Hi… my name is Joya,

Returning to TALGV, I know the kind volunteers are helping me adjust to yet another change. As a teenager, I lived here until a couple adopted me and my feline pal, Smokey. In that home we got along well with the Newfoundland dogs. Sadly, our human dad died, and our human mom could no longer care for us. So, we were brought back here to await a new home. Smokey went to one home, and I to another. In my most recent home I lived with a single person who said I was shy and hid during the day and played at night. I need a patient person to become my true self. Will you be that person?

If you are considering adoption, stop in at TALGV to meet me soon. Or you maycall TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make an appointment. Kennel hours are between 10 and 2 every day.
