Peachy and more pets up for adoption in Phoenix-area shelters

Every year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Of those, about 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats.

Each week, The Arizona Republic highlights a handful of the many pets up for adoption at Valley shelters. To check the status of a specific animal, please contact the shelter directly.

It is definitely the height of cat and kitten season in the Valley and the Arizona Humane Society is certainly in the thick of it. With more than 900 felines in its care, 404 in-shelter and an additional 509 in Foster Hero homes to be exact, there is no better time than now to consider adding a lovable fur baby to your home.

Although there are so many kitties in AHS’ care, this sweet baby is feeling just Peachy thanks to all of the wonderful treatment she has received since being rescued. Like thousands of kittens who will make their way to AHS this summer, the beautiful nine-week-old Calico was found as a sick, underage orphan who needed medical treatment in May of this year.
