Start off 2014 with a family addition!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
We’re starting 2014 just right by featuring four special animals as our January Pets of the Month: Angel, Tia, Julia, and Hendrix. Angel and Tia are two of the “field pups” rescued and brought to the SPA in October. Actually, Angel and Tia, both about one year old, are the grown-ups of the bunch. Tiny Angel is the mother of the four puppies that she and her sister, Tia, were protecting from other dogs in a field behind the eye clinic. They were dumped there by their owner when Angel was pregnant and left to survive on their own. Both were frightened and traumatized when they arrived at the SPA, puppies in tow. Angel is a tiny terrier mix; Tia is just slightly larger than her sister. These two are devoted to each other and can spend hours entertaining themselves. Angel is the quieter one, but if she feels threatened, she is as brave as a Great Dane. Both love to cuddle in laps, get belly rubs, and are the sweetest, most loving girls. Adopting these little ones together would bring you and them many years of happiness. After everything they have been through, don’t they deserve it?
Julia and Hendrix, about two years old, arrived at the SPA in November with their owner, who, due to declining health, was unable to take care of them. Both cats appeared healthy and friendly, but we still anticipated a long adjustment period, moving from the only home they had known to living in a much different environment, sharing space with several other adult cats. Much to our delight, both have settled in well, but each would be much happier in their own home once again.
Julia is a large orange and white girl and is the more outgoing of the two. She requested lap time from the first day and has not let up. She dotes on attention and stares at you with her big green-gray eyes. Hendrix is a very large boy with a coat as sleek and black as a seal. He has beautiful, intense golden eyes and loves his head rubbed. He is extremely gentle and exudes sweetness.
Adopt any of these Pets of the Month during January and receive a free adoption kit. Adoptions (350 pesos) include vaccinations, deworming, and neutering. You can preview all our animals at www.spasanmiguel.org and http://www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel. Happy New Year!
