOUR PET. THEN, GIVE ANIMAL RESCUE GROUPS ENOUGH TIME TO WORK. DO NOT CALLUP EXPECTING TO ABANDON YOUR PET THE SAME DAY!!!

Always charge $40-$50 for your pet and use it to spay/neuter the pet. Charge so the pet will not be sold to a lab for experimentation, used as bait in a pit bull fighting ring, used in demonic rituals, killed for its meat, or be mistreated. People only value what they have to pay for. - No "Free Pets to Good Home" PLEASE!
