SPCA Pet of the Week: Meet Dove

Updated 1 month ago

In Friday’s Noon Lunchbreak, Diana De Los Santos from the SPCA of Hancock County was here with Dove.

Dove came to the shelter in February due to the owner not being able to have a cat any longer. Then they found out that she had some tumors in her ears. They were removed and were not malignant. She is doing great. She seems to get along with everyone, other cats and has lived with dogs. She is a great lap cat and loves to cuddle. She is one of our “lobby” cats and roams free around the front desk….she is a good greeter! She is adventurous and loves to dart in and out of rooms.
