Employee and Volunteer Picks

Of the many wonderful animals available at San Diego Humane Society, these pets are extra special because one of the Humane Society's staff or volunteers has chosen to nominate them as his or her Employee or Volunteer Pick.


Lilah (138762)

Volunteer: Shari N.

Lilah always has a smile and a wagging tail!Canine Enrichment Assistant, Shari N., can't say enough good things about volunteer & staff favorite alike, Lilah. We simply can't understand how the senior sweetheart has been in our care for so long, and we hope that someone out there will see passed her age (at 8 yrs old, she's BARELY a senior) and her breed (she's a pretty pittie) and come adopt this love at our Oceanside Campus on San Luis Rey Road!

What do you like best about her personality? 
"She is so friendly and loving."

What first drew you to your pick?
"Lilah came to my attention by the way she always barked to say hello when she saw me, and then when I came to her kennel to greet her, she was so loving and happy."

Is there something special about the way your pick looks?
"Lilah is a beautiful dog who seems to smile with her eyes and to genuinely appreciate attention and love."

What is her coolest/silliest/most fun trait?
"Lilah is awesome because she is full of energy and loves to play, but she also loves to snuggle. She loves it when I come inside her kennel to pet her, and she puts her head on my lap so we can relax together. She also loves toys and is very good at obeying commands."

Anything else you'd like to add?
"Lilah has been at the shelter for a long time and is so ready to go to her forever home.  She is a very special dog who has a love of life, is happy and loves to play, and is also very sweet and affectionate.  She would be a great addition to a family as she is fun, loving, and beautiful."


Newbo (154144)

Volunteer: Dana O.

Sweetheart Newbo Can't Wait to Meet You!Canine companion at our Oceanside Campus, Dana, simply loves sweet, affectionate Newbo. The 4-year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix has made quite an impression on many of the staff, as well, who love his wagging tail and kisses. He has seemed a little blue lately and in need of some extra cuddles and TLC which we, of course, are happy to provide, but we can't wait for him to find a loving home where he can lap up the love non-stop. He'll return it in spades, we promise!

Anything else you'd like to share?
"She is just the right age for a single person in a quiet home - she's 6 years old - the perfect 'middle age'! She's no a rowdy high-maintenance teenager, she's settled and calm and in good health. She has been in the San Diego Humane Society's care for many months and she is waiting for the right person to take her home so she can be a shining light in their life!"
