Facts about Spice

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
This beautiful girl arrived at one of our feral colonies. We knew right away that she was not feral, as she cried and talked and looked right into our eyes, very trusting, pleading to get out of that trap! When we stroked her leg, she rubbed her head on the trap. As soon as we let her out safely in a room, she purred and climbed in our laps.

This tame kitty once had a home, and had already been spayed, but sadly she had no identification, and we've been unable to locate her previous family. Since the area in which she was found is pretty remote, it's likely that she's another victim of abandonment.

Spice is quite stressed being with so many other cats and dogs, but is extremely affectionate when she's visited the vet a couple of times. We suspect she needs a home, even a foster, who has no other pets, or perhaps only one. Are you that special person?

She has been tested for FIV and FeLV, both negative, confirmed spayed, and vaccinated. She's in good health, has good litter pan manners, eats and drinks well. She's not a demanding kitty, and probably would make an excellent lap cat in a quiet home.

Please submit an online adoption application if you would like to meet Spice.

We only adopt within the Phoenix metropolitan area. If you are out of the area, we recommend searching Petfinder for a pet waiting in a shelter near you, by clicking here.

All of our animals are homeless when they come to us. We don't know their history or pedigree. Breed and descriptions are our best guess, based on appearance and sometimes personality traits. We cannot guarantee their information.

If you are unable to adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to help us continue to care for cats such as this one. We do not recover any costs associated with spaying and neutering, and often treating illness or injury, and the lifelong feeding of many other cats who are not as lucky as this one.

Thank you for your interest in helping homeless animals.

About Animal Loving Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

ALF is based in Tempe, Arizona. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization who provides TNR (trap, neuter, return), and life-long care of feral and community cats. We serve as an advocate for the ferals, and a link to the rescue community.

Animal Loving Friends believes that we - as a rescue community - will never adopt our way out of overpopulation and euthanasia; the root cause of the problem has to be fixed: unaltered free-roaming animals. The number of births we prevent by spaying and neutering homeless cats directly contributes to adoption achievements, by keeping approximately 1,000 animals every year out of adoption and kill shelters. This means there is space for 1,000 more to be saved by adoption groups. It is commonly stated that every animal you adopt saves two, the one you adopted and one more who can take the available space. Every cat that ALF fixes, saves 9 more from facing danger and the likelihood of dying a sad and lonely death.

On rare occasions, we foster tame animals while they await adoption. All of our adoptable pets are tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered. We strive to find loving, responsible forever homes for pets, so that they will never know hunger or danger again. We do not have a shelter facility and do not accept animals from the public.

Overpopulation of homeless animals leads to the needless suffering and deaths of over 4 million animals each year. Please spay and neuter all your pets and urge your friends and family to do the same. If you are feeding stray cats, please contact a low-cost clinic today to schedule spay and neuter appointments.

If you'd like to help, or donate food or vet services, please email alfrescue @ for information. Donations are tax-deductible.
