Puppies Rescued by our Humane Law Enforcement are Ready to Find Homes
The 9 puppies who were rescued by our Humane Law Enforcement after their stray mother took shelter under a van to protect her newborns from the rain, are now old enough to find their future homes. The five girls and four boys are eight weeks old, and have been spayed or neutered and fully vaccinated. The female puppies will become available for adoption on Thursday, May 20, 2021, and the male puppies will become available on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
Those interested in adopting should visit sdhumane.org/adopt, search for the puppies via their name or Animal Identification Number and follow the special directions in each puppy’s profile. Interest will be high for these puppies. Inquiries will be evaluated and served on a first-come, first-served basis.

The puppies and mom were rescued on March 25, 2021, when our Humane Law Enforcement responded to a report of a stray dog who just delivered a litter of puppies in the 5200 block of La Paz Drive, 92114. When Humane Officers arrived, they found a mother dog who had taken shelter under a van during the rain, where she gave birth to 10 puppies. Humane Officers carefully pulled them out, one by one. Sadly, one puppy was not alive, but the other nine appeared healthy. The mother dog and her puppies were taken to our Pilar & Chuck Bahde Center for Shelter Medicine, where veterinarians performed detailed exams. For a full week, they were all closely monitored by the medical team and animal care staff to ensure they were healthy, growing and thriving. Mom and all nine puppies were then transferred to a foster family, so they could be together and comfortable in a home while the puppies grew. Mom did not have a microchip and no owner came forward. She has been adopted into a home that fits her special needs.
