San Diego Humane Society Kicks Off “Back to School: Adopt a Study Buddy” with Special Adoption Promotions

Cat overpopulation is a significant issue in our community, and in the midst of kitten season, the problem is even more prevalent. As a result, shelters become overcrowded with cats. The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA (SDHS) has more than 650 cats and the San Diego County Department of Animal Services (DAS) has more than 550 cats in their care today. To help find a home for these cats, SDHS and DAS are partnering together and reducing adult cat adoption fees to just $5, August 24th through the end of September.  

“This year alone we’ve taken in more than 830 cats and kittens from overcrowded shelters in our community. The purpose of this adoption campaign is to encourage everyone to consider adoption when looking to add a pet to your family,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.  “Every animal adopted makes space for another animal that’s in need of care, so our goal is to help all animals find a home as quickly as possible.”

Special Offers and Promotions:
Adoption fees for all adult and senior cats 7 months of age and older will be reduced to $5

For SDHS adoptions only, cat adopters will also receive a $5 credit to Muttique, the San Diego Humane Society’s retail store.

Other Muttique specials include:
o   Soft Claws for Cats – 50% off
o   Cat Toys – Buy 2 get 1 free
o   Cat Trees & Scratching posts – 25% off
