PHOENIX - Although the Arizona Humane Society has halted their intake of cats for the majority of July, they haven't stopped saving the countless animals that need help on the street.
The Arizona Humane Society's kennels are completely full and they're finding it very difficult to house so many animals.
An 11-week-old kitten was pulled from the trash Monday, severely underweight and needing care.
The kitten, who they named Keeper, will need to be in a few weeks of foster care, but they aren't sure where she will be able to go after her foster home.
Keeper is a perfect example of the problems the Arizona Humane Society is facing: too many animals needing care, too many animals to turn away and not enough families adopting cats into their families.
To help families adopt these kittens and cats needing homes, they're running their Leave No Feline Behind campaign.
Leave No Feline Behind is an adoption fee-free event where families can adopt cats free of charge.
They accept meaningful monetary donations, but are letting the public know that they want to save lives and that it's not all about money.
There are almost 240 cats in the Arizona Humane Society's adoption kennels.
By adopting a cat of your own, you can save lives, help animals in need and free up space for the countless other animals needing a place to sleep.
For more information on Keeper or other cats available for adoption, call 602-997-7586.
