These cuties in metro Phoenix need a home. And you can help them.
If you and your family have been looking for a furry companion, here are some adoptable pets at local shelters.
Whitefoot and Blackfoot
When their elderly owner became ill and went into a hospice care facility, these two Siamese brothers were uprooted from their home and ended up sharing a kennel at the Arizona Humane Society. With a strong bond, it’s not uncommon to see these two mature, low-key 12-year-olds curled up together in a cat bed with paws and tails intertwined. Blackfoot is the mastermind who orchestrates plans to take over the world (or at least convince you to give him treats every time he sits near his food dish by meowing). Whitefoot on the other paw, is more of the hopeless romantic type who craves companionship and will purr on your lap all afternoon and insists on sleeping in bed with you at night.
These two regal felines would appreciate a quite home with older kids and, if given time to warm up, they are good with other cats.
Meet this adorable duo on Sunday at noon at the Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix. They’re on the buddy system and their adoption fee together is $50 which includes their neuter surgeries and vaccinations. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal numbers A549731-31.
Ronald is what staff refer to as a play group Rock Star! At three years of age, Ronald is playful, energetic and looking for other dogs who share his exuberant play style. He may be a bit much for an older dog, but would be great for a younger dog his size. Ronald is a neutered male American Bulldog mix who came to the shelter as a stray. Weighing in at nearly 100lbs, this boy is big but sweet.
If you’d like to visit and adopt Ronald, he is at MCACC’s West Valley Animal Care Center (2500 S. 27th Avenue) in Phoenix. His $20 adoption fee includes his neuter, vaccinations and County dog license.
Silkie is an attractive and ravishing Norwegian Forest Cat with unique markings and a splendidly delightful personality. The former housecat somehow ended up as a stray, and was found living behind a gas station one rainy day in February. The affectionate cat purred the entire time veterinarians examined her, and Silkie was treated for wounds and a kitty cold at the Arizona Humane Society.
The 9-year-old is looking for a cushy lifestyle and a new home complete with a comfy cat beds, large windows to bask in the sun, and warm laps to curl up on. She’ll greet you at the door when you come home and twirl around your feet with her fluffy tail held high, displaying her fondness and excitement for those she loves most. She enjoys having her long soft fur brushed and occasionally, when she is feeling frisky, she will chase down a laser light. But for the most part, this gorgeous diva is your typical lazy housecat who appreciates downtime and having hoovering human servants to dote on her.
Meet Silkie at the Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue in Phoenix. Her adoption fee is $40 and includes her spay surgery and vaccinations. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal number A220569.
Nothing exotic, nothing fancy, nothing unusual, Whiskey is a run-of-the-mill dark brown tabby with orange highlights, but what a beautiful face. She is a 2-3 year old whose owner was moving out of state and was not able to keep her in her new quarters. Such a sad state of affairs for both kitty and owner. She likes to be brushed and petted and bat at dangling objects. Whiskey will tolerate being picked up, but gets pretty vocal about it….a female who likes to make herself heard! She is living in a room with lots of other cats and seems to get on well with them. Most likely she would prefer to be in a quiet home.
Visit her at Sun Cities 4 Paws shelter, 10807 N. 96th Avenue, 623-773-2246 after 10 a.m.; adoptions Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10-3 p.m
