Plenty of Pets
Sandy has been patiently waiting for a home.
This three-year-old girl has been at the SPCA shelter six months, and she’s ready to be part of a loving family.
Her hobbies are listed as eating, snacking, and pigging out, but she also loves snuggling.
If you’d like to meet Sandy, and the other kitties waiting to be adopted, stop by the SPCA shelter on Industrial Avenue.
Photos of more adoptables can be found on Facebook.
The tidal bore will be coming in at 2:23 p.m. today.
