The SPA Advocates

Concentric Circles


By Harry Burrus Imagine a lake. I’m out there. Hovering. I have a stone in my hand. I drop the stone into the water. Concentric circles emerge, enlarge, and extend. Hold that image. Do a freeze-frame. Not of me hovering, but of those ever-expanding circles. The SPA takes care of approximately 100 cats and dogs [...]

The Triumvirate


By Megan Gabel All for one and one for all! That’s Mica, Sansa, and Kira, six-month-old sisters who currently rule Puppy World at the SPA. They are medium-sized but still growing, and they constantly roust around with each other. Under usual circumstances, they would have been moved to individual casitas by now, but we don’t [...]

¡Gracias a Gabby y Xiomara!


By Jayn Corral A few weeks ago, we introduced you to mammas Gabby and Xiomara. Their newborn kittens had been brought to the SPA a few days before the mothers were found. Reunited with their little ones, Gabby and Xiomara shared motherly duties among the six babies, grateful to have each other to give them [...]
