“Summer is really a great time to bring a new pet home. Kids are off from school and parents have more time, which is the ideal scenario for bonding with a new pet,” said Escondido Humane Society Executive Director Sally Costello. “If you have been considering adding a pet to your family, now is the perfect time to visit the Escondido Humane Society.”
Regular adoption fees are $55 for puppies and kittens up to 6 months old; $42.50 for adult dogs and cats (6 months to 7 years); $27.50 for senior dogs and cats (animals over 7 years old); $22.50 for rabbits.
People can visit the Escondido Humane Society website, www.escondidohumanesociety.org, to view animals available for adoption or meet them in person at the shelter, 3450 E. Valley Parkway.
