May means new beginnings; and Bella, a 7-year-old, spayed, female domestic short-hair, would like one in a new home.
Bella came to Lancaster County SPCA as a stray in March. An affectionate cat, she enjoys beauty naps and being petted.
This month is also Chip Your Pet Month, and you can celebrate by getting your dog or cat microchipped at LCSPCA. No appointment is necessary; just stop in with your pet during shelter hours.
Microchipping involves injecting a rice-sized chip under the skin between shoulder blades. The low-cost and painless procedure takes only a few minutes but has lifelong benefits.
If a microchipped pet is found anywhere in the country, animal shelters, veterinary offices, and most police departments can use scanners to read the chip’s number and find the animal’s owner. LCSPCA scans every dog and cat it receives.
For more information about Bella, pet adoption, or microchipping, call (717) 917-6979, go to www.lancasterspca.org, or visit LCSPCA at 848 S. Prince St. in Lancaster today.
