Lucy Lucy will be San Diego 6-CW Animal House this weekend! Stay tuned!





Name:
Lucy
Breed: Short Haired Tabby
Age: 10-month-old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Friends of Cats
Phone: (619) 561-0361

Lucy is a 10-month-old, short-haired Tabby for adoption from the Friends of Cats shelter in El Cajon. She is very affectionate with humans and wants to be held and cuddled. Ideally, she'd be adopted by a family who could allow her to be an only pet, so that she can get all the attention. She has tested negative for any diseases, and is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed. She even comes with a free vet visit within 10 days of adoption. For a $100 donation, that's an incredible deal. The shelter is located at 15587 Olde Highway 80 in El Cajon, just east of Lake Jennings Park Road, and they're open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 to 3:30 for adoptions. This no-kill shelter is always looking for volunteers to help at the shelter, where they have more than 270 cats at any given time. About half of them are adoptable, and the others are part of the sanctuary program. You can learn more about adoption, volunteering or their Cinco de Meow fundraiser at FriendsOfCats.org

Oreo Oreo will be San Diego 6-CW Animal House this weekend! Stay tuned!





Name
: Oreo
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Age: 9-month-old kitten
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)

Oreo is a very sweet lap cat who loves to play with feather toys and seek human companionship. She's ok with other friendly cats who know how to get along, but she doesn't tolerate kitties who want to pick on her. Oreo was relinquished by her previous owner because the roommate's cat would not tolerate her, hence her dislike of being picked on. Oreo is now being fostered in a home with dogs, and everyone seems to get along quite nicely. She's also well-behaved and litter box trained! She's available for adoption through Animal Rescuers Without Borders, and you can meet Oreo at ARWOBs Cat Adoption Center located at the PETSMART in Cairemont, on Genesee. Potential cat and kitten adopters are welcomed to stop by during PETsMART's business hours any day of the week. If interested in adopting Oreo or one of her friends, please, visit ARWOB.org to submit a cat adoption application online. They're also looking for feline-loving volunteers or all ages, who can help at the adoption centers in Clairemont and Oceanside on a regular basis.

Kentucky This poor guy needs a home!

Kentucky will be featured again on the Mighty 1090 Pet Connection, @105MaxFM this Friday, March 27, 2015! Stay Tuned!

Name: Kentucky
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 10 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Pit Bull Rescue San Diego
Phone: (858) 736-1727
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Kentucky is a super sweet, cuddly, adorable girl who came to Pit Bull Rescue San Diego about 5 weeks ago with a non-contagious case of mange. Her hair is almost fully grown back in now and she's just gorgeous! According to her foster family, she loves dogs, cats, kids and especially loves to cuddle. It didn't take her long to learn how to play fetch and it's quickly become her favorite game. At night she and her foster dog siblings like to all pile onto the same dog bed and have snoring competitions. At adoption events you'll probably see her rocking a tutu, with a non-stop wagging tail. So far she's learned sit, down, wait, and go to bed. She loves her crate and lets you know when she needs to go out. Come meet her this weekend at PBRSD's adoption event from 11-2 at Mira Mesa Petco ( 8290 Mira Mesa Boulevard), and fill out an application at www.pbrsd.org.

Mellow Molly is a 6-year-old, 70-pound shepherd/lab mix who is an easy going snuggler who just wants to hang out in the house or go on walks with her family. She’s so easy to get along with, she never even complains when her doggy foster brother, who is the same size as she is, sits on top of her. She’s happy to take daily walks, or go off on a romp to a dog beach or off-leash dog park, but she’s just fine being your resident couch potato, too. Her foster mom calls her an angel, and knows she'll be a wonderful companion for a person or family looking for a gentle, mellow house dog. She’s great with kids, fully house-trained and is good at waiting when you ask her to. If you would like to meet Molly, visit The Rescued Dog.org to fill out an application and set up a meet-and-greet.

Website:
www.GreatPyrRescue.org

Ruby is almost 2 years-old, and she's a big, beautiful Great Pyrenees mix weighing in at 75-pounds. She is a very special girl as she is partially deaf, but please don't let that be a deterrent, because what she lacks in hearing she makes up for in love and affection. She craves close physical contact and wants to be with her people at all times. She is very drawn to children and loves to go for walks. She's a very active and playful girl, who behaves wonderfully in public...even in crowds. She's 100% house-trained, and gets along well with other pets. Even though she can't hear she is very focused on protecting of her territory and will bark to let you know if something is amiss. If you are interested in adopting Ruby please call Kristen with the Great Pyrenees Association of Southern California Rescue or fill out an application online at www.GreatPyrRescue.org. The organization is also looking for foster families, especially in the San Diego area, who are able to foster this giant but gentle breed. So if you own your own home, or are not limited with weight restrictions by an HOA, please give then a call. And remember any fostering expenses you incur are tax-deductible, though expenses are generally picked up by the rescue organization!

Cooper
Breed: Australian shep mix

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders

All the pups have been in a San Diego foster home since early February and are up to date on all medical needs, fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered. They are now healthy, super sweet, loving and well-socialized. Cooper is an Australian Shepherd mix...good with dogs, cats, and all people. He's crate trained and does well on car rides.

Chihuahua/Beagle mix Cheegle
Age:
2 years old

Neutered Male
Organization:
Lucky Pup Dog Rescue of San Diego

(619) 756- 6376

Ace will be 2 years old in May. He's a Chihuahua/Beagle mix who was rescued from a shelter by Lucky Pup Dog Rescue before he was even born. His mother had 9 adorable puppies while in a foster home, and almost all the pups, and their mother ,were adopted, except for Ace. When he was a year old, Ace had surgery for a dislocated knee, but it heeled nicely, and he's good to go. He's super polite with people, even a little shy at first. He gets along great with other dogs, and loves cats. He'd do best in a home with children who are about 10 years old. He gets really excited when it's time to go for a walk, and after pulling a bit a first, he settles right in for a good stroll. He loves a routine, and is always ready for bed at 8 PM. He weighs about 20-pounds with a short, easy-to-care-for coat and he's 100% housetrained. Ace is neutered, and vaccinated.

Age:
3 years old

Spayed Female

Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue
Phone:
(858) 274-2940
Website: HollysGarden.com

Shelby is a delicate 3-year-old female Maltipoo, weighing in at just 9-pounds. She’s very petite and feminine. Rescued from a hoarder, she’s still a little shy, but extremely loving and gentle. Her foster Mom says she’s really come out of her shell in the few short weeks she has had her, and becomes more comfortable with people each day. Shelby rides well in the car, all the while trying desperately to sneak into a lap. Not having had a whole lot of them in her life, she is just getting used to baths, and all the other things that dogs learn when they’re younger. She’s like a kid in the candy store, and enjoying the good life in a loving home as she learns what life as a normal dog is all about. Her favorite resting place is perched high on the back of the couch …where she can be sure not to miss a thing! She enjoys running and playing with other dogs, hopping all around the backyard, seeming so happy to be out the situation she was in. She is almost completely housebroken, good in the car and walks well on a leash. Her fur will be beautiful when it grows out. We feel she will adjust very well and will be a real snuggle bug, once she is secure in a loving and predictable forever home.

She especially loves her trips to Fiesta Island’s dog beach. Matilda would do best in a home with access to a yard… the size of the yard doesn't matter. Matilda is up to date on vaccines, spayed, has had a full blood panel and urinalysis to ensure her health, and a dental to keep her smile sparkling bright. She just wants to be loved and add joy to your life! Please contact Lionel’s Legacy Senior Dog Rescue, to learn about adopting or fostering a mature, easy-going dog.

Colonel Sanders As featured on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!

Pit Bull Mix

10 years old

Phone:

Website:
www.pbrsd.org

Colonel is an older and calmer gentleman, who thinks he's a large lap dog. He had a tumor on his leg which resulted in an amputation. PBRSD has taken care of that for him and he seems much happier without the useless leg. He's a pretty easy going, happy guy, and he loves to ride in the car with his head out the window. While he seems dog friendly, we are not so sure about his ability to live with smaller dogs. We think he'd like to be with a same sized dog or be the only spoiled senior in the home. At 10 years old, we think he's earned some quiet time and spoiling.

Morrison ran in 209 races during his career, before retiring and becoming a couch-potato. He’s happy, playful and active and loves his stuffy toys.

Midwestern Lurcher
Age:
3 years old
Sex:
Neutered Male
Organization:
Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd in El Cajon
Phone:
(877) HoundSavers

Berroco is a three-four year old Lurcher residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. He arrived in October through the efforts of the American Lurcher Project in Ohio. A typical Midwestern Lurcher is the result of breeding a retired racing greyhound with a hunting breed, more than likely a Coonhound in this case. These dogs are used for non-sanctioned events called field trial racing, conducted through rough and uneven terrain in forests and fields. Many groups nationwide, including GAC, have teamed with the Lurcher Project in accepting these worthy dogs into their adoption programs. The Lurchers typically have the personality traits of a greyhound and love lounging around as much as their greyhound cousins! Berroco cannot live in a home with a cat but he is small dog friendly and would do best living in a home with older children.

All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning. They are then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and children before being profiled for a home.

Tinkle and Bubbles need to be adopted together, and because they're considered seniors, they have a special adoption fee of only $60 for both dogs. Smaller dogs live much longer than large breeds, so they still have the potential for a nice long life. They are very happy and playful together. They love to romp around and go on walks. They love everybody, including other animals, and gentle children who can respect their size and age. Both are spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is located at 1275 N. Marshall St, open Tuesday through Saturday, and you can find Tinkle and Bubbles in Kennel #29!

If you love smushey faces and under-bites with a snaggle-tooth, this 8-month old Puggle puppy is the one for you. Wednesday is an adorable Pug/Beagle mix who broke her leg several months ago, and was in a splint, but her previous owners never took her in for a follow up visit...until weeks later when they brought her back to the vet complaining of the smell of rotting flesh. She had developed gangrene, so the owners left her at the vet, and they called in The Rescued Dog to save the day. Thankfully, under the skilled care of the vet, she only lost a toe, but her leg and life were saved! She now lives in a loving foster home with 2 young kids and one very old dog and has adjusted amazingly well. Wednesday is almost 100% house trained, knows “sit†and is very eager to learn. She is smart and very food motivated She's a goofy, fun loving puppy who enjoys lots of action and play along with social outings and walks. She goes everywhere with her foster family.

Annie is a young long-haired Dachshund weighing 8-pounds who was rescued from an LA shelter on the day she was to be euthanized. She was very sick and wouldn't eat, drink, or even pick up her head. It took a week to bring her back from near death, but she has improved daily and shown how sweet and loving she is. When she was healthy enough to be spayed, the vet removed some cancerous mammary tumors and now we can only hope for the best outcome, and to find her someone who will love her for the rest of her life, no matter how long that may be. Annie deserves to be a loved and cherished member of a family. She is active, loves walks, is house-trained and very smart. She's spayed, fully vaccinated, and microchipped.

Breed: Greyhound mix
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd. in El Cajon
Phone: (877) 478-8364
Website: www.HoundSavers.org

Lobsterpot arrived at the Greyhound Adoption Center in October through the efforts of the American Lurcher Project in Ohio. A typical Midwestern lurcher is generally the result of a NGA (National Greyhound Association) registered greyhound and a hunting breed, more than likely a Coonhound. These dogs are used for non-sanctioned events called field trial racing, which is conducted through rough and uneven terrain in forests and fields. This is yet another way to exploit the speed of the greyhound. When the dogs slow down, stop making money or get injured, they are abandoned or disposed of. There are literally thousands of these dogs out there waiting to be rescued. Last year GAC, and many other rescue groups throughout the United States, teamed up with the American Lurcher Project in accepting these dogs into their adoption programs. The lurchers have the personality of a greyhound and enjoy lounging around just as their greyhound cousins! Lobsterpot is thought to be about 5-6 years of age. He cannot live in a home with a cat but he is excellent around small dogs and he would make a wonderful companion for a busy home with older children.

All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning.

Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone:
(619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)

Allana is a beautiful young, 40-pound Husky who was given up by her owner who already used her for breeding, twice, and then decided he no longer wants her because whenever she goes into heat, she gets lonely and tries to escape the yard. This behavior will be remedied, of course, by spaying her, and placing her in a home where she can be indoors with other happy dogs. Allana prefers the companionship of other dogs and people to being left alone in a yard. At just 1.5 years of age, she's sweet, smart, and very observant. She loves to watch everything happening around her...she doesn't miss anything. She's now spayed, fully vaccinated and looking for a permanent, or even a temporary foster home where she can get some regular exercise and socialization with other dogs. She rides well on the car, does well on the leash, but she's not familiar with cats. Please call or text Animal Rescuers Without Borders, or go to ARWOB.org to fill out an adoption or foster application.

Age: 4 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue
Phone: (858) 274-2940
Tommy's webpage: http://www.hollysgarden.com/tommy.html

Tommy is a 4-year-old, apricot Poodle/Shih Tzu mix who weighs 12-pounds, does not shed, and would be considered "hypo-allergenic". He was petrified with fear at the shelter, but since the minute he walked out of that place, he has been a perfect, happy gentleman, and has been wonderful in his foster home. He's very cuddly and loving...the perfect lap dog. He's laid back, mellow and doesn't bark unless provoked. Tommy walks well on a leash, is great with other dogs, and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. He does get scared if confined to a kennel or left alone, so we would like to find him a full-time companion. Otherwise he's as happy as can be. His foster mom says he even stands on his hind legs for a long time and is very trainable. Call or log onto HollysGarden.com for an adoption application.

Sex: male neutered
Organization: Open Arms Rescue
Phone: (760) 470-7643
Website: www.openarmsrescue.org

Cannoli is a 5-year-old Chihuahua weighing just 4 pounds. Tiny in stature, big in personality, he has lots of energy and should probably be an only dog because he gets a little bossy with other dogs. He's a bit of a diva in that he loves to be carried around. He actually prefers being carried around in a purse to walking along side his people. Cannoli is paper trained, doggy door trained, and would be good in an apartment. He's very affectionate and just loves to be around people! He's also very playful, a good kisser, and loves to cuddle. He's fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. To learn more about adopting this sweet boy, please go to OpenArmsRescue.org and fill out an application or call (760)470-7643.

Rio
is a wonderful little guy, very affectionate and outgoing. He gets along well with other dogs, walks beautifully on a leash. He loves the kitty we have in the rescue. We don't know his history as he was rescued from a high kill shelter, but he really, really likes to be with people and dogs, so he wouldn't do well be left alone for many hours at time. He weighs about 15 pounds, and will need to be groomed on a regular basis. He still has quite a bit of puppy energy and could benefit from a doggie training class. Rio would be great with children over ten.

Age: 4 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)
Website: www.ARWOB.org

This sweet little 20-pound girl is a very happy outgoing social pup who is great with cats and dogs. Marie does well in the car and is crate trained. She does sad little howls when she is left alone in the yard, but she's as happy as can be when she is around her foster mom's dog, so we think she would do best in a home with other dogs, or in a home where someone is always around to keep her company. She can't help it if she's just a social butter fly who loves others. She's a typical happy, healthy puppy. While she's just 20-pounds now, she has the potential to reach 50, full grown. She also has 2 brothers: Dimitri, who loos just like her, and Vlad, who is mostly a black Lab. They're currently looking for foster parents as the group has too many dogs, and not enough fosters for small adult dogs and puppies!

For those of you looking for a perfect dog, here he is! Ninja is a well-behaved, housebroken Jack Russell mix. He's always happy and fun, and his foster mom says he currently lives in a condo with a large dog, and two cats. He loves all people, he's excellent in the car, and he isn't destructive or barky when left home alone. As all Jack Russell Terriers are, he's super smart and has learned to sit and stay while waiting for food or to go outside. He loves his food and toys, but isn't possessive about either. He wound up with Animal Rescuers Without Borders after being hit by a car and suffering head trauma. He may always have a bit of a tilt to his head, and when excited he'll make a couple of circles, but it doesn't affect him otherwise. He's amazingly affectionate, and loves to give hugs and kisses, or play with other animals. Ninja is 20-pounds, full grown. If you're interested in adopting Ninja, or becoming a foster fanily for a dog or cat, please visit ARWOB.org and fill out an application, or call (619) 977-3593.

She's still young with a moderate energy level, and would probably enjoy a home with a yard she can play in and get her daily exercise. She'd also make an excellent walking partner. Madonna truly enjoys being with people, and needs a family who will include her in their family pack, so that she can be indoors with the family at night, in a soft, comfy bed of her own. She also seems to respond well to positive reinforcement, and should be easy to train. Madonna is patiently waiting to be noticed at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall St.. She's in kennel #18, and her ID# is 19004.

Her brother was adopted in December, leaving Sugar to wait for a family of her own. She's now in a new foster home and enjoys going to doggy day care every day. No one who has ever met her can understand why such a great little girl hasn't been adopted. Sugar is crate trained, walks well on leash, enjoys car rides and is good with cats, children and dogs.

When they pulled Brandy from the shelter, she came out of her kennel, wagging her tail and giving cautious kisses....and since that day, she has been one of the most appreciative little girls they have ever rescued. She's called Ballerina Brandy because she dances for treats, when you come home, or any time she's happy. She loves toys, car rides and walking on a leash. She loves being held like a baby, too. She's great with children and other dogs. We'll never know about her past, but we're certain her future is bright!

Bailey is a perfect little lady. She LOVES everyone, she's great with kids, other dogs but would be best in a home without cats. She's house trained, good on the leash, and knows some basic commands. She was clearly once someone's girl, but they tragically never came to claim her from the shelter.

Chihuahua Rescue was called in to pick up Cookie and four newborn puppies when the previous owner was "detained". She had two painfully neglected cherry eyes and was malnourished. In addition to having surgery to fix her eyes, Cookie is now spayed, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and healthy. Her four puppies are also ready for new homes and are all well-socialized. Cookie is 3 years old, 10-pounds, playful, housetrained and loves to sleep under the covers. She truly enjoys being with people as much as possible. In an attempt to get as many of their adoptable Chihuahuas into homes for the holidays, adoption fees have been greatly reduced for the next four weeks, so now is the time to contact Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego. You can fill out an application online at RescueAChihuahua.com or call 858-277-3557.

Belle is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She's a lab mixed with some breed that causes her coat to reflect black, brown, red, gold, chestnut and orange colors when you look closely. Possibly some sort of mastiff? Born with a deformity in her front leg, she was deemed "unadoptable" and headed straight to death row at the Lancaster Shelter. She caught the eye of a Lab & Friends volunteer who was there that day, she was rescued and temperament tested....she scored an A+ on her temp test, by the way! Since being with Labradors & Friends, she has been fitted with a prosthetic leg, which she is refusing to use so far, but with some work and rehab, the goal is to get her to be comfortable walking on it. It would be wonderful to find a family dedicated to her rehab. Belle is an active, happy, easy-going, lovable dog. She's totally housetrained, has wonderful manners, well-socialized and enjoys riding in the car. She's great with other dogs, and kids!

Zeus is a 10 month old, neutered male Lab/Pyrenees Mix, weighing approx 80-85lbs, Current on shots and micro chipped. He is great with kids, even the younger ones, very playful, a little goofy, yet has a calm, sweet demeanor. Zeus loves people , gets along well with other dogs (big or small), enjoys the dog park, beach and taking walks on leash, he responds to a whistle on the recall and loves to play ball, he has not been cat tested but he likes to bark at the cat next door, so probably will do best without any kitty friends. Don't hesitate to call now: (619) 517.7505 or GreatPyrRescue.org

Sheela is a 2 1/2 year old Shepherd mix (has a bobtail) and weighs about 48 lbs. Sheela has lived at a rescue in Ensenada, Mx since she was 3months old or so. Sheela has come a long way since being in a loving foster home. She is great with everyone; dogs, puppies, cats, kids. Sheela loves to sleep with you or in her own bed. She loves to play with other dogs. She likes to play with toys and in... the water hose. She comes when called and is learning to walk well on a leash. Sheela loves to be in the same room with her humans but is fine being left alone during normal work hours. She is not much of a barker but will let you know if something is out of the ordinary. Sheela will need a very patient home with loving people. She also uses a doggie door. Sheela is housetrained but sometimes has accidents so will need to be reminded to go outside frequently. Sheela does not have good control of her anal muscles and sometimes poops whiles she walks. It has only happened an average of 1 time per week. She is currently undergoing tests to see if it is neurological and can be helped. She also has trouble getting up at times. She is spayed, microchiped and current on vaccines. She must stay on a grain free diet. Visit: Secondchancedogrescue.org or Second Chance Dog Rescue, San Diego, California for an app, or call (619) 721-DOGS (3647)

Frances is a Moluccan Cockatoo who became part of the PEAC foster flock in 2012 when his previous owners surrendered him saying he had a screaming problem. When the foster first took him in, Frances would not allow anyone to handle him, and he had a lot of phobic behaviors, probably because he had been completely cage-bound and isolated in a back room in his previous home. Frances has improved greatly, and has learned to play with and destroy many types of toys, but he's still working on "stepping up", and prefers to be in the company of other parrots, as he's more at ease in a flock environment. He still screams in the morning and at night, and will require someone who has a great deal of Cockatoo experience, but in the right environment, he's going to make someone a wonderful companion. Contact PEAC at the number above.

Phone: (619) 469-8771

Angel is a happy, plump 8-year-old, spayed, short haired tabby who absolutely loves people. She was found outside the gates of the National Cat Protection Society, in the bushes, where she was meowing for help. Even though she is declawed, she was abandoned at night to fend for herself. She was lucky to have been unharmed and she was very thankful for being rescued. Angel loves having her back scratched and does a funny licking motion when being scratched. She's been placed on a diet right because she loves to over eat... and she can stand to lose a little, just to get her back to being healthy again. Angel loves to talk and loves to be picked up and carried around. She tolerates other animals, but prefers to be the only animal in the house getting the attention. She's litter box trained, fully vaccinated, FeLV tested, treated for fleas, dewormed, and microchipped. Contact the National Cat Protection Society, located in Spring Valley at 9031 Birch Street, open Tuesday through Saturday, Noon to 4:30.

Remy is all boy, and an absolute doll. Why his previous owner surrendered him to a high-kill animal shelter is a complete mystery. He just loves attention, purrs up a storm, climbs into any available lap, and has perfect litter-box manners. Of course, he's neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Remy has gained 3-pounds since he was rescued from the shelter. He loves his food...wet or dry, it's all good! He uses a scratching post nicely and is very sweet and gentle when being held. His foster mom says he likes to roll over to have his belly rubbed...just like a puppy. He loves to run and play with his toys and he gets along well with other cats and the resident dog in his foster home. How great is it that a foster family has already experienced all there is to know about Remy, so that there will be no surprises for the new adopters! Contact Southern California Siamese Rescue today to find out how you can adopt Remy, or become a foster home for a kitty in need!

Samson is a 7-year-old, 98-pound, neutered male Labrador retriever mix available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus. Samson is your ultimate ball dog.

He’s a happy, friendly guy, and when he isn’t busy playing ball he’s happy to lounge at your feet or share his love and affection. Samson can be a little possessive of his toys – he lays on them so he can keep them all to himself – so he will do best as the only dog in his new home and would prefer older children or adults only. Samson’s $25 adoption fee includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. The Humane Society's Escondido Campus is located at 3450 E.

I had to learn about the joys of indoor living when I first joined the rescue because they're pretty sure I lived an outside life as a breeding dog. I have learned that the couch is absolutely the best form of heaven! I currently live with a 1.5 year old pittie mix who thinks I'm his momma. I can be selective about my canine friends but if I love them then we are BFFs. I don't live with any kids, but my foster parent thinks I would be wonderful with little ones of all ages. I'm very calm around people, I don't jump, and I take food very slowly and gently. People tell me that I'm more adoptable if I know things. So far I've learned my name, sit, lay down, roll over, and go to bed. I'm crate trained and 100% potty trained! Call or visit www.pbrsd.org to schedule a time when we can meet.

Maggie does very well with kids, but she's not good with cats and can ease into a home with another dog...preferably a boy dog. She currently shares her foster home with a 3-year-old male bulldog and an 8 year old boy. She's very low key, and loves to snuggle. She absolutely loves any attention, even from strangers. Plus, she loves to be around kids while they're playing. Maggie is crate trained and will put herself in "time-out" whenever she's been naughty! She relies on a schedule every day and seems to do pretty wel when she's left at home with her foster brother.

Tootsie came to Parrot Education and Adoption Center In April of this year. Before that, she'd been with the same family for her entire life...13 years...but when they moved into an RV, Tootsie couldn't adjust to the cramped living quarters and tiny cage, and she began to pull her chest and leg feathers out due to stress. She's now in a foster home where she has grown back a large amount of down, and they hope she'll soon regrow some of her feathers, as well. She's now able to sleep and reside in a very large cage which is much more appropriate in size for a bird like her. She's loving and loves to cuddle and be around her people. She does tend to call out when she gets lonely, and they're working on redirecting this behavior to a more constructive one, such as playing with toys and other fun ways for her to occupy her mind when she's alone. Tootsie knows a few words such as hello and I love you, but is still too shy to speak in front of people but will chatter on and on when she's alone or in the company of other parrots. Tootsie is a fast learner and just wants to be in a forever home that will love her and care for her the way she deserves to be.

Sweet Isaac was caught by rescuers who had set traps to catch and neuter feral cats. It became obvious that Isaac was very friendly, and he was taken to a Rescue House vet. He quickly became the staff favorite and was dubbed “Mr. Personality” because he’s affectionate, outgoing and follows people like a dog. He’ll talk to you, snuggle, kiss…and steal food off your plate. His charming nature is good with everyone and everything, including other cats and dogs. One thing to consider, however, is that Isaac tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which is a cat-only virus. It can’t be passed to humans or other species, but because it can be passed to another cat through a serious bite, he may be best as an only cat, or in a home with other FIV cats. Isaac is not a fighter, but there’s always a chance another cat might attack him, so he should always be an indoor kitty. I don’t think it’s that big a deal for most people because not everyone wants 50 cats…but Isaac has been without a home for a very long time. We hope you’ll consider making him part of your family. Call the Rescue House today for more information.

More info about FIV: FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a cat-only virus and can NOT be passed to humans or other species. For Isaac, he most likely fought with a hostile FIV+ cat while he was doing his best, fending for himself. FIV is NOT easily passed between cats that live together as transmission occurs through a serious, penetrating bite wound (or blood transfusion); not a frequent occurrence among domestic cats. An interesting fact is that any cat that has ever been vaccinated for FIV will then show a positive test result.

FIV is a type of "slow virus" that may affect the cats' immune system over a period of years, but as long as FIV+ cats are not exposed to diseases that their immune system cannot handle well, they can live long normal lives. Since their immune system can be weakened, they should visit a vet at the first sign of illness and should be fed a high-quality diet. A good article about FIV from The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary can be found at www.bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Immunodeficiency-Virus-FIV. FIV+ cats can live quite long, happy and normal lives, often with no symptoms at all.

The perfect Easter bunny, .a chocolate bunny, which everyone loves and will most likely be devoured by the end of the holiday. A stuffed bunny, which is the ideal children's gift, as you can put it in the toy chest and forget about it when your child tires of it, and a battery operated chick, which is adorable and will last until the battery dies. What ISN'T a great Easter gift is a BUNNY! They're living, breathing little creatures, who need love, attention and constant care for the next 8 to 10 years. You should only adopt a bunny if you have done your research and are sure about making a long-term commitment. If your children want to pet bunnies, there are shelters full of them, or consider fostering one temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Liz is a super sweet "HOE-TOE" bunny who was being transported from San Jose to Vegas, when her adopter changed her mind. So Liz wound up here in San Diego without a home. She's a nice girl who is a bit shy but warms up with a little attention. She'll be great for a home with adults and children over 7 years old.

Ralphie has been a part of the Parrot Education & Adoption Center for two years. He was part of a wild flock near L.A. until he was hit by a car, breaking his leg and bursting his air sacs. He was about to be euthanized at a shelter when a volunteer called PEAC and made arrangements to drive him to San Diego where he was immediately seen by a vet for emergency surgery. He's been in his foster home ever since. At first, he was terrified of humans and would hiss and growl, and needed to be fed with a turkey baster. With patience, time and love, he's now part of a human and parrot flock. He has an enthusiastic wolf whistle and says "Hello" clearly and sweetly, and is beginning to mumble along to the song "Old McDonald Had A Farm". What a story!

"The Bolt" was found wondering in a neighborhood in San Diego and nobody ever claimed him. 90% of his diet is grasses and weeds. He thrives in a backyard that has Bermuda grass hay with some dandelions and other native weeds. We supplement him with hibiscus flowers and leaves, rose flowers, Bermuda grass hay and other dark green leafy greens. African Sulcata Tortoises do not hibernate, like the native California Desert Tortoise, they require an outdoor enclosure with a minimum space for a larger one of 30 x 30 and a heated type house to sleep in. They love water, but do not swim. They enjoy a mud bath in the summer to keep them cool as well as lay in. The yard must be secure and free of other animals. They get up to 200 lbs and live up to 100 years. The are good pets because: They are kept outdoors, are great for people with allergies to hair and are fun to have around. They interact well with people and love the attention when you feed them. The San Diego Turtle and Tortoise helps you decide if this type of Tortoise is right for you and your family. There is no adoption fee for the animals, but they do require you to become a member which is $25.00. Monthly meetings are in Balboa Park and the schedule is on their website. They are FREE to the public.
