The San Diego County Department of Animal Services is playing matchmaker this week with its Sweetheart Special which reduces the adoption fees to $14 for all animals.
The Sweetheart Special begins on Valentine's Day and through Feb.19, when all animals are just $14 to adopt. The Department of Animal Services said there is someone for everyone.
“For those of you who like to be the center of someone’s universe and don’t mind bad breath, try a dog. Maybe if you prefer to earn your love, try a cat. If you like the intellectual type, try a pig — they’re smarter than dogs You like slow walks on aquarium beaches, how about a red-eared slider turtle? Recently gone vegetarian? Share a nibble on a carrot with one of our bunnies,” the county Department of Animal Services wrote in a press release.
All animals will be spayed or neutered, have vaccinations, a microchip, and a one-year license for dogs in the service area. Those interested in adopting may browse the Adoptions page.
The Animal Services staff recommends prospective adopters pick out a second and third choice too, just in case their first choice is already chosen by another person.
Walk-in hours are from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at both the South Shelter, 5821 Sweetwater Road in Bonita, or the North Shelter, 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad.
