Kitten rescued from ceiling ready for adoption

PHOENIX - A kitten rescued from inside the ceiling of a Tempe city recreation center is ready for adoption.

Bretta Nelson with the Arizona Humane Society said "Libby" will be available on Friday, November 8 at their Sunnyslope location.

Nelson said Libby has been in foster care since her rescue in mid-September . At the time she was just over one pound and needed to reach two pounds in order to be spayed. Her rescuer, AHS Emergency Medical Technician Andy Gallo, has been taking care of the kitten.

But now it's time to find the perfect family for Libby, even though Gallo and his daughters have fallen in love with her.

Libby's adoption fee is $75 and includes her spay surgery, first vaccinations, a free follow-up vet exam, collar and carrier.

AHS will hold a drawing for Libby's adoption since several people are already listed as potential adopters after seeing her story in the media.

The drawing will be held at noon in the adoptions lobby of the AHS Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue in Phoenix. Potential adopters should plan to arrive early.

Nelson added that currently AHS has 260 cats and kittens waiting to be adopted with fees ranging from $20 to $75.

If you have questions about Libby, potential adopters can call 602-997-7586 Ext. 2045 or arrive well before noon on Friday.
