Lucy Too: A SPA Story
By Lucy Too Severinsen
I am resting now, looking out at green grass and trees. The sun is on my face and a soft breeze has come to pet me. I have a full tummy, a new family, and, at last, I am loved. Let me tell you how lucky I am.

I was adopted three months ago from the SPA where I had lived for over a year. I was one of the 40-plus found or abandoned animals who live there, longing to be chosen. For now, they are lucky, too. They have shelter, food, and care, where there was none before. The SPA staff and volunteers do all they can do to make us comfortable, but the hours are long and they’re busy caring for lots of animals and the nights are lonely. Puppies, kittens, and “cute” go first. I am a nine-year-old dog, prone to weight gain, and will never be described as “cute.” I am actually very plain and nondescript, (but my new mommy thinks I’m beautiful).
There is beauty in every SPA casita. Mostly there is need. Do you have room in your house and heart for one? One more? You could make another animal at SPA as lucky as I am.
P.S. From Lucy Too’s Mom: I met Lucy volunteering walking dogs at SPA. She was not the first, or only, dog I fell in love with. But, I am older and so is she. I was bringing her home to 11 other dogs (including a “Lucy”) and knew I needed a gentle temperament, which she has. There are other SPA dogs that need a single dog environment, dogs that mix well, dogs and cats that tell you their needs and boundaries. All need love and homes. Please come by SPA and give or, better yet, take. If you can’t physically handle a dog or cat, would you consider a donation? A membership? Volunteering? There are many ways to help. Show your support by attending the September 13 SPA fundraiser: Darla’s Fashion Extravaganza (includes runway fashion show, Gravity Works entertainment, gourmet dinner, dancing, raffle); 6-10pm at Z Club, Lupita 6 (behind Immigration). Purchase tickets through September 6 at the SPA, Los Pinos 7, La Conexion (Aldama, Monet, Longhorn), and Darla’s (corner Correo and Recreo) at 1,000 pesos or US$85 (cash only). It will be a splendid evening, the proceeds of which will benefit all the SPA animals.
