Tonya the Tiger ended up the SPCA when a good Samaritan found her abandoned at a local grocery store. The shelter environment was both shocking and stressful to our baby lion and it took her a while to warm up to staff. With time and patience we were able to build a strong relationship. We knew that Tonya would not thrive in the shelter environment so we reached out to our foster families to see if anyone had an open spot. Lucky for Tonya, the most perfect foster home was available. Within days, Tonya was acting like a normal, happy puppy. She has come a LONG way since being a stray and is now ready for her forever home. Tonya lives with both cats and dogs wonderfully. Here's what her foster parents wanted us to tell you:
"Tonya is sweet and playful. She loves going on walks and playing with her foster brothers. She is super smart and very eager to please. She likes to take new experiences slow and to have time to think about them but with patience she will do anything you ask of her. She is really great with other dogs and does well with cats."
Tonya MUST go home with a family that has other dogs. If you are interested in meeting Tonya, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
