About Our Shelter:

The mission of the Escondido Humane Society is to promote responsible pet ownership by teaching compassion, respect and caring treatment for all living creatures. The Escondido Humane Society advocates the elimination of animal abuse, pet overpopulation and homelessness among companion animals and finds homes for surrendered, stray and abandoned animals.

The Escondido Humane Society Adoptions Department is open from 10am to 5pm, 7 days a week. We are located at 3450 E. Valley Parkway, Escondido, Ca 92027. Our direct line into the adoptions department is 760-888-2247. You can come in and see our available animals anytime during our business hours.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fees are $85.00 for adult cats and dogs. The fee for kittens and puppies is $110.00. We do have a senior discount. Once you have come in and taken a look at our adoptable animals if you are interested in adopting we have you fill out our pre-adoption questionaire. This is just some general information about yourselves so our adoption counselors can go over. If you have a landlord we require their approval before any adoption. Our adoption counselors are here to help you. We want to find the pet that is best suited for you and your family. The questionaire helps us help you. After you have gone through this process and interacted with the animal you can be approved for the adoption. After you have been approved our staff has some paperwork for you to fill out. With every adoption we give some information and how to take care of your new pet. We also give out obedience training information for dogs. Congratulations on your new pet!!!!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
