Kitten rescued from ceiling to be adopted

Posted: Updated:

Weighing only one pound, Libby the kitten was found in the ceiling of a recreation center in September.

Libby will be up for adoption on Friday, a little less than two months after she was rescued.

Employees of Pyle Adult Recreation Center in Tempe heard the 5-week-old kitten's little mews for days, but they couldn't tell where it was coming from.

Arizona Humane Society was called in.

Their medical technician, Andy Gallo, called her rescue the, "Best, most destructive, most rewarding and hardest rescue to date."

Libby has been in foster care with Gallo since he rescued her out of the ceiling.

His little girls have fallen in love with her, but he knows another great family is out there.

Libby's adoption fee is $75 and includes her spay surgery, first vaccinations, a free follow-up vet exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, collar and carrier.

AHS will hold a drawing for Libby's adoption because nine people are already on a list to potentially adopt her.
