Pets of the Month – May 2021

This Pony Likes to Run

Pony is a 6-year-old, 90-pound, male, Hound mix. We heard one staff member walk by his kennel and declare, “It’s the Dog and Pony’s Show!”

Pony is a strong dog with a big personality and a lot of energy. He’s very friendly and just wants to play. Pony was a stray in Riverside County. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) transport program.

Pony will need an active family that will spend lots of time with him. It probably goes without saying that this Pony will need some room to run and gallop!

The $145 adoption fee for Pony includes medical exam, neuter surgery, updated 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.



Clarke Likes to Wrap Up in a Blanket

Clarke is an 8-year-old, 14-pound, male, Domestic Short Hair cat with a Red Tabby coat. Most people call a cat like Clarke an “Orange” Tabby. Technically, he’s a Red Tabby. There are just varying degrees of redness.

Someone left Clarke in the night drop at an animal shelter in Riverside County. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS) transport program.

Clarke has been staying in a foster home with one of our trained volunteers. There are adults and teenagers in Clarke’s foster home. He’s decided it’s okay to show people how sweet he really is. He loves his feather toys. If you put a blanket on your lap, Clarke will let you wrap him up, and then he purrs to show you he’s a contented kitty.

The $75 adoption fee for Clarke includes medical exam, neuter surgery, updated vaccinations, and registered microchip.


We think senior cats like Clarke and all seniors are very special.

In fact, the “Veterinary Care Assistance Program for Seniors” at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society provides financial assistance, resources, and support to senior pet parents (60 years and older) facing economic hardship in providing veterinary care for their adult pets.

Expenses include quality of life medical issues and emergency veterinary care. Applicants must be on a fixed or limited income. Financial documentation and a written estimate and treatment plan from an accredited San Diego County veterinarian is required. For more information, call Miss Colette at 760-579-2426, visit, or email
