Add fun to your family with our August pets of the month!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
We’re highlighting Boo and Chikis (dogs) and Scooter and Sasha (cats) this month (Family Fun Month) and would love for you to come to the SPA and discover their wonderful qualities yourself! Just over a year old, Boo is a beautiful, medium-large Lab mix. She was brought to us as a tiny puppy and blossomed into a magnificent, sweet, smart dog. She loves to run and play and knows how to sit on command. Strong and loyal, she needs a home where she can have plenty of exercise and love. She has the basic endearing Lab characteristics and is both gentle and protective of “her” people.
Chikis is a small, adorable black and white mixed breed female that has been at the SPA since 2011. She is now four and a half years old and we very much want her to have a forever home. She is feisty, funny, affectionate and always eager for playtime and walks. She’s very smart and knows lots of tricks, feats she’s happy to display. Chikis would do best in a home where she is the only animal and she takes her time getting to know some strangers, but once she knows you, she’s full of affection.
Scooter arrived at the SPA after being rescued from an abandoned garage where he had spent his kittenhood with his feral mom, having no human contact. His progress was slow, learning to trust humans, not to flee from them. Now, after several months, he is open to petting and attention, still a little shy, but sweet and playful. A little under one year old, this handsome boy has an unusual gray coat with a striking dark shield on his head for a very aristocratic look.
Sasha was just a baby when she was left in a box by our doorstep along with her five siblings. Now nine months old, she is the last remaining kitten, and we are puzzled why she has not been chosen. She is a quiet pretty calico girl with big staring eyes that implore you to take a chance on getting to know her better.
