A Face you can Love!
Look at that faaaaacccce! OMG, what a beautiful dog! And, so many other beautiful animals there at the Escondido Humane Society. Please...if you are considering a pet, adopt one from a shelter. The shelters are overwhelmed with animals right now due to the economy. Many people can no longer care for their pets due to moving, loss of job, etc.....
Our girl scout troop visited this local shelter and brought supplies for the animals. We also learned about the shelter and the animals through their educational program.
The kids got to see a millipede up close, an adorable gerbil, and a really unusual looking but very friendly English Trumpeter pigeon, as well as many dogs, cats, rabbits, and rats that are living at the shelter, waiting for homes.
For more photos from our day check out my flickr group. And go the Humane Society's web page for details on animals and to see their webcams. Also, during the month of October dog adoptions are 50% off and cat adoptions are $55. All adoption fees include vaccinations, spay or neuter, microchip and vet exam. Now is the time to adopt a loving pet!
