Meet Mara! Mara was saved by a good samaritan who brought her to Gateway Veterinary clinic where they fully vetted her to get her ready for adoption. They reached out to HELP to find her a forever home. Mara is a sweet calico looking for a forever home. She is extremely playful. She needs a little time to warm up to her new surroundings and then she does great. She probably would do best in a home where she has a quieter environment. She prefers to sit next to you on the couch, and have a treat that would make her happy. In typical calico fashion-she is a diva–she really knows how beautiful she really is. Are you looking for a sweet companion? Then Mara is waiting for you!!
