Cat of the week
Lynx Point Siamese Mix
Jada is a very special girl. Who did not have the best start in life. She was confined to a small bathroom for nearly a year. Because she lived in a home with a toddler who was too rough with her. Therefore, she did not trust humans when she was brought to her foster's home. It actually took her 3 months to trust her foster mom enough to allow her to touch her. However, now she loves attention from her foster mom. Although, she still does not quite trust her foster dad. We also do not recommend a home with small children. We feel she needs a quiet home with a very patient person who will allow her to adjust on her own terms.
Dog of the week
Panama and his 5 siblings were left in basket in front of a very poorly funded Shelter in Mexico. Upon his arrival in his foster home she noted he had a slight head tilt. Therefore, he was taken to the vet the next day. The vet ruled out the obvious causes, and recommend he see specialist to rule out neurological issues. His exam by the Neurologist indicates he has a possible inner ear issue, and believes he may be hard of hearing. We have determined he can hear slightly, although has an issue determining which directions sounds such as whistles and such come from. However, it does not slow him down one bit... He is still playful and keeps up with his siblings. Loves to eat, and has doubled in weight since arriving in his foster home. He is absolutely adorable and loving.
He will be available at the PetSmart in Oro Valley -- 10625 N. Oracle Road, from 12 to 4 PM Saturday and Sunday. His adoption fee is $250.00 which includes his neuter, age-appropriate vaccines, microchip, and de-worming. Our adoption fee also includes a free vet visit from our list of participating vets. **Please note: We do not have, nor do we accept online applications. Therefore, an inquiry though Petfinder is not considered an application, nor does it place a hold on the Animal. All our adoptions are conducted in Person at the above-mentioned PetSmart.
