Where I came from...
I was brought to SVAS because I did not get along with a less mature audience in my last home & am now looking for my forever home.

A little bit about me...
I am a very independent cat who likes things on my own time & my own way. This is very important to me.
When I get to know you, & when I choose to be in an affectionate mood, I will crawl into your lap & sometimes even give you kisses on your nose.
I am very adamant about having a scratch post to scratch on, so it is very important that you have one for me at your house so that I know where the proper scratching place is. I do best with mature audiences, so children in the home would not be a good fit for me.
I have a very high confidence level, so I need someone who understands that about me.
I DO NOT like sharing the spotlight with anyone else and it is important that I am the ONLY animal in the home.

My ideal home would include...
Someone who understands that truly understands I am an independent cat. An example being, I might be affectionate one moment & the next would like to be left alone. Someone that has prior high experience with independent cats is a MUST. Please be ready to explain your past experiences & how you handled & corrected them. Understanding my complicated habits & being familiar with cat language will set me up for success.
Someone who understands that I do best with a mature audience & that being around children is something that I am not interested in. I also do not get along with other animals, so being the only one in the household is necessary for me.
Someone who will be able to exercise me daily to make sure I reach my goal of a healthy weight. Keeping me mentally & physically enriched is important.

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
