SWEET SANDY IS READY FOR LOVE!

Sandy1

Sandy has come a long way since she came into our care! When she was first transferred to us from another shelter, her sudden bouts of fearful – almost frantic – behavior was a bit confusing since she was usually very social. After working with her and helping her build trust and confidence, we were able to determine some of what was so terrifying to her. The leash, in particular, and the process of being leashed (and any collar handling), was very scary for the one-year old Golden Retriever Mix. We have since been working with her on getting more used to such exchanges and making positive associations with them, as well as reinforcing calming behaviors.

Now, Sandy is known to be quite tolerant (not to mention wiggly and affectionate) with her people friends, although she can still sometimes be a bit fearful in new situations. But thanks the confidence building games we’ve been doing with her, she is quick to warm up and show her sweet nature.

Although she has made a lot of progress, Sandy will need ongoing training in the home, and we are hopeful that there is someone out there who will enjoy continuing her training and appreciate the special bond it can help form, as well as its many benefits and rewards. We know that with someone like that, Sandy can continue to thrive and become the wonderful companion she is meant to be! Is it you??

San Diego Humane Society has a group of special animals called “Hidden Gems.”  These little gems are wonderful companion animals that are not “on display” in the public adoption gallery because they do best in a calm and quiet environment outside of the public adoption area.  Meet Sandy, and other dogs and cats looking for a loving home!  http://www.sdhumane.org/how-you-can-help/adopt/hidden-gems/

If you are interested in meeting Sandy, come on over to our San Diego Campus or call us at 619.299.7012 to arrange an intro! Please have her Animal ID (190854) ready so that we can best help you.

Breed: Belgian Malinois (
ma-lən-ˈwä)

Freedom is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 3 year old, 46 pound, Belgian Malinois.        

When Freedom was a puppy her family put a collar on her neck. As she grew into an adult dog, the family did not replace the collar, leaving a mark around her throat. She’s been treated and her fur is growing back. Her difficult life didn’t change Freedom’s personality. She’s a sweet, sensitive, and affectionate girl who loves to snuggle and bury her face in your lap.

She’s a very smart dog with lots of energy. She will do well with an active family that will make sure she gets lots of exercise and socialization.

Freedom was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Freedom includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

Name: Cherry Jubilee
Age: 11 months
Weight: 7 pounds
Gender: Spayed Female
Breed: Domestic Medium Hair Tabby

 

Cherry Jubilee is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s an 11 month old, 7 pound, Domestic Medium Hair Tabby.

The care providers in the cattery say that she’s a sprightly, silly cat with a wonderful, cuddly side. She will want to run all around the house when she’s playing. But when she’s worn herself out, Cherry Jubilee will want to curl up on your lap and take a cat nap. She’s still very young. She needs a family that will make sure she gets plenty of fun and activity time. Remember that kittens are only kittens for a short time. After that you’ll have a cat for many years. Every cat or kitten needs a lifetime commitment from its family.

Cherry Jubilee was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program.

The $100 adoption fee for Cherry Jubilee includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

ShadowName: Shadow
Age: 9 years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler
ID #: 160053

Adoption Fee: $25

Shadow, a 9-year-old Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler, is looking for a family to love. When her previous owner was deployed, they did not have any other option but to relinquish her. The shelter was a hard transition for her, so we set her up in a foster home to give her extra love and attention until her new family found her.

Shadow’s foster family says she is as sweet as can be. She is still an active girl who is happy either running around or curling up on the couch. She quickly adjusts to her family’s activity level and will be as mellow or as energetic as you’d like. Her foster family also says that she bonded very quickly and loves following her family members around the home.

Her adoption fee includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, 30 days of complimentary medical insurance from Trupanion Insurance, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, and a license if residing in Oceanside, Vista, Escondido, San Marcos or Poway!

Shadow is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus at 2905 San Luis Rey Road. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (760) 757-4357.
