Pet of the Week – Tigre

Just about every animal left our shelter in Carlsbad on Clear the Shelters day except Tigre. She was passed over even though she’s been with us since April. Tigre is a 12-year-old spayed female tortoise shell cat and well, she can be a little bit particular about things.

She prefers to be an only cat, and though she enjoys being petted, she has no trouble telling you to stop when she’s had enough.

If you think Tigre would be a good fit in your household, come meet her at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Her animal ID number is A0987194 and her adoption fee is just $29. That price includes vaccinations, a microchip and a free veterinary examination. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
