Here’s lucky “Leo” being given special attention by volunteer Corky Halberg. During her nine-week vacation in Bonaire this year Corky volunteers at the Bonaire Animal Shelter. What a nice thing to do and how appreciative are the animals she spends time with. This is especially a fine deal for those people who come to the island and miss their pets!
Leo is only a year old, but he’s considered a “special needs” pup. Other dogs consider him the lowest of the pack and have treated him harshly. This must have happened to him on the street too because he wandered into a real estate office, seeking asylum, possibly with one of their clients buying a house and who needed a dog to go with it? Leo is such a darling, with his funny face and always has one ear up and one down. He just needs the right owner who can give him attention. Of course, as are all the other adoptees, he’s in excellent health, has had his shots and tests and is ready to go. Thank you for posing for me, Leo and Corky.
The Shelter on the Lagoen Road is open Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm, 3 pm to 5 pm. Telephone 717-4989.
