PHOENIX – A kitten that was thrown from a moving vehicle along 43rd Avenue and Bell Road in October is ready to be adopted.
A good Samaritan witnessed the incident and called Arizona Humane Society's Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™. The then 5-week-old kitten was taken to AHS' Second Chance Animal Hospital™.
The kitten was not seriously injured and was aptly named Lucky. He spent six weeks in Arizona Humane Society's foster care program and is ready for his forever home.
The 11-week-old black kitten will be available for adoption Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Arizona Humane Society's Sunnyslope Shelter, 9226 N. 13th Ave., Phoenix. Due to potential adopter interest in Lucky, AHS will host a drawing for his adoption, according to spokeswoman Bretta Nelson.
Lucky's adoption fee is $75 and includes his neuter surgery, first vaccinations, free follow-up vet exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, ID tag and carrier.
Potential adopters who have questions regarding Lucky or his adoption can call 602-997-7585, ext. 2045, or arrive at the shelter prior to the adoption time.
