Adopt a Pet–Save a Life!

According to statistics gathered by Cornell University Department of Veterinary Science, an estimated 12 million healthy cats, dogs and other small animals are euthanized in shelters every year. About 75% of cats and kittens and over 56% of dogs and puppies are euthanized. If you'd like to add a new pet to your family, please consider saving a life instead of buying a pet. Check out the following local shelters and rescue organizations in the northern San Diego area to learn more and find your new best friend. He or she is waiting for you!

Also, please stop the cycle of unwanted pets. Spay or neuter your animals. 1 female cat and her offspring can birth 120,000 cats in 7 years. 1 female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in 6 years! Here is a link to a low-cost spay/neuter organization in La Jolla that we recommend:
