SPA Holiday Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Our December Pets of the Month are so good looking they don’t need giftwrap to make them special. Handsome Leo is a small/medium three-year-old male dog that was trying to join someone’s dog family. With six dogs already, there was no room for Leo. He is a sweetheart, very friendly, gets along with other dogs, and is easygoing and playful. He appears to have a bit of Golden Retriever in him and his coat is gorgeous, golden, but not too long. Pretty Gypsy was found hiding under a neighbor’s car one weekend and appeared terrified. They thought she might have been injured, but once she was coaxed out into the open, we could see that she was physically fine, just totally covered with burrs! After removing those and with a couple of good meals, she turned out to be a beautiful, calm, loving, and gentle girl. Now nine months old, she is good with other dogs and is wonderful with children.
Gorgeous Katya and lovely Elena, both exceptional mama cats who carefully tended their babies, are now ready for some attention of their own. Katya is under one year old, so she is really still a kitten herself. With her smoky taupe and white coat and her pale blue eyes, she’s a pleasure to look at, but more than just a pretty face; she’s both tranquil and affectionate. Elena arrived at the SPA in a birdcage with her three tiny babies. Nonplussed by this unusual transport, she’s remained a dignified girl with a regal bearing. Her striking looks stand out in the crowd. A longhaired dilute tortie (gray and cinnamon), this two-year-old is mellow and lap-worthy.
Adopt any of these beauties (400 pesos, which includes sterilization, vaccinations, and deworming) during December 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 through Sat between 11am and 2pm.
