Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre

Love is in the air! With Valentine's Day around the corner, Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre is looking for a special home for a sweet couple, Geronimo and Willow. They are approximately 6 to7 years old, up-to-date on all their vaccines, anti-parasitic treatment, microchipped and spayed/neutered.  

These two kitties are full of love and have been living in a wonderful foster home. Geronimo is outgoing while little Willow is on the quieter side. Geronimo requires regular veterinary checkups for his heart murmur. His condition requires no medication at this time, just lots of love in a low stress and happy home.
