SD Humane Society Waives Dog Adoption Fees This Weekend
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The San Diego Humane Society announced Thursday that it is waiving adoption fees for all adult dogs over the weekend.
According to Humane Society officials, a large number of dogs are available for adoption at the organization’s campuses in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego.
“We have so many great dogs waiting to give unconditional love to a new family,” said Jessica Des Lauriers, chief operating officer of the San Diego Humane Society. “That’s why we’re waiving adoption fees from Friday to Sunday in the hope that people will open their hearts and homes, so we can make room for more animals that need our help in this moment.” According to the San Diego Humane Society, the benefits of adoption include:
— obtain an animal that has undergone a behavioral and medical evaluation;
– A Humane Society Adoption Guarantee, training tips, pet supplies and educational information to support pet families throughout the life of the animal;
— a helpline with experts to ask questions about any behavioral or training issues; and
— create space in the shelter for other animals in need.
The San Diego Humane Society is open for walk-in adoptions from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, at its campuses in Escondido, El Cajon, Oceanside, and San Diego.
