IF you spend any time with the ridiculously sweet animals at the County’s animal shelters, you might just be a “Fool Fur Love” and give one or even two a caring home. Perhaps, you might even be swooning over one of our campaign “poster” models like Olaf, a year-old blond German Shepherd, Ricky Bobby, a pot-bellied pig or Mustachio, a year-old tuxedo cat.
Starting on April Fool’s Day, the County of San Diego Animal Services is offering a Fool Fur Love $20 adoption special for any adult animal. The shelters have so many wonderful dogs, cats, pigs and more — you’d be silly not to check for your next loveable friend.
Check out some of the available pets on the Animal Services website (https://www.sddac.com/content/sdc/das/adopt.html).
The Fool Fur Love pet adoption special runs from Saturday, April 1 through Sunday, April 9. Fees include spaying or neutering, a microchip, a rabies shot, updated vaccinations and a one-year dog license for those in the service area. The $20 adoption special is a great break from the normal adoption fee of $75 for a dog and $65 for a cat.
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.
Fill out an application online to print or pick one up at the shelter. Applications can also be emailed but it is quicker to go in person.
If you cannot adopt, consider fostering animals or volunteering for the shelter. For more information, call (619) 767-2675 or visit the Animal Services main website at https://www.sddac.com.
