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

NF Pets of the week

Dog of the Week: Barnaby (49880449)

Barnaby is a super cool dude who's getting very stressed in the shelter environment. He is very high-energy and should be adopted into a family that has a big backyard so he can endlessly play catch with his favorite tennis ball. He has met other dogs at the shelter with his same energy level and would love a buddy to play with in his furever home! Barnaby is two years old and 70 pounds, making him a great cuddle buddy and the perfect adventure partner. This cute boy has been at the shelter since March 31, 2022, and can't wait to have a loving family to call his own!

Cat of the Week: Birch (50772198)

Description automatically generatedBirch is an adorable 1-year-old Tabby that you'll just want to squeeze! He is very vocal and will loudly tell you exactly want he wants. When he's not taking a nap, he's typically asking for head scratches or to be cuddled. He loves playing with hair ties and any toy that has a feather attached (his favorite!). Birch hasn't been at the shelter too long, and hopes he will get adopted very soon!

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. All ready-to-go pets, defined as cats and dogs that have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, are $22 until further notice.
