Adoption fees are being waived for all animals, courtesy of generous donors’ gift

December 13, 2017 (San Diego) - Hundreds of homeless animals are at San Diego Humane Society in need of homes, so pet adoption fees are being waived for all animals from Dec. 15 through 24 at all campuses and satellite adoption centers. For the 10 days before Christmas, all animal adoptions are sponsored by Sharon Blanchet of ABC Family Law and Phil and Pam Reed, Reed Team at Willis Allen Real Estate in La Jolla.

There is no shortage of animals needing homes and gifting a pet can actually be a mutually beneficial opportunity this holiday season. The best way is to involve the pet family and pet parent-to-be in the selection. Every animal adopted from San Diego Humane Society is spayed/neutered, current on all vaccinations, microchipped and is sent home with a certificate for a free veterinary exam, 30 days of worry-free pet insurance from Trupanion and his/her first bag of food from Purina.

Animals that are awaiting adoption can be found on the organization’s website: sdhumane.org/how-you-can-help/adopt/available-pets

San Diego Humane Society adoption hours are 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., seven days a week, at the following campus locations:

San Diego Campus

5500 Gaines St.

Escondido Campus

3450 E. Valley Parkway

Oceanside Campus

(for dogs)

2905 San Luis Rey Road

(for cats and small animals)
