[ARCHIVED] San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

NF Pets of the week

Toad 48293613Dog of the Week: Toad (48293613)

Toad is such a treasure! This 65-pound boy enjoys all the pets, napping, and more napping. He has met other dogs at the shelter and has even lived with another dog his size, so he would enjoy another dog friend in his new home! He is crate-trained, very gentle, and is eager to learn tons of new tricks. Toad is six years old, a big fan of squeaky toys, and can't wait to give his new hooman SO much love. If you don't mind having a dog that wants to be up in your business all the time, then Toad is the perfect choice for you! 

Sam 48702868Cat of the Week: Sam (48702868)  

Don't let the photos of Sam fool you; he's a very loving 6-pound boy! He needs someone who will show him tenderness and love. At eight months old, Sam can't wait to live in a home where he has a nice window perch where he can watch the birds outside. He also wouldn't mind having a Squeeze Up every once in a while, (*cough, cough* or all the time because he LOVES them)! He enjoys being held and absolutely loves treats of any kind! Sam will give you so many cuddles as long as you give him time to get acclimated to his new furever home! 

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. To meet our pets, please visit us in person at the shelter, open from noon – 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from noon – 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
