Pet of the Week April 1st, 2010



Fletcher is a handsome 3-year-old neutered male orange tabby mix, ID # 44880. Fletcher is a big guy with an even bigger heart – and personality. He is very friendly and craves attention from his people friends. He just wants to be with you, whether it’s snuggling or playing with string. Fletcher gets along well with other cats, but he can be a little jealous because he wants your attention all to himself. Fletcher is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. His $110 adoption fee includes neuter, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and wellness exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to

One of our foster dogs, Gigi (a Chihuahua mix), gave birth on 2/19/10 to a litter of 7 pups. These pups will be available for adoption about 4/17/10. There are 5 females and 2 males that are different colors--black and white, brown and white, tricolor, brindle, black and tan. We estimate them to be between 15-18 lbs when fully grown. All ARRF adoptees will have up-to-date shots, be micro-chipped, and will have been spayed/neutered when they become adoptable. Generally speaking, puppies should be good with gentle children, dogs, and cats. Prospective adopters should have someone either at home during the day or able to make frequent visits during the day. Adopters must agree to go to positive reinforcement classes. In addition to the adoption fee, ARRF will collect a $50 deposit that is refundable upon proof of class attendance within 6 months of adoption. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT DANA at or call 760-930-1317.

Yes, they are cutie pies.

And they’re so new they don’t yet have names. We’ll leave that to you.

Naming a kitten is a special act, best left to the new kitten’s family of humans.

Check them out! At the Escondido Humane Society
