Pets: Meet the Ann Arbor.com adoptable pet of the week: Angel
Angel is an adorable 2-month-old kitten who is waiting for her forever home. She and her four siblings were found on the side of the road in a box. What little food they had been given was long gone. If not for kindness of a stranger, who brought them to the Humane Society of Huron Valley, they would have been left to die in the summer heat.
All of the kittens are very social and friendly, but Angel might be the sweetest of the group. She loves to be held and will purr into your ear and even seems to coo when you pet her.
It’s kitten season, and the Humane Society of Huron Valley is urging people to adopt their next kitten from the shelter. HSHV has more than 50 kittens ready for adoption now and 246 in foster homes just getting big enough to come back to the shelter over the next few weeks. Our kitten intake numbers are soaring above those of 2011.
When you adopt a kitten at HSHV, they have already been spayed/neutered, been given their initial vaccinations and a microchip I.D., and they have had a thorough veterinary check. All these services would have cost close to $450 for the “FREE” kitten you thought was a good deal, but at HSHV they are included in the affordable adoption fee.
Two kittens provide each other with exercise, social interaction, and mental stimulation. Cats housed together have more opportunity to “just be cats” by socializing and playing with each other, and this means they are less likely to be destructive or engage in other problematic behaviors.
Two kittens together are also twice the fun, so please consider adopting Angel along with one of her adorable siblings.
Every pet available for adoption is spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
