Her name is “Lola,” and maybe she is a dancer… like the song says. This Lola came into the Bonaire Animal Shelter with her long black fur all matted and dirty. What a mess. The staff washed her, tried to comb her and ended up having to cut nearly all her fur off. But that was awhile ago and now she’s looking better every day.
Curly and cute and energetic and sweet. Lola is about eight months old and in perfect condition, both inside and out. Not only that but she is a good hunter too. That should appeal to those people who want a pet who can discourage marauding lizards and iguanas from eating their plants!
Remember too that the dog adoption fee of NAƒ 105 covers her vet exam, tests, worming, shots and even sterilization. And you can be assured of getting a fine healthy and social pet when you adopt from the Shelter.
It’s on the Lagoen Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm and 3 to 5 pm. Tel. 717-4989. Looking for a worthwhile Christmas gift for someone who has everything?
