Meet Larry and Moe … also known as “the dynamic duo.” These two boys will provide hours and hours of free entertainment whether adopted together or separately. After they’re each exhausted from playing they will seek out their humans for a good lap cuddle and to be pet. They are about 8 months old. They do not have to be adopted together. They do get along very well with each other, but they also get along well with other cats. Both Larry and Moe have great personalities and sweet faces. They have been tested for Felv/FIV, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. The adoption fee for a cat is $95.
Bruce is a very handsome pit blend, about 3 years old. He was recently returned, after being adopted from Friends for Life Animal Rescue for a while, when his humans split up. The boyfriend held onto him as long as he could, but realized it wasn’t fair to Bruce to bounce him around to different places. Bruce is what we call a Pit Bull Ambassador — he is the best of the breed. He came back to us a little overweight so he needs his new family to help him shed a few pounds. He’d be happy to have a fit partner for the new year and go on long walks with you to help everyone stay in shape.
Isadora is a beautiful adult girl rescued as a stray several years ago and adopted out from Friends for Life. She was recently picked up by a Good Samaritan who had seen her roaming the neighborhood for several months. The people noticed that she was increasingly matted and looked to be bleeding from her back end. .
Isadora is a beautiful adult girl rescued as a stray several years ago and adopted out from Friends for Life. She was recently picked up by a Good Samaritan who had seen her roaming the neighborhood for several months. The people noticed that she was increasingly matted and looked to be bleeding from her back end. They took matters into their own hands, taking her in and getting her to their vet for immediate treatment, which they paid for out of their own pocket. At that visit the veterinarian scanned Isadora for a microchip and sure enough found one registered to Friends for Life. So, back Isadora came to continue her treatment and find a new home … one this time where she can spend the rest of her life in.
Mork is an adorable terrier blend, estimated to be about 4 years old. He is named after the wonderful Robin Williams character but he’s not from Ork (as far as we know). He found his way to Gilbert from the Yuma Humane Society where he was brought in as a stray.
Jax is a big beautiful boy, about 3 years old. He’s very playful and sweet. Thus far he’s gotten along with most cats he’s met. It isn’t sure if he’d be happy living with dogs. Jax has been at the shelter for quite some time so when he does get adopted, the family should understand it might take him some time to adjust to a home environment. His last person ended up having to return him due to allergies. Jax would like to be brushed sometimes to keep that wonderful mane of his looking its best. He seems to understand there’s a price to pay for being so handsome so he doesn’t mind it.
Pearl was originally found as a stray in Apache Junction. She’s been waiting a few months for a new home. She would love a home where she can have a regular feeding and exercise routine. Pearl could benefit from dropping a few pounds and now that the weather is nicer a walk here and there would be nice for her. Pearl is estimated to be about 3 years old. She is a real sweetheart of a girl. She seems to get along well with dogs. She is believed to be a hound/lab mix. Pearl is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped.
Budda was found as a stray and he wasn’t very good at it, nor did he like it. He was dirty and very hungry and skinny. It was obvious he was once someone’s cat as he was very affectionate and seemed to be OK with children. A veterinarian’s estimate of Budda’s age is about 7 years old. Budda is a laid-back and gentle boy. He loves belly rubs and seems to be good with other cats. It isn’t known if he’d enjoy the company of a dog. Budda has gotten his teeth cleaned, he’s neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $85.
Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... the owners said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy and silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with him, teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and, because of this, he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.
Hannah is a beautiful girl, estimated to be a 2-year-old Shepherd blend. She originally was found as a stray in Yuma. She weighs more than 60 pounds. Hannah is a great companion for humans, however, not so much for other animals. She becomes possessive if dogs are around and want her toys or her food. She’ll need to be the only animal in the home because of this. She can and does, however, interact with other dogs when there are no toys or food around.
Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule.
Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule. Chaplain is a loving boy as well and will sit with his people from time to time. He’d probably do well with cats that don’t mind him being so active and some dogs as well. Chaplain has tested negative for FELV/FIV, is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccinations. He currently calls Friends for Life’s adoption center in downtown Gilbert home. His adoption fee is $85. If interested in meeting him, call (480) 497-8296, visit www.azfriends.org, or just come in during office hours to meet him.
Kermit was originally found as a stray and brought in to the Yuma Humane Society. He is estimated to be about 6 years old. The guess on what he is … Chihuahua mix? All that is known for sure is he’s absolutely adorable. Kermit needs a child-free home as he has a bit of sensitivity when being handled. Don’t let that scare you though … the volunteers that work with Kermit at the shelter can go over/explain what exactly that means. He is a very sweet boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Kermit’s adoption fee is $125.
This beauty’s name is Lafawnda. She’s a Snowshoe cat, about 12 years old. She was returned several months ago due to no fault of her own. This is actually the second time she was returned. The first time she was in her home for nine years, but her owner became ill and could no longer care for her. The second time she was returned because her family was moving and couldn’t take her with them.
Big Mac is a big hunk of a dog and everyone that meets him just loves him. He’s said to be an American bulldog/mastiff mix about 5 years old. He had been adopted a year or so ago but recently returned due to trying to put the family’s pet tortoise in his belly. Thankfully Big Mac was unsuccessful and the tortoise lives to tell the tale.
Suri is a beautiful domestic medium-haired white and gray tabby cat, about 2 years old. She has been waiting a while for a home because she just doesn’t show well at the adoption center. The shelter environment causes her to become overly stressed and then she wants nothing to do with meeting a potential family. Suri originally was rescued off the streets as a stray. Suri would need to be the only cat in her new home as she becomes defensive around other cats. She’d like to be the “queen” of the house and be loved on all day by her people. She ADORES the attention she receives from her people. Once acclimated to her new home she’ll follow her humans around, sit next to them on the couch … she’s a great cat for a quiet home. It isn’t known how she’d do with dogs and kids.
This is Brennan (however the shelter knows him as Bogart) who was adopted about a year ago, and was recently returned through no fault of his own. He is about 2 years old, and is one cute Chiweenie.
Snowball is a beautiful adult, short-haired white cat. She’s also known as “Dame Snowball” because she is one in every sense of the word. When she wants something she will sidle up to you and swing her big fluffy behind at you and give one of her hilarious meows. Snowball loves to give “butt bumps” and at feeding time turns into a disco princess bumping and grinding for her kibble. She will love you but on her own terms. She loves to be at the center of it all — in the middle of the bed, in the middle of the sofa, in the middle of the chair.
Jameson is a very handsome male Shepherd mix, about a year old. He was found as a stray. Jameson was never claimed so now he’s available for adoption. He is a big boy with lots of energy. He’s still very “puppy-ish” so whomever shares their home with Jameson should know sitting all day watching TV just won’t satisfy him. He is a wonderful guy that loves people, but he should be an only dog. During the time he’s been at the shelter he’s been “barky” when he sees or meets other dogs, and he does not want to share food or toys with his canine friends. He is living at the Friends for Life adoption center in downtown Gilbert, 143 W. Vaughn Ave. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.
Mitch is a senior, male, beautiful gray Tabby. He is sweet and friendly, competing with all the younger cats at the shelter. This wise one knows not to miss an opportunity for attention. Mitch comes right out to receive pets and scratches when someone enters the kitty room. He’ll rub up against you and beg for treats, too. He’s doing everything he can to catch the attention of someone, but being a senior it is often difficult to compete with the “kids.”
The 14th BARKtoberkfest, the annual party for dogs and their owners, is Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Gilbert Town Center.
Dori is a silly female Boxer blend, about 2 years old. She was found as a stray, but since no one claimed her she must now find a new family to love. It’s possible she’s had at least one litter of pups before she became a stray, but she is spayed now.
Excitement is in the air for this annual East Valley party in the park for adults and children to celebrate the relationships we share with our most loyal of friends — DOGS!

Cheerleader is a domestic short-haired brown tabby cat about, between 2- and 3-years-old. She’s found ways to entertain herself while at Friends For Life’s adoption days by rolling around in her kennel, trying to get the attention of a nice person to adopt her and bring her home.
This is Sam — or Silly Sam, as volunteers at Friends for Life call him.
