Callie is a true testament to why the Arizona Humane Society continues to work to find new and innovative ways to save the lives of even more animals every day. The 4-year-old dilute tortoiseshell kitten was originally rescued by AHS as an underage and orphaned kitten all the way back in 2018 at just a few weeks old. After a few months of nurturing to bring her to adoption age and weight in AHS’ Bottle Baby Intensive Care Unit and a Foster Hero loving home, Callie was quickly adopted.
