Each year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters across the country, 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.

Peanut: a tiny puppy with a big smile

Interested foster families can view available pets, like Peanut, and schedule an appointment online at azhumane.org/adopt.

With possibly one of the most adorable faces to ever exist, Peanut truly is the cutest peanut! This 3 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix is ​​also just as petite as her namesake at just under 40 pounds of pure cuteness!

Although she almost never fails to have her signature big smile, this little pup was definitely in dire straits and very scared when she was found. Rescued by an Arizona Humane Society emergency animal medical technician in September from a carcass with two other dogs, the three were fortunately able to get out of this dangerous situation fairly quickly. Understandably nervous and unable to walk on a leash at first, Peanut has always been described as extremely sweet to everyone she meets.
