Shelters seek homes for playful cat, energetic dog Local animal rescue agencies are looking for people to adopt a 5-year-old Russian Blue cat and a 2-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix. The terrier, dubbed Maxter by the Arizona Animal Welfare League, is a “big boy with a heart of gold” who not only enjoys having his master take him along on hikes and jogs but also “may be a good candidate for agility training, shelter assistant Shauna Michael said. He also likes other dogs of all sizes, but rather than live at the league’s main shelter at 25 N. 40th St., Phoenix, he would be much happier in someone’s home, she added.

love of playtime,” Medlock added. “When it comes to toys, Miles is not picky – he loves batting pipe cleaners, jumping for wand toys, chasing toy mice, and bunny kicking stuffed toys.

Upon capture, he triumphantly carries his toy to a little hidey-hole to relish in his victory,” she added. All this makes Miles “an absolute joy to watch,” she said.

Library reopens Cale Pittullo-Hamilton, 5, of Ahwatukee checks books out of 6-year-old Anna Wolcott's Little Free Library after she reopened for business last Saturday. The library was stolen July 4, only a week after Anna had set it up in front of her Ahwatukee home, but was found about six weeks later and returned to the little girl. There were refreshments at the reopening and she received boxes of donated books.
