Pet of the Week – Valentino

“What greater gift than the love of a cat?” Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens might have something there when it comes to Valentino. Our handsome 5-year-old red tabby is looking for a home where he can shower his new family with love.

But a home with just adults, please. That’s because he weighs 11 pounds, and that is just the right size for your lap! When he’s not there, he’ll be stretching out on the sofa and just enjoying the good life.

If you are interested in Valentino, stop by the County Animal Services’ animal care facility in Bonita. The shelter is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and is located at 5821 Sweetwater Road.

Valentino’s adoption fee is only $35 which includes current vaccinations, viral testing, a microchip and registration, flea control plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
