threekittensAnimal Adoption Center of Rocky Point has been at the same location now for 14 years and has been a non-profit corporation since then. Summer is here and this is a tough time of year for the animals as donations are slow. Please consider a small monthly donation to help us get through the summer. You can donate through PayPal on our web page or Facebook page or send a check made out to AACORP to PO Box 1031, Lukeville, AZ 85341. You donations are tax deductible.

We suggest that those who find newborn kittens try to care for them through the summer, until they are at least 2 pounds, so that they can be spayed or neutered. Kittens go to volunteer foster families that bottle-feed and take care of them until they are heavy enough for surgery.

Many times, when people find a litter of newborn kittens, the mother is somewhere nearby. “What tends to happen is, the mama, she goes out to find food for her kittens. People find these 1- or 2-day-old kittens, and people think they’re abandoned,” It sometimes is better to build a shed or a shade area for the kittens while they wait for their mothers to return, rather than to pick them up or move them. We also urge people to take advantage of free or low-cost spay-and-neuter clinics if they find stray cats or have pet cats that have not yet been sterilized. The city offers low-cost or free spay-and-neuter services and rabies vaccinations. Call for information at (638) 388-5152.

Stray cats often are friendly, but feral cats are wild and unable to be socialized. Sterilization helps change feral-cat behaviors that annoy neighbors, such as spraying or yowling, because those behaviors are associated with mating season.

With so many kittens available for adoption during the summer, they get snatched up quickly and make older cats less adoptable.

We have many kittens that are in many locations/ Please call Nancy at (638) 383-1012 for information or an appointment to see the kittens.

We are in need of kitten dry food – Purina is a good one. Please bring a bag or two on your next visit to Rocky Point. A big thank you to all that help the animals.

We have five playful, healthy puppies that are up for adoption. We adopted out 5 pups and 4 kittens in the past week so call for appointment to come visit and pick a new best friend.

We also helped a local woman with her tiny kitten that had been hit by a car. She was unable to pay for the surgery so AACORP paid for the surgery done by Dr. Chochoy at (638) 383-3228. He is an expert with orthopedics and has fixed many a broken bone over the years. Thank you Chochoy!!!

We are in need of cleaning supplies – bleach, white vinegar, Pinesol, disinfectants, sponges, gloves dove soap and soap for washing blankets. We also are in need of baby blankets for the many kittens and puppies. Milk replacement is needed for the babies also. A big thank you to all that help.

Come visit us on Facebook and stop by the center for a little play time!!!
