One of the managers of the Bonaire Animal Shelter, Monique, is shown holding “Coco,” an adorable cuddly pup. Not only is his coloring an unusual chocolate brown with caramel accents but he has gorgeous green eyes. What a looker. He’s only about two months old. He was brought into the Shelter by a Good Samaritan who brings in pups who are unwanted and/or abandoned. This lady is known as “the dog woman,” an animal lover. Lucky for Coco that she found him because now he’s in a safe and loving place with good food and tender care. Coco is in perfect health, having been examined by the vet. He’s been tested, wormed and has had his shots.
The Shelter adoption fee of NAƒ 105 for dogs includes all this as well as sterilization when he’s old enough. Stop by for a visit at the Shelter on the Lagoen Road. They’re open Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm and 3 to 5 pm. Telephone: 717-4989.
