Cooper is a 5 month old Chihuahua puppy who was brought to the rescue with a broken leg. The surgery was done to fix the break, and how he's a happy, healthy puppy...full of energy, and can run with the best of them! He's a very smart little boy, expected to weigh about 5 to 6 pounds as an adult. He's very sweet, trained to sleep in his crate at night, and does very well with his potty manners. As with all puppies, Cooper does need some extra time for training and learning the ropes....so he can't be left alone for long hours. He is already neutered and has had all his shots, so he's ready for a forever home that will keep up his good habits. He does love to play with other dogs, so another small playmate in the home would be wonderful. For more info please contact Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego at 858-277-3557 or go to their web site ChihuahuaRescueOfSanDiego.com where they have info about fostering, or adopting one of their countless little dogs.

Mary is an unbelievably easy-going girl with the softest curly coat and a wonderful disposition. She is great with everyone, adults, children and dogs, alike. Her foster family says she's completely housebroken, and low energy enough not to need a big yard. She walks well on a leash, sleeps quietly on her doggie bed, is mild-mannered and follows commands. Because of Mary's sweet disposition, there were foster families lining up for the chance to foster her, but now it's time to find her a forever family of her own. Call or visit LabsAndMore.org for more information or email doginfo@labsandmore.org. Mary and lots of Labs will be at this Saturday's adoption event at 10:30 a.m. at RoadRunner Sports, 5549 Copley Drive in Kearny Mesa. .

Website: TheRescuedDog.org

If you're looking for a smart, affectionate, highly-trainable, active companion, Bronco is your guy! He's a 2-year-old red heeler who was turned into the shelter because his owners could no longer care for him. He's your typical adult cattle dog: active and driven. His foster family reports that he's a quick study and loves learning new things, and is the best snuggler they've ever met. He's fully crate trained, house trained, knows basic obedience and is happily learning a few stunt tricks. too. Taking regular walks with the family is his favorite thing, his adorable bounce when he sees the leash come out is quite endearing. Bronco is great with other dogs, and could be successfully trained to live with cats. Ideally he'd fit into a forever home with people who love seeing their dog learn and grow, as this guy is proving himself to be an amazing companion in a nurturing environment! He thrives with people who have strong leadership skills and a love of working with your dog. Bronco comes with one complimentary session from a trainer to help him continue to adjust to city life in a new home. Bronco is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations.http://therescueddog.org/available-dogs/dog-adoption-application

Tobias was rescued off the streets of Baja as a stray. He was underweight, malnourished, with parasites and very weak. It's taken several months, but he's finally a healthy 56-pounds, and ready for a family of his own. He is calm in the house, sleeps in a doggie bed in his foster family's home, and enjoys car rides. Tobias absolutely loves other dogs and enjoys playing around. He's not the best with cats, but he is fantastic with children and adults alike. He'd benefit from some doggie obedience classes, as he's still somewhat goofy like a puppy, but he's still a good boy. Unfortunately, he's even losing his foster home this Wednesday because the foster mom is moving. So even if you're not ready for a long-time, permanent commitment, please consider becoming a temporary foster family for this boy.

Raleigh was rescued at just 4 months of age, and adopted to a woman who just returned him as she's moving to New York City, into a tiny apartment. It may be for the best, as she worked 8-to-9 hours a day, and Raleigh was cooped up inside a crate all that time, with only weekend outings to the dog park, beaches and hikes. Since he's an Aussie mix, a dog like this really needs more activity and socialization. The good news is he's spectacularly housetrained and great in the car. He's good off-leash with other dogs, but not okay with cats. Because he spent most his time alone or with a single female, he's still a little unsure when he meets men, especially when they're wearing baseball hats....but this is a fear that can be overcome with proper socialization. He's a lover, and an ideal adopter would be willing to take him to obedience or agility classes. Call or text Animal Rescuers Without Borders today, or go ARWOB.org

"Who's the tiny fellow at the El Cajon Animal Shelter who will steal your heart? It's me, SHANGHAI. Nice to meet you! I'm a four-year-old Chihuahua fellow, and I love to be held. I'm very small and very sweet, so you'll probably want to take me just about everywhere you go. I'd be a loving and cherished family pet, and I get along well with other dogs. I guess it's true that good things come in small packages. The shelter staff is fairly certain that I've already been house trained. I'd probably be well-suited to apartment or condo living. I sure hope you'll come visit me so you can see what a truly wonderful little guy I am. They have a really nice play yard here at the shelter, so we can spend some time getting to know each other. I have so much love to give, and I think that will be apparent when you look into my warm and gentle eyes. I hope to see you very soon! Love, Shanghai". Kennel #11.

Phone: (

Sal is a 12-15-year old African Sulcata Tortoise available for adoption from the San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society, after being found wandering the streets of San Diego. He'll be available to meet at this weekend's Turtle & Tortoise Show in Balboa Park...it's an event you don't want to miss, especially if you have curious kids who love to learn about these amazing creatures. They're also ideal for people with pet allergies, as these guys are hypo-allergenic. While Sal is 20-30 pounds now, he may reach 150-pounds full-grown, and he'll outlive all of us...possibly to the ripe old age of 100. He requires an outdoor enclosure, with a heated place to sleep at night, and he mostly eats grasses, weeds, kale, lettuce, roses and hibiscus. Learn more at the San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Show in Balboa Park, this weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Casa Del Prado. It's free to the public, bring the kids.

"Hello, all of you good people! My name is Pippin, and I'm a one-and-a-half-year-old Miniature Schnauzer mix who's looking for a kind and loving person or family to call my own. I'm friendly and very playful, and I get along GREAT with other dogs. I'd absolutely love to go to a home that has another playful dog like me. I need a good amount of exercise to be at my best, and I'll need a yard in my new home so I can run around. I excel at playing fetch, I enjoy snuggling, and I'd be a great family pet. I'm a great size to be that wonderful little house dog you've been looking for, and I've already been house trained. Please come to the El Cajon Animal Shelter so you can see my shiny coat, my cute face, and my happy disposition. I'll probably jump around quite a bit when you see me in my kennel, and it's because I'm very excited to get out of my kennel and go to the play yard to have some fun. Just ask our helpful shelter staff if we can get to know each other better in the yard, then you can sit on a bench under a lovely tree while we get better acquainted. Or maybe you'd like to toss a ball around for me so I can show you my abilities. I have a lot of love to give, so please stop by soon and get to know me. Love, Pippin" Kennel #63.

Larsen was brought into a high-kill shelter in the LA-area with his brother, Lowell (picture of Lowell). They were estimated to be about 4-to-5 weeks old at the time, and barely eating on their own. Volunteers with Southern California Siamese Rescue noticed the kittens and made arrangements for them to be transported to a foster home in San Diego where they currently reside. Larsen is a Lynx-point Siamese mix and he's now about 10 weeks old. His blue eyes and loving personality are two of his best traits. He loves to play with his brother and his favorite toys are all-things-feathered. Larsen loves to be held and will start to purr instantly whenever he's picked up.

Personality, good looks, and a positive outlook on life: Chip has it all! This handsome man was found running around in the desert and was picked up by a Good Samaritan. He has a great temperament and an amazing attitude towards new dogs and new people, including children. He’s social, fun, and has yet to meet a pooch or person he doesn't instantly consider to be his friend. He’s great at the park and the beach, and is well-behaved in any social setting. Chip is athletic and loves to play fetch and romp around with his friends. They think he’s a poodle, possibly mixed with Bedlington terrier to give him a little extra length in his legs, and an extra dose of cuteness everywhere else! He weighs 15-pounds, which is the ideal size for almost any living situation, condo, apartment or house. Chip is crate trained, house-trained, and has picked up his basic commands in just a few weeks with his foster family!

It's a story we hear too often in rescue. "I'm moving and can't find a place to live with my dog". That's why it's so important to find Gia a family who will keep her forever, even if they choose to move in the future. It may take some looking, but there are lots of pet-friendly rentals in San Diego. Gia is a purebred, 1.5 year old, long-haired Chihuahua who is very lady-like and always smiling. She prances around waving her beautiful bushy tail like an accordion fan. She's a great walker on a leash, and sits very nicely in a shopping cart. She's very playful, likes most everyone, she actually knows how to use a doggie door, and she likes sleeping with her humans so she feels safe. E-mail Dog@RescueAChihuahua.com or call (858) 277-3557 for more information. Applications are also on the web at www.RescueAChi.com. All Chihuahuas are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before adoption, and if you can't adopt, ask about fostering a Chihuahua on a temporary basis.

Hello, friends! My name is Pee Wee, and I'm one of the cutest and most charming little fellas that you'll ever meet. I'm a very friendly Chihuahua/ Dachshund mix, and I'm about three years old. Even though I'm a very small guy, my charm and zest for life knows no bounds. I absolutely love to play fetch, and I'll even sit for you before you throw the ball. I'm a fairly high-energy pooch, so I'd do best in a home with a yard, and I'd love to go for a daily walk so I can get my exercise and be at my best. I love everybody, including other dogs, so I'd be a fun-loving and affectionate family pet. The shelter staff is pretty sure that I've already been house trained, but I'll probably need some additional guidance once I get to my new home. Oh, please, won't you come visit me at the El Cajon Animal Shelter so we can spend some time getting to know each other? They have a great play yard; the perfect place for us to get better acquainted. I've been dreaming of a new home where I'll be loved and cherished, so I hope you'll make my dream come true.

Nike is a 7-month-old border collie weighing 36-pounds. Ever wonder about how to tire out your Aussies? We found the answer.... a Border Collie!! Nike runs as fast as the wind...hops, jumps, twists, turns and keeps her Aussie foster siblings moving! They come inside, tongues hanging down and she just moves on to another activity. She's hilarious! Obviously a lot of energy but it's full of fun and happiness. She was turned in, due to ankle nipping and herding children, but is doing well with non-running kids over the age of 8. She LOVES other dogs, and hasn't been around cats, but due to her herding instincts, they recommend no kitties. She still needs basic training to continue her good manners and to capitalize on her intelligence and agility. Nike needs a family with another playful dog who has the time, energy, and humor to get ahead of, or at least keep up with her. Contact Becky with Aussie Rescue in San Diego at 619-469-3748

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.

Roy looks like just an adorable puppy, but he's actually 9 to 12 months old, and pretty much full grown at 12 pounds. When he was pulled from the San Bernardino's Devore facility, he was covered in ticks and fleas. This sweet boy patiently let volunteers clean him up, and now he's happily hanging out in his foster home waiting for a forever family to come along. Roy is a very affable little guy, who gets along well with his 2 foster dog siblings, as well as his human foster family. He seems especially fond of the family's children. His foster mom also has 2 kittens and Roy does really well with them. Roy is good in the car and is excellent on leash. He's working on his potty training and he's 90% there. He's a smart little guy, who would do well with a basic obedience class. Roy is also sweet and easy-going, and will make a good snuggle buddy. Call The Rescued Dog or visit www.TheRescuedDog.org to meet this handsome little man.

Smalls is a happy Papillon, who was recently shaved down at the groomers. He's a wonderful dog, smart, funny, attentive, mindful and housebroken. His foster family says he's the most well-adjusted guy they've ever met. Although he is 'small', barely 8 lbs., he's a sturdy dog with a big personality. He'd do well in an active household ...but he also knows when it's time to chill. He bathes well, walks beautifully on a leash, loves the car, and he's up for joining you no matter what you've got on your agenda. He's the perfect dog to tag along wherever you go. He will be beautiful once his hair grows out ...but we think he's pretty cute right now. Call Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue today and make an appointment to meet him!

Brewer is a 6-month-old mini Australian Shepherd mix weighing 16-pounds. He'll be about 20-24 pounds when full grown. He's a sweet little guy who has been great with other dogs in his foster home, but he's still a little shy with new people, which is an easily reversible result of not having been well socialized before he was rescued...all that's changing now that he's in a good foster home, of course. Brewer will be the perfect dog for agility training, and an intelligent and great companion. His adoption fee covers his basic obedience classes, so that we can be sure he'll be raised properly, and get through his puppyhood with flying colors. If you're interested in adopting Brewer please call Becky with Aussies & Others Dog Rescue today, and make an appointment to get together at your earliest convenience.

Paige is a 14-year-old spayed female pit bull/sharpei mix available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society. Don't let Paige's senior status fool you! She is very active and loves to go for walks, and she's an expert snuggler. Paige is deaf, but she doesn't let her special needs slow her down one bit. She seems to get excited whenever she sees kids so she probably would do well with them, and she would prefer not to share her attention with other dogs. She's been at the shelter since August, so please share this special girl to help her find a home soon! Paige’s $25 adoption fee in June includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. Please note that all adult dog and cat adoption fees are just $25 in June, so today is the last day to take advantage of the low adoption fees!

Lambert is a gentle, wonderful, deaf Boxer available for adoption from the El Cajon Animal Shelter. He's 5 1/2 years old, and at the shelter because one of the dogs in the previous home didn't like him. HE gets along just fine with other dogs, and he's an all-around friendly, mellow guy. He's very respectful and walks nicely on a leash. As I mentioned, he's deaf, so you need to get his attention visually. He knows sign language, and if you can learn how to communicate with him, it'll all work out. Benefits of a deaf dog? No barking when the doorbell rings, no barking when the doorbell on TV rings, no barking or howling when all the other dogs on the block start to chime in together. He'd be great in a home with older kids, and sleeps soundly indoors on his doggie bed at night. He loves to be around his people. Visit Lambert at the El Cajon Animal Shelter on North Marshall Street, Tuesday through Saturday. He's waiting in Kennel #49, and you can take him out to play in the play-yard. .

Gracie is a 2 year old, spayed female Boxer/Pittie mix for adoption.

Her foster family says she is completely housebroken and a sweet, happy bundle of love! She's great at dog beach, loves to swim and fetch her ball when you throw it in the water, and she gets along great with other dogs at the beach...but she'd be better in a one-dog family where she doesn't need to share her home. She's wonderful off-leash, listens well to voice-commands, and has had professional training. She enjoys sleeping with her humans, and will make someone extremely happy for the rest of her life. If you'd like to meet Gracie, call Aussies & Others dog rescue at 619-469-3748 and you can make an appointment with Gracie's foster family that knows and loves her so very much.

Cousteau is a 4 year old Bichon/Poodle who weighs about 11 lbs..  This boy obviously came from a caring home.   He is a lovely boy, with good manners .  Cousteau is affectionate, gentle and a great cuddle bug.   His hair is the kind of hair you just can't keep your hands off of and he's the kind of boy that will make you feel like  caressing him all day long.  He walks well on a leash and loves the car.   He is an all around gentleman with a good attitude towards humans and dogs alike.   He will make a wonderful companion and will stand out in a crowd for his good looks and  great demeanor.​​

Kile is a petite, 4-year-old Maltese mix weighing 10-pounds. He was pulled out of a high-kill shelter, literally on his death bed. He had shut down so badly at the shelter that he was simply wasting away. He'd given up on life. All it took was some love and care in a good foster home to show his sweet, loving, happy personality. Kile loves to play and go for walks, and will be the first one at the door to greet you when you come home. He's blind in one eye due to an old injury, but if it doesn't bother you, it certainly doesn't bother him. And when his beautiful curly hair grows out, it's doubtful anyone will ever notice. He loves other dogs and seems to have a perpetual smile on his adorable little face. His foster family says he's fantastic! Call Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue today, and maybe you and Kile will be the perfect match! Oh, and Kile's been on the CW Animal House before. CLICK HERE to see his first video.

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.

Danny is a 1-year-old tri-colored Australian Shepherd, and a beautiful specimen at that! Gorgeous coloring and fur, and he weighs 54-pounds. He's also lucky enough to still have his beautiful tail. Danny was left at a shelter with a broken leg that his family could not afford to fix. He received the veterinary care he needed, and he's been in recovery for 10-weeks now. He's doing great and was released for adoption by the doctors just last week. He's still on limited activity, but is so happy to be able to play with his friends and run after the ball again. He also loves to go on walks. Danny will make an excellent family pet who will love any other friendly dogs you may already have, or any you take him to meet at the off-leash dog parks. He's housebroken, rides really well in the car, and other than a little counter-surfing, he's very well-behaved indoors. Call Becky with Aussies & Others today to meet this handsome boy!

For women only, SUGAR is a Male, Citron Crested Cockatoo. He's 15 years old, and, like many 'toos, he loves to be the center of attention and join in flock/family activities. Sugar came from a home that was not prepared to handle the personality of a ‘too and thus he developed some not so nice habits which we have been working on resolving through positive reinforcement training. He's in absolutely gorgeous feather in spite of a sub-optimal diet prior to entering our foster program. He currently is on a pelleted diet that is supplemented with lots of fresh vegetables and fruit to provide some variety for him to enjoy. Though he loves men he tends to become over stimulated when being handled by them and when not the center of attention from any individual man he will begin to scream and act out. With that said we feel he would be best suited in a home with only women, as his screaming has been very difficult to train out of him as his connection to men is extremely strong. He speaks appropriately and is adapting well to life with his new flock.

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.

This is Shasta and Frostie, two pups were from another preventable and accidental pregnancy. By the way, there are plenty of low to no-cost spay/neuter services around the county if you need them. Their mom was a shepherd mix, but we don't know who the daddy was. Shasta is very people oriented and is always looking for guidance. She's a people-pleaser and smaller than Frostie. Frostie is more dog oriented, and sensitive...she waits to see if she can trust you first. Both are just puppies, and not yet house trained. So we're looking for an adopter with time & patience to do house training, and enroll the pups in puppy classes. They're very smart and treat-motivated, so they'll be quick learners. ARWOB is holding an adoption event this Saturday at the PETCO in Clairemont from 10am to 12pm where an average of 20 dogs, ranging from shepherd mixes to maltese mixes, pups and adults, will be in attendance.

He has been looking for a home since December, so he’s had lots of time to make a good impression on everyone. Zuko loves to be with people and will calmly sit by your side after a nice, long walk. He would prefer to be the only dog in his new home and would do best in an adult-only home or with children older than 14. Zuko’s $25 adoption fee in April includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. Please note that all adult dog adoption fees are just $25 in April at EHS, so it’s a great time to adopt! The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

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.

His foster family admits he still needs some training with walking on a leash...but hey, he's just a puppy...he'll learn! He needs a family who will be able to spend time with him, and continue puppy training so that when he's a full-grown, 40-pound dog, he'll be well-adjusted and well-behaved. His grooming needs are few, which is great for the busy family. He is learning how to play fetch and will be a great Frisbee or agility dog someday.

Mario was rescued off the streets of Mexico in January by a couple of students in Ensenada. He was such a sweet dog, they wound up taking him in. After three months, they were unable to find his home, so they asked Animal Rescuers Without Borders for help. Now he lives in a San Diego condo with a loving foster family who say he's a couch potato. Mario is amazing, very outgoing and enjoys human companionship. Since he was only recently neutered, he does have an annoying habit of humping other dogs at the park, which will eventually go away. Fortunately, his marking issue was resolved by his foster parents taking him for multiple walks, and working hard to house train him. He is great around dogs, cats, children, and has no aggression what-so-ever. Additionally, he walks well on a leash, loves being in the car, and doesn't bark. Please call Animal Rescuers Without Borders to meet Mario and see if he's a good fit for your family.

She has amazing manners, does well on a leash, and knows basic commands. She's a pretty laid back girl with a playful, cuddly side.

Basking in the sun, and classical music take her to her zen place. She is about 3 years young and would be perfect dog for a family with children since she loves them so much.

Chique (chick-ee) is a 4.5 year old ex-racing Greyhound at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. She was rescued in August when they got a call from the Caliente Racetrack about a dog with a broken hock. A volunteer was quickly dispatched to the border to pick her up, and transport her to a veterinarian. Fortunately she was able to recover with the use of a splint and many weeks of rest. Chique's recovery was tedious and lengthy but she is now ready for adoption. She's a very affectionate, playful dog but would do best in a home without cats and small dogs. She would, however, enjoy living in a home with energetic, 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. The Greyhound Adoption Center hosts an Open House and tour of their facility every third Sunday of the month from 1-to-3 pm.

Edward is a 9-year-old Min-Pin for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society. He weighs 9-pounds and has special needs because he's blind and can't produce tears. He was found wandering behind Palomar College in San Marcos, which is scary even for a dog who can see! His eyesight doesn't seem to dampen his spirit or personality, as he's very sweet and loving, and just needs to find a caring, patient family with whom he can live out his golden years. Edward's $55 adoption fee includes his neuter, microchip, vaccinations and a free vet exam after adoption. Even if you're not ready to adopt, maybe you could call and ask about fostering Edward until a forever home comes along. For more information, call 760-888-2275 or visit EscondidoHumaneSociety.org. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, and they'll also be bringing dogs to the Cupids & Canines Dog Adoption Event this weekend!

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! If you'd like to learn more about adopting Ralphie, volunteering, fostering or donating. please call or visit the website at www.PEAC.org.

"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.

The remaining puppies and their mom are looking for a family. The puppies are now 8 months old and have been thoroughly vet checked and cleared for adoption. Ceelo is a distemper survivor and what a trooper he is He's full of love, great in his crate, loves car rides, good with other dogs, ok with cats and absolutely loves people.

Abby is a happy 7-month-old Tortie, with short hair. Like all cats from the National Cat Protection Society, she's spayed, microchipped, de-wormed, vaccinated, tested for feline diseases and treated for fleas while at the shelter. Just a few short months ago, she was a bundle of energy, bouncing off the walls in the adoption center, but she's mellowed out quite a bit. She's litter box trained and loves everyone. Like Abby, most cats at National Cat Protection Society are very good with other cats, as the facility doesn't keep most of there cats in kennels all day....they're allowed to run around and play with each other and the visitors who come to meet them. In fact, if you're looking for a cage-free place to volunteer, check out the shelter on Birch Street in Spring Valley. Meanwhile, please call to inquire about Abby, as we'd love to see her become a part of a loving family as soon as possible.

Buffy is a happy, friendly, 7 year old Pittie for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society. She's rarely seen without a huge smile on her face, which makes it impossible for those around her not to smile, as well. She's easy-going and likes everyone she meets. She loves to roll in the grass, and though she's 68-pounds, she believes she's a lap-dog. She is on a special diet to prevent her from getting dry, itchy skin, and the shelter would like her new family to keep her on that diet, because it seems to be doing wonders for her coat. Buffy is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, vet checked and behavior tested. Call or log onto EscondidoHumaneSociety.org for more information about adoption or fostering. The shelter is open from 10 AM to 5 PM, seven days a week.

Kenya is a 6-year-old Pit Bull mix available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society. She was recently surrendered to the shelter because her family was moving out of state and didn't take her with them. We're told Kenya loved to travel with her family and loved to go hiking and stay active. When she wasn't out exploring, she liked to lounge on her doggie bed next to the couch. Since she chases small critters, a home without cats or a small dog would be best. Kenya's adoption fee includes spay, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam.

Randy is a very social, sweet, 4-year-old boy who loves all people! He's positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, FIV, but he's very healthy and could make an excellent companion for another cat with FIV, a virus that affects a cat's immune system. As long as they're not exposed to an unhealthy environment, they can live perfectly long, normal lives. It's a cat-only virus and can't be passed to humans or other species. It's usually transmitted during a cat fight, so Randy should be an only cat or live with another friendly FIV+ cat. He should also remain indoors. He's vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and comes with a free vet visit after adoption. Friends of Cats is located on Olde Highway 80, east of Lake Jennings Park Road in El Cajon.

Update: Gracie still needs forever home!

George Burns and Gracie Allen are purebred German Shorthair Pointers who lost their home when their owner lost his. They've been together all of their 14 years and were loyal companions and hunting buddies to their former owner. They're fit, active, and love attention, belly rubs and walks. They know many commands, are well-behaved and walk well, with or without a leash. They still enjoy fetching a tennis ball and they are very smart; more than one bag of treats has gone missing from improbable places - they work together to acquire the treats they love and are interesting to watch as they plot to get into the treat shed at the rescue.

Gracie is incredibly affectionate with everyone she meets, giving everyone a little nudge to make sure she is noticed and gets some pets. George is a little more independent and enjoys hunting and exploring, coming back for some pets now and again. They share everything: food bowls, dog house, beds, and toys.They have been a pair for all but the first couple of months of their lives, and GSP Rescue is looking to adopt them as a pair. They get along with all other dogs, seem to be okay with cats, and enjoy children and adults of all ages. They are not demanding at all, except maybe for some love, and they'd be an easy addition to any family - a couple of soft beds and a walk each day is all that they ask.
