Winsome “Floricita” was found in the Kouchi Pa Bestia (animal drop off) outside the Bonaire Animal Shelter. Her past is a mystery, but the good news is that she was taken to a place (the Animal Shelter) where she can have a chance at a good life and not have to wander the streets. What a darling she is.
She’s about two months old and looks like she’ll be a very handsome large shepherd when she grows up. But it will be fun to enjoy her puppyhood because she’s so sweet and friendly and loves to play. Not only does Floricita have the attractive black and tan markings of a shepherd but she sports an incredible curling tail. What a girl! The vet has pronounced her fit and healthy and she has had her tests, worming and shots. She’s ready to go. And the NAƒ105 adoption fee covers all that plus sterilization when she’s old enough.
You may see Floricita at the Bonaire Animal Shelter on the Lagoen Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9 to 1 and 3 to 5. Tel. 717-4989. Take a look at their website too. It’s kept up to date by a hard working Shelter manager: www.AnimalShelterBonaire.com
