Meet Duke!

AGE:  Duke is a handsome 3-year-old boy who is lucky to be alive.  He was dumped in Jacksonville, but found by a Friends of the Animal Shelter volunteer, who took him in for several weeks to allow Duke to rest and recuperate in their warm, loving home.

PERSONALITY:  It took a while before Duke trusted humans again, but thanks to the volunteer’s patience and dedication, he is at the Shelter, ready for his new forever home.

HIGHLIGHTS:  Duke is still a little reserved, but he is becoming more and more social.  He likes to be petted, soft talk, and spending quiet time with anyone who give him attention.  And, he’s playful when he feels safe.  Duke looks forward to beginning the New Year with a family that understands his difficult beginning and is willing to give him the time he needs to adjust.  He will be a marvelous kitty companion.

AVAILABLE:  At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m. weekends.

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