SPA Pets of the Month—May 2016
From the SPA
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
May stars are Sherlock and Alba (cats) and Alegria and Lola (dogs).
Sherlock had a loving owner who died and, unfortunately, this sweet boy wound up in a neglectful home, but was then rescued and brought to us. An amazingly handsome Flame Point Siamese type about 1 1/2 years old, his cream and peach markings form a dramatic background for his brilliant blue eyes. Not just a pretty face, Sherlock is gentle and affectionate too.
Alba is getting ready to celebrate her first birthday and would like nothing more than to be someone’s special girl. This lovely feline has bunny-like fur, white with splotches of peach and gray. She loves to be petted, and we’re amazed she hasn’t been snatched up by now. She’s such a special cat!
About 3 1/2 years old, Alegria is a small, stocky, brindle-haired mixed breed that believes she is a giant! She adores people, but if you are looking for a protective dog, she is happy to oblige. She has a big-dog bark and a swagger to her walk, so strangers beware! She takes time getting to know other dogs, but once they agree she’s the boss, she loves to play with them.
Lola, is a medium-sized, slender, and beautiful dog, about 2 1/2 years old. She has mastered several commands, including “sit,” “down,” and “leave it.” Also fiercely protective, Lola needs a firm but loving owner, and she will reward you with her funny and sweet personality as well as being your guardian. In this case, her bark is definitely worse than her bite!

Don’t miss the opportunity to become part of our foster network. Fostering is ideal for people who love animals, want to help them with time and love, and would like to contribute to the improvement of the community. It is a short-term commitment, so even if you are not a full-time resident, you can get your cat or dog “fix” while helping to save the lives of animals. We also have a weekend foster program for current dogs. For more information about this program and our regular foster program, please see our website at spasanmiguel.org/how-you-can-help/foster-program/ or contact SPAFosters@gmail.com.
