1-6-2017: Perla has moved into a foster home to help continue to grow and work toward her goal of a forever home.
This sweetheart has come such a long way since she has been at the shelter. For the past 3 months, staff and volunteers have worked with Perla to help her gain confidence and to trust people. She has won over the hearts of everyone who meets her and is a favorite of all. Now in foster care, she will blossom even further. She is gentle, mellow, quiet and a charmer. Not only is she adorable, but she has a wonderful demeanor. Boy does she love treats so that is the way to her heart. Perla is 6 years old. Ask the shelter about meeting her. You won’t be sorry.
