Unlikely Duo Looking for a Home for the Holidays
When 16-week-old Jenny, a Tortie, and 10-week-old Forrest, a Chihuahua, got turned into the Arizona Humane Society through one of our alternative placement emergency programs it was clear that they were the best of friends. Described as “perfect with each other” from their foster mom, they are a typical puppy and kitten with an overabundance of energy… that they take out on one another. They play hide and seek, fetch and chase one another and even try to eat each other’s food, a habit that their foster mom is trying to break. And when it is time to settle in for a nap or bedtime, they have to be by each other’s side. After weeks in a foster home to gain weight in order to be spayed/neutered the two are now ready for adoption… together. As part of the Buddy System, a program that ensures the two will stay together, their adoption fee is two for the price of one, just $250, and includes their spay/neuter surgeries, first vaccines and free follow-up vet exams with VCA Animal Hospitals. Jenny and Forrest have also shared their foster home with a large dog and do well with him, although Jenny was a bit scared at first so like all pets who enter a new home, they will need time to get accustomed to other pets. For anyone looking to add both a kitten and a puppy to their home, Jenny and Forrest will be up for adoption Wednesday, December 10 at 11 a.m. at AHS’ Campus for Compassion – 1521 W. Dobbins Road, Phoenix, AZ 85041. For people who are unable to adopt this Holiday season, but want to make a difference in the life of a homeless pet, they can still Stuff a Stocking for a Pet in Need.
