Pet of the Week – Saphira

Looking for your new feline soul mate? Meet Saphira, a 4-year-old domestic shorthair with so much to offer! Saphira is an “in-your-lap” kind of girl who loves being petted and held. She is not only a soft spoken and gentle soul, but also a survivor with an incredible will to live.

She came to the shelter with a fractured jaw and an injury that left her with impaired vision in one eye. Saphira has since recovered from her injuries and because this lovely lady has been with us for over a month, her adoption fee is now half off.

You can take her home for only $29 and that will cover her spay surgery, current vaccinations, a microchip, and one free vet exam within the first ten days. If Saphira could be the one cat you’ve been looking for, pay her a visit at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Ask for her by her animal ID number, A1763012.
