Billie As featured on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO! 




Name:
Billie
Breed: Blue-Fronted Amazon Parrot
Age: 26 years old
Sex: Female
Organization: Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC.org)
Email: membership@peac.org
Phone: (619) 287-8200

Billie is a DNA-sexed female Blue-fronted Amazon. She's in her late twenties and lived with the same family for over 26 years. Her original owner passed some years ago, and the son who cared for her now travels extensively due to work commitments. Billie was on a seed-based diet; however, she now eats pellets and an excellent variety of vegetables. With the addition of foraging toys and a roomier cage, her new feather growth looks beautiful with no evidence of over-preening. Billie uses a variety of words and phrases, whistles, and laughter. She steps up well for both genders in her foster home. She is very engaging; an all-around clown; and clearly enjoys interaction from the people in her life, allowing trusted flock members to hold her like a football and turn her upside down.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon
Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375

Daphne is a happy, loving and intelligent dog available for adoption from the El Cajon Animal Shelter, and we'd love to find her a loving family for Christmas. She's a wonderful mix of Vizsla and Weimaraner, two very popular breeds, and though she's missing an eye, she doesn't seem to notice, and it certainly doesn't distract from her looks. She's cheerful, affectionate, good with kids, and gets along well with other dogs. She's already housebroken and knows her basic commands. It's important that she get sufficient exercise each day, in the form of a walk or visit to the off-leash dog park, as she is an active dog. She'll make a great family pet, and again, our hope is that she won't have to spend the holidays in the shelter. Please call or visit the El Cajon Animal Shelter, Tuesday through Saturday at 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon. Daphne is in kennel #23, and she's already spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

They are then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home. The Greyhound Adoption Center hosts a monthly Open House every third Sunday from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to visit with GAC volunteers and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.

Bailey is a perfect little lady. She LOVES everyone, she's great with kids, other dogs but would be best in a home without cats. She's house trained, good on the leash, and knows some basic commands. She was clearly once someone's girl, but they tragically never came to claim her from the shelter. Even if you're not able to adopt Bailey at this time, perhaps you could offer her a warm and loving home for the holidays as a temporary foster family. Call or go to LabradorsAndFriends.org. Also, this Sunday is their annual Pictures with Santa event at SouthBark Dog Wash at 2037 30th Street. For just $10 you can get a 4x6 print of your dog with Santa.

Timber is a 7 month old Rottweiler pup who came from a backyard breeder who neglected the dog after she was born with a deformity. Her front foot was facing backwards. Animal Control seized her when they went out to the house, and then she was turned over to Rottweiler Rescue. Timber's leg was amputated as it had atrophied from the shoulder down. After the surgery, Timber began to cry, which led them to the discovery that her "good" leg was fractured.. So, this poor pup ended up staying at the hospital for two weeks as she had a missing leg on one side and a fracture in the other leg which prevented her from being able to walk. She is now able to play with the other dogs, and she adores cats! She just needs a family that will give her love and not over-feed her, because she needs to maintain an ideal weight for mobility purposes. Contact Rottie Rescue at 619-212-6028!

She's the perfect greeter, loves to ride in the car, has great indoor house manners and gets along well with dogs of all sizes. Please call or go to GreatPyrRescue.org to fill out an adoption application, or to find out about fostering one of these gentle giants. #HomeForTheHoliday

Muñeca was a stray who was turned into a shelter. After two months, it became obvious that her owners were not going to come get her so ARWOB rescued her. She's a happy loving terrier with low to medium energy, she's great with children and dogs and will tolerate cats who leave her alone. She'd be an excellent pup for a family who has never had a dog before due to her easy-going personality. Muñeca is good in the car, and she's not a barker. Animal Rescuers Without Borders is very short on foster families, so even if you're not ready to adopt, please consider fostering Muñeca if only temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Please call or contact ARWOB.org to discuss foster, adoption or foster-to-adopt opportunities. They really, really need help!

Name: Bogie Animal ID #: 154376
Age: 1 years
Breed: Pit bull mix
Sex: Neutered male
Color: Blue brindle
Weight: 47 pounds
Organization: San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus, 3450 E. Valley Parkway
Phone: 760-888-2275 (BARK)



Bogie is a 1-year-old neutered male pit bull mix available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus. Bogie is still just a youngster, so he is full of enthusiasm for life! He loves to play ball and is an expert fetcher, and he’s been working on giving up the ball on command. He also enjoys playing with the water hose and splashing around in the mud. He is very affectionate, friendly and engaging with people and will settle in after play time. He knows how to sit on command and is working on walking with a loose leash, and we believe he is already potty trained. With the right fit, Bogie would fit in fine with a family with children.

The San Diego Humane Society is celebrating Veterans Day with an Operation Adopt special today through Sunday. During the promotion, all adult cats and dogs, like Bogie, can report to duty as your new best friend for just $11! That fee still includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. The San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus, located at 3450 E. Valley Parkway, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Call (760) 888-2275 or log on to www.sdhumane.org for information.

Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375


Timmy is available for adoption at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, where he loves to chase balls in the play yard. By the way, the more volunteers there are, the better the chances of the dogs getting out to play, so I highly recommend volunteering there, even if you're not ready to adopt a dog. They also need people to socialize with the cats. Anyway, Timmy, this little 1-year-old, Chihuahua, is very affectionate and loaded with personality. He has a joy for life, and the staff just loves him! He gets along well with other dogs, knows some basic commands and seems like he's pretty much housetrained. The shelter is located at 1275 North Marshall Street in El Cajon, and Timmy will be waiting for you in Kennel #57, Tuesday through Saturday. He's already neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped, and his adoption fee is just $80.

Chihuahua Rescue was called in to pick up Cookie and four newborn puppies when the previous owner was "detained". She had two painfully neglected cherry eyes and was malnourished. In addition to having surgery to fix her eyes, Cookie is now spayed, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and healthy. Her four puppies are also ready for new homes and are all well-socialized. Cookie is 3 years old, 10-pounds, playful, housetrained and loves to sleep under the covers. She truly enjoys being with people as much as possible. In an attempt to get as many of their adoptable Chihuahuas into homes for the holidays, adoption fees have been greatly reduced for the next four weeks, so now is the time to contact Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego. You can fill out an application online at RescueAChihuahua.com or call 858-277-3557.

Belle is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She's a lab mixed with some breed that causes her coat to reflect black, brown, red, gold, chestnut and orange colors when you look closely. Possibly some sort of mastiff? Born with a deformity in her front leg, she was deemed "unadoptable" and headed straight to death row at the Lancaster Shelter. She caught the eye of a Lab & Friends volunteer who was there that day, she was rescued and temperament tested....she scored an A+ on her temp test, by the way! Since being with Labradors & Friends, she has been fitted with a prosthetic leg, which she is refusing to use so far, but with some work and rehab, the goal is to get her to be comfortable walking on it. It would be wonderful to find a family dedicated to her rehab. Belle is an active, happy, easy-going, lovable dog. She's totally housetrained, has wonderful manners, well-socialized and enjoys riding in the car. She's great with other dogs, and kids!

Liam is a 4-year-old Shih Tzu mix for adoption from Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue. He weighs just 13 pounds, and his before and after pics are incredible. He was an unrecognizable, giant ball of matted hair when he was turned into the shelter, so shaving him down was the least painful way to start over and get his long hair under control. He'll be a beauty when his fur grows out. In the meantime, his disposition and winning personality make up for the funky new haircut. Liam gets along with other dogs, is housetrained, well-behaved, respectful and happy. He's as sweet as they come, and will be a great addition to almost any family. Call Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue, or go to HollysGarden.com. Even if you're not ready to adopt, find out how you can become a temporary foster for a dog in need.

She arrived at the El Cajon Animal Shelter with another little dog, but he already got adopted, leaving her all alone. She'd be an ideal dog for a family who has gentle children...maybe kids who are a little older so that she can't be injured. She does know some of her commands, like how to "sit pretty", and she's housetrained, too. The shelter has a play yard where you can get to know Crystal, and we're sure you'll agree that she's a perfectly behaved, good-natured and adorable girl.

This special needs kitty has striking two-toned eyes and a sweet, friendly personality. Frankie is very cuddly and affectionate and will make an excellent companion. He is FIV+, which can NOT affect people, and isn't contagious in normal feline interactions, but he must stay indoors at all times, and should ideally be an only cat or a companion for another FIV+ kitty. Just because his immune system is a little compromised, doesn't mean he won't live a long, healthy life. He can easily live 15-plus years if he's well cared for. Come meet Frankie at the SD Humane Society's Escondido Campus at 3450 E. Valley Parkway from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. any day of the week from 10-to-5. 760-888-2278 or SDHumane.org

Oakley is a Queensland Heeler puppy at just 5 months old. She weighs 20 pounds now, and we expect she'll reach about 40-45 pounds full-grown. Oakley will be at the Aussie Rescue booth. She was relinquished by her owner because he didn't have time for her or her brother anymore. She's doing great with her housetraining lessons and is a very playful, happy puppy, but because she didn't get out much in public before, she's a little fearful of new situations and will need someone to continue to socialize her. But she's made great progress in the short time she's been in her foster home. Because of her breed, she's very smart and learns quickly. She's good with kids and will make a great addition to any home. Call now to get pre-qualified to adopt her at this weekend's event. You don't have to wait until Saturday!

Brandy is a 3-year-old female Min Pin mix. Holly's Garden Rescue pulled her out of a shelter after one of their volunteers noticed that there was an adorable little dog with the most beautiful eyes hiding under her shelter bed. She had been there for 6-months. When they pulled Brandy from the shelter, she came out of her kennel, wagging her tail and giving cautious kisses....and since that day, she has been one of the most appreciative little girls they have ever rescued. No wonder she was a shelter staff favorite from he day she arrived, but no potential adopters ever saw past her insecurities in the shelter. She's called Ballerina Brandy because she dances for treats, when you come home, or any time she's happy. She loves toys, car rides and walking on a leash. She loves being held like a baby, too. She's great with children and other dogs. We'll never know about her past, but we're certain her future is bright! Call Holly's Garden or visit www.HollysGarden.com .

They're 8 and 6-years-old, respectively, and can be separated and adopted into different homes, if necessary. Gladys is super sweet and well behaved. She loves to snuggle and position herself for a good belly-rub and especially loves the company of male dogs. Meanwhile, Gladiola is very fun-loving and loves to play fetch and go for a run. They both sleep nicely on their beds at night, they know how to use a doggie door, and love to ride in the car. They are already well-socialized, housetrained, family-friendly dogs. Meet Gladys and Gladiola at a Labradors & More weekend adoption event, or by appointment.

Molly came into the El Cajon Animal Shelter as a stray, with a littler of newborn kittens. Of course, the babies have all been adopted, but Molly still waits for someone to love. She's just 3-years-old, and very playful and friendly. She's perfectly litter-box-trained, as well. Unfortunately, adoption rates for black animals are very low. Part of that is because it's quite hard to market them, as they don't show up well in print or television adopt-a-pet segments, because it's hard to capture they're beautiful faces on camera. Hopefully we'll get some good lighting at Channel 6 tomorrow, and someone will see her and fall in love. Her adoption fee is only $80, and she's now spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Molly is waiting in cage 133 at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon, open Tuesday through Saturday.

Frances is a Moluccan Cockatoo who became part of the PEAC foster flock in 2012 when his previous owners surrendered him saying he had a screaming problem. When the foster first took him in, Frances would not allow anyone to handle him, and he had a lot of phobic behaviors, probably because he had been completely cage-bound and isolated in a back room in his previous home. Frances has improved greatly, and has learned to play with and destroy many types of toys, but he's still working on "stepping up", and prefers to be in the company of other parrots, as he's more at ease in a flock environment. He still screams in the morning and at night, and will require someone who has a great deal of Cockatoo experience, but in the right environment, he's going to make someone a wonderful companion. Contact PEAC at the number above.

She's wonderful off-leash, listens well to voice-commands, and is completely housebroken. Grace’s adopted family loves her very much, but tearfully put her up for adoption again because their older dog just never accepted Grace into the home- even after trying many different ways to make it work. Grace would be better in a one-dog family where she doesn't need to share her home.

She was brought in with her brother Stitch who is a white Tabby, and also available for adoption. It would be ideal if they were both adopted together, but not mandatory. Lilo is litter box trained, tested for feline leukemia, vaccinated, dewormed, de-fleaed, and microchipped. She loves to climb on people and playing is her favorite pastime. The National Cat Protection Society is a cage-free, no-kill facility located on Birch Street in Spring Valley, open Tuesday through Saturday, Noon to 4:30. Their website is NatCat.org, plus they have a Facebook and Twitter account!.

Breed: Domestic Short Hair Tabby
Age: 8 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: National Cat Protection Society, 9031 Birch St, in Spring Valley
Phone: (619) 469-8771

Angel is a happy, plump 8-year-old, spayed, short haired tabby who absolutely loves people. She was found outside the gates of the National Cat Protection Society, in the bushes, where she was meowing for help. Even though she is declawed, she was abandoned at night to fend for herself. She was lucky to have been unharmed and she was very thankful for being rescued. Angel loves having her back scratched and does a funny licking motion when being scratched. She's been placed on a diet right because she loves to over eat... and she can stand to lose a little, just to get her back to being healthy again. Angel loves to talk and loves to be picked up and carried around. She tolerates other animals, but prefers to be the only animal in the house getting the attention. She's litter box trained, fully vaccinated, FeLV tested, treated for fleas, dewormed, and microchipped. Contact the National Cat Protection Society, located in Spring Valley at 9031 Birch Street, open Tuesday through Saturday, Noon to 4:30.

Remy is all boy, and an absolute doll. Why his previous owner surrendered him to a high-kill animal shelter is a complete mystery. He just loves attention, purrs up a storm, climbs into any available lap, and has perfect litter-box manners. Of course, he's neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Remy has gained 3-pounds since he was rescued from the shelter. He loves his food...wet or dry, it's all good! He uses a scratching post nicely and is very sweet and gentle when being held. His foster mom says he likes to roll over to have his belly rubbed...just like a puppy. He loves to run and play with his toys and he gets along well with other cats and the resident dog in his foster home. How great is it that a foster family has already experienced all there is to know about Remy, so that there will be no surprises for the new adopters! Contact Southern California Siamese Rescue today to find out how you can adopt Remy, or become a foster home for a kitty in need!

Breed:
Labrador retriever mix

Located at: San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus, 3450 E. Valley Parkway
Phone:

Samson is a 7-year-old, 98-pound, neutered male Labrador retriever mix available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus. Samson is your ultimate ball dog. He loves to chase the ball, and his special trick is holding two tennis balls in his mouth at once. He’s a happy, friendly guy, and when he isn’t busy playing ball he’s happy to lounge at your feet or share his love and affection. Samson can be a little possessive of his toys – he lays on them so he can keep them all to himself – so he will do best as the only dog in his new home and would prefer older children or adults only. Samson’s $25 adoption fee includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. The Humane Society's Escondido Campus is located at 3450 E. Valley Parkway and they're open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Call (760) 888-2275 or log on to EscondidoHumaneSociety.org for information.

Raleigh was rescued at just 4 months of age, and adopted to a woman who just returned him as she's moving to New York City, into a tiny apartment. It may be for the best, as she worked 8-to-9 hours a day, and Raleigh was cooped up inside a crate all that time, with only weekend outings to the dog park, beaches and hikes. Since he's an Aussie mix, a dog like this really needs more activity and socialization. The good news is he's spectacularly housetrained and great in the car. He's good off-leash with other dogs, but not okay with cats. Because he spent most his time alone or with a single female, he's still a little unsure when he meets men, especially when they're wearing baseball hats....but this is a fear that can be overcome with proper socialization. He's a lover, and an ideal adopter would be willing to take him to obedience or agility classes. Call or text Animal Rescuers Without Borders today, or go ARWOB.org

I had to learn about the joys of indoor living when I first joined the rescue because they're pretty sure I lived an outside life as a breeding dog. I have learned that the couch is absolutely the best form of heaven! I currently live with a 1.5 year old pittie mix who thinks I'm his momma. I can be selective about my canine friends but if I love them then we are BFFs. I don't live with any kids, but my foster parent thinks I would be wonderful with little ones of all ages. I'm very calm around people, I don't jump, and I take food very slowly and gently. People tell me that I'm more adoptable if I know things. So far I've learned my name, sit, lay down, roll over, and go to bed. I'm crate trained and 100% potty trained! Call or visit www.pbrsd.org to schedule a time when we can meet.

Paige is a 14-year-old spayed female pit bull/sharpei mix available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society. Don't let Paige's senior status fool you! She is very active and loves to go for walks, and she's an expert snuggler. Paige is deaf, but she doesn't let her special needs slow her down one bit. She seems to get excited whenever she sees kids so she probably would do well with them, and she would prefer not to share her attention with other dogs. She's been at the shelter since August, so please share this special girl to help her find a home soon! Paige’s $25 adoption fee in June includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. Please note that all adult dog and cat adoption fees are just $25 in June, so today is the last day to take advantage of the low adoption fees!

Tootsie came to Parrot Education and Adoption Center In April of this year. Before that, she'd been with the same family for her entire life...13 years...but when they moved into an RV, Tootsie couldn't adjust to the cramped living quarters and tiny cage, and she began to pull her chest and leg feathers out due to stress. She's now in a foster home where she has grown back a large amount of down, and they hope she'll soon regrow some of her feathers, as well. She's now able to sleep and reside in a very large cage which is much more appropriate in size for a bird like her. She's loving and loves to cuddle and be around her people. She does tend to call out when she gets lonely, and they're working on redirecting this behavior to a more constructive one, such as playing with toys and other fun ways for her to occupy her mind when she's alone. Tootsie knows a few words such as hello and I love you, but is still too shy to speak in front of people but will chatter on and on when she's alone or in the company of other parrots. Tootsie is a fast learner and just wants to be in a forever home that will love her and care for her the way she deserves to be.

A family moved out of town, and left their unspayed cat behind to fend for herself. After having several litters of kittens, that sweet cat and her latest litter were rescued by a neighbor. So, Leon and his two sisters grew up in foster care, and the entire family is now ready for adoption. Leon is an affectionate boy. His purr can be heard from across a room, and since he's such a happy kitten, he fires it up at a moment’s notice. He just loves to be held and cuddled, or to sprawl out next to you on the couch. Leon likes toys he can pick up and play or wrestle with. He's a busy kitten with a play-sleep-play-sleep routine. Meet Leon at the Rescue House Cat & Kitten Adoption Fair this Saturday & Sunday, the 17th and 18th, from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Carmel Mountain PETCO on Rancho Carmel Drive.

Ruby is a loving, friendly, 4-year-old Pittie with a beautiful red coat. She loves going on walks and chasing after her toys, and of course, she'll never turn down a good belly rub. Because of her size, she needs a home with adults, or older kids, and she also needs to be an only-dog. She'd enjoy running and playing in a yard during the day, and hanging out inside at night on a soft, snuggly dog bed. She's 100% housetrained and knows some basic commands. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, and they have a nice play yard where you can interact with Ruby to make sure she's your perfect match. The shelter is located at 1275 North Marshall Street, in El Cajon, and Ruby is waiting to meet you in Kennel #3. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption.

Sweet Isaac was caught by rescuers who had set traps to catch and neuter feral cats. It became obvious that Isaac was very friendly, and he was taken to a Rescue House vet. He quickly became the staff favorite and was dubbed “Mr. Personality” because he’s affectionate, outgoing and follows people like a dog. He’ll talk to you, snuggle, kiss…and steal food off your plate. His charming nature is good with everyone and everything, including other cats and dogs. One thing to consider, however, is that Isaac tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which is a cat-only virus. It can’t be passed to humans or other species, but because it can be passed to another cat through a serious bite, he may be best as an only cat, or in a home with other FIV cats. Isaac is not a fighter, but there’s always a chance another cat might attack him, so he should always be an indoor kitty. I don’t think it’s that big a deal for most people because not everyone wants 50 cats…but Isaac has been without a home for a very long time. We hope you’ll consider making him part of your family. Call the Rescue House today for more information.

More info about FIV: FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a cat-only virus and can NOT be passed to humans or other species. For Isaac, he most likely fought with a hostile FIV+ cat while he was doing his best, fending for himself. FIV is NOT easily passed between cats that live together as transmission occurs through a serious, penetrating bite wound (or blood transfusion); not a frequent occurrence among domestic cats. An interesting fact is that any cat that has ever been vaccinated for FIV will then show a positive test result.

FIV is a type of "slow virus" that may affect the cats' immune system over a period of years, but as long as FIV+ cats are not exposed to diseases that their immune system cannot handle well, they can live long normal lives. Since their immune system can be weakened, they should visit a vet at the first sign of illness and should be fed a high-quality diet. A good article about FIV from The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary can be found at www.bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Immunodeficiency-Virus-FIV. FIV+ cats can live quite long, happy and normal lives, often with no symptoms at all.

The perfect Easter bunny, .a chocolate bunny, which everyone loves and will most likely be devoured by the end of the holiday. A stuffed bunny, which is the ideal children's gift, as you can put it in the toy chest and forget about it when your child tires of it, and a battery operated chick, which is adorable and will last until the battery dies. What ISN'T a great Easter gift is a BUNNY! They're living, breathing little creatures, who need love, attention and constant care for the next 8 to 10 years. You should only adopt a bunny if you have done your research and are sure about making a long-term commitment. If your children want to pet bunnies, there are shelters full of them, or consider fostering one temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Liz is a super sweet "HOE-TOE" bunny who was being transported from San Jose to Vegas, when her adopter changed her mind. So Liz wound up here in San Diego without a home. She's a nice girl who is a bit shy but warms up with a little attention. She'll be great for a home with adults and children over 7 years old.

Abigail was rescued as a stray, searching for food, malnourished, and friendly as could be. She was placed in a foster home where she awaits adoption into a family who will love and keep her safe. Abigail is a young adult cat who must have belonged to someone at some time because she bonds quickly and loves to cuddle. She's so sweet and just wants to be held or hugged all the time. She's also content laying next to you on your chair or computer desk while you work. She gives kisses and sometimes acts more like a dog. She does well around dogs and cats and is very easy-going when she's not chasing toys around the house. For the most part she likes to sleep, eat and be loved! Abigail is a food hound, so she'll need to have a family who will monitor her feeding or she'll eat everything in sight. Call Animal Rescuers Without Borders at 619-977-3593.

Ralphie has been a part of the Parrot Education & Adoption Center for two years. He was part of a wild flock near L.A. until he was hit by a car, breaking his leg and bursting his air sacs. He was about to be euthanized at a shelter when a volunteer called PEAC and made arrangements to drive him to San Diego where he was immediately seen by a vet for emergency surgery. He's been in his foster home ever since. At first, he was terrified of humans and would hiss and growl, and needed to be fed with a turkey baster. With patience, time and love, he's now part of a human and parrot flock. He has an enthusiastic wolf whistle and says "Hello" clearly and sweetly, and is beginning to mumble along to the song "Old McDonald Had A Farm". What a story!

"The Bolt" was found wondering in a neighborhood in San Diego and nobody ever claimed him. 90% of his diet is grasses and weeds. He thrives in a backyard that has Bermuda grass hay with some dandelions and other native weeds. We supplement him with hibiscus flowers and leaves, rose flowers, Bermuda grass hay and other dark green leafy greens. African Sulcata Tortoises do not hibernate, like the native California Desert Tortoise, they require an outdoor enclosure with a minimum space for a larger one of 30 x 30 and a heated type house to sleep in. They love water, but do not swim. They enjoy a mud bath in the summer to keep them cool as well as lay in. The yard must be secure and free of other animals. They get up to 200 lbs and live up to 100 years. The are good pets because: They are kept outdoors, are great for people with allergies to hair and are fun to have around. They interact well with people and love the attention when you feed them. The San Diego Turtle and Tortoise helps you decide if this type of Tortoise is right for you and your family. There is no adoption fee for the animals, but they do require you to become a member which is $25.00. Monthly meetings are in Balboa Park and the schedule is on their website. They are FREE to the public.

Abby is a happy 7-month-old Tortie, with short hair. Like all cats from the National Cat Protection Society, she's spayed, microchipped, de-wormed, vaccinated, tested for feline diseases and treated for fleas while at the shelter. Just a few short months ago, she was a bundle of energy, bouncing off the walls in the adoption center, but she's mellowed out quite a bit. She's litter box trained and loves everyone. Like Abby, most cats at National Cat Protection Society are very good with other cats, as the facility doesn't keep most of there cats in kennels all day....they're allowed to run around and play with each other and the visitors who come to meet them. In fact, if you're looking for a cage-free place to volunteer, check out the shelter on Birch Street in Spring Valley. Meanwhile, please call to inquire about Abby, as we'd love to see her become a part of a loving family as soon as possible.

Meet Carson, a 1.5 year old American Pit Bull mix. He's an adorable "Blue-Nose" boy with the sweetest face and big floppy ears. Carson is energetic, but don't be fooled...he loves his down time for naps and belly rubs! Carson loves his toys...especially the stuffed squeaky ones. He's still learning some doggie manners, like when he meets new canine friends, he gets so excited to play that he just runs up to them, and of course, he's being taught to bring it down a few notches. Carson loves to play with his furry friends, and he's ready for a forever loving family, If you're interested in meeting Carson please go to PassionForPitties.com, and fill out an adoption application. All Passion for Pitties dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, and micro chipped.

Randy is a very social, sweet, 4-year-old boy who loves all people! He's positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, FIV, but he's very healthy and could make an excellent companion for another cat with FIV, a virus that affects a cat's immune system. As long as they're not exposed to an unhealthy environment, they can live perfectly long, normal lives. It's a cat-only virus and can't be passed to humans or other species. It's usually transmitted during a cat fight, so Randy should be an only cat or live with another friendly FIV+ cat. He should also remain indoors. He's vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and comes with a free vet visit after adoption. Friends of Cats is located on Olde Highway 80, east of Lake Jennings Park Road in El Cajon. Open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 AM to 3:30 PM.
