The San Diego Humane Society waives all adoption fees on Saturday as a part of the month-long Clear the Shelters campaign.
Those interested in adopting among the hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbits — even pigs and ducks — can visit any of San Diego Humane Society’s campuses in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m at no cost. To locate a specific animal, please check the organization’s website first. All pets available for adoption can be viewed at sdhumane.org/adopt<http://www.sdhumane.org/adopt>.
On Sunday, Aug. 28, San Diego Humane Society will continue with reduced adoption fees for the remainder of Clear the Shelters month. Dogs, cats, and kittens will be listed for $20 and a small pet for $5 at any of San Diego Humane Society’s campuses. San Diego Humane Society is open for walk-in adoptions Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at its campuses in Escondido, El Cajon, Oceanside and San Diego.
“Pets belong in homes where they can give and receive unconditional love,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of San Diego Humane Society. “It tugs at our heartstrings every time we see an animal go home with a new family. It’s the best feeling.”
The nonprofit organization provided the following reasons for public to encourage adoption:
* You’ll help create space in the shelter for other animals in need.
* You know you’re getting an animal who has been properly assessed and cared for.
* Your pet has been spayed/neutered and vaccinated.
* San Diego Humane Society offers an adoption guarantee, training advice, pet supplies and educational information to support pet families for the animal's life.
