Lobo is a 7-year-old male Siberian Husky Mix. He arrived at the shelter on March 5, 2022, due to a change in his previous owner's circumstances. Lobo is an energetic and active dog, best suited for an active lifestyle, such as running or hiking. He is not suitable for a household with cats.

The organization has at least 359 dogs, 17 puppies, 174 cats, 248 kittens, and many, many more species waiting for a second chance at love with a new family. The one-day adoption special is part of NBC Universal and Telemundo’s Clear the Shelters Month.

People who have space in their heart and home for a new family member 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. on Saturday to adopt a pet at no cost. If they have a specific animal in mind, it is recommended to check the organization’s website first at sdhumane.org/adopt to help determine which campus is best to visit.

This has been an especially tough year for San Diego Humane Society. On July 7, the organization set a record with 2,584 animals in care. As of today, there are 2,325 animals in care. What’s unusual about 2023 is the shelter was already over capacity at the beginning of the year. “Typically, summer is our busy time, but we were already breaking records in March with dogs in care,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of San Diego Humane Society. “But even though the numbers are staggering, each animal here is an individual who deserves love and a home to call their own.”
