Cat injured in fire gets quickly adopted after Valley couple sees her story on ABC15 Mobile App

PHOENIX - A cat who suffered burns in an apartment fire has found herself a new home, thanks to a proactive woman and the ABC15 Mobile app .

ABC15 reported Monday that Bella would be available for adoption through the Arizona Humane Society starting on Tuesday.

Bella and her family were left homeless after the fire and unfortunately, Bella had to have a leg amputated because of her injuries.

She has since been recovering and learning to live with three legs at the AHS Second Chance Hospital.

Valley resident Katie Stanford saw Bella's story on the ABC15 Mobile app and fell in love with her.

On Tuesday, the first day Bella was available for adoption, Stanford brought her boyfriend Austin Aryain into the shelter and she was adopted.

Bretta Nelson, the public relations manager at AHS, said seeing Bella go is bittersweet, but successes like this are why they do what they do.

Despite a tough bump in the road for Bella, she got lucky and is well on her way to a new life thanks to Arizona Humane Society and the open hearts of a Valley couple.
