About Us

Saving AZ Animals is Our Mission

Grateful Hearts Rescue

We are a humble family owned and ran Arizona non-profit rescue. When we have animals
and love them unconditionally we know the impact they have in our lives. The felines at
Grateful Hearts Rescue get a chance to share their love with others.

Our Mission

Grateful Hearts Animal Rescue is a 501 (c)(3) rescue whose goal is to reduce the overwhelming number of homeless, abused, and vulnerable feline friends in our community. This includes using humane Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) methods to reduce overpopulation, collaborating with local shelters and vets, assisting the community and saving those abandoned felines on the streets. Our rescue is foster based which means every feline receives the medical attention, vetting, care and love they need before being adopted. We believe these felines provide us with joy, happiness, laughter and unconditional love. 

We are a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to restoring
each cat and kitten under our care to physical and emotional
health as they await their loving furever home.

As of June 2022, Grateful Hearts Animal Rescue and PetSmart have partnered to allow adoption events and meet-&-greets at two PetSmart locations.

Our History

Many of our volunteers have been helping in the cat community for years. They often spend many hours trapping, transporting, caring for their feline friend and many times have the long term commitment of feeding those on the streets. They often use their resources financially to cover the spay and neuter of community cats. The need is increasingly great with the devastating number of felines left behind by their owners, the Return-To-Field or RTF program implemented in most shelters and the staggering number of kittens in our community. We are here to support those volunteers committed to helping animals on the streets.

Until one has loved an animal, a
part of one’s soul remaines
