Facts about Ava

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Ava is an adorable brown and white spotted tabby with soul-searching yellow eyes. Ava is a sweet girl whose area of expertise is making her humans feel like the most important people in the world. She has years of experience rubbing her face on your legs to ask for the petting that she so loves. If you’re off your game and don’t take the hint, Ava has a solution for that – she’ll roll over to more clearly communicate her petting request. Once her petting request is granted, her people are rewarded with very loud purring!


This affectionate gal has a shy, quiet nature that causes her to be happiest in calm, mellow environments. When not enjoying pets from her people, Ava spends her free time alternating between explorations and lounging in kitty condos. This lovable kitty was pretty sad and confused when her former owners moved and left her behind. Ava could really use a new family that will boost her spirits and confidence, letting her know beyond a shadow of a doubt that she will always be a cherished member of the family.

About RESCUE

About Our Rescue Group...

RESCUE is a registered non-profit volunteer based animal rescue organization located in Maricopa County. RESCUE has no central facility and is volunteer run. Our focus is on the "kill lists." We were founded in 1995, and with the support of our volunteers and our community, we have found homes for over 11,000 dogs and cats. Our motto is for every animal adopted, we are back to rescue another. We depend on the community for our support and offer a variety of satisfying ways for you to get involved in our mission to end the killing of the orphaned dogs and cats. Please consider adopting, volunteering or donating.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. We are at various special events around the valley. Please see our Upcoming Events section on our website for further information. We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to some of our wonderful animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an online application, have an interview with a Matchmaker, if we are in philosophical alignment, set up a meet and greet and if all goes well finalize the adoption. Our service fee for dogs is $150 and $125 for cats. All our dogs and cats are spayed and neutered prior to adoption.
