HomeOutreachIntake Request Intake Request IntakeIDAt this time, we cannot accept animals except for cats. If you have an animal that is not a cat, please check this list of rescues in Arizona to see if someone else can help. https://www.dogloversdigest.com/arizona-rescue-shelters-and-organizations/ We promise to use your submitted information only for communications about this specific situation. Thank you for reaching out to us. We are sure you just want the best for the animal you found, and so do we. We consider all intake requests seriously and take in as many animals as possible. We are a never-kill shelter and can take in all ages of cats from birth to senior, assuming a foster is available. Please give us as much information as you can about the animal you have found. This will help us determine if we have a foster home available to accept the animal. We usually need a few days to secure a location for the animal. We may also ask you to care for the animal while we support you if there is not a foster available. If you have found multiple animals that belong to the same litter, you can put all of their information together on this form.Which of these situations applies best?* The animal is in distress and needs immediate help. The animal is in immediate danger (near a road, being threatened by an animal, or other hazard). The animal is in a relatively safe location. The animal was adopted from Saving One Life and I need to surrender it. I need to surrender my own animal that was NOT adopted from Saving One Life. Surrendered AnimalWe are not an emergency rescue. If your animal is in distress, please contact your veterinarian or other health professional. We usually need a week to secure placement for any animal we take in. If you cannot keep your animal for at least a week, please reach out to other resources. Please review all guidelines on our website before continuing. https://www.savingonelife.org/resources/I have read the guidelines and affirm that the following items are true of my pet.* Must be Spayed or Neutered Must be Current on Vaccinations Must be Tested and Negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS We Must Have All Veterinary Documentation Available and Given to Our Rescue at the Time of Surrender We Require a Minimum $50 Intake Fee to Help Care for Your Cat While it is With Us An Owner Surrender Contract Must be Signed at the Time of Intake What is the animal's name?* If you can remember it, what name did the animal have when it was part of the Saving One Life rescue? (It should be on the folder you received.) Why do you need to surrender this animal to us?*What steps have you taken to address the issues? Have you contacted us for ideas to help solve those issues?*We require a copy of the complete medical history of any animal surrendered to us from an adopter. Do you have these records ready for us?* Yes No I can get them in the next 24 hours. If there is an absolute deadline to the date you must surrender the animal, what is it? Please be aware that we often need about a week to secure a foster to accept the animal. MM slash DD slash YYYY What year did you adopt from us? (approximately is ok if you can't remember exactly)* What year did you adopt/find/purchase this animal? (approximately is ok if you can't remember exactly)* How old is the animal?* Your Location* Area of town you're in. Is there anything else we should know about the situation?Found AnimalWhen did you find this animal?* MM slash DD slash YYYY Where was the animal found?*Please be as specific as possible, including cross streets or other information we can access from viewing a map. Most young animals that are found by people are NOT abandoned. Often the mothers are out searching for food. This can take several hours to accomplish, during which time the babies are left alone. The best option, if you find a litter of small kittens who are left alone in a relatively safe location, is to simply watch and wait.What is the current status of the animal you've found:* The animal is trapped or inside a secure location. Examples of a secure location are an enclosed yard, home, air-cooled garage, office building, or a humane cage. If the animal is not in a location where it can be easily reached and assessed, please choose another option. I am working on trapping the animal or getting it into a secure location. I have watched and ensured no mother is returning to care for it, if the animal is a kitten. I have the time and ability to watch for a mother to return. I cannot trap the animal, but I am sure it is NOT being cared for. I cannot stay to watch, but I can check back later. I cannot monitor the situation. Additional Information NeededAre you currently a foster with Saving One Life?* Yes No Your Name* First Last Who is your mentor?* How many foster animals are currently in your care? What are their ages?* Phone*digits only pleaseEmail* Do you have any experience with fostering animals?* Yes No Maybe Do you have any experience with pets?* Yes No Do you have quarantine space?*Quarantine space is a spot where the animal can be completely enclosed without interaction with other pets. It should be a room or space with a door so that germs from the new animal are not easily spread to other areas of the home. Bathrooms and laundry rooms are great spots, as is a relatively empty spare bedroom. It should be free of areas where the animal could hide and not be accessed by you, and should be free of potential dangers to the animal (no easily accessed electrical cords or chemicals). Kennels and crates are not quarantine spaces since they allow for the exchange of germs. Yes No Possibly Further Care for the AnimalIf we support you, are you able to foster the animal until it is adopted?* Yes Maybe, but I need more information to be sure. No How long are you able to keep this animal, if needed?*up to 48 hours3 - 5 days1 week2 - 3 weeks1 monthUp to 3 monthsAs long as neededI cannot keep this animal for even a few hoursHave you taken the animal in to be scanned for a microchip?*Almost any vet's office or animal focused store will be able to scan the animal for a chip number. Yes No N/A Legally we are not able to take in any animal without allowing ample time for an owner to come forward. Have you posted this animal on at least 2 lost pet sites to facilitate its return to its owner? We must wait several days to allow the owner to respond.

What can Saving One Life do?We may be able to help. In order to assess the condition of the animal and find possible placement, we need to see a few photos. An image of the animal's face and one of its full body from the side while standing are most helpful. If there are any areas of concern on the animal's body, please send images of those as well. Please send photos of the animal (and the screenshots of the sites where you have posted "Found Animal" notices, if applicable) to Intake@SavingOneLife.org. Please use the subject line: Animal Intake Photos, YOUR NAMEHave you sent us your Photos?* I have emailed my PHOTOS to the address above. Have you sent us your Screenshots?* I have emailed my Found Animal SCREENSHOTS to the address above. We are NOT able to help at this time.

We do not have the ability to come out and help trap. You may now close this window.We are NOT able to help at this time.Please continue to monitor the situation. If it appears the animal needs help, please trap the animal in a safe location and contact us at that time. If you have found a mother and babies, as long as they remain in a relatively safe location, it is ok to leave them outside. If the mother is friendly, you can work on trapping her as long as everyone in the family is caught at the same time. If the mother is not friendly, we can more easily help kittens who are weaned from their mothers (around 6 weeks) so we ask you to contact us again when they are closer to that age.
