Crushes of the Month – April 2023


Marnon is our April kennel Crush. He’s a 6.5-year-old, 14-pound, male, Chihuahua mix. He was transferred to us from a crowded rescue partner in Riverside County through our FOCAS program.

Marnon was relinquished because his owners were not able to provide adequate shelter for him. He lived with three other dogs, tied up in their backyard.

After Marnon got to RCHS, we took him to the Fox 5 Morning News. It didn’t take him long to figure out that, if you jump on the couch in the Green Room and smile, and all of the reporters, producers, directors, writers, and editors want to pet you. He craves affection!

His adoption fee of $145 includes medical exam, spay, up-to-date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if her new home is in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services.



Like the old song says, “Jeepers, Creepers. Where’d ya get those peepers?” Our kitty Crush for April is bright eyed Jenga.

He’s a 1.5-year-old, 9-pound, male, Domestic Short Hair Cat with a Brown Tabby coat. Jenga is an adult, but he still acts like a kitten.

He was transferred from a crowded rescue partner in Riverside County through our FOCAS program. Jenga had been left in a night drop box of that shelter with no prior history. During his time there, he stayed in a group room with several other male cats.

He was adopted, then returned four months later. His adopter told us that Jenga was too active for her so he’ll need a new home ready to keep up with his energy!

The $100 adoption fee for Jenga includes medical and behavior exams, neuter, up to date vaccinations, and registered microchip.
