At-Home Fun for Animal Lovers
Need a little something to take your mind off things? Animals are the perfect, good-for-the-soul distraction we all need right now. While we’re hard at work ensuring that all the animals in San Diego are safe, we’ve also been working to devise a few amusements to help you pass the time with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart. Here are just a few below.
I hope these activities will help bring you joy while you learn more about animals and the work taking place at San Diego Humane Society. We’re truly all in this together, and we’ll continue to be here for the animals and the people who love them. For now, enjoy this virtual content, stay inside and stay safe.
Take care of yourselves,
Gary Weitzman, DVM, MPH, CAWA

|Humane at Home: This Facebook Live series shares amazing content three times a week. So far we’ve met a one-eyed screech owl, fancy rats and other pocket pets, learned how to train dogs, had a hawk birthday party and met some of our amazing adoptable animals! Tune in Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 2 p.m. to watch live with your kids, so that you can ask questions and post comments in real time. You can watch past videos here.|
|Kitten Cam: Take a peek inside San Diego Humane Society's Kitten Nursery with the Purina Kitten Cam! Our Kitten Nursery is open around the clock and we’re putting some of our kitten’s shenanigans on display. You may not be aware, but it’s officially kitten season in San Diego, and with Purina's help we ensure the kittens in our care not only receive a lot of love, but also the very best nourishment during their most fragile stage of life.|
