Pet Of The Week: Elsa

By Hope Bidegainberry on April 1, 2019

Elsa is a tender-hearted and remarkably sweet little dog.  This one year old spayed female Terrier mix is still working on overcoming her shyness and would do best in an adult only home.  She loves other dogs her size and her dream home would have another resident dog for her to bond with.  Elsa is a graduate of our TAILS (Transitioning Animals Into Loving Situations) program, a partnership with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office which pairs shelter dogs with minimum-security inmates to give the dogs round-the-clock care and gives the inmates an avenue for developing skills and making their time more meaningful.  Seeking a kind and gentle dog?  Ask for Elsa ID# A852512.

The shelter is open for adoptions weekdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekends 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Potential adopters should arrive at least an hour before closing time to complete an adoption.
