4 cats, 4 dogs eager to find homes in Chandler

Chandler residents looking for a pet might want to consider the four dogs and four cats looking for homes at two rescue shelters in the area.

Three of the dogs and three cats are now at Friends for Life Animal Shelter. People can inquire about the cats by emailing FFLcats@azfriends.org and the dogs at FFLdogs@azfriends.org. The phone number is the same for either, 480-497-8296 and the website is azfriends.org.

Spokeswoman Jannelle Cosgriff said Laney “might be tiny but she has tons of love to share.” The dog is currently being fostered with two other dogs, with whom she gets along, Cosgriff said.

“She is an active dog that likes to play a lot with the other dogs and has a nice play style,” she added. “Laney walks well on a leash and is house trained and doggy door trained. She knows basic commands of sit, stay, and lay down. Laney is kennel trained and does well left alone in the house. Laney spends her week with her foster family but is brought to Friends for Life’s adoption center on Saturdays where you can find her patiently waiting to be adopted.”

Laney is spayed, up to date on all shots, micro chipped, licensed and heart worm negative. Her adoption fee is $195.

Stash is a male, domestic short-haired cat about 3 years old. “He is a gentle boy that likes his human’s attention,” said Cosgriff, adding, “He gets along fine with his kitty roommate at the adoption center but does expect to be the center of attention and if not, he’ll surely tell you about it with a few ‘meows.’” He has, however, learned to be somewhat patient when sharing the affections of his humans. Stash loves to play with small, plush toys.”

Like all cats at Friends for Life, Laney is altered, dewormed, tested for FELV/FIV, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $95.

Cosgriff also spoke of Jefferson, a 7-yearold border collie/cattle dog that “loves to hang out and enjoys a good play session. He seems to do best with dogs his own size. Volunteers at the adoption center believe he would not do well in a home with cats.” His fee is $95.

Margo, a 5-year-old cat, is a big hit with volunteers, Cosgriff said, because “she is a fun-loving, all-around great cat that also has extra toes. Margo likes to play, likes to talk and likes affection from her people. Her favorite place is by your side. She may be good with other cats but might prefer to be alone. She has lived with small dogs and children in the past.” Her adoption fee is $5.

Sid the Kid is a year-old mixed-breed dog “will make a great hiking/jogging/walking buddy once the heat subsides,” Cosgriff said. “Sid will need an active home as he still has got some puppy playfulness left in him. He learns new commands quickly and easily, and would love to show off for you.” His adoption fee is $195.

Another cat at the shelter is Malibu, a mixed domestic short-haired Lilac Lynx Point about 5 years old. “If you’re looking for a handsome, laid-back cat to hang out with then Malibu might be your guy,” Cosgriff said. “This handsome fellow is easy going and enjoys the company of people.”

Although Malibu tested positive for FIV, Berry said “he is otherwise very healthy. He can go on to live a long, healthy and happy life with this diagnosis.” His adoption fee also is $95.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Berry at Arizona Rescue said Missy “is a sweet, dainty girl with gorgeous yellow-green eyes that seem to stare right into the depth of your soul. Shy at first, it doesn’t take long for her to stroll over to greet you and request some affection.

“Missy loves attention from her people and is quite content to fill the vacant spot in your lap where she would be very happy to let you pet her all day long,” she added. “Missy seems fine with other friendly kitties.”

Arizona Rescue also is hoping to find a home for Harry, “an adorable young, active boy looking for a home to call his own. He knows basic commands, loves going for walks or runs and he plays a great game of catch too. Harry is a cuddlebug and never met a belly rub that he would say no to.”

“Harry is still a young dog,” Berry added. “He will need daily morning runs/long walks to help burn off some of his energy. He doesn’t appear to have had much socialization as he seems unfamiliar with certain noises and didn’t realize that end tables are not perches to stand on. The good news is that he is a great student.”
