ID: A56667
Tia the calico kitty is sweet and shy. Once she gets to know you, she is very loving. Tia would not like to be around other cats or dogs. She wants you all to herself and would do best in a single pet household. Tia is also part of the Guardian Angel program, which covers all fees.

The Guardian Angel Program covers fees for some older overlooked pets. It asks for $50 donations, which go towards the adoption fee of a pet the donor can help choose. The donor’s name is put on a sign on the run showing which animal is being sponsored. With all fees covered, the program has been extremely successful in finding these animals a new owner and home.

The Mutt Strutt shelter support organization benefits the San Marcos Animal Shelter through the Guardian Angel Program, created in July 2007.
