AHS Pet of the Week -- Juniper

PHOENIX -- Juniper has spent most of her life enduring instead of living and after searching the streets for her missing family for months on end she was finally picked up by a Good Samaritan and brought to the Arizona Humane Society.

Preferring to nap on a cozy couch rather than in the bushes, Juniper has anxiously waited over a month for a loving family to adopt her and provide her with a life of luxury spent indoors. With age comes wisdom and being a distinguished 3-year-old, she has finally discovered that laser lights are impossible to catch. So, instead of looking foolish and attempting to pounce on the red light, she keeps her composure and intently watches from a distance.

Affectionate and sweet, she makes herself comfortable at the foot of her owner’s bed each night and kneads her paws readily to arrange the blankets just right and later she purrs herself to sleep. She spends her afternoons meandering around the house searching for a warm lap to curl up in and she loves chin rubs and ear scratches. When she’s held close she melts like butter in her owner’s arms.

Juniper hasn’t been around dogs, cats or children and will need a slow introduction to both two and four-legged family members.

She is waiting for his new family NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road, Phoenix. Her adoption fee is $20 since she is a member of the Lonely Heart’s Club. This adoption fee includes her spay surgery, vaccines, a colorful collar with an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam.
