Category: Pet of The Week

Meet Calypso!

AGE: Calypso is a sensitive 1-year-old Shepherd mix who was living on the streets and is looking for a warm, secure home to call her own.

PERSONALITY: She is a real a sweetheart once she warms up, and will be content sitting next you as you build trust with her.  She plays well with other dogs and would benefit greatly from having a doggie playmate.

HIGHLIGHTS: Calypso will need a patient adopter who will slowly introduce her to new things and give her sense of home. She is treat-motivated, takes them gently and knows how to sit! Continuing her training will help you build a close bond.

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

COST: Adoption fee: $120, and includes a free in-home, one-hour training and a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office.  Calypso is spayed.

Meet Kit Cat!

AGE: Kit Cat, king of the jungle, is a big 7-year-old ginger boy who has been patiently waiting at the shelter for almost three months for his new home!

PERSONALITY: He is picky about his feline friends, but had a great relationship with one of the other cats in Kitty Korner who was adopted, so it’s possible he’ll be OK as a 2nd cat … but most likely will want to be the Alpha cat.  Kit Cat has a sweet heart and likes attention in the form of gentle pets, scritches and the occasional one-on-one discussions; and he’s polite about letting you know when he’s done.

HIGHLIGHTS: Kit Cat has spent a lot of time outside in the Kitty Korner Catio, stretched out on a ledge, soaking up sun, but is equally happy inside, curled up on his cozy pillow. He’s a handsome dude who sure would like a home of his own with a patient cat-savvy person who will give him plenty of time to adjust and who won’t take it personally when he wants some alone time.  Come down to the shelter to meet his royal highness.

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

COST: Adoption fee: $50, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office.  Kit Cat is neutered.

Meet Collette!

AGE: Colette is a sweet, 9-year-old, engagingly social, ginger and white shorthair kitty, who is a real charmer.

PERSONALITY: She is long-limbed and lively (possibly a dancer in her former life?). She is an affectionate girl who loves attention and is happy to reward you with head butts and purrs.

HIGHLIGHTS: If you are looking for a loving kitty with a heart of gold who will make each day a bit brighter, then Colette is your girl!

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

COST: Collette’s adoption fee is only $50, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Collette is spayed.

Meet Gucci!

AGE: Gucci is a fun, active girl, who is about 2 years old and weighs 50 pounds. She’s a playful, curious pup who will do best in a home with a large well-fenced yard, since she loves exploring and, if left unattended, may go check out the neighborhood on her own. She has done well with other friendly dogs, who enjoy romping and wrestling, like her, but her play style can be a bit much for calmer dogs.

PERSONALITY: This friendly girl is currently in foster care, where she’s learning better manners when meeting new people, because she likes to jump up and kiss faces. Because she’s a strong and determined dog, she would do best in a home with older children or one without children and should meet all family members prior to adoption. Although Gucci is smart and a quick learner, she gets bored easily and her curiosity can get her into trouble. Fortunately, she’s crate-trained, housetrained, takes treats gently, and wants to please.

HIGHLIGHTS: Once she gets some exercise, she will settle down and can be quite affectionate. She recently re-injured a back leg, which has a luxating patella, but it hasn’t slowed her down. She still loves to run, likes going for walks, and is learning not to pull so hard on the leash. To prevent arthritis from setting in to her injured leg, she’s on a daily regimen of glucosamine and anti-inflammatory medication.

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends. Contact her foster mom, Barbara, at 541-890-2308, or call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654

COST: Gucci’s adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor, and includes a free one-hour in-home training, plus a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Gucci is spayed.

Meet Bella!

AGE: Bella is an appealing 2-year-old brown Tabby and Tortie girl. She has been at the shelter for three months and is SO ready to find her real home.

PERSONALITY: Bella was pretty timid at first because everything was new and she was scared. Now though, after discovering that the people she sees every day really care about her, she has become more social and open to petting.

HIGHLIGHTS: She enjoyed having a little girl read to her at the shelter’s “Read to a Kitty” day, and she LOVES playing with wand toys! Bella likes to be approached slowly, and so far she’s not much of a lap cat, but that could change with cat-savvy people in a new home where she is given lots of time to adjust. If you have a loving quiet home for beautiful Bella, she might just blossom into your new best friend.

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

COST: Bella’s adoption fee is only $50, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Bella is spayed.
