Where I came from…
I was found looking for love with my momma and siblings and was brought to SVAS to find my forever home. Since I came here as a baby, the good people at the shelter have taken the time to get to know me more to help fit me with the best home possible.
A little bit about me…
I love to play all day ever day with all sorts of toys and wands. I am a kitten so I have a lot of energy to work off.
I am a very easy going and outgoing girl with cats and dogs alike, and would do wonderful in a home with either or both of those.
I sometimes still suckle on my sister’s shoulder, and when she is not around, sometimes I suckle on my cat condo. I am a kitten so it is up to you to teach the rules and regulations of your household and what you expect out of my behavior.
I am very curious and need to know all of the answers to life’s questions, so I am constantly exploring and getting into things.
Because I have a long and beautiful coat, regular grooming is required to keep my coat shiny and mat free.
My ideal home would include…
Someone who has all the time for a kitten. I have a lot of energy and need someone that is going to be able to keep up with me and help keep my energy level down through lots of activities for me.
Someone who has the patience to teach me what they expect out of their household and how to act accordingly in their household. I am a kitten, so I am very open to learning how you expect me to act if you are patient.
Someone who will be able to spend the time needed in my grooming to assure that my coat stays silky smooth and tangle free! Brushing me at LEAST 3 times a week will help me stay fresh and clean.
Ideally, I would love to go home with a respectful dog. I am very curious about dogs and sniff and follow them around as long as they are respectful of me. I really enjoy being around other kittens as well.

About Sun Valley Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Sun Valley Animal Shelter, Inc., is an Arizona nonprofit corporation with 501(c)3 status which operates a No-Kill shelter in Glendale, Arizona, generally serving the western portion of the Phoenix metropolitan area. The organization was founded in 1991 by a group of Sun City area residents as a foster-based program to provide adoption opportunities for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. The current facility was built in 1995 and can house 100+ dogs and 100+ cats. The organization receives no government funding and is supported by income from our thrift store profits, adoption fees, membership dues, donations and bequests. We recently received a grant to assist in the construction of a new medical/surgical center at the facility.

The animals taken into our care are housed in a clean, secure environment and are spayed/neutered, microchipped, given all necessary shots and a physical exam. Dedicated volunteers are invaluable in assisting with the daily care and nurturing of our dogs and cats prior to finding a loving home. We are proud to note that in the last several years we have increased adoptions from approximately 300 animals per year to over 1000 animals per year.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sun Valley Animal Shelter is located at 7150 N. 110th Avenue in the City of Glendale, AZ 85307. Our business hours are Tuesdays thru Sundays from 11:00am till 4:00pm. We do participate in a local Petsmart on the weekends for our dogs to be viewed. We also participate in various events throughout the Greater Phoenix area that those who allow dogs to be shown we bring for viewing. If not, we are always available at an event to showcase those adoptable pets that are available.

Our Adoption Process...

Please be advised we only adopt to AZ residents. We make a commitment to all of our animals. So while we appreciate your interest, we ask that you be a local resident to adopt. We do not always know the full background of each animal and sometimes personalities are not fully shown until a few days in the home. If for whatever reason you cannot keep the animal, we appreciate the animal being returned to our facility. It is costly and time consuming to return an animal from out of state. Please check your local animal shelter to find a forever friend near your area.
We do have adoption fees that are reflective to our adoptable cats and dogs. They will slightly vary depending on the cat or dog. However most of the adoptable pets have the same adoptable fee. We ask that any prospective adopter to come to our location and complete an adoption application. This will be reviewed by a qualified adoption counselor who will sit and visit to interview the adopter on what they are looking for to place the adoptable pet in a forever home. Once approved for adoption, there is paperwork to complete and the adoptable cat or dog will be able to go home that day
