Our Mission

As a Community-Oriented 501(C)3 Private Organization in Green Valley AZ.

Reduce community cat overpopulation (feral/stray/free-roaming) through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) in order to create a healthier environment for our communities.
Educate the public on the importance of spay/neuter and health for companion animals.

Who We Are

Paws Patrol began in early 2006 with a founding committee of seven qualified animal rescuers, each having at least several years of experience. All committee members had actively participated as volunteers, board members, and/or directors in other animal rescue groups.

Our Vision

To compassionately and responsibly create a more humane world for animals.

How we calculate our live release rate.
  1. Count the total live outcomes (adoptions, outgoing transfers/working cats®/return to colony cats)
  2. Divide that by the total outcomes (includes shelter euthanasia)
  3. Annual Live Release Rate = ((1)/(2))*100
The Live Release rate does not include owner/guardian requested euthanasia which were unhealthy and untreatable and cats that died or were lost in shelter care.
