The adult male alpaca came to the B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (B.C. SPCA) as a result of a cruelty investigation.
Described by his temporary carers in Langley, B.C., as a "rock star" who has shown no aggressive or unwanted behaviour, Paco is now looking for a new caretaker to adopt him.
The organization has given Paco a makeover, shearing him, sorting out his feet and having him neutered.
Paco is halter broke and is accustomed to hanging out with other animals, and would do best in a home with others horses, says the B.C. SPCA.
Alpacas are a domesticated species of South American camelid.
