I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
'"Hola, amigos! My name is CHACHA, and I'm a cute little munchkin who's looking for a kind and patient human companion. I like other dogs a lot, too, so I'd be a good friend for another nice doggie. I'm a five-year-old Chihuahua girl who's quite small, which is a good size for curling up in your lap. Please understand that it takes me some time to gain trust in a new person, especially with all the noise and activity at the shelter, so please be patient with me out in the lovely play yard here at the shelter. I promise that I'm worth the wait. Once I know you, I'm all yours. I'd probably do best in a quiet, adult home, or in one where the kids are older and very considerate of me. I'll be at ease in a home where life is fairly calm and predictable. Please come visit me here at the El Cajon Animal Shelter so we can get better acquainted. I'm really looking forward to making friends with you, then maybe we can go home together and I can start the new chapter of my life. Hope to see you soon! Love, Chacha"
We are the Animal Shelter for the City of El Cajon. We also house animals for the City of La Mesa. We take in strays and animals relinquished by their owners from these two City's only. We adopt out the animals that are not claimed by their owners. You do not have to live within the City to adopt an animal from us. We sometimes have animals other than dogs and cats.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are located in the City of El Cajon which is east of San Diego. 1275 N. Marshall is two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway, Marshall runs parallel with the trolley tracks.
We are open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm. The latest we start an adoption is 4:30. We are closed Sundays and Mondays.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee for dogs is $80.00 and cats are $80.00 All other animal adoption fee's are based on the type of animal.
We do an evaluation with you and the animal to be sure that it is the best animal for you. We require that all children in the household under 9 years old be evaluated with the animal and if you are adopting a dog and you currently own a dog, your dog needs to be evaluated with the new dog to be sure they get along.
