SPA Puppy Extravaganza: August 20, 2016!
By Megan Gabel
The SPA has a bunch of irresistible puppies waiting for loving homes. Each one is affectionate, playful, and, of course, adorable! On Extravaganza Saturday, August 20, all puppy adoptions will be reduced from 400 pesos to 300 pesos (includes vaccinations, sterilization, and deworming). If you mention “Extravaganza” before August 20, we will honor the discount. Let me tell you about four of our cuties.
Speckle, Tria, Michelle, and India are sisters, having arrived with their mother at the SPA at the tender age of six days; eyes not yet open, making little squeaky noises as they nestled in to nurse. Now about 3 months old, they have blossomed into adorable beauties with similar personalities. They are all-curious and, just like any puppy, need lots of chew toys. Each is smart and energetic. They have just gone on their first walk and did very well, zigzagging, sniffing, exploring, and bravely facing the big outside world.
Luckily these sisters came in with their mother. If not, for them to survive we would have had to rely upon foster homes. For newborns, fostering requires routine and frequent feeding which makes it challenging to get a good night’s sleep. But the personal satisfaction from literally saving babies’ lives is phenomenal. Rest assured that most fostering does not deal with newborns and you can also opt out of that type of fostering. If you love animals but are unable to own one, fostering is ideal. It is a short-term commitment and an enriching experience. The SPA provides all medical care at our on-site clinic and can help with other needs. You provide love, attention, and a caring home to a deserving animal until we have space or until the animal is old enough or well enough to be adoptable. We also have a weekend foster program for current dogs—a mini vacation for them, the chance to be part of a family for a weekend—and a wonderful experience for you. To sign up or learn more about this program and our regular foster program, please email SPAFosters@gmail.com and see our website at spasanmiguel.org/how-you-can-help/foster-program/.
