|Double your pleasure! Double your fun! Double your delightment! I’m not talking about those Doublemint gum commercials featuring twins running since the 50s. I’m talking about adopting a bonded pair of pets. The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA typically has a pair of animals that we would like to place together in one home. In most cases, the bonded pair are siblings who grew up together and were brought to the shelter together. The pair has a deep connection, or one animal is dependent on the other for reassurance and comfort.|
There are benefits to adopting a bonded pair. These are pets who get along extremely well and can keep each other company while you’re away. So, if you were considering a companion animal and have room for two, check out these dynamic duos:
• Cucho and Tilico are 2-year-old male Chihuahua mixes. Tilico has lots of energy and loves to play. He is very friendly and curious about his surroundings. Chuco is shy without his brother. Chuco can be playful but mostly is gentle and quiet. They would prefer someone with prior small dog experience. They can get along with other dogs and possibly cats. Children in the home should be 6 and up.
• Cali and Patches are 7-year old altered females. Cali has medium length hair with torbie coloring and white markings. Patches has black and white short hair. Cali is a lovable cat who likes to climb into laps and sleep next to you. Patches is a bit shy but still likes to be combed and petted. They are ready for any pet friendly home that will keep them indoors only.
• Lucky (a lop-eared male) and Chance (s black fur female) are ready to go home with the most fortunate of adopters. They are fun-loving rabbits, enjoying play time in the cottage and snuggling with each other.
The shelter is open for adoptions Monday through Friday, 11am to 7pm; and weekends from 11am to 6pm. We are located at 12 Airport Blvd., San Mateo next to Coyote Point. For information, call 650/340.7022 or visit www.PHS-SPCA.org
