February 2022 – Crushes of the Month


Thor has Been Practicing His Manners and is Ready for a New “Forever” Home

We have a huge crush on Thor! He’s a handsome 2-year- old, 73-pound, male Pointer mix. He was at a shelter in Mississippi. There was a hurricane on the way. Pets were transferred out of the area to make room for the evacuated pets who would be arriving.

Thor was brought to Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program. That was in September of 2020. He was adopted but returned last July. His owners felt he needed more training than they could provide.

Thor is one of our “Fresh Start” dogs. RCHS supporters have donated more than $700 to provide his adopters with a harness, leash, collar, toys, Bully sticks, Black Wing Farms sprays, and 6 in-home training sessions with his new adopter.

The $145 adoption fee for Thor includes medical exam, neuter, vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if the adopter lives in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services.



Peanut Gave Us Her Kittens and Now We Need to Give Her a “Forever” Family

Peanut is the current kitty crush at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS). She’s a 2-year-old, 7-1/2-pound, female Domestic Short Hair cat with a Torbie (Tortoiseshell/Tabby) coat.

Peanut and her five kittens were surrendered by their owner. They went into foster care with a trained RCHS volunteer. When the kittens were old enough, all five of them were adopted. Now it’s this little Mama’s turn to begin her new life.

The care providers in the Cattery say that she’s relaxed, soft and comfortable while interacting with people. She is also described as high-energy, independent, and playful.

The $100 adoption fee for Peanut includes medical exam, spay, vaccinations, and registered microchip.
