San Diego Humane Society Launches Innovative Adoption Process
In response to California’s ‘Stay at Home’ order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, San Diego Humane Society has changed its adoption process to a virtual experience.
SDHS campuses in Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego are open by appointment only each day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Interested adopters should call SDHS at 619-299-7012 to make an appointment. An adoption counselor will call the prospective adopter to conduct a virtual consultation over the phone to discuss available animals and help the adopter choose the animal who best fits their lifestyle. Once the pet is adopted, the adopter can drive up to the campus and SDHS staff will help safely load the animal into the adopter’s car.
San Diego Humane Society is encouraging any community member who is able to open their home and heart to a shelter pet in need. SDHS currently has more than 100 pets available for adoption.
