[ARCHIVED] San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

POTW July 21, 2022

Dog of the Week: Bosco (49599966)

Bosco is a handsome 2-year-old who loves playing outside and is always up for an adventure. He likes to pick his dog friends, so if you're interested in adopting this cutie, bring your pup to the shelter to have an interaction with Bosco to see if he approves! Bosco loves spending time outside running around and playing fetch. If you're looking for an adventure buddy, look no further! Bosco has been looking for a furever home since February 15, 2022. That's 156 days without a loving family. Shelter staff has even caught him sitting in the corner of his kennel, facing the wall, looking very sad. Will you give Bosco a second chance at a full life? Because Bosco is a guardian angel, he has NO adoption fee. Adopt him today!

Cat of the Week: Theon (50424815)

Don't you think Theon is the cutest panther you've ever seen? But don't tell him that! He likes to keep a tough exterior, even though he's a big cuddle bug. Theon loves to explore and has always been interested in one of those cool catio contraptions, so enjoy the great outdoor without going too far away from his human. If you have yummy treats and plenty of time to give Theon lots of attention, you'll have a new best friend! Since this handsome fella is healthy and only 2 years old, you will be able to make loads of memories. Come meet him!
