Help find a home for Launda

The Southern Gazette - - SPORTS -

It’s not un­com­mon for the Burin Penin­sula SPCA to re­ceive calls from peo­ple who have to move into as­sisted liv­ing hous­ing or re­tire­ment homes and can­not take their pet with them. Many have to down­size and let go of per­sonal items that hold pre­cious mem­o­ries.

That must be very hard to do. It must be even harder give up a pet that has been a con­stant com­pan­ion for years. Equally, it must be as hard for the pet.

Launda was sep­a­rated from her life­long com­pan­ion and re­moved from her safe, com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment. How con­fused and up­set she must have felt when she first ar­rived at the shel­ter. At 12- years- old, Launda quickly set­tled and we’re very re­lieved that she’s not too stressed out. She’s also be­ing spoiled a lit­tle and spends most of her time hang­ing out in our of­fice.

Launda has been ex­am­ined by a vet and ap­pears to be in great shape for her age. We’re in the process of mak­ing ar­range­ments to get her spayed and she needs some teeth ex­tracted. She’ll be able to go to a new home once she re­cov­ers from her surgery. She’s a gen­tle, kind, lov­ing lady who’s still very ac­tive but set­tled and has great house man­ners.

If you are in­ter­ested in adopt­ing Launda or mak­ing a do­na­tion to­ward the cost of her surgery, es­ti­mated to cost be­tween $ 700 to $ 800, please drop by the shel­ter in Sal­monier, Burin from 12- 2 pm daily, call 891- 8000 or visit our web­site at www. burin­spca. com.

Launda is look­ing for a lov­ing home.
