Crushes of the Month – January 2023


UPDATE: Willie has found his forever family!!

Look at that face! How could we not have a big ol’ crush on Willie?

He’s an 8.5-year-old, 56-pound, male Siberian Husky mix.  He was found stray with another Husky. They were taken to a nearby shelter, then transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS.)

Willie checks his surroundings to make sure everything is okay. Then he warms up right away. When he has something on his mind, he will “talk” to you about it. You might have heard him give a “speech” a few weeks ago on the Fox 5 Morning News.

His adopters will need to give Willie the time to warm up to his new surroundings and to all the new people he’s meeting. He could live with kids as young as 8.

The $75 adoption fee for Willie includes medical exam, neuter, up to date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if his new home is in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services.



We have a major crush on Jax, a 3-1/2-year-old, 12-pound male Domestic Short Hair cat with a blue and white coat.

In 2019 Jax was surrendered to Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He was adopted and spent three years with his family.

Jax was adopted with a littermate and never quite settled into his new home. He showed some behavior that suggests that he might be better in a home where he could be the focus of his owners’ attention and can be taught better litterbox skills.

He’s a shy cat who will need structure, particularly while he adjusts to his new home. Jax will need a safe space where he can observe his world. He should be restricted to one area while he figures out that he’s home.

The $100 adoption fee for Jax includes medical exam, neuter, up to date vaccinations, and registered microchip.
