Dora the Cat has an amazing story! Dora, a beautiful black and burgundy cat, was adopted from Arlington Animal Services in May 2011. At the time of her adoption, Dora received a microchip implant, which is a form of identification. In June of 2011, Dora ventured off from her new home and did not return until April 2012! Dora left Arlington and traveled 850 miles away to Durango, Colorado! She safely returned home to Arlington after a year of exploring the country and will be at this program to meet all of our young authors!
