SPA August Pets of the Month
From the SPA
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Pilar and Juliet, both around five months old, are absolutely adorable puppies! Pilar, a beautiful golden-colored mixed breed dog, probably part lab, is a playful sweetheart. Juliet, a tan, white, and black cutie, hasn’t met a person she didn’t like. On their first walk and exposure to the world outside the SPA, Juliet (Miss Curiosity) bounced around exploring everything and convinced Pilar that walks are great fun. Pilar now agrees! Both puppies are smart and are learning to sit. They are both active, energetic, and make us laugh daily. These girls are going to make fabulous pets and are sure to bring smiles to the faces of their owners. Maybe you will be one of those lucky folks!
Only four months old, Archie and Aussie are not quite ready for the grownup designation “cat.” These brothers came to us in quite a dramatic (and crowded) fashion. Stuffed into a rusty birdcage with their four other siblings, they were relieved to stretch out in the kitten room at the SPA with plenty of room to play and cavort. Friendly and stress-free from the moment they arrived, they quickly became volunteer favorites. These two guys are bundles of energy yet eager to fold themselves into our arms when naptime calls. Black and white tuxedo cats, they both have black noses and moustaches, but their markings set them apart. These brothers are very bonded to each other, and we are hoping they will be adopted together. If you want a pair of love bugs, these are the kittens for you.
Adopt (for 400 pesos, which includes sterilization, vaccinations, and deworming) any of these Pets of the Month during August and receive a free adoption kit. Preview all our available animals at spasanmiguel.org (Adopt Me! pages) and meet them at the SPA, Los Pinos #7, Monday–Saturday between 11 and 2, 152 6124. Please sign up 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.
