PHOENIX — A little more than a month after he was found with rubber bands tied around his paws, a 10-week-old puppy is ready for adoption.
Little Foot has made a full recovery after a good Samaritan brought him to the Arizona Humane Society. When he was first brought in, his feet were so swollen he had difficulty walking.
Because of all of the interest in the adorable American pit bull terrier, AHS is holding a special adoption event on Sunday, March 3.
Interested adopters should go to the Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion on Dobbins Road near 19th Avenue to enter a drawing for his adoption.
Each household will receive one ticket, and three tickets will be drawn. The household with the first ticket drawn will get the first chance to adopt.
The tickets are free, but Little Foot's adoption fee is $450.
The doors open at 11 a.m., and the drawing will be held at noon. Plan to arrive early, as no tickets will be given after 12 p.m.
If you can't attend the drawing or your name is not drawn, keep in mind that there are plenty of other neglected pets at AHS or other shelters that could use a loving forever home.
