Adopting a pet is a great thing to do! Giving a dog or cat (puppy or kitten) a second chance can be a wonderfully rewarding experience. Unfortunately sometimes it can be quite frustrating when things don’t go as expected. Here are five things to consider before adopting a pet:
Marshall is a wonderful and loving 5-year-old, tri-color Beagle. He is very affectionate and loves lots of attention. He gets along well with other dogs and is very good with children as well. He loves to play with his toys and is always ready to play ball. He is house broken and would be a great fit for almost any household.
Junipurr is a young adult short-haired black and white kitty with wonderful markings. She purrs and purrs and purrs. She’s not a kitten so isn’t too crazy with energy, but she does like to be silly and play. She’s been defined as “sweet” and enjoys spending her days showing her people how much they are appreciated. Junipurr would do best in a home with another cat that is quiet ... and she seems to enjoy the company of male cats. Junipurr has been tested FELV/FIV negative, altered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and housetrained.
LOS ANGELES — If a scared dog bolts from home, it's likely to run as fast and far as it can. But if a house cat panics, it's more likely to slink away and stop at the first good hiding place it finds.
In one year of working together to encourage the community to fix, adopt and save homeless pets, seven animal welfare organizations in Maricopa County say they’ve seen positive results.
Selena, a beautiful 9-month-old cat was rescued from an abandoned apartment building. Since being rescued, she has been noted as being the sweetest, most lovable, laid-back cat that gets along incredibly well with other cats. Selena, being an adorable orange and white kitty, enjoys playing with toys and her volunteer friends at PetSmart.
Louie is a super affectionate and talkative red and white cat. He’s tall with long white legs and is quite handsome. He’s a bit shy or cautious with other cats — but he’d be fine with one friendly, mellow cat or even better as the king of his castle as your only cat.
Boo is a 7-year-old male Beagle who was rescued from the shelter by Arizona Beagle Rescue (AZBR). He was extremely overweight and had lots of sores on his skin and paws. Boo has become one of AZBR’s “Biggest Loser’s” and has dropped 20 pounds. He loves to go on walks, which should help get the last few stubborn pounds off quickly. Boo would do best on a low-calorie, grain-free dog food due to his skin allergies. He gets along well with other dogs, but would do best with older kids. Boo is housebroken and knows how to use a dog door. He would make an excellent family pet.

Sunny is an energetic and quite affectionate boisterous boy kitty. He has a strong, muscular and sturdy build. He likes to play, and is quite outgoing and would do well with another cat who enjoys playing. Sunny needs an owner who will appreciate his loving nature, and can handle this tough little guy. He is fixed, has all his shots, and would love to meet you.
Daphne begs for treats politely, before breakfast. She is a very affectionate and friendly laid-back part Siamese cat. She is best solo or with another laid-back cat or well behaved dog. Her hobbies are lap time and being petted and groomed. She is approximately 10 years old. Sadly her owners are leaving Arizona and unable to take her.
The city of Phoenix passed a somewhat controversial new ordinance Wednesday that bans all pet stores in the city of Phoenix from selling animals from inhumane sources.
Wobbly was born outside and caught a cold as a kitten, which the vet says affected his brain and he now has a little tremor. Other than this, Wobbly is a normal kitten enjoying wrestling and playing with his foster’s gentle adult cats. He is so cute to watch. He loves to be held and will purr to thank you. He is fixed, tested, and has all his shots.
Jameson is a very handsome male Shepherd mix, about a year old. He was found as a stray. Jameson was never claimed so now he’s available for adoption. He is a big boy with lots of energy. He’s still very “puppy-ish” so whomever shares their home with Jameson should know sitting all day watching TV just won’t satisfy him. He is a wonderful guy that loves people, however, he should be an only dog. During the time he’s been at the shelter he’s been “barky” when he sees or meets other dogs, and he does not want to share food or toys with his canine friends. He is living at the Friends for Life adoption center in downtown Gilbert, 143 W. Vaughn Ave. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.
Wanda is a 4-year-old beautiful Lemon Beagle that was a shelter dog rescued by Arizona Beagle Rescue. She was a bit chubby but has lost a few pounds and is now pretty close to her target weight. Wanda is housebroken, gets along with other dogs, rides great in a car, walks great on a leash and can use the doggie door. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house and snooze wherever she happens to be. If she likes you, she will give you her paw and loves to give kisses. Wanda is timid around men so it will take her some time to warm up and be comfortable. She would be a faithful companion for any family.
Tang has a mellow personality and will get along with other laid-back cats. He never gets in trouble. His life is not complete without a squeaky mouse toy, perching on high places, and rolling in fresh litter.
Whizbeedit is a domestic short-haired brown Tabby female kitten. She has lots of energy, but also likes to be held and be pet by her people. Whizbeedit expresses her appreciation with lots of purring. Whizbeedit and her litter mate are fostered in the home of a Friends for Life Animal Rescue volunteer, where much love and attention is doled out. Whizbeedit is just waiting to be a part of your home. She is shown for adoption at the PetSmart at Baselien Road and Stapley Drive, right of the U.S. 60 on Saturdays and Sundays. All cats are Felv/FIV tested negative, altered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.
Today JB the Bernese Mountain Dog is an award winner and a professional model, but at 8 months old he was a bullied puppy whose owners couldn’t keep him around.
Caramel is a sweet 11-year-old Beagle girl whose owner moved away and left her behind. She is so easygoing and very obedient. She likes to just hang out, take naps and sniff around the yard. Caramel gets along well with other dogs and children. Since she is a bit overweight she would benefit from more exercise and less food. Dieting is hard and Caramel is hungry so if there is more than one dog in the home it would be best to feed her separately.
