Pet Of The Week

Homes sought for abandoned cat, Corhi/Chihuahua mix

The pleas for homes for two abandoned animals this week focuses on a cat abandoned in an Ahwatukee neighborhood and a friendly dog rescued from death row.

Denise Cote of Ahwatukee said the black cat was abandoned in a local neighborhood and “rescued by Cactus Cats before the coyotes could find her.”

She is fixed, has shots and can be met at her foster’s home.  

Email cactuscats@cox.net, or leave a message or text at 480-382-9151 and a volunteer will get back to you with details.

Cactus Cats Rescue is at Petco, 5011 E. Ray Road, Ahwatukee, every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with kittens and cats seeking homes.  All cats are tested, fixed and have shots.

The cats are also in the store’s cages every day and online at Petfinder.com/cactuscatsrescue.

Meanwhile, a home also is being sought for Rio, a handsome 2-year-old Corgi/Chihuahua mix.

He’s been described as a “fun pup” who is affectionate with people and likes to palce his paws on people’s knees, jump into a pile of blankets and roll on his back for a belly rub, and even does a vertical leap to get attention. The leap has earned him the nickname of “Mexican Jumping Bean.”

He likes walks and when he’s not exploring he likes to roll around in grass. Besides walking, he can keep pace with runners and joggers as well.

Rio rides well in cars and makes a good companion anywhere, even at outdoor cafes, according to RESCUE.

Interested people can fill out an application at www.azrescue.org
