Matchmaking Service Finds Companions For Pets

Mon., Nov. 17, 1997

Pet owners in northern Spain searching for the perfect mate for their dog, cat or bird now have a new option: a matchmaking service.

“Happy animals,” the first such group in the country, will find companions for pets who want to reproduce but also for those who are simply bored or lonely.

Client pets will be registered in the agency’s database with a photograph and a short description of the qualities they are seeking in a life partner.

The agency, set to open today in the northeastern city of Girona, initially will serve dogs, cats and birds. But manager Mari Carmen Melero is hoping to branch out into snakes and other reptiles.
