The Hermitage Cat Shelter
Fudge is a 2-year-old domestic short-haired tuxedo. She was picked up by Pima Animal Care Center as a stray and the Hermitage then rescued her. She’s sweet, lovable and cute and funny, but she’s not so thrilled with all the feline roommates. She really wants her own home. She is spayed, wellness checked and microchipped.
See Fudge at The Hermitage Cat Shelter, 5278 E. 21st St., which is open 1-4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The $55 adoption fee covers current vaccines, microchip, trial pet insurance and lots of cat care information. Call Monica at 571-7839 or visit hermitagecatshelter.org for details.
Patch – Humane Society
Here’s a lovable little senior dog in real need of a special home. Patch, an unclaimed stray Lhasa Apso, is about 10 years old, and it’s hard telling how long he’s been on his own. With missing teeth and neglected basic health care, this little charmer seems to have been overlooked for quite a while. But Patch is a survivor who found his way to the Humane Society and is now on the road to a better life.
Because he is a senior, Patch requires a special person to look after his needs on a daily basis. He requires daily eye drops and medication to help him feel better and will need regular vet and home care for the rest of his life. An understanding person who will accept him as he is and give him plenty of love and attention will be rewarded with a lot of love and affection from this sweet guy.
Patch is one of several “Special Needs” pets now waiting for their second chance. Visit them at the Humane Society’s Adoption Center, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. Hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. For more information call 327-6088 or visit hssaz.org
Troy – Casa de los Gatos
Troy is a handsome year-old male Flame Point Siamese with a sweet and fun personality. He loves to play with toys but will also slow down to enjoy quiet cuddle time with people. Troy’s adoption fee includes neutering, vaccines, tests, microchip and a free vet exam.
