Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center opens in Clovis

The Fresno BeeNovember 15, 2013 

Visitors toured the new Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center in Clovis during its grand opening on Friday afternoon.

The longtime vision of supporters started to become a reality in 2011 when David McDonald, former Pelco CEO and owner, donated $2 million toward the effort.

Miss Winkles, a West Highland white terrier who tragically died at age 3, was McDonald's faithful companion.

"For me, this is a dream come true," McDonald said. "I know little Miss Winkles would certainly approve."

Rocky, Miss Winkles' brother, was on also on hand. The brightly decorated mobile adoption center was on display during the grand opening.

There are about 30 dogs and 40 cats at the center at the moment who are anxious to find good homes.

An open house will be held today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the center, located at Sierra and Temperance avenues.
