Hi, I’m Reed! Let me tell you a bit about myself: When I first meet you I’m a little shy, but after we have time to bond you will get to watch my funny, dynamic personality blossom and shine through. I find cats pretty boring, but one of my favorite hobbies is bird chasing – I mean bird watching 😉 Hey, was “getting more exercise” on your New Year’s Resolution list? If it was – I’m your man! I love long walks and would even make an awesome running buddy. And what’s more? I make a great napping buddy, too! Between walks you can find me snoozing on, well, anything cozy! My foster parents said I’m ready to start dating, but there’s gotta be some ground rules first – I’m looking for a long term relationship. I’ve got a sensitive side and am really looking to connect, so no speed dating for me! I also need to be the only furry love in your life. I’m a one-on-one kind of guy. If you’re ready to spend the rest of our life together staring into my big beautiful eyes, fill out an application for me today!

Reed is staying with a wonderful volunteer in a Foster home until he finds his forever home. If you would like more information about Reed and our adoption process, please call the shelter at (760) 753-6413.

About Rancho Coastal Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) was formed in 1960 by a group of hardworking volunteers, led by animal lover Maria K. Lloyd. The goal was and continues to be to care for the homeless animal population of San Diego County and to educate the public about pet over-population and responsible companion animal care.

In the nearly 57 years since our inception, RCHS has grown from a small facility run by volunteers to a professionally managed humane society that provides quality shelter care, adoption services, education programs and an animal safehouse program for the survivors of domestic violence.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

One of RCHS' main goals is the adoption of animals to permanent, loving homes. RCHS' adoption process is tailored to find the best match between pets and people.


Before you can see (that is, pet, cuddle, walk, and get to know) any animal you've seen in our kennels, we'll ask you to complete some paperwork. This paperwork must be completed first in order to minimize stress for you and the animals. Our process includes asking questions in order to make the best match between animal and owner. We like to gain a better understanding about your expectations, past experiences, and current animals at home.

Once all the paperwork has been satisfactorily completed, you may handle and visit the animal you're interested in. You'll have a counseling session with a knowledgeable member of our staff who will fill you in on the history and needs of that animal, and his feeding and exercise requirements. You can ask your counselor any questions about spaying or neutering, housetraining, obedience training, scratching (in cats), veterinary care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and anything else you can think of.

You will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. We will provide you with a list of all items and medical treatments that are included in your adoption fee.
