SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The San Diego Humane Society has turned its adoption process into a socially distant experience, allowing future pet owners adhering to the California stay-at-home order to adopt a new furry friend from afar.
An adoption counselor will call the potential adopter to conduct a telephone consultation to discuss available animals and help the adopter choose the animal that best fits their lifestyle. Once the animal is adopted, the adopter can drive to campus and staff will help load the animal safely into the adopter’s car.
The Humane Society campuses in Escondido, Oceanside, and San Diego are open by appointment only daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Interested adopters should call the company at 619-299-7012 to make an appointment.
“The COVID-19 pandemic presents significant challenges for the rescue work of the San Diego Humane Society, but it is imperative that we continue to find homes for the animals we care for,” said the president and chief of staff. SDHS leadership Dr Gary Weitzman. “The flow of animals to shelters will not stop because of this virus, so we are delighted that we can continue to provide adoption services in this way. “
The San Diego Humane Society encourages any member of the community who is able to open their home and heart to a shelter animal in need. The organization currently has over 100 pets available for adoption.
