Sun Cities 4 Paws Rescue is Experiencing Staffing and Volunteer Shortages


Animal shelters across the country are facing steep hurdles with staffing and volunteer shortages. Sun Cities 4 Paws Rescue is one of these shelters.

Due to limited support staff, the Peoria Shelter (10807 N 96th Ave, Peoria AZ 85345), will be suspending intakes and adoptions temporarily.

Adoptions will be done out of our Youngtown Adoption Center (11129 W Michigan Ave, Ste 1, Youngtown AZ 85363, open 10a-3p Tues-Sat), and our PetSmart locations in Lake Pleasant and Surprise. Lake Pleasant hours are 11a-4p Mon-Fri and 11a-5p Sat-Sun. Surprise hours are 11a-4p Friday and 11a-5p Saturday.

If you are interested in volunteering, please click here and fill out our mini application and our volunteer coordinator will contact you. If you are interested in career opportunities, please email your resume to office@4pawsrescue.org.

If you have any other questions regarding this release, please email info@4pawsrescue.org

4 Paws is no kill, non-profit, volunteer, tax-exempt organization. Our mission is to rescue cats in the Sun Cities area; to provide temporary care either in foster homes or in a permanent shelter for such animals, while facilitating their adoption in appropriate homes; to cooperate with other organizations dedicated to the rescue and care of homeless animals, and to work for humane solutions to the problem of pet overpopulation.

Income is derived from adoptions, memberships, thrift store sales, fundraising events, and bequests. For information on how you can help support us and save homeless animals call 623-876-8778
