The San Diego Humane Society extended reduced adoption fees ahead of the holiday weekend to help find pets home, and create space for incoming animals this summer. 

The promotion is sponsored by Petfinder Foundation to allow future pet parents to pay $20 for adult dogs and cats and $5 for small pets. The promotion was extended from its’ original June 24-26 date. 

“Adopting a pet is a life-changing and enriching experience,” said San Diego Humane Society Chief Operating Officer Jessica Des Lauriers. “Adopting a pet from a shelter not only saves an animal’s life but is also good for our own well-being. Research shows that owning a pet has many positive psychological and physical health benefits.”

According to the organization, all animals are assessed behaviorally and medically. The organization offers an adoption guarantee, training advice, pet supplies, and educational information to support pet families for the lifespan of the animal. 

“You can contact our Behavior Helpline to get expert guidance about any behavior or training concerns,” the organization wrote in a press release. “By opening your home to adopt an animal, you’ll help create space in the shelter for other animals in need!” 

San Diego Humane Society is open for walk-in adoptions Tuesday – Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at its campuses in Escondido, El Cajon, Oceanside, and San Diego. To view animals currently available for adoption, visit
