SPA News and October Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy our September 13 fundraiser at the Z Club, featuring a runway fashion show by Darla, entertainment by Gravity Works, a gourmet meal, dancing, and a raffle. The evening was splashy, exciting, and a tremendous success, thanks to Darla Nordstrom, Ann King, the models, choreographer, and our fabulous volunteers. We appreciate your support. To get a real sense of what we are doing and what your donations go to support, please check out our new video accessible in the middle of the home page of our website: www.spasanmiguel.org.
This month we are featuring Sonny and Cher (dogs) and Harry and Benito (cats). Brother/sister Sonny and Cher arrived at the SPA in February 2014 at two months of age. Medium-sized and still growing, they are stunning German short-haired pointer mixes. Cher, with a slightly longer coat than her brother’s, is playful, inquisitive, friendly, and eager for exercise. Sonny is a bit shyer and takes a while to get to know new people but then becomes a devoted friend. These dogs need exercise and like to be taught new things. Both are smart, get along well with other dogs, and would be excellent family pets. They are good with children, but since they are strong, especially Sonny, older kids would be best.
Harry arrived at the SPA with seemingly not a worry in the world. This eight-month-old handsome boy settled in immediately, comfortable with both cats and people. A happy-go-lucky, affectionate orange and white charmer, he makes us smile. Playful and always willing to share a lap, maybe he’s the right cat for you.
Benito was brought to us after becoming homeless due to a family crisis. In one home since he was a baby, much loved, this disruption in his life was unexpected. At two years old, puzzled by this sudden change in life, he is still frightened by the other cats, but is very loving and responsive to people. A chocolate Siamese-type with intense blue eyes, he is simply stunning and should win hearts.
