Pet of the Week Darla: More to Love

The great British wit Oscar Wilde once observed, “It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

Animal Services staff thinks the quote suits dear Darla. Some people actually find Darla beautiful, but at 17-pounds, this full-figured feline’s never been called graceful or lithe. But once you get to know her, you’ll see it’s her personality that’s really outsized!

Darla’s a 4-year-old spayed domestic shorthair who’s looking for just the right person or family to love her for all she is. Meet her at the Department of Animal Services Carlsbad location, 2481 Palomar Airport Road and please bring her ID number, A1451507. Her adoption fee is $58, which includes a microchip, vaccinations and a free veterinary examination.
