The Arizona Humane Society has finally reached the point where it must turn away cats and kittens because the shelter is full. The society is asking people to consider holding on to felines they were planning to drop off for a few more days, or if possible to try and find homes for them.
According to a news release, more than 200 cats and kittens are awaiting adoption through the humane society. Kittens tend to be snatched up quickly, but cats, especially those at the shelter for over 30 days, are often passed over.
Cats like Bella, a 3-year-old tortie who has been at the humane society for over four months. And it's a shame because Bella would make a wonderful pet. She loves to snuggle, to perch in a window with a view, and to meander through the house searching for the perfect place to nap. She's great with kids, but not fond of dogs as her previous owner's boisterous retriever kept her living in fear upstairs.
Consider giving Bella and the other cats and kittens at the humane society a second chance. Adoptions of cats 10 months and older are just $5 Friday through Sunday. That includes spay/neuter surgery, follow-up vet exam, vaccinations, ID tag, collar and carrier.
If you're interested in adopting Bella, contact Petopia at Desert Sky Mall in Phoenix at (623) 245-6475 and reference ID #A341666. For more information about other cats and kittens available through the humane society, visit www.azhumane.org.
