The discount continues today and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., making it easier for people to afford adoption fees and add a member to the family. On Friday, 83 animals were adopted from the Black Friday sale, according to the Humane Society.
This weekend, cats will be $16.25, dogs $23.75, puppies $48.75, kittens $31.25, and bunnies and senior dogs and cats, $6.25. Hamsters and other small birds and rodents will set adopters back just $1.25.
The San Diego Humane Society has three locations in the county. The San Diego campus is at 5500 Gaines St., the Escondido campus is at 3450 E. Valley Parkway and the Oceanside campus for dogs is at 2905 San Luis Rey Road and 572 Airport Road, for cats and small animals.
Last week, the San Diego Humane Society rescued 53 hoarder rabbits from harsh living conditions in El Cajon. Upon their arrival, they were examined by their medical team. Despite their unfortunate circumstances, the rabbits were found to be in good health.
“Our goal at San Diego Humane Society is to end animal suffering and we’re committed to helping all animals within our reach,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, President and CEO of San Diego Humane Society. “Protecting animals is our mission and our Humane Officers are sworn in under oath in the state of California to protect animals from cruelty and neglect. These animals deserve a second chance, so we don’t hesitate.”
Less than a month ago, the organization also offered refuge to 29 dogs saved from the korean meat trade, as part of a Humane Society international rescue effort.
The society is currently on track to take care of 20,000 domestic and about 12,000 wild animals this year.
