Every year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Of those, about 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats.

Each week, The Arizona Republic highlights a handful of the many pets up for adoption at Valley shelters. To check the status of a specific animal, please contact the shelter directly.

Koda: A cuddly Chihuahua-mix 

Interested adopters can view available pets, like Koda, and schedule an appointment online at azhumane.org/adopt.

If you’re looking for a sweet companion, look no further! Koda is a 3-year-old Chihuahua mix who is looking for a home to call her own and a loyal human friend she can curl up next to. 

Koda may be a little but she’s already overcome some big obstacles. She was first brought to the Arizona Humane Society in December after she was hit by a car. A Good Samaritan rushed Koda to the Arizona Humane Society to get the care she needed.
