SAN DIEGO—The San Diego Humane Society is in the midst of kitten season, so to make space for the influx of kittens coming into the shelter, the humane society is holding an adoption special for all adult cats.
Kicking off this weekend, July 5 and 6, the adoption fee for all adult cats will be just $17.76. This Independence Day promotion will allow the shelter to make space for the 1,500 kittens it expects to take in this year. The special will be held at all humane society locations in San Diego county.
The 4th of July holiday is a festive day of celebration for people, but it can be a terrifying time for pets due to the loud noises associated with fireworks and revelry. Also, pets spooked by the noise of fireworks, have been known to jump fences out of fear and confusion resulting in a higher number of stray animals entering the shelter post July 4th celebrations.
“There is typically a spike in the number of stray animals that we receive the day after a big holiday, like the 4th of July,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA. “We want to help pet owners take precautions to protect their pets on these busy holidays so that’s why we’re offering this 4th of July Pet Protection promotion.”
Licensing and microchipping pets helps reunite lost pets with their owners faster. In anticipation of the upcoming holiday, San Diego Humane Society is offering a 4th of July Pet Protection Plan. Now through July 3, free microchips and ID tags, and 25% off all Thundershirts to help reduce stress and anxiety in pets during holiday festivities.
If your pet does go missing, ensuring your pet is microchipped and licensed will assist in a quick reunion.The San Diego Humane Society is also now utilizing a new facial recognition app, Finding Rover, to quickly reunite lost dogs with their owners! It’s one more tool to get pets home faster. Be sure to register your dog’s photo on Finding Rover. It’s free! Learn more and register at http://www.findingrover.com/
