Who Are We?


Felix, Priscilla & Roz
Purradise Ranch, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization designed to provide a fur-ever home to cats whose owners are no longer able to care for them, due to health issues, death or foreclosure. Tax EIN: 45-366-5465.

Purradise Ranch is home to over 75 cats who roam freely in a one-acre, specially-fenced and loving environment for the rest of their lives.Our facilities include the Hacienda (Felix and Priscilla’s home), the Villa (Roz’s home), the Catty Shack (a 425 sq. ft. building just for the cats) and the Feral Hotel. Plus, we have a number of other places for the kitties to explore - a jungle gym, playhouse purrgola with tunnels, tower of fun and brand-new catios.

All of the cats are free to come and go as they please, except for a few kittens who live in the Hacienda - but they now have their own catio to enjoy our beautiful Arizona weather.

Priscilla shares her thoughts about life at the Ranch:

If I were a cat, this is exactly where I’d want to live. It truly is a ‘purradise’.”

Priscilla Dean has been in the non-profit world for over 15 years, serving on the Board of Directors for a non-profit ballroom dance group (Phoenix USA Dance) for six years, as founder and president for four years, as well as doing closed captioning work for WGBH Educational Foundation in Los Angeles.

Priscilla is the primary caretaker of the kitties of Purradise Ranch on a daily basis as well as videographer of the new “Adventures in Purradise” video series.

  Felix G. Ray served on the Board of Directors of Phoenix USA Dance as Vice President and Competition Chairman. He is in charge of the physical property of Purradise Ranch, building numerous “cool cat” creations.



Rosamond "Roz" Deason not only brings her lifelong love for cats to the heart of Purradise Ranch, she also has created beautiful quilts that she donates 100% of the proceeds to the kitties. Plus, she has written two books and is currently working on a third (check out our online book store). Not bad for being 94 years young!!
