Where I came from...
I came to Sun Valley in at finding my forever home, & the wonderful people have taken the time to get to know me to help me achieve that.

A little bit about me...
I am a very independent lady & am more of a roommate, rather than a cuddle bug. If I want affection from you, I will come and seek it out from you, NOT the other way around. I live life by my own terms.
I have absolutely beautiful golden eyes that are a unique quality. I've been told there's not many kitties with golden eyes like mine!
I do not like loud noises, thunderstorms, or quick & sudden movements. I am a huntress & enjoy playing with fuzzy mice toys and feather wand toys the most. Playing with the wand toy can help you bond with me.
I absolutely LOVE to bird watch out the window & also watch the rain water flow down the window. Running water is very
interesting to me to watch.

My ideal home would include...
Someone who truly understands what it entails to have an independent cat. Someone who is cat experienced, & who is looking for more of a "roommate" rather than a cuddly cat. I am NOT a first time cat.
Someone who is willing to open up their home to me & to let me live out my life there, even if I do not end up being an incredibly affectionate cat. I like affection on my own terms, & will give it to you when I feel it.
A quiet home, with low traffic, & no children in the home would be the best for me. Loud noises & much commotion makes me nervous, so a quiet and stable home would be the best for me.
Someone who is willing to play with me interactively (with wands & mice) to help bond with me and to build our relationship.

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
