MUTT’S HAPPENING: CLEAR THE SHELTERS DAY

 

image003

Want to hear an interesting statistic? The ASPCA has recorded that about 7.6 million animals end up in animal shelters nationwide EVERY YEAR. All of these animals are looking for a loving family to take care of them and make them happy. The San Diego Humane Society, along with over 400 shelters in the US and Puerto Rico, are participating in Saturday’s Clear the Shelters Day, a day where specific shelters will discount adoption fees in order to “clear the shelters.” The one-day-only event was a success last year, with over 19,000 animals being adopted into their forever homes. We hope that this years’ event reaches over 20,000 adopted animals! We encourage any people looking for a new furry family member to visit your local shelter this Saturday, July 23rd, to help clear the shelters. To see a list of San Diego County animal shelters that are participating in this event, click here or tune into NBC7 and Telemundo to learn more.

MUTT’S HAPPENING: San Diego Humane Society Donation Drive!

SDHS

At Muttropolis, we’re all about making sure all pets are healthy and happy, not just our own. With this in mind, we’ve decided to hold a special holiday donation drive in our Solana Beach and La Jolla stores benefiting the San Diego Humane Society.

All December long, you can bring your gently used or new beds and collars to either the Solana Beach or La Jolla store and not only make a sheltered animal happy, but receive 20% off your purchase that day! How cool is that? The San Diego Humane Society has also requested beef flavored human baby food.

This donation drive will be going on from now until December 31st. If you have any questions regarding donations, please contact the Solana Beach and La Jolla stores at 858.755.3647 and 858.459.9663, respectively.

Meet Simon, We Admire Him!

We’re very pleased to be an
“Animal Admirer” for the San Diego Humane Society. Simon is a sweet, senior beagle mix pup with an inquisitive nature
and an adorable personality! Simon is the second pup that we’ve admired so far
and we plan to continue to admire many more pets to come.

Simon(1)If we were to describe Simon
in three words, it would be mellow, intelligent and chatty! He has plenty of
energy for his age, just over 14 years, so that shouldn’t be a discouraging
factor. In fact, there are many benefits to adopting a senior pet. Simon has
already developed his personality and he isn’t in need of a whole bunch of
training, especially since he’s very easy going. He’s very social with people
and other pets, cats included, but can also hold his own when he has to spend
some time alone. We feel that Simon would do best in a home that compliments
his laid back ways, so if there are children in the family, we recommend they
are 8 years of age or older.

Where can you find this adorable
Simon? He’s currently located at the San Diego Humane Society in Oceanside at 5500 Gaines Street.
If you’re interested in
adopting Simon, or may know someone else who is, it would only cost a small
adoption fee of $25.00. Simon’s current
vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free
veterinary exam, a gift from Hill’s Science Diet, and a license if residing in Oceanside or Vista are
all included with the adoption!

For more information visit Simon’s profile on the San
Diego Humane Society’s website. Simon’s animal ID number is 120023, which
you’ll want to reference when you go to visit him. Help us find Simon a
forever home!
