AHS Pets of the Week -- Misty and Adi

Misty and Adi By Catherine Holland Misty and Adi By Catherine Holland

We have two absolutely wonderful animals this week. Their stories are so heartbreaking we just couldn't choose between them.

Misty is a ravishing, sleek jet black kitty who has had a very difficult journey in just the 2-years that she has been on this earth. Her previous owner acquired her through a friend who thought a cat would be an excellent birthday gift. Her new owner didn't really want her but kept her anyway, that is until she had a litter of kittens and in the end she and her babies became homeless at the shelter.

She and her kittens were sent to a foster home so Misty could raise them and she was a wonderful mother. She is now ready to give up motherhood and start a new life as a family housecat.

She is an affectionate cat with a calm, gentle and laid-back demeanor. She loves to talk but she isn’t obtrusive and she is rather soft-spoken with her quiet meow. Her charming personality has been overlooked by many feline fanciers for more than 87 days, and all she really wants is for someone to share her life with. She has been dealt an unfair hand in life and she is simply desperate to find a place to call home.

Misty is wonderful with other friendly felines as long as she is introduced slowly, but she hasn’t been around dogs or children.

She is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. Since she is a member of our Lonely Heart’s club, her adoption fee is just $10 if she is adopted on a Tuesday or a Friday as part of our August adoption specials (Tuxedo Tuesdays and Frisky Fridays.) This adoption fee includes her spay surgery, vaccines, a colorful collar with an AHS I.D. tag, a pet carrier and a follow-up veterinary exam. For more information about this pet, please call (602) 997-7586 ext. 1045 and ask for animal ID number A304718 or log on to www.azhumane.org.

A year ago today, Adi was barely hanging on and she was in critical condition as she was rushed to the Arizona Humane Society by an EAMT. Upon arrival the hospital team discovered that the wounded pup had fractured her leg after being hit by a car. The young Pit bull terrier mix was sent to foster care where she made a full recovery and thankfully, her leg didn't have to be amputated.

With adorable markings and an extremely affectionate personality, Adi was quickly adopted but after a year had passed her family realized they no longer had time for a dog and brought her back to AHS. The second time around has proven to be a bit more challenging for this one-year and three-month-old sweetheart and sadly she has become one of the loneliest residents at the shelter.

Although she appreciates being spoiled by the staff members with frequent play sessions, extra attention and treats whenever she pleases Adi won't be content until she finds a new family to call her own. With each day she spends as a homeless dog she becomes more worried, depressed and confused and she needs to find a home quickly before she looses all hope and gives up completely.

Adi has a lot to offer a new owner who promises to love her unconditionally. She is a loving and loyal dog who loves to lounge around on the couch, sleep at the foot of the bed, relax by the pool and soak up the scenery on her evening stroll through the park. She has a playful side that appears only when a stuffed toy is placed in front of her.

Adi has a firm grip on all of the basic commands and she is housetrained. She would do best in a home with older children and/or dogs that are just as playful as she is. A family meet and greet is required to ensure a good match.

She is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope facility located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue in Phoenix. Her adoption fee is only $35. This adoption fee includes her spay surgery, vaccines, a colorful collar and leash, an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam. For more information about this pet, please call 602-997-7586 ext. 2045 and ask for animal ID number A277172 or log on to www.azhumane.org.

Please note: These pets might have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter; however, the AHS has many more wonderful pets that also need loving homes. Please take a moment to meet some of the other homeless dogs, cats and other companion animals at the shelter! To see all our adoptable animals right now, www.azhumane.org/findapet
